Same Corrupt Foundation

Title Pic: The Link Bvetween the HCS Bible (Southern Baptist) and The NWT Bible (Jehovahs Witness)

Same Corrupt Bible

In the Garden of Eden, Satan convinced Eve to alter the very words of God. Unfortunately, he has now found some new and very willing accomplices in the publishing houses and seminaries. Through the modern versions, men's thoughts have been replacing God's words at an alarming rate. Sadly, even the Southern Baptists have created their own version of the Bible.

The fact that the Holman Christian Standard Bible ® originates from the same corrupt Greek and Hebrew manuscripts is the Jehovah's Witnesses' New World Translation (NWT) makes every dedicated Southern Baptist cringe.

The sampling of errors contained herein prove that the HCSB ® produced by the Southern Baptist hierarchy, much like the NWT, produced by the Jehovah's Witnesses undermines the deity of Jesus Christ, salvation by grace and many other key Bible doctrines.

Salvation by grace is diminished by the Southern Baptist and Jehovah's Witnesses' versions. Among many other problems, both eliminate the single reference to Calvary while teaching that salvation takes place over time and is difficult to attain.

~Salvation Over Time?~

(KGB) 1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Holman CSB ® NWT
“For to those who are perishing the message of the cross is foolishness, but to us who are being saved it is God's power.” “For the speech about the torture stake is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us whoare being saved it is God's power.”

~Salvation Is Difficult?~

(KJB) Mark 10:24 ...But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!

Holman CSB ® NWT
“...Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!” “...Children, how difficult a thing it is to enter into the kingdom of God!”

~Object of Our Belief~

(KJB) John 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

Holman CSB ® NWT
“I assure you: Anyone who believes has eternal life.” “Most truly I say to YOU, He that believes has everlasting life.”

~Through His Blood~

(KJB) Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins

Holman CSB ® NWT
“in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” “By means of whom we have our release by ransom, the forgiveness of our sins.”

~Did Christ Come to Save?~

(KJB) Luke 9:55-56 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. (56) for the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

Holman CSB ® NWT
“(55) But He turned and rebuked them, (56) and they went to another village.” “(55) But he turned and rebuked them (56) So they went to a different village.”

(KJB) Matthew 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

Holman CSB ® NWT
Verse Bracketed Verse Omitted

~Christ MAKES us Righteous~

(KJB) 2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Holman CSB ® NWT
“ that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” “...that we might become God's righteousness by means of him.”

(KJB) Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation...

Holman CSB ® NWT
“In Him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation...” “But you also hoped in him after YOU heard the word of truth, the good news about YOUR salvation...”


(KJB) Luke 23:33 And when they were come to the place, which is called the Calvary, there they crucified him...

Holman CSB ® NWT
“When they arrived at the place called The Skull, they crucified Him there...” “And when they got to the place called Skull, there they impaled him...”

~Christ Fell from Heaven?~

I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. (Revelation 22:16)

(KJB) Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

The book of Revelation correctly identifies Jesus as the morning star; and the book of Isaiah (KJB) identifies Lucifer as the fallen angel. Look at the One the HCSB ® blasphemously cites as having fallen from heaven. It is not Lucifer but Jesus Christ, the morning star of Revelation chapter 22, above!

Holman CSB ® Isaiah 14:12 Shining morning star, Or Day Star, son of the dawn how you have fallen from the heavens! You destroyer of nations, you have been cut down to the ground.

~Christ Came in the Flesh~

(KJB) 1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confsseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

Holman CSB ® NWT
“But every spirit who does not confess Jesus is not from God...” “but every inspired expression that does not confess Jesus does not originate with God...”

(KJB) 1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh...

Holman CSB ® NWT
“...He was manifested in the flesh...” “...He was made manifest in the flesh...”

