'Easy-To-Read Version' (ERV) Says it is Hard to Enter into God's Kingdom
(Beware of counterfeit Bible revisions that pervert the holy Words of God)
by David J. Stewart | August 2016
11:3, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve
through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”
Repeatedly in the precious Scriptures we are taught that getting saved is free, simple and easy. Getting saved is as easy as drinking a glass of water, if that water is Jesus. John 4:10, “Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.” Notice that Jesus said the water of life (salvation) is a “gift,” and that the woman at the well simply needed to ask Him to receive it. Getting saved is as easy as walking through a door, if that door is Jesus. John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” Our text verse above calls the Gospel (Good News) “the simplicity that is in Christ” (2nd Corinthians 11:3). It is that simple to be saved. Christ died, that's history; Christ died for me, that's salvation!
If you admit that you are a guilty sinner in God's eyes, and you receive Christ's sacrificial death on the cross as full-payment for your sins, believing that He was buried, and bodily raised up from the dead 72 hours later, you are saved. It is that simple!!! With this simple truth in mind, now take a look at how Satan has perverted the modern Bible revisions to complicate getting saved. Here is a comparison of Mark 10:24 between the trustworthy King James Bible (KJB), and the corrupted Easy-To-Read version (ERV), the New International Version (NIV), and the Southern Baptist Convention's exclusive, Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB). ...
KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB) - Mark 10:24, “And the disciples were astonished at his words. 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!”
ENGLISH STANDARD VERSION (ESV) - Mark 10:24, “And the disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said to them again, “Children, how difficult it is to enter the kingdom of God!”
EASY-TO-READ VERSION (ERV) - Mark 10:24, “The followers were amazed at what Jesus said. But he said again, “My children, it is very hard to enter God’s kingdom!”
NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION (NIV) - Mark 10:24, “The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!”
HOLMAN CHRISTIAN STANDARD BIBLE (HCSB) - Mark 10:24, “But the disciples were astonished at His words. Again Jesus said to them, ”
I've just given you another example (of literally thousands that exist) of satanic corruption in the modern Bible revisions.
The King James Bible says that those who trust in riches will have a hard time entering into God's kingdom, because they are trusting in their riches instead of the Gospel. People with lots of money have a hard time believing on Jesus Christ, which requires humbling one's self enough to admit being a guilty sinner who cannot save our self. Wealthy people are used to relying upon themselves and their own riches. To be saved you must trust completely upon the Lord Jesus Christ! The satanic Alexandrian manuscripts (as evidenced in the preceding quotes from the ERV, NIV and HCSB) corrupt the Word of God, saying instead that it is hard to enter into God's kingdom. That is not what the King James Bible teaches. The new perverted Bible revisions are missing the phrase, “that trust in riches,” rendering the Word of God a lie. Why, Oh why, would any sensible pastor, Bible teacher or Christian want to use today's satanic Bible revisions that butcher the inspired Words of God???
If you show this vital information to your pastor, but he doesn't care and still chooses to use and/or support the modern Bible revisions, you need to leave that church and find a real man of God. Something is VERY wrong with a pastor that doesn't care about the purity of God's Words! God loathes neo-evangelical Baptist preachers today who are lukewarm, who use multiple Bible revisions and don't have enough spiritual discernment (or just don't care due to ecclesiastical peer pressure) to stand upon the Words of God! They claim to care about the truth, while promoting conflicting manuscripts of the Bible. I mean, either it is hard to get into Heaven, or it is easy. It cannot be both! One Bible is very correct, and the other is very wrong!
Gone, Gone, Gone... Yes, Acts 8:37 is Gone! - Unless You Have a King James Bible!
There is not a greater threat to the world today than the modern, Alexandrian, watered-down, corrupted, Beelzebub, perverted, copyrighted, Westcott and Hort translated, Bible revisions! WHAT A CRUEL HOAX ON THE CHURCHES!
Satan's NIV Revision Teaches Salvation By Water Baptism: Removes Acts 8:37 Completely
Here is Acts 8:37 quoted from the Easy-To-Read Version (ERV)...
Acts 8:37 -
That's right, it doesn't exist!!! Look for yourself! So now the new satanic Bible revisions teach that you can get into Heaven just by being water baptized. Verse 37 says you can only be water baptized IF YOU BELIEVE ON THE SON OF GOD! Verse 37 is critically important, don't you think? These new Bible revisions are of the Devil. Would somebody please wake up today's dead pastors and lame preachers, who couldn't care less!!! It is hard to grasp the dark reality that most pastors today are blinded by the Devil. They tolerate the plethora of modern Bible revisions, despite the insane fact that due to copyright restrictions they all read differently. If you don't like what one Bible revision says, then you can just read from another, and another, and another. This is wickedness! God only authored ONE BOOK folks, not hundreds!
