Shame On “Gideons International” For Promoting Corrupt Bibles And A Perverse Gospel

2nd Corinthians 2:17, “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.

Galatians 1:6-7, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.”

In our two text passages of Scripture we read that there are those who corrupt both the Word of God and the Gospel. There is nothing knew under the sun. Just as many people corrupted the Word of God in New Testament times, so do they also today in 2023. So also today do ungodly people pervert the Gospel of free grace.

This is the third year that I attended the Pensacola Interstate Fair. I always enjoy going to the fair. Everyone who attends the fair is required to enter through the Exhibit Building. This is where all the religious booths are located, including the Jehovah's Witness and Pensacola Christian College cults. In the same building the Gideons International organization of religious businessmen have a booth and table set up. As I walked by one of the Gideon men offered me a small orange New Testament (that includes Psalms and Proverbs), which I gladly received and thanked him.

When I got home from the fair the other night, I looked inside the pocket New Testament to see what version he gave me. It was an English Standard Version (ESV). I was instantly disgusted, because the ESV is corrupted horribly by Satan. For example, take a look at how the ESV corrupts Psalms 12:6-7...
King James Bible (KJB)
Psalms 12:6-7, "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever."

English Standard Version (ESV)
Psalms 12:6-7, “The words of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in a furnace on the ground purified seven times. You, O Lord, will keep them; you will guard us from this generation forever.”
It is plain to see in the King James Bible that the pronoun “them” in Psalms 12:7 refers to the “pure words” mentioned in Psalms 12:6. But the ESV corrupts the inspired Word of God, by changing “them” to “us” (which switches God's promise to preserve His pure Words to instead guide the saints). Do you see how subtle the Devil and his servants are?

I could show you hundreds of similar passages in the Devil's modern Bible revisions, which have been subtly corrupted to convey a different meaning that what God originally intended. Why did the Devil and his children do this? It is to satisfy the wicked agendas of our generation, and to appease unbelieving infidels who deny Jesus' deity, deny the Godhead, and deny the truth that we have an inspired Holy Bible today today in the King James Bible. Don't ever forget that the Devil is a liar of liars, and a deceiver of deceivers! Satan deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden, he tried to deceive Jesus when tempting Him in Matthew 4:1-10, and if you are weak in the faith Satan will deceive you too.

Gideons International are pulling on the same rope as the Devil, by publishing and distributing English Standard Version (ESV) perversions of God's Word.

Gideons Promote Corrupt ESV Bible That Attacks Jesus' Deity

The ESV and all modern Devil's Bible revisions ruthlessly attack 1st Timothy 3:16. First, please see what the trustworthy inspired King James Bible reads...
1st Timothy 3:16, “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.”
Now take a look at how wicked sinners corrupt 1st Timothy 3:16b in the English Standard Version (ESV) that Bob Jones University sanctions, uses and sells; and kindly take a look at the Easy-To-Read Version (ERV) that Harvest Baptist Church on Guam sanctions, uses and sells; and take a look at several other modern PERversions...

KJB - “God was manifest in the flesh”

ESV - “He was manifested in the flesh”

ERV - “Christ was shown to us in human form”

NRSV - “He was revealed in flesh”

NIV - “He appeared in the flesh”

RSV - “He was manifested in the flesh”

TLB - “Christ, who came to earth as a man”

NCV - “He was shown to us in a human body”

NLT - “Christ was revealed in a human body”

TLV - “He was revealed in the flesh”

HCSB - “He was manifested in the flesh”

CEB - “he was revealed as a human”

MSG - “He appeared in a human body”

VOICE - “He was revealed in the flesh”

Where is God?

Where is God?

I said where is God? They removed Him!

Kindly, with powdered sugar on top—SHAME ON BOB JONES UNIVERSITY! And kindly, with candy sprinkles—SHAME ON HARVEST BAPTIST CHURCH ON GUAM!!! Shame on all of them for promoting this ungodly corrupt filth!!! SHAME ON PENSACOLA CHRISTIAN COLLEGE for wickedly bidding Godspeed to Harvest and BJU. The Devil's Bible versions have REMOVED GOD FROM 1ST TIMOTHY 3:16!!! Where's Waldo? Oh, sorry! Where's God? I could have quoted the same corrupt rendering of 1st Timothy 3:16 from several dozen more PERversions of God's Word, which all remove “GOD.” The King James Bible (in no uncertain terms) proclaims THE TRUTH that GOD was manifest (revealed) in the flesh (the incarnate body of the Son of God, Jesus Christ). ...
John 1:1-3 and 14, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. ...And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
Look again for yourself, how Satan's Bible revisions (all from Westcott and Hort's corrupt 1881: The New Testament In The Original Greek), change 1st Timothy 3:16 to eliminate the deity of Jesus Christ! It is wickedness!!!

