Is God the Savior of All…..Truth or Error?

Bible Translations…………..Truth and Error

The King James Only People claim that the 1611 KJAV is a divinely translated Bible. An honest investigation will show that is not true. By the time the King James Translators began their work the church was steeped in false doctrines and error. Most translators being human are biased and so their personal theology will be found in their translations. The King James Authorized Version of 1611 preface states, “Another thing we think good to admonish thee of, gentle reader, that we have not tied ourselves to an uniformity of phrasing, or to an identity of words….For is the kingdom of God become words or syllables? Why should we be in bondage to them, if we may be free? Use one precisely, when we may use another no less fit as commodiously?”

Do you see what they said? They wanted to be free from using the exact words dictated by Holy Spirit….!!!! They ask, “Is the Kingdom of God tied to Words or Syllables…..?” You bet it is, but they thought not! I find this very arrogant and stupid? They are saying they knew the mind of God so well that they could choose other words that they felt were better able to express His thoughts to you, the gentle reader. They say, trust us to teach you!

Now this is the KJAV 1611 of which the KJ only people vehemently state: there is no other Bible, allowable to read. They are telling us we are heretics if we look below the surface and check the Hebrew and Greek words used by God Himself. These people are following a group of translators who saw fit to change Gods Words as they deemed proper to do so and we are to accept those changes as the inspired words of God….I don’t think so! That is why it is called…translating! They honor a translation rather than honoring Gods Word and we need to be doing everything in our power to find the true understanding of God’s words.

We should search out the meanings of the original languages, Hebrew and Greek words; we are not to meekly accept this translation with its archaic English as the infallible word of God. That is ludicrous…..!!! Many words in the scriptures have been wrongly translated in the King James AV of 1611, but some of the really important words wrongly translated and needing a correct understanding of are Hell, Soul and Eternal

Through faulty translation the fires of Gehenna have been placed in Sheol, which by its own definition is the abode of all the dead, the just and the unjust and not a place of torment. Sheol is the Hebrew word for the place of the unseen…referred to and accepted by the prophets and writers of the Old Testament as the grave for the dead to sleep in, until time for the resurrections.

Gehenna was the name of a large gorge or valley just outside of the city of Jerusalem. It was used as the garbage dump. The city of Jerusalem had a wall around it and that wall had 12 gates. Each gate had its own name suited for its purpose, such as the horse gate and the sheep gate. It seems they were very organized…no horses mingling with sheep when entering or exiting!

Now the one we want to discuss led out to the garbage dump and was named the dung gate. It was through this gate that the dung, the garbage and trash from the city were hauled and thrown into this gorge which was kept burning continually with brimstone added as a purifying agent which would keep the fires smoldering. This was where also dead animals and dead criminals were thrown. A criminal was deemed unworthy or unjust for a memorial tomb and thus was cast into the fires of Gehenna.

This was a shameful burial under the Jewish belief system; because to end up there showed a worthless life. The Jews name for a burial tomb was a memorial tomb, so named as they believed they were to be kept in Gods memory until resurrection day. They knew nothing of going to heaven at death from their scrolls of scriptures written by their many prophets.

The favorite quote by the Hellfire believers “the worm dieth not” is explained very simply despite the myth of hellfire. These worms were literally maggots, which would be feeding on any garbage or flesh from animals that may have caught on some rocks above the smoldering fires. To say the worms were in the fire and did not die would teach worms are immortal and just as false as, the teaching that humans have an immortal soul which lives on after death, a myth derived from Satan’s original lie and centuries of pagan superstitions, perpetrated by demonic forces on humanity.

When Jesus warned the Jews that a person’s bad conduct would not get them into the Kingdom but instead they would be cast into Gehenna, which is wrongly translated as Hell, He was referring to their garbage dump, Gehenna and the shame associated with not being placed in a memorial tomb but thrown in with the garbage and that implied a resurrection with the unjust class. He was not teaching of an eternal place of fiery torment.

But make note the translators in 1611 had been deceived into believing the lie of Hellfire and so they made little adjustments in their translating work. The King James translators wrongly translated Sheol, Gehenna, and Tartarus with the English word Hell.

Tartarus is a prison for sinning angels, described as a watery gloomy place and not a fiery hell and is spoken of at 2 Peter 2:4. These “spirit messengers” most likely those who we read about in Genesis 6 who left their natural estate in the spirit realm and also could mean gave up their spiritual bodies in order to take on human bodies….and were not allowed to take them back when the flood came and instead were locked away.

