Difference Between Catholic Bible and King James Bible

Catholic Bible vs. King James Bible

There has been a lot of confusion surrounding the Holy Bible that both Roman Catholic s and Protestants use, because of the varied versions that have been printed and distributed throughout the world today. It may be because of the never ending dispute between Catholics and Protestants on what should be and shouldn’t be included in the Christian Bible that lights the continuity of the said argument.

The Catholic Bible is actually the generic term for the Christian Bible. By nature, it includes the so-called Old and New Testaments. It includes the 5th century Latin Vulgate, which is primarily St. Jerome’s work.

Conversely, the King James Bible version is just one of the many versions of the Holy Book circulated throughout. Some of the other versions made or edited by Roman Catholics include: The Latin Vulgate itself, the Douay-Rheims Version, The Jerusalem Bible and the New American Bible, amongst many others.

At the dawn of the 17th century, the making of the King James Bible version was initiated by the English King James the First. It was said to have been completed around 1611. The King James Version (KJV) is regarded as one of the first English translations of the Catholic Bible, with the Great Bible and the Bishops Bible as its first two English predecessors. The KJV was translated or written with the use of the most original manuscripts in Hebrew and Greek. The problem with the translating process at that time was that the translators were mostly pure Englishmen, with limited knowledge of Hebrew. There were also a small number of texts to which their new version had to be based, including the Greek Textus Receptus for the New Testament and the Hebrew Masoteric for the Old Testament. Their translation also included the Apocrypha, although newer versions of such do not include the said books. Moreover, the scholars who were tasked by the king to do the translation asked for little or no help from anyone in translating the Catholic Bible. The result is a book that contained lots of errors. No wonder there has been many revised versions of this English Bible, named the New King James Version.

Overall, no matter what Bible version you are reading, more or less the message remains the same. Even if the phrasing and wordings are somewhat altered, almost all Bible versions, including the KJV, tells of the same message about God. All in all:

1. The Catholic Bible is a more generic term for the Holy Bible.

2. The KJV is just one of the many other versions of the Holy Bible.

  1. Go back to the Hebrew Bible and There starts the INSPIRED WORD OF GOD. THE NT IS A CONTINUATION OF THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD. All the bibles, with the exception of the removal of the 6 Deuteronocial books, are basically the same, take the NKJV which realistically says the same basic things as the KJV. only the “thy, thee, changed to you, your. The BASE STAYED THE SAME. MOST EDITIONS ARE EDITED FOR THIS REASON, MAKING IT EASIER FOR THE READER, THE INSPIRED WORD IS THE SAME FOR ALL THE BOOKS, Again except the removal of the Deuteronocial which in my opinion is Blasphemous.

    • Of course the KJV is not based upon the Catholic Bible, in fact the rejected it specifically. The majority texts they choose, deliberately rejecting the minority texts of the RCC. The source texts of the Authorized Version are the true texts of Christendom. All of the quote revisions were not of text of KJV but type, you see the spelling was not settled nor the text type, and yes there were some obvious translator errors here and there they wanted to correct but nothing of merit changed unlike the modern versions which have changed the very word of God in hundreds plus points. Compare just these three note well lets differences, start with Matthew 24:36 the NIV adds “not the son” Collossians 1:14 deletes “through the blood” and in Hebrews 7:21 ” after the order of Mechizedech” is removed, look these up in NIV compare them to KJV.

      • This is not true , there have been thousands of ancient biblical documents found since the publication of the KJV .which is the reason the “revisers” went to work in the 1860’s . try listening to someone who knows the history of the English bible .

        • Yes but those text were corrupted by Origen of the Knostics. Origen being the head who thought he knew more than God!

          1,2 and 3rd John were written to refute Knostisim. 33 times in 1st, 3nd and 3rd John, John says you can know! Alleluia!

