b. Eph 3:9 (KJV) - 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:
(i) (NKJV) - and to make all see what is the [a]fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things [b]through Jesus Christ; b. NU omits through Jesus Christ
(ii) (NIV) - and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things.
(iii) (ESV) - and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God, who created all things,
(iv) (NASB) - and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things;
(v) (NLT) - I was chosen to explain to everyone[a] this mysterious plan that God, the Creator of all things, had kept secret from the beginning.
(vi) (MSG) - My task is to bring out in the open and make plain what God, who created all this in the first place, has been doing in secret and behind the scenes all along.

c. Php 2:6 (KJV) - Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

(iv) (NASB) - We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
(v) (NLT) - We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.
(vi) (MSG) - This is how we’ve come to understand and experience love: Christ sacrificed his life for us. This is why we ought to live sacrificially for our fellow believers, and not just be out for ourselves.

e. Rev 1:11 (KJV) - Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

(v) (NLT) - Then the mother of James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Jesus with her sons. She knelt respectfully to ask a favor.
(vi) (MSG) - It was about that time that the mother of the Zebedee brothers came with her two sons and knelt before Jesus with a request.

g. Rom 14:10-12 (KJV) - 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. 11) For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12) So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
(i) (NKJV) - But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of [a]Christ. 11) For it is written: “As I live, says the Lord, Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall confess to God.” 12) So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. a. NU God
(ii) (NIV) - You, then, why do you judge your brother or sister? Or why do you treat them with contempt? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat. 11) It is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.’” 12) So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.
(iii) (ESV) - Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God; 11) for it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12) So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.
(iv) (NASB) - But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you regard your brother with contempt? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. 11) For it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall give praise to God.” 12) So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God.
(v) (NLT) - So why do you condemn another believer? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. 11) For the Scriptures say, “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will declare allegiance to God.’” 12) Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God.
(vi) (MSG) - So where does that leave you when you criticize a brother? And where does that leave you when you condescend to a sister? I’d say it leaves you looking pretty silly—or worse. Eventually, we’re all going to end up kneeling side by side in the place of judgment, facing God. Your critical and condescending ways aren’t going to improve your position there one bit. Read it for yourself in Scripture: “As I live and breathe,” God says, “every knee will bow before me; Every tongue will tell the honest truth that I and only I am God.” So tend to your knitting. You’ve got your hands full just taking care of your own life before God.

v. Satan's bibles attack the sonship of Jesus Christ.

a. The NASB, one of Satan's most popular bibles, teaches that Jesus is a begotten God (which is no God at all). His other bibles change the description of Jesus as the only begotten Son of God.
(i) Joh 1:18 (KJV) - No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
1. (NKJV) - No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten [a]Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him. a. NU God
2. (NIV) - No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
3. (ESV) - No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father's side, he has made him known.
4. (NASB) - No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.
5. (NLT) - No one has ever seen God. But the unique One, who is himself God, is near to the Father’s heart. He has revealed God to us.
6. (MSG) - No one has ever seen God, not so much as a glimpse. This one-of-a-kind God-Expression, who exists at the very heart of the Father, has made him plain as day.

b. Many of Satan's bibles remove references to Jesus being the Son of God.

(i) Act 3:26 (KJV) - Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.
1. (NKJV) - To you first, God, having raised up His Servant Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities.”
2. (NIV) - When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.”

5. (NLT) - When God raised up his servant, Jesus, he sent him first to you people of Israel, to bless you by turning each of you back from your sinful ways.”
6. (MSG) - But you are first in line: God, having raised up his Son, sent him to bless you as you turn, one by one, from your evil ways.”

(ii) Act 4:27 (KJV) - For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,
1. (NKJV) - “For truly against Your holy Servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel, were gathered together
2. (NIV) - Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed.
3. (ESV) - for truly in this city there were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel,
4. (NASB) - For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the [b]Gentiles and the peoples of Israel,
5. (NLT) - “In fact, this has happened here in this very city! For Herod Antipas, Pontius Pilate the governor, the Gentiles, and the people of Israel were all united against Jesus, your holy servant, whom you anointed.
6. (MSG) - “For in fact they did meet—Herod and Pontius Pilate with nations and peoples, even Israel itself!—met in this very city to plot against your holy Son Jesus, the One you made Messiah, to carry out the plans you long ago set in motion.
7. It's a sad day for the NIV, ESV, NASB, and NLT when The Message is more accurate than they are in these verses.

