Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD,
that I will send a famine in the land,
not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,
but of hearing the words of the LORD:

Amos 8:11

In 1995, the NIV team (International Bible Society (IBS) and Committee on Bible Translations (CBT)) created a feminist "gender-inclusive" NIV, titled the New International Version Inclusive language edition [NIVI]. They found out very quickly and very loudly that America was not "prime-time ready" for a NIV feminist "gender inclusive" edition. So the NIVI was published solely in Great Britain by Hodder & Stoughton (Zondervan is the exclusive NIV publisher in the U.S.). The NIVI is so drenched in feminist changes and so corrupt, it cannot legally be sold in America. The NIVI is a "bound and gagged book" in America. See 2 Timothy 2:9, ( ‘. . .but the word of God is not bound"). According to Christianity Today, NIV copyright holder, International Bible Society (IBS) even requested that Hodder & Stoughton quit selling the embarrassing NIVI in liberal England.

And they were filled with madness;
and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.

Luke 6:11


The cornerstone of the Christian faith is the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. Not His teachings, not His morals, not His miracles, not His example – but HIM.

John 14:6 says:

Jesus saith unto him, I AM the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but BY ME.

If there's one doctrine that Christians should guard and protect it surely is the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. The FACT that Jesus Christ was God manifest in the flesh is the foundation of the Christian faith.

For years the new Bible versions have been continually chipping away at the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Timothy 3:16 is the clearest verse in the Bible proclaiming Jesus Christ as "God manifest in the flesh". In 1 Timothy 3:16, the King James Bible is unmistakable – "God was manifest in the flesh".

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
1 Timothy 3:16, KJB

In 1 Timothy 3:16, virtually every new version replaces the clear, emphatic "God" with the generic "he".

. . . What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ?. . .
Matthew 27:22


Another deliberate and confusing mistranslation is the Greek word "Christos". The Greek word "Christos" is always translated (or actually transliterated) as "Christ". In fact, the Lord Jesus Christ is referred to as "Christ" by preachers, teachers, Christians and people worldwide more than either Lord or Jesus. People who follow the Lord Jesus Christ are call Christians. It is the "de facto" standard when referencing the Lord Jesus Christ and His followers.

". . . And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. . ." Acts 11:26

69 times the translators of the TNIV intentionally, mis-translate "christos" as "messiah".

It’s interesting that the ultra-liberal, ecumenical, Roman Catholic [which includes the Apocrypha] supported, National Council of the Churches copyrighted, feminist-approved, gender-inclusive, New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) also mis-translates "christ" as "messiah" 66 times. "Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" Amos 3:3

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Zondervan also publishes the feminist-gender-inclusive, New Revised Standard Version (NRSV).

And I sought for a man among them,
. . . but I found none
Ezekiel 22:30


Since the 60's the radical feminists have been screaming and whining that sexist, male chauvinist word 'man' has just got to go. Today, we no longer have a postman, but a letter carrier; the policeman is now a police officer; the businessman is a businessperson; a fireman is a firefighter; our garbage man is a garbage collector, chairman is a chairperson, on and on. We've just got to divorce that mean ol' sexist 'man'. He has got to go. It's gotten so bad, some have suggested renaming the city of Manchester into Personchester.

For over 500 years, the words 'man’ and ‘mankind’ were terms that neatly referenced the whole family – mom, dad, son, daughter, boy, girl, baby – it was simple. And it was effective. But today, thanks to the whining militant feminists, 'man' is quickly becoming an endangered species.

And the TNIV-NIV-NIVI translators are certainly helping the cause. . .

The TNIV web site describes their "man-removal" operation:

"Where the NIV previously used 'he,' 'man,' or 'men' to indicate all people, the TNIV, in many cases, renders these passages as 'person,' 'people' or other terminology that reflects the meaning of the original language."
(TNIV: Clarity in Contemporary English,

. . . The LORD hath called me from the womb;
from the bowels of my mother
hath he made mention of my name.

Isaiah 49:1


For the last 25 years the baby-killing, pro-abortion, feminists, have spewed forth their crusade of propaganda and lies. Since Roe v. Wade (1973) over 40 million innocent, babies have been murdered. It's interesting 1973, happens to be the date the "original" New International Version New Testament [NIV] was published. . . hmm . . . (by their fruits ye shall know them. Matt 7:20)

40 million babies. . . That's more than 25 times the number of every soldier killed in all the wars in America's history.

40 million babies. . . That's more babies than the COMBINED population of Wyoming, Vermont, Alaska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Delaware, Montana, Rhode Island, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Maine, Idaho, Nebraska, West Virginia, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Arkansas, Kansas, Mississippi, Iowa, Connecticut, and Oregon!

That's more innocent little babies murdered than the COMBINED total of 23 states!

Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind:
it is abomination.

Leviticus 18:22


In 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, the word of God delivers a very serious warning against certain sins. Among these sins is sodomy, or homosexuality. The TNIV obscures the seriousness of the judgement on "homosexuals" by confusing the sin of "homosexuals" by adding the word "practicing". It’s no longer "homosexuals" but "practicing homosexuals".

1 Corinthians 6:8-10, TNIV
8 Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers and sisters.
9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor practicing homosexuals
10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

Practicing homosexuals?

Where did the TNIV translators ever come up with such a biased, unwarranted, pro-homosexual wording? Why didn’t they say "practicing" adulterers, "practicing" thieves, or "practicing" drunkards, or "practicing" slanders? Hmm. . . Why just "practicing homosexuals"?