    • The New King James version of the Holy Bible is blasphemous

    • How are the Deuterocanonical books blasphemous? Since in 2 Macc, the whole story of how the Jews today celebrate Hanukkah, is missing, as is more than 100 years of historical timeline before Christ was removed by Luther bc it did not suit his doctrine. The Canon (table of contents- not a part of the Bible) was decided under Pope Damasus I in The Council of Rome in 382 AD, continued at the Council of Hippo in 393 AD, and confirmed at the Council of Carthage in 397 AD BY St Augustine, which the OT AND NT WERE CONFIRMED AS THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD! This Alexandrian Canon is the Septuagint OT which Jesus Christ quoted, and used. The OT was approved by 70 Jewish elders in 250 BC, who translated OT books into Greek, the popular language at the time. Then 1517 years later Luther rejects the Deuterocanonical books, based on a Jewish (no authority over the established Christians) Pharisaical, Hebrew speaking Palistine group in 90 AD IN JAMNIA. This is your Protestant (protesting based on ignorance) Bible. And did Luther read Rev. 22:19? Probably not! Esp. Since he also wanted to omit Revelations and also James!

  2. Please send bible 2335 crooks st Ashland ky 41101

    • Robert Heath, has anyone sent you a Bible yet? I am just an individual who found this website tonight, as part of a personal study. I see your post at the bottom of the page. I would like to send you one, if you don’t have one yet. Let me know, at scschicksr@gmail.com

  3. @Kim 20dec17: Your appeal to study is admirable: however you do not seem to have got as far as you might. There are a large number of false assertions in what you write – just to take a trivial one, you say, ‘The word “Jew” not come into existence until the year 1775 A.D.’ – but actually it is based on the Old English Iudeas, and in modern English the word is found from around 1275 on in forms such as Gyv, Iuu, Iew, &c. (It stems from the Latin Iudeaus, corresponding to Hebrew y’hudah, and referring originally to a Hebrew of the kingdom of Judeah.)

    More generally, the King James’ translators included many scholars of ancient languages, including Latin and Hebrew – but also of Greek, which is, of course, the language of the New Testament, although you seem unaware of this. (And Jamestown was founded by a joint stock company, not by King James, and initially did not involve slavery – again, you need to study history more closely.). I suggest you start with my post of October 16th, which you will find at the end of the comments, for some reason, and then:
    On the King James version, cf Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_James_Version#Translation_committees

  4. I’m looking into getting a Bible. I was baptized Catholic. I’ve never been a church goer. But now in my 60s I would to start. I’m confused on which bible to get. Thank you for any help.

    • Hi June,
      So glad to hear of your interest. Best place to go? Your nearest Catholic Church. Ask to speak with someone who is in charge of their Adult Faith programs (RCIA) and they will gladly help you in obtain a Catholic Bible. I’d highly recommend asking for information on RCIA as well while you are there. RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adult) is for everyone who is curious to know more about the Catholic faith (confirmed Catholics included) and really help to better understand the complexities and beauty of Catholism. God Bless you on your journey and welcome home!

    • Be careful about any Bible prepared by those with a doctrinal axe to grind, like the Catholics, the Calvinists, and the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Their Bibles are stilted towards their doctrinal beliefs, (and you can’t tell which are true by reading them.)

      The KJV will not steer you wrong. It contains information the others don’t and tells you when they are adding words for clarity, (the italics.) The Thee/Thou, and You/Ye are there for a reason, as well as the “eths” suffix endings, (which stand for a Greek verb tense that English doesn’t have.)

      It’s EXTREMELY accurate, and has stood the test of time, (and contrary to the OP, has not been revised at all, but merely updated with modern spelling – the last time in 1769.)

      And please start your Bible reading in the third chapter of John, where Jesus tells the life-long Catholic Priest that unless he is Born Again, he cannot see or enter the Kingdom of Heaven. (Which is a strange thing to say, if he’s already a Priest.)

      Jesus would like to save you, all by Himself. (If you add to Jesus, you make Him less.) If you say you need to do something to save yourself, then YOU are your savior.

      “But to him that worketh not, but trusteth in Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.”

      That means instead of trying to make yourself good enough for God, (good luck with that, BTW,) you simply repent of that and accept Jesus instead. A one for one.