Did you know that the Jehovah's Witness “New World Translation” (NWT) was also translated from Westcott and Hort's Greek translation? That means if you are using the ESV or the ERV, you are using the same corrupt Bible translation as the Jehovah's Witnesses! Do you know why JW's choose the Alexandrian text? It is because they deny Jesus' deity and the Godhead, so they are naturally going to choose a corrupt Bible text that assaults and removes these doctrines.

Am I such a bad person for refuting this heresy, so despised that Harvest Baptist Church on Guam has banned me from returning to their church family since 2014? I very much love them all, but they don't love THE TRUTH!!! Galatians 4:16-17, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them.” The cult at BJU and Harvest Baptist Church on Guam zealously affect the PCC camp, to their damnation!!!

Instead of rightly obeying God's command in Titus 1:13 to “rebuke them sharply,” PCC is in bed spiritually fornicating with the ungodly corrupt Bob Jones University cult. BJU is so far gone that in December of 2022, they invited hellbound Calvinist Paul Washer to preach in BJU chapel. Sadly, another apostate, Pastor Clarence Sexton from Temple Baptist Church in Powell, Tennessee, also attended and preached at this event at BJU, wickedly bidding Godspeed to BJU. SHAME!!! Shame on Clarence Sexton! RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!!

Gideons Are Preaching A Perversion Of The Gospel

Moving on, I have the little orange pocket New Testament in front of me, which was handed to me at the Pensacola Interstate Fair this year. On the back page, which is numbered as page 187, it displays the Gideon's plan of salvation. This is the suggested prayer they offer:
“God, from my heart, I admit to You that I am a sinner and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe that Your Son, Jesus, took the punishment I deserve by shedding His blood on the cross. He gave His life as the full payment for my sins and rose again from the dead. Thank you for changing my heart. I now confess and turn from my sins and receive Your Son, Jesus, as my Saviour and Lord. Amen.”

What you just read dear reader is a perversion of the Gospel. If you do what the Gideons are requiring you to do to get to Heaven, you will assuredly spend eternity burning in the fires and torments of Hell. The preceding plan of salvation cannot produce the new birth by the Holy Spirit of God. The changes may seem trifle and insignificant to you, but to TURN FROM YOUR SINS is works, not grace. What saith the Scripture? Jonah 3:10, “And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.” Romans 3:20, “  ”Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.”
“Christianity is not the sacrifice we make, but the sacrifice we trust. LIVING YOUR life for Jesus won't save you, but BELIEVING Jesus gave HIS LIFE for you will.” —Pastor Thomas Cucuzza, “Important Things Satan Does Not Want You To Know
Nowhere in the Bible are we taught that our heart must change to be saved, or that our heart will change when we get saved. The disturbing implication made by the Gideons is that your heart must change to get to Heaven. When the unsaved Philippian jailer in Rome asked Paul and Silas in Acts 16:30b, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?,” their simply answer in verse 31 was to, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.” Paul and Silas didn't tell the man to change his heart, nor did they tell him to turn from his sins to be saved. They simply told him to BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!!! Why do men always complicate God's simple plan of salvation?

Nowhere in the inspired King James Bible are we taught to “repent of your sin” or “turn from your sin” to get to Heaven. To do so is WORKS! Matthew 27:3 says that Judas “repented himself” of his sins, compelling him to do penance by returning the 30 pieces of silver. Judas had a changed heart. Judas was sorry (which is penitence) for betraying an innocent man, Jesus. Judas was reformed, having turned from his sins, and yet Jesus said it would have been better for Judas if he had never been born, because Judas went to Hell forever to burn.

Dear reader, if you want to be saved and go to Heaven someday, then YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN Jesus said (John 3:1-7). You can only be born-again by ceasing from all your own self-righteous works (like trying to turn from your sinful way), and instead REST completely in what Jesus did to pay for your sins through His sacrifice on Calvary's cross. Salvation is not a reward for the righteous, it is a gift for the guilty! Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.

Turning away from sinful ways would be a work. Faith puts all of the merit where it belongs, on the object of our faith, Jesus and His work. If to “repent” means to forsake our sinful ways TO BE SAVED, but Jesus already paid for our sins by dying on the cross, then what are we repenting from? The true Gospel always points you to CHRIST; a false gospel always points to YOU. It's not what you are doing that gets you to Heaven; but rather, it is where you are looking. LOOK TO JESUS!!! Isaiah 45:22, “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.”

(Pastor Curtis Hutson, 1934-1995)