The TNIV translators pull the same trick in 1 Timothy 1:10

1 Timothy 1:9-10, TNIV
9 We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious; for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers,
10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers. And it is for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine

Why not "practicing" murders, or "practicing" liars, or "practicing" slave traders?

Remove not the ancient landmark,
which thy fathers have set
Proverbs 22:28


One of the major problems facing America today is fatherless families. Today, fathers are an endangered species. It’s gotten so bad, President Bush and Congress have proposed "buy back the fathers" programs offering cash incentives just to encourage fathers to marry.

The father’s role in a family can not be overemphasized.

Look at the following alarming statistics:

  • 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes. [U. S. D.H.H.S. Bureau of the Census]
  • 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes.
  • 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes. [Center for Disease Control]
  • 80% of rapist motivated with displaced anger come from fatherless homes. [Criminal Justice and Behavior, Vol. 14 p. 403-26]
  • 72% percent of adolescent murders come from fatherless homes. [William J. Bennett, The Index of Leading Cultural Indicators, p. 61]
  • 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes. [National Principals Association Report on the State of High Schools]
  • 70% of juveniles in state operated institutions come from fatherless homes [U.S. Dept. of Justice, Special Report, Sept., 1988]
  • 70 percent of long-term prison inmates come from fatherless homes. [William J. Bennett, The Index of Leading Cultural Indicators, p. 61]
  • 85% of all youths sitting in prisons grew up in a fatherless home. [Fulton County Georgia Jail Populations and Texas Dept. of Corrections, 1992]
  • Nearly 2 of every 5 children in America do not live with their fathers. [US News and World Report, February 27, 1995, p.39]


  • 4.6 times more likely to commit suicide
  • 6.6 times to become teenaged mothers (if they are girls, of course)
  • 24.3 times more likely to run away
  • 15.3 times more likely to have behavioral disorders
  • 6.3 times more likely to be in a state-operated institutions
  • 10.8 times more likely to commit rape
  • 6.6 times more likely to drop out of school
  • 15.3 times more likely to end up in prison while a teenager

A Heritage Foundation study found that growing up without a father is now the single most reliable predictor of crime.

. . .thou hast multiplied thine abominations more than they,
and hast justified thy sisters
in all thine abominations which thou hast done.
Ezekiel 16:51


The NIV (and nearly all the other versions) replaced the gender-inclusive "brethren" with the male-only "brothers". The gender-inclusive, TNIV just couldn’t allow that male-only "brothers". That wouldn’t please N.O.W. [National Organization for Women] or Virginia Mollenkott.

What could they do? The NIV and sisters, replaced the gender-inclusive "brethren" with the male-chauvinist "brothers" – so how could they get out of this pickle?

Simple. . . The TNIV mis-translators reached back into that "magic no Greek text translation hat" and pulled out another rabbit – a female rabbit named "sisters".

So with over 110 "magic translation" tricks, the TNIV reads "brothers and sisters" – where there ain’t no "sister’. And there ain’t no Greek manuscript in the universe to justify the addition of the word "sisters".

Some "magic" examples:

Notice, the first three verses are MIS quotes of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 25:40, KJB
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 25:40, TNIV
"The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

. . . Have ye not read,
that he which made them at the beginning
made them male and female,

Matthew 19:4


By far the most extensive damage performed by the inclusive-perversions is the extermination of the "generic" masculine pronouns, such as "he / him / his".

Known as the "generic he", generic masculine pronouns are the standard method used in the English language when addressing an "indefinite" or "undefined" individual. Masculine pronouns, such as "he / him / his" are utilized to address both male and female when the gender is unknown. The "generic he" has been the accepted method literally, since the beginning of the English language.

The Preface to the TNIV states:

"While a basic core of the English language remains relatively stable, many diverse and complex cultural forces [as in the feminists ‘cultural force’?] continue to bring about the subtle [see Gen 3:1] shifts in the meanings and/or connotations of even old, well-established words and phrases. Among the more programmatic changes in the TNIV is the removal of nearly all vocative ‘O’’s and the elimination of most instances of the generic use of masculine nouns and pronouns."
(TNIV, Preface, p. vii, emphasis and bracketed comments added)

Boy. . . the NIV translators weren’t just kidding when they declared ". . .the elimination of most instances of the generic use of masculine nouns and pronouns." With the exception of referring to specific male individuals, virtually every masculine pronoun is removed from the TNIV!

  • The TNIV zaps ‘he’ over 1090 times – over 35% of ‘he’ is deleted.
  • The TNIV zaps ‘him’ over 1600 times – a whopping 66% of ‘him’ is deleted.
  • The TNIV zaps ‘his’ over 290 times – over 20% of ‘his’ is deleted.

For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God. . .
2 Corinthians 2:17



Don’t look for any "sons of God" in the TNIV – sorry, they’ve all been "neutered".

The Lord no longer has any sons – they're all just "neutered" children.



The TNIV translators and publishers claim their motive for the TNIV is to provide a translation in "today’s most contemporary, accepted English" and in language to reach today’s generation. It’s funny, that every new Bible that comes out says that?

How about Romans 12:1 and "today’s most contemporary, accepted English"?

Here's the supposedly archaic, hard to understand King James.

Romans 12:1, KJB
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

And here’s the latest-greatest, easier to understand, in today’s language, blah. . . blah. . . blah TNIV:

Romans 12:1, TNIV
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your proper worship as rational beings.
