Arianism Begets The Created God
John 1:18 “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.”
Now we come to a verse that has been of great interest to the Devil and his dupes … the SCHOLARS for nearly two thousand years!!!
[We need to be STUDENTS of God’s WORD … taught by the HOLY SPIRIT.
There are those [the SCHOLARS] who will corrupt the word of GOD in order to attack Jesus Christ.
They were there in Paul’s day and they are here today.
[2 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.”
There are 24 words in verse eighteen, and it’s the twelfth word in the Authorized Version [A.V. 1611] that the translators of the NIV, ASV, NASV can not keep their dirty little fingers off of.
Now, let’s look at this twelfth word in John 1:18, which is of so much interest to the Scholars and THE DEVIL.
Let look at it. In the New American Standard it reads this way: “No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten 1God, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.”
The superscript 1 is inserted before “God” as a reference to a margin note: “Some later mss. Read, Son.” [This is found on page 139 of the 1971 first edition of the NASV produced by The Lockman Foundation, 1960, 1962, 1963, 1968, 1971.]
In The Forward on page iii, we find this statement. “(This translation follows the principles used in the American Standard Version 1901 known as the Rock of Biblical honesty.)”
It’s anything but honest!!!
The Lockman Foundation followed the NATURALISTIC PRINCIPLES of NATURAL MEN … Westcott and Hort.
[1 Corinthians 2:14] “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
They [Westcott and Hort] were unsaved men who rejected the DEITY of Jesus Christ. You can not apply naturalistic principles to a spiritual BOOK! [The BIBLE is a supernatural SPIRITUAL BOOK].
There you have it … in the NASV … there are TWO GODS … one here in: “No man has seen God at any time” and another … a created God in … “the only begotten God”.
This is what the Jehovah Witness’s “New World Translation" has also.
The Jehovah Witness’s are the modern day Arians who deny that Jesus Christ’s deity. They deny that HE IS JEHOVAH!
The Arian heresy claims that Jesus Christ is a created god.
Arianism Begats The Created God!
Lockman Foundation member, Frank Logsdon, Renunciation:
“I must under God renounce every attachment to the New American Standard Version. I'm afraid I'm in trouble with the Lord. . .We laid the groundwork; I wrote the format; I helped interview some of the translators; I sat with the translator; I wrote the preface. . .I'm in trouble; I can't refute these arguments; its wrong, terribly wrong; its frighteningly wrong; and what am I going to do about it. When questions began to reach me at first I was quite offended. . . I used to laugh with others. ..However, in attempting to answer, I began to sense that something was not right about the New American Standard Version. I can no longer ignore these criticisms I am hearing and I can't refute them...The deletions are absolutely frightening. . .there are so many. . .Are we so naive that we do not suspect Satanic deception in all of this? Upon investigation, I wrote my very dear friend, Mr. Lockman, explaining that I was forced to renounce all attachment to the NASV. The product is grievous to my heart and helps to complicate matters in these already troublous times...I don't want anything to do with it. [T]he finest leaders that we have today...haven't gone into it [the new version's use of a corrupted Greek text], just as I hadn't gone into it. . .that's how easily one can be deceived...I'm going to talk to him [Dr. George Sweeting, president of Moody Bible Institute] about these things. You can say the Authorized Version [KJV] is absolutely correct. How correct? 100% correct!. . .I believe the Spirit of God led the translators of the Authorized Version. If you must stand against everyone else, stand." Dr. Frank Logsdon
In the King James Bible it is ONE GOD: with The Father and The Son and The Holy Spirit in communion. [SOUL … BODY … SPIRIT … a TRINITY]
THESE THREE ARE ONE.
[Colossians 2:9] “For in him [Jesus Christ] dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” [1 John 5:7] “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” Scripture with Scripture!!! “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.”
The SON … when he was on this earth … declared The Father. [1 Timothy 3:16] “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God [Jesus Christ] 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.”
It is the Father who has not been seen!
[1 Thessalonians 2:13] “For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.”