~Christ Sacrificed FOR US~

(KJB) 1 Corinthians 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

Holman CSB ® NWT
“for us” OMITTED “for us” OMITTED

~Christ Purged our Sins?~

(KJB) Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Holman CSB ® NWT
“by himself” OMITTED “by himself” OMITTED

~Christ Made us Heir?~

(KJB) Galatians 4:7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

Holman CSB ® NWT
“through Christ” OMITTED “through Christ” OMITTED

~Christ Became the Son?~

(KJB) Acts 13:33 ... as it is also written in the second psalm Thou art my Son, This day I have begotten thee.

Holman CSB ® NWT
“... Today I have become Your Father.” “...I have become your Father this day.”

Acts chapter 13 refers to Christ's resurrection, when He became the first-begotten from the dead. There never was a time when Christ was not the eternal Son of God. You can prove this by looking at the book of Daniel where He is addressed as the Son of God before His becoming a man on this earth.

(KJB) Daniel 3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

Holman CSB ® NWT
“...the fourth looks like a son of the gods.” “the fourth one is resembling a son of the gods.”

The HCSB ® compounds the error by making Christ, God's ONLY son. The HCSB ® repeatedly refers to Christ as “the One and Only Son” and not “the only begotten Son” as in the King James Bible (See John 1:14, 1:18, and 3:16). If Christ is God's ONLY son, are Christians no longer His sons?

~Christ was Created?~

(KJB) Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from old, from everlasting.

Holman CSB ® NWT
“...His origin is from antiquity, from eternity.” “...whose origin is from early times, from the day of time indefinite.”

Both the Holman CSB ® and the NWT attribute an origin to Christ. If Christ is a created being He would have an origin! Jesus is the eternal, only begotten Son of God. The Bible points this out in John 4:9: “In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.” He sent Him, NOT created Him!

~Christ No Longer Judge!~

(KJB) Romans 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

Holman CSB ® NWT
“...the judgment seat of God.” “...the judgment seat of God.”

~Christ Sinned?~

(KJB) Matthew 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment...

Holman CSB ® NWT
“...everyone who is angry with his brother...” “everyone who continues wrathful with his brother...”

~Christ on the Throne?~

(KJB) Acts 2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne

Holman CSB ® NWT
“ seat one of his descendants...” “... seat one from the fruitage of his loins...”

~Christ's Blood Redeems!~

(KJB) Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Holman CSB ® NWT
“through his blood” OMITTED “through his blood” OMITTED

~Christ's God?~

(KJB) Revelation 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Holman CSB ® NWT
“to His God and Father...” “ his God and Father...”

The King James Bible clearly points out that Jesus is God the Son and He has a heavenly Father! This verse indisputably proves Christ's deity — He is God! Both the HCSB ® and the NWT make Jesus have a God by referring to HIS God. This verse is used by Jehovah's Witnesses to teach that Jesus was a lesser created god. Regrettably, both the Holman CSB ® and the NWT can be used to teach this same blasphemy.

~Christ No Longer Creator?~

(KJB) Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

Holman CSB ® NWT
“by Jesus Christ” OMITTED “by Jesus Christ” OMITTED

~Christ's Earthly Father?~

(KJB) Luke 2:33 And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.

Holman CSB ® NWT
“And its father and mother...” “And its father and mother...”

Only God manifest in the flesh could satisfy the righteous requirements of the Law. God Himself became the sacrificial Lamb. Satan knows that he must destroy this truth.

~The Lost go to Tatarus?~

(KJB) 2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell...

Holman CSB ® NWT
For if God didn't spare the angels who sinned, but threw them down into Tartarus... Certainly if God did not hold back from punishing the angels that sinned, but, by throwing them into Tartarus...

Despite the immense doctrinal variations between the King James Bible and all of the updated bibles, many of the modern version supporters fail to admit the problems associated with these differences. Most people do not realize the extent to which the changes align every modern version with the Christ rejecting Jehovah's Witness New World Translation (NWT). The Southern Baptist hierarchy should know better. It is up to you to do something about it!
