Erica Campbell Shame On You For Misleading Your Followers!?!?


Readers, in my opinion, 1st lady Erica Campbell has her followers sharing false information (21,090 shares). There's nothing wrong with the NIV bible.  It is a perfectly fine translation. The verses in question according to research were omitted because they cannot be found in earlier manuscripts. There's no conspiracy. Most NIV Bibles have footnotes where the verses have been omitted which explains this. Some have tried to explain this on the Facebook post but, of course, it have gotten drowned out by the celebrity light.



In my opinion, the King James Version of the bible is the most inaccurate version. According to google, the KJV was translated with the Textus Receptus. Those were the only manuscripts they had access to. The translators of the NIV and other versions had access to much earlier manuscripts which didn't include the verses in question. The question shouldn't be why did the NIV omit the Scriptures? The question should be why did the manuscripts which were used to translate the KJV included them?



Don't turn people away from other Bible versions. They are perfectly fine although some are better than others. I use the NASB. In my opinion,  the NIV, NLT and the amplified are the best versions to R E A D from But NOT to STUDY FROM. Christians need to know what they are reading. Those scriptures listed above were NOT mentioned in the ORIGINAL TEXTS.

  1. Ms. Ann thank you, First Lady Erica should be ashame of herself. This is not any sort of attempt to edit the Bible. If she and her followers would do even a little investigation into Bible translation they will learn the reasons. There is not one original Bible that fell from heaven. It is made of books written by various authors including Moses, Isaiah, David, Jeremiah, Matthew, Paul, Peter, John, and others. These books were compiled and recognized by Jewish and/or Christian leaders as the Canon of scripture. Not one of the original manuscripts exists. Translators have to rely on copies that were preserved years later. Many of the earliest manuscripts do not include these verses but are thought to be later additions by transcribers who added what was not there in the original. Each of these verses is an example of a possible later addition. Likewise the English words used to translate the original Hebrew or greek texts can never completely be an exact translation. None of this is to dilute scripture but to make it clearer and more reliable to the original writings inspired by the Holy Spirit.

    1. Anonymous I agree and do believe she's spreading information not based on facts. A better understanding of the oldest manuscripts that all translations use to translate the bible has revealed that those verses should not have been included in the first place. Most were misapplied to the wrong author. You should vet things before you post. So, disappointed in her for this.

    2. Ms. Ann what the Hell?? They don't care over there on (FACEBOOK). Whatever Erica Campbell tell them, them fools are falling for it. Just because she's a celebrity. That's how Jim Jones got all those fools to follow behind him and to drink that poison. Crazy!

    3. Erica Campbell needs her butt kick for this. Christians need to recognize the differences between Bible Reading Apps and actual Study Bibles. Greater still, they need to research things like textual variations before circulating false and damaging information like this.

  2. Ann some of those comments are scary. Christians are having a panic attack over this when various translations and omissions took place since the Bible was formatted. We don't have the original manuscripts anyway. Omissions and translations of the letter don't take away the power from the Spirit of the letter. We have the Holy Spirit that gives us revelation and understanding of what is written. She should be ashame of herself for leading these fools astray.

    1. What in the HELL is wrong with you people? You condemn a book for removed verses but want to use a book with removed verses? Remember its KING JAMES VERSION! What's wrong with the original? Oh, wait that would require learning Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic. Keep reading others accounts about how they interpret the Bible as opposed to doing it yourself. God help those who help themselves, if you really seek his word then call him He will be there. People remember when they took the word slavery out and replaced it with servant? Of course not, that's how Africans were enslaved tricked into thinking being a slave was ok.

  3. I'm sorry but, Erica Campbell should've research why these verses were taken out before panicking and being upset for no reason. If you have a parallel Bible the foot notes at the bottom explain why they were taken out. No sinister plan by Satan but these verses were not included in earlier manuscripts of the Bible so NIV and other translations left them out. For example, The Amplified Bible puts these verses in italics and the NASV puts them in brackets and explains why. Also You version Bible app has a little symbol next to these verses in the different translations that says these were not included in the earlier manuscripts. That's why I like to read in different translation to compare and study the footnotes to get more insight and additional info. These folks should not be leading anyone.

    1. Anonymous I hate it when people repost stuff without doing research,It pays to comprehend scripture in context....oh and to understand the actual history of the Bible and its translations. This should have never been posted by her.

  5. I tell you what It scares me how easily people get caught up in a messy storm. It's okay to ignore the fact that Historians have proven time and time again that there are actual books missing from the Bible, like the Book of Mary... But because of one post by a popular person, people are ready to condemn and panic? I can't deal with this craziness..

    1. Sorry but whoever started formulating that post have bamboozled over thousands. These scriptures have been removed for YEARS & it's not controversial. If you read the footnotes you'll see that the scriptures weren't in the original manuscript of the Bible and were thus left out of translations.

    They were never in that Bible to begin with they were in the King James and probably did not belong because the King James was translated many years after the original Greek.