      And let Him have the honor of saving you, all by Himself.

      • How is Jesus talking to a Catholic priest in John chapter 3 if the Catholic Church was not established until after His death? What in John 3 says that?

        • He speaks with a rabbi not a priest.

        • Not sure what version you got that info from but in all the bibles i have read it says jesus turns and says “rabbi” which is clearly not a catholic priest.

        • Jesus was speaking to Nicodemus, a pharisee, a religious person, might as well have been a priest

          • Rabbi is a Jewish term for teacher. Not a catholic priest. Catholics are Christians not Jews.

        • I think it’s quite easy to realize and understand why he borrowed the title Catholic priest to refer to Nicodemus. Catholic priests are, by their beliefs and extra-biblical doctrines, holier and more righteous than Christ Himself. They are the first that truly need the second birth.

      • Thank you! I was beginning to wonder if anyone even knew the truth. Catholics are not Christians – Christians are not Catholics. Thank you for your response which was put together very well, enough for a small child to understand.

        • I’m glad Tina, you are sitting on the seat of judgement.

        • Wrong..Catholics were the first Christians we wrote the Bible. We have been around for 2000 years. Peter ( which means Rock) is who Jesus built His Church upon. It’s all in the Bible and thats the truth

          • By the way Peter was the first Pope.

          • Oh dear, someone is brainwashed. The fall of Rome, yes. Let’s just give those Christian people a chance and go down easy. Oops! We crucified Peter upside down at his request for spreading the Gospel! We better look good for all to see! Religion and Politics don’t mix. Let’s do religion our way! Try to cover up the hundreds of thousands that we fed to the lions! God will speak to your hearts. His sheep know his voice. Read John 3. And pray where you are. God hears you.

          • As a Catholic, you’re free to believe the falsehoods as long as you live. Who set up the Catholic Church of which Peter was the first Pope? Did Peter institute the paying of homage to idols or the worshipping of ‘Virgin’ Mary who ceased to be a virgin following the birth of Jesus’ biological brothers – James, Joseph, Simon and Jude?

        • One the contrary. The Catholic fairh is Christian. If Catholicism is not Christian, then why is the King James Bible a TRANSLATION of the Catholic Bible?


          • Tina,
            Because the Catholic Bible was the only biblical text at the time that was of any use to the King James Bible scholars. They knew neither New Testament Koine Greek or Old Testament Hebrew, but they could translate the Catholic Bible’s Latin Vulgate version text into Middle English.

        • Anyone who believes in Jesus CHRIST is a Christian. Therefore, Catholics are Christ ians, as they believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Don’t get it twisted. Your statement is just ignorant. Ignorance is a lack of true knowledge. Educate yourself.

          • This statement is 100% false. The word “Christian” is only mentioNed 3 seperate times in the bible. It’s never mentioned as a religious sect, like man has perverted it into being. The world Christian simply means that one does and obeys all the teachings of Christ.

            Catholics by definition are not Christians.

            Christ said “let no man change a jot or a tittle from the law until heaven and earth sease to exsist”. Yet Catholics claim they were given authority to change the 10 commandments. They even falsely declare that gods holy sanctified Sabbath day has been changed to Sunday (the pagan first day of the week).

            We know the Sabbath will never be changed from its original date because God prophesied in the old testament book of Daniel, while talking about the end times on earth, that the beast will change his days and laws. Which is exactly what the Catholic church did in the year 323 under pagan Roman emperor Constantine. God even declared his Sabbath day to be “perpetual”, which literally means “never ending, never changing”, yet Catholics still think they can change it.

            Catholics are the opposite of Christians, because they don’t believe in everything Yeshua taught, they believe his laws and commands weren’t good enough and needed changed. Yet God told us in the book of Daniel, that whoever changed his laws would be doing it under the authority of the beast. Hardly christian.

          • Maybe Yeshua was an idiot and his views were very strange.

