BEWARE, COULD OUR CHURCHES BE USHERING IN THE “ONE WORLD CHURCH”?
The “New International Version” (NIV), “New World Translation” (NWT) and other modern Westcott sourced Bibles destroy God’s fruitfulness in the world as “The Great Commission” of Matthew 28:18-20 is now taught just to be the passion of some people while others just sing, eat and play yet the Devil runs rampant in the world and some churches.
NIV and NWT, with others deny that Jesus is equal with God.

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. …. For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ. …. For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. …. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” (Matthew 7:15, 2 Corinthians 2:17, Revelation 22:18-19, Revelation 18:4 – KJV/AV– Comparisons made with KJV, AV, Holy Bible including printed years of 1611-1985)

Brooke Foss Wescott (1825-1901), the co-founder of the primary new testament NIV translation source, referred to as Westcott and Hort’s New Testament in the Original Greek, by his own words, Westcott did not believe in a literal interpretation of Genesis concerning the creation of the world; Westcott wrote a letter supporting Darwinism; Westcott didn't believe in the reality or the necessity of the bodily resurrection of Jesus; Westcott believed the Second Coming of Christ as merely Christ coming to us through His Spirit from hour to hour; Westcott said he believed "eternal life" is the life right now and he made strange statements concerning incarnation, such as, “Incarnation lies not in the recognition of a distinct divine person”.
Brooke Westcott and his student, Fenton John Anthony Hort (1828-1892), through a modern process of textural criticism divided all Bible Manuscripts into four families. They called the “Smallest” and “Rarest” (only about 5% of the over 5000 known manuscripts), the “Neutral Family” which they used as a basis for a new Greek Text effectively removing verses from the Bible and making thousands of changes from the “Original Tongues”, the 90-95% Majority Text of the KJV and earlier Bibles.
Concerning Genesis and Creationism: “No one now, I suppose, holds that the first three chapters of Genesis, for example, give a literal history - I could never understand how any one reading them with open eyes could think they did - yet they disclose to us a Gospel.” (Westcott’s New Bibles, James H. Sightler, M.D.; Page 14; Westcott, A., op.cit.,Vol. II,p.89)
Concerning the bodily resurrection of Jesus: “It may indeed be said that the Church was founded upon the belief in the Resurrection and not upon the Resurrection itself; and that the testimony must therefore be limited to the attestation of the belief, and cannot reach to the attestation of the fact.” (Westcott’s 1867 pamphlet, The Resurrection as a Fact and as a Revelation, page 13)
“The Revelation (of the Resurrection) was a Revelation to believers…That which is of the earth can perceive only that which is of the earth. Our senses can only grasp that which is kindred to themselves…the world could not see Christ, and Christ could not-there is a Divine impossiblility-shew Himself to the world. To have proved by incontestable evidence that Christ rose again as Lazarus rose again, would have been not to confirm our faith but to destroy it irretrievably”
“The Resurrection, to set the matter in another light, was not an isolated event. It was and is an abiding fact. It was the beginning of a new and living relation between the Lord and His People.” (The Gospel of Life, New York; Macmillan & Co., 1892, p.35, Heresies of Westcott and Hort 1979, pp 32-33)
Concerning Darwinism: “A celebrated author and divine has written to me that ‘he has gradually learnt to see that it is just as noble a conception of the Deity to believe that He created a few original forms capable of self development into other needful forms, as to believe that He required a fresh act of creation to supply the voids caused by the actions of his laws.” (Second edition of Darwin’s Origin, January 1860 quoting from Wescott’s letter)
Concerning the Second Coming of Christ: “In my Father’s house-the spiritual and eternal antitype of the visible temple-are many mansions-many resting places…The assurance stands in the grand simplicity, and we must not attempt to define further what at present we have no faculties to understand. Heaven is where God is known as our Father…The ‘mansions’ are not, as it seems, simply fixed abodes in some spiritual city, but rather stations along the highways of some vast realm. Even in the father’s presence life is still portrayed under the image of a journey, such that the idea of repose is combined with that of progress…If I go and prepare a place for you, I come again…The ‘coming’ is the strength of life, the ‘receiving’ is the crown of life. Christ comes to us through His Spirit from hour to hour in the blessing and sanctifying of every circumstance and change.” (Westcott’s commentary on John 14:1-3)
