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.