Their sin was for entering humanity’s estate, marrying women and bringing forth the hybrid race of the Nephelim, It seems these are the spirits which are imprisoned there and are who Jesus heralded the evangel of the cross to, showing Jehovah as victorious over death brought into humanity by Satan and these spirits. Manual Two has a lengthy study just finished…November of 2008 on this subject.

But Peter’s words are wrongly taught to be the sprits of people in hell. Today the belief in Hellfire can partly be blamed on faulty translating and partly that the pagan nations taught such a myth to keep their people in line and that practice was adopted by the Jewish Pharisees and of course after the death of the Apostles this lie used to keep believers in Christ in line as just one of many false doctrines that became part of the so called Christian Church system.

The Catholic Church wanted to conquer the world for Christ; they used this false doctrine to scare people into becoming Catholics. I will flat out state they did not do this for Christ, they did this to fill their coffers with money! The accurate word in these following passages is Gehenna and not Hell. Matthew 5:22, 29,30; Matthew 10:28; Matthew 18:9; Matthew 23:15,33; James 3:6; Mark 9:43,45,47; Luke 12:5.

And last but not least, the apostle Paul did indeed, teach that God was the Savior of All and the final outcome of Christ’s work on the cross would fulfill Isaiah 45:23 as Paul quotes it at Philippians 2:9-11 “Wherefore, also, God highly exalts Him and graces Him with the name that is above every name, that in the name of Jesus every knee should be bowing, celestial and terrestrial and subterranean and every tongue should be acclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord, for the glory of God the Father”

Paul also wrote this another time, at Romans 14:11 “Living am I, the Lord is saying,
For to Me shall bow every knee, And every tongue shall be acclaiming God!”

Romans 11:36 “O, the depth of the riches and the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How inscrutable are His judgments and untraceable His ways! For, who knew the mind of the Lord? Or, who became His advisers? Or who gives to Him first, and it will be repaid him? Seeing that out of Him and through Him and for Him is all; to Him be the glory for the eons! Amen!”

King David was inspired to say at Psalms 110:1 “I make thine enemies a footstool” This Prophetic verse is repeated 8 times in the Greek Scriptures with Paul using it and explaining it at 1 Corinthians 15:27, 28 Death is the enemy of humanity, inherited from Adam, mankind doomed to a state of death from which there was no way out, until Christ died to release us from the death state.

Not at each individuals death but in the order assigned by God to take place in three resurrections. Verse 23 Read the entire 15th chapter of 1 Corinthians and rightly divide that which differs as Paul explains what Christ bought for us and the order in which it will occur and what kind of bodies the dead will rise with.

A fun passage to also check out in many other Bible translations is Titus 2:11 “For the saving grace of God made its advent to all humanity, training us that, disowning irreverence and worldly desires, we should be living sanely and justly and devoutly in the current eon, anticipating that happy expectation, even the advent of the glory of the great God and our Savior, Jesus Christ.” CVLV Let’s compare this passage with some other translations.

The King James “The grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men.” This is not accurately translated as it puts the force on appears instead of salvation to or for all men. God’s grace has come and not just appeared for all mankind, but not all have seen it yet.

The Revised KJ has it as, “The grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men.” Rotherham’s, says “For the favor of God, bringing salvation for all men, has shone forth.”

Moffat says, “For the grace of God has appeared to save all men.” Darby has, “For the grace of God that carries with it salvation for all men, has appeared.”

Weymouth, has “Now has dawned the day of the grace of God, the grace that brings salvation to all mankind”

Most of these translators did not believe in the Salvation of All and yet they translated this passage so as to declare it! They did not follow the error of the KJAV which implies, this grace had only appeared unto all men, and this was most likely slanted because of the free will doctrine taught then and now and so tainted by the belief that Gods grace will not save you unless you let it. By now we all should realize that is not what Paul taught and in fact the entire Word of God shows forth that His will and intention is to save all His creation.

The text in Titus agrees with so many others of Paul’s words which taught that God’s total Grace is for the Body of Christ in this dispensation and that it will be extended to all creation in the future ages, and so Grace indeed had not just appeared but had come into the world through Christ’s shed blood for the purpose of bringing salvation to all.

John 4:42 tells us “Christ is the Savior of the world” John did not say of only, some in the world. If Christ is the savior of the world He then must save that world for if He only saves some, and not all, He has failed as Savior of the world. He would have given His life in vain and this is not the case. Christ’s blood paid for all humanity, this means He owns all mankind and as in His illustration of going after the one lost sheep Christ will not be satisfied until He has saved all those which He has bought and paid for, they are His and not Satan’s!
