“Missing Verses and Lucifer is Jesus??!!”
First of all, I want to say that this is difficult message to bring to my brothers and sisters in Christ. But not only are we supposed to encourage and edify each other, we should also warn each other of deception.
Think on this: If the Constitution was “translated” into various modern versions so that more people could “understand it” would we still think that we are holding to the original words of the forefathers of this country??
Now, of course, the constitution has been amended, but at least we know which words were amended!
So why are we okay, with the inspired words of our Heavenly Father being changed into a version “we can understand?”
Get your Bibles out!!! Or use biblegateway.com to read verses in different versions (NIV, NLT, NASB, etc.) & parallel them to see various versions at once.

The NIV calls Lucifer, “Jesus” ??!