Neo-evangelical churches and ministries are serving mammon instead of God. Luke 16:13, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” There is no middle ground. You either love God and stand for the truth at all cost, or else you love money and make excuses to shirk off your duty as a child of God to stand for truth. Although they would never admit to such shameful and wicked behavior, there is no other explanation for supporting the Devil's Bible versions. They choose to go-along-to-get-along, for the sake of acceptance by their ministry peers and job security. And may I say, the King James is the Bible, not a “version.” If you don't have a King James Bible, you don't have a Bible! Satan is trying to confuse everybody by publishing literally hundreds of English Bible versions. If you have a King James Bible, you have God's preserved and inspired Words!!!
BATTLE OF THE AGES (Dr. Hyles, “The King James Bible crowd is going to come out on top!”)
Nearly every pastor who uses, tolerates, and refuses to expose the corrupt Alexandrian Bible manuscripts has been warned, but he doesn't care. Bob Jones University (BJU) and Moody Bible Institute (MBI) have been warned repeated about the Bible issue, but they are stiffnecked with stubborn pride. As Satan has relentlessly changed the Words of God into a lie over the past half-century, these religious institutions have stood idle, going along to get along with mainstream evangelicalism! In so doing, they have helped the enemy! They are now on enemy territory, pulling on the same rope as the Devil! People in the churches are as confused as ever! God is not the author of confusion (1st Corinthians 14:33), but Satan is!
The Devil fully knows that the most effective deception is the half-truth. For example: When the Devil perverts the plan of salvation, he starts off with the truth that eternal life is a gift. So he'll tell you that getting saved is a gift, but then he'll add the unbiblical requirement to “turn from your sins” also. So now the Devil has you foolishly thinking that salvation is a gift that you must do something to get. You've been deceived!
Whereas God has told Adam and Eve they could freely eat of every tree in the Garden of Eden except one (Genesis 2:16-17), the serpent (Satan) lied to Eve and convinced her that God told them not to eat from any of the trees (Genesis 3:1). Satan tricked Eve by presenting his lie in the form of a question. Satan is very subtle. Where do you think the ungodly newsmedia gets their training? That's right, from the Devil who is their spiritual father.

Beware of Satan's Poison Apples
My friend, Satan is a big liar! The Devil is deceiving the whole world, even most of the churches (Revelation 12:9). But you don't have to be deceived if you're a born-again Christian who walks with God, abiding in the King James Bible! You show me a professed Christian who doesn't make a fuss over which Bible version is accurate, and I'll show you a weak believer (if they're saved at all), who doesn't truly walk close to the Lord. Amos 3:3, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” How can any Christian walk with God in a dozen Bible revisions? You cannot! God's Words are incorruptible. We are born-again by the incorruptible Word of God. 1st Peter 1:23, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” A person cannot be born anew from corruptible words!!! You've seen how the new Bible revisions pervert mark 10:24 and Acts 8:37.
In John 3:16, the new versions completely remove the word “begotten” concerning Jesus as the Son of God. I am an adopted son of God, and so is every believer (John 1:12). Romans 8:15 says we cry out to God, “whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” God has many sons, but Jesus is the only “BEGOTTEN” (biological) Son of God. That's an important truth. Hence, all of the modern Bible revisions teach heresy, claiming that Jesus is God's “only son,” because Jesus is not God's only son. Jesus is God's only “begotten” Son. Amen!
The moral of this lesson is very clear... use only the precious KING JAMES BIBLE. If you have any of the modern Bible PERversions, rip them up and throw them away, or burn them in your barbeque! Do the Lord a favor! God loves when His children are hot, not lukewarm. God doesn't want us to be cold, that is, carnal; but Revelation 3:15-16 teaches that God would much rather prefer for us to be cold than lukewarm (middle of the road). The corrupt Bible revision crowd are unsaved. You cannot be born again from corruptible word. There are many Christians who were saved under the King James Bible, but due to sinful compromise with the ecumenical movement, have embraced the Devil's dirty dozen as well!
The average neo-evangelical churchgoer uses about a dozen favorite Bible revisions (of literally hundreds of English revisions available) to form their warped theology. I call these the “Devil's dirty dozen”! Some neo-evangelicals are saved, most are not! The heresy of “turning from sins” to be saved (aka, Lordship Salvation) originates in the Alexandrian, Egypt, Bible perversions. Turning from sins is a work, which is effectively the same thing as keeping the works of the law to be saved, which God forbids. Romans 3:20, “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” God's law (i.e., the Ten Commandments) makes our sin exceedingly sinful (Romans 7:13), showing us our guilty condition when we break God's commandments, so that we may become guilty before God (Romans 3:19).
Eternal life and forgiveness of sins is a free gift (Ephesians 2:8-10). A gift may simply be taken. You cannot require anything more of the recipient of a gift, other than to take it, otherwise it ceases to be a gift. It is easy, free and simple to get to Heaven!
John 8:32 and 36, “And ye shall know the
truth, and the truth shall make you free ...
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