          • The Catholic Church is the one true Church of Christ. It was the first and all others are separated from it. Do your work before making false claims. If there had not been a Catholic Church then Martin Luther could not have created he’s 9 thesis’s which he then nailed to The Doors Of Catholic Church’s before he started his off shoot from the One True Church Of Christ.

          • You know a lot of people love to speak without the truth of the knowledge. The old testament was written because that was the law the our creator has put upon us, but the new testament is where jesus Christ our savior the creators only son has be cruxified for us and he came to change some of the laws of the old testament. Why did Jesus with the creators permission permit for jesus to change the 10 commandment to save his children that he love a lot because he knew that with the devil roaming around not everyone was able to keep all ten commandments. So God said that out of the ten, the two most important one would be to love him of all things and to love everyone else as we love ourself, which in a way does apply to the commandments because if you love thy neighbor, you won’t kill, lie, steal, deceive, betray, envied or abandon them in their needs. That is in the bible that Jesus himself changed the commandments, not the catholics. Plus it doesn’t matter what day of the week; we have the Sabbath day, as long as you take the 6 days to work and to go visit the sick, the prisoners, do charity work, feed the poor, volunteer to thoes that need of our assistance and doing your Rosary prayers every day for world peace, inner strength for the tribulation that we about to indure and to save the souls in the purgatory. You can take the 7 day to go to church to praise the lord, read the bible and keep it holy by not doing other things, but dedicating it to the Lord. All this is the bible, but a lot of people don’t read it. Just search( who changed the commandments and make sure to put catholic bible because the protestant bible don’t have all the books because Martin Luther the Antichrist removed them so that everyone could stay away from the real church that Christ established. 2 Juan 1:9-11 states Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.

            Mark 3:24-26
            If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but is coming to an end.

            See God wants just one church and everyone united, not separated.

            Galatians 1:6-13

            6e I am amazed that you are so quickly forsaking the one who called you* by [the] grace [of Christ] for a different gospel7(not that there is another). But there are some who are disturbing you and wish to pervert the gospel of Christ.8f But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach [to you] a gospel other than the one that we preached to you, let that one be accursed!*9As we have said before, and now I say again, if anyone preaches to you a gospel other than the one that you received, let that one be accursed!

            10g Am I now currying favor with human beings or God? Or am I seeking to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a slave of Christ.*

            His Call by Christ.11h Now I want you to know, brothers, that the gospel preached by me is not of human origin.12For I did not receive it from a human being, nor was I taught it, but it came through a revelation of Jesus Christ.*

            13* For you heard of my former way of life in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it,

            Here the Lord is telling all of you that there is only one church which he establish 2000 years ago the Roman Catholic and he is offended that you allowed for others to decive you to go to false churches.

            Matthew 16:18
            And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the Gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
            19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven: whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

            Peter was the first pope of the Roman Catholic the church that Jesus Christ established and said you must go and attend to it. Plus Peter is the only one that can get you to heaven, so no other churches can. Satan separated the church and by using this poor people to blind everyone, so that they don’t attend God’s true church. One God, One church and one teaching. People need to start reading the bible and if I was ya I would start with revelations from beginning to end because what’s coming to the human race that don’t follow Gods command is very horrifying. There’s not a worst blind person that doesn’t want to see the truth when is smack right in there faces. God bless!!!

        • Catholics are the first Christians. They are called Catholics by St Ignatius of Antioch to describe the universality of their mission.

        • Anyone who believes in Jesus Christ is a Christian regardless of what faith you claim to be. Some may be misguided nevertheless still a Christian. Atheists are not Christians. Agnostics are not also. Please bear this in mind.
          NCantu ORDM

        • Do you even know what the word Catholic means? It means, universal. You should research more before you post things like “Catholics are not Christians and Christians are not Catholic.” The fact is that Christianity is Catholic, it is indeed universal, it is inclusive, and it is broad. In essence all Christians are Catholic. All denominations of Christianity derrive from the mother church.

