Believe What?

KJV Only advocates often use a double standard in their incrimination of the modern versions. Consider this passage found in John 6:47:

 

  • • KJV – Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
  • • NIV – I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.
  • • NASB – “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes has eternal life.

 

Because of this verse, serious charges of “tampering with the Gospel have been levied against the modern versions. D.A. Waite, in a somewhat hysterical fashion, declares:

 

“This is, perhaps, one of the CLEAREST theological errors in these three versions. To make salvation only a matter of “believing” rather than solely, as Christ said in this verse, “believing on me,” is truly ANOTHER GOSPEL. If you are trying to lead someone to Christ with the NIV or NASV, using this verse, they could “believe” in anything and still have “everlasting life” – whether in Santa Claus, in the Easter Bunny, in the Tooth Fairy, in Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer or in any of the false world religions. This is SERIOUS THEOLOGICAL PERVERSION!”

 

The question is asked, “Does the rendering of John 6:47 allow for belief in Santa Claus for eternal salvation?” This rant is ridiculous when you read just 12 verses earlier, where the modern version records Jesus saying “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me shall not hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” In verse 40, Jesus says, “For this is the will of the Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him, may have eternal life.” This same phraseology is found in John 7:38, 11:25-26, 12:44 and 12:46.

 

Here, in the exact same immediate context, Jesus is defined as the direct object of the faith about which He is speaking. Again, if this is a conspiracy among modern translators to mislead people away from Christ, they do a horribly inconsistent job. And seriously, could ANYONE read John 6:35-47 and NOT know what the object of faith in verse 47 is to be?

 

However, this does open a “can of worms” for the consistent KJVO advocate. What if the KJV fails to always include a direct object with “believe?” Consider the following from the KJV:

 

  • • Mark 9:23, where we read “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible

to him that believeth.” Believeth what???

 

  • • Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto

salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first and also to the Greek. Believeth

what???

 

  • • Romans 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

Believeth what???

Can we condemn the KJV as presenting “another gospel” here in these verses? Of course not, yet KJV Onlyists are quick to pin that label on modern versions. I am stunned by the complete lack of ethical scholarship in this argumentation.

 

Quite simply, it is hard to imagine that someone could see a malevolent force behind the John 6:47 verse and then ignore the same situation in these verses!

Something to Think About:

Have you blindly accepted KJV Onlyism?

 

***This will be an ongoing series that will take a deeper look into the KJV Only movement.  This is not meant to create controversy but hopefully it will serve as a resource for those who are wanting to take a more detailed look into this subject to see if the claims made by KJV Onlyist are necessarily true and valid, that all other versions are “perversions”.  This series will be taken from a variety of resources.  This is by no means an attempt to discredit the KJV Bible as we believe it is a good translation.  However, as previously noted, this series is an attempt to answer a few of the claims made by the KJV Only advocates.  We are not claiming this to be an exhaustive resource on this topic, but we will provide resources to those interested in further study and research on this topic.***