(iii) Act 4:30 (KJV) - By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.
1. (NKJV) - by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.”
2. (NIV) - Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
3. (ESV) - while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
4. (NASB) - while You extend Your hand to heal, and signs and wonders take place through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.”
5. (NLT) - Stretch out your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
6. (MSG) - as you stretch out your hand to us in healings and miracles and wonders done in the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
(iv) A son is far superior to a servant (Joh 8:35).

vi. Satan's bibles attack the resurrection of Christ.

a. Act 1:3 (KJV) - To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:
(i) (NKJV) - to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many [a]infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God. a. unmistakable

(vi) (MSG) - After his death, he presented himself alive to them in many different settings over a period of forty days. In face-to-face meetings, he talked to them about things concerning the kingdom of God.
b. Infallible adj.- Of things: Not liable to fail, unfailing. a. Not liable to prove false, erroneous, or mistaken; that unfailingly holds good. (OED)
c. ii. Convincing adj.- 1. That convinces; †a. that convicts, proves guilty, etc. (OED) 1. Persuading or assuring by argument or evidence (dictionary.com - since this is not a KJV word and the latest usage in the OED for it is 1885)
d. There is a big difference between infallible proofs and convincing proofs.

vii. Satan's bibles make Jesus Christ a sinner.

a. Mat 5:22 (KJV) - But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
(i) (NKJV) - But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother [a]without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’[b] shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, [c]‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of [d]hell fire. a. NU omits without a cause
(ii) (NIV) - But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.
(iii) (ESV) - But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.
(iv) (NASB) - But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, ‘You good-for-nothing,’ shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says, ‘You fool,’ shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell.
(v) (NLT) - But I say, if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell.
(vi) (MSG) - I’m telling you that anyone who is so much as angry with a brother or sister is guilty of murder. Carelessly call a brother ‘idiot!’ and you just might find yourself hauled into court. Thoughtlessly yell ‘stupid!’ at a sister and you are on the brink of hellfire. The simple moral fact is that words kill.
b. We can be angry without sinning (Eph 4:26).
c. Jesus was angry with people with a cause (Mat 21:12; Joh 2:15; Mar 3:5).
d. Satan's bibles make Jesus a sinner.

viii. Satan's bibles take away Christ's sovereignty in salvation.

a. Heb 1:3 (KJV) - 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;
(i) (NKJV) - 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 [a]by Himself [b]purged [c]our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, a. NU omits by Himself c. NU omits our

(vi) (MSG) - ... After he finished the sacrifice for sins, the Son took his honored place high in the heavens right alongside God, far higher than any angel in rank and rule.

b. 1Co 1:18 (KJV) - For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
(i) (NKJV) - For the [a]message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
(ii) (NIV) - For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

(v) (NLT) - The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God.
(vi) (MSG) - The Message that points to Christ on the Cross seems like sheer silliness to those hellbent on destruction, but for those on the way of salvation it makes perfect sense.

c. 2Co 2:15 (KJV) - For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:
(i) (NKJV) - For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.

(iv) (NASB) - For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing;
(v) (NLT) - Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. But this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing.
(vi) (MSG) - Through us, he brings knowledge of Christ. Everywhere we go, people breathe in the exquisite fragrance. Because of Christ, we give off a sweet scent rising to God, which is recognized by those on the way of salvation—an aroma redolent with life. But those on the way to destruction treat us more like the stench from a rotting corpse.

d. Gal 2:16 (KJV) - Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
(i) (NKJV) - knowing that a man is not [a]justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.

(iii) (ESV) - yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified.
(iv) (NASB) - nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of [b]the Law; since by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified.
(v) (NLT) - Yet we know that a person is made right with God by faith in Jesus Christ, not by obeying the law. And we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we might be made right with God because of our faith in Christ, not because we have obeyed the law. For no one will ever be made right with God by obeying the law.”
(vi) (MSG) - We know very well that we are not set right with God by rule-keeping but only through personal faith in Jesus Christ. How do we know? We tried it—and we had the best system of rules the world has ever seen! Convinced that no human being can please God by self-improvement, we believed in Jesus as the Messiah so that we might be set right before God by trusting in the Messiah, not by trying to be good.

e. Gal 2:20 (KJV) - I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

(iv) (NASB) - I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
(v) (NLT) - My old self has been crucified with Christ.[a] It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
(vi) (MSG) - Indeed, I have been crucified with Christ. My ego is no longer central. It is no longer important that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion, and I am no longer driven to impress God. Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not “mine,” but it is lived by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