        • Incorrect all Catholicsare Christians but not all Christians are Catholics

        • Many Catholics are Christians more than those who claim they are Christian’s. It’s about being the sheep. If want to go to heaven, be the sheep, one who follows jesùs without the statues and follow his command

      • I was trying to figure out which Bible was right for me. I was raised Southern Baptist & always thought KJV was the right version. Our new young pastor says any are good, but I have noticed the meaning is changed with the wording.
        Thank you for helping me to realize KJV
        the right bible

      • First of all you say that he was catholic. Not true he was a pharisees. Second of all did you read john 3:15 and john 3:18 . Why do people constantly pick on the Catholic church when we follow what Jesus taught us to the best of our ability. Both verses state ” we are saved if we believe in Jesus Christ as our Saviour. If you are a follower of Jesus, why is it that , you say some people are saved that believe in Jesus and try to follow His teachings and others aren’t who also follow Jesus and His teachings. If you Truly believe Jesus is Lord and try to follow His teachings to the best of your ability, you are saved… Also Luke 9:49-50. We are all followers of the same Christ Jesus

        • Jesus said “anyone that changes even the least commandment of my father’s, is a liar, and the truth is not on them, and in that day I will say get away from me, I never knew you man of lawlessness”.

          Catholics changed gods 7th day Sabbath to the 1st day, not a smart move.

          Do Catholics not read scripture? God commanded that his Sabbath remain “perpetual” for all of eternity. This means “never ending, never changing”, yet Catholics seriously thought they had authority to change something that our creator commanded to NEVER BE CHANGED? IT’S SERUOUSLY LAUGHABLE.

          • I have wondered about the 7th day and what was the name of the seventh day when God ended all of his creation ? Did not the Jewish calendar read from right to left? What if we today would read from right to left, what would be the seventh day then? Sunday ?

          • Are you a born again? Cause what you are saying is self opinionated , prejudice and stupid, I would not trust a born again they are all sckers.

          • It’s not laughable it’s very sad I believe a lot of Catholics are saved I also believe a lot of Catholics are not aware off these changes I recently found out about the changes that Catholics Pope’s and people in authority over the church made and it blew my mind but we are not here to judge we are here to teach the way you’re coming out these people if it were me I would be mad at the way you’re coming at me and just shrug you off rather than if you came at me nicely with knowledge I would want to investigate a little more luckily I already came to this conclusion not too long ago but I do know I’m not the one that judge Only God can judge you don’t know who’s going to happen in who’s going out regardless of their beliefs that’s up to God but what you can do is help spread the correct knowledge to the best of your ability God bless everybody

          • Catholics renamed the seventh day, God’s day, Domenica , Dimanche, Domingo, Duminica

            Pagans call it Sunday, Sonntag , Sondag etc.

            The calendar has changed so much, we don’t know if Sunday is a Sunday or Saturday is the day of the Sabbath.

            And please pray to God, and not to Jesus. We should always pray to God even if we believe in the holy Trinity.

          • So, when do you go to mass?

          • If you do your history the calendar has changed multiple times. A Jewish calendar of today or a Georgian calendar will not ever match to the oldest ones found. As for changing day of the week of the Sabbath you must also remember the Bible says every day is to be treated as the sabbath. We truly don’t know what day was the sabbath because before the calendar was formed the stars were the calendar. You truly need to read more. As for Catholics idolizing Mary I partly agree but only because that is what I was taught. But I don’t believe they should have statues of her. To me praying to Mary is wrong because no man comes to the Father except through Christ. And I think confession is weird too because to me it is almost going backwards where sacrifices were given and the priest of the old testament did the prayers and asked for God to forgive his people. I wasn’t raised Catholic but I believe if any person claims the birth death and resurrection of Christ for their sins they are Christians. I dont care what day they worship on Or what Bible they use or if they attend Church of some type or not. John 3:16 is my reasoning for that. And the law of the old testament was fulfilled by Christ so if the 10 commandments were changed then why and what? You have shown no evidence of such. And I have never been taught that and have attended several different Faith’s. So please give clear things words and meanings change and words are removed from dictionaries or added all the time so updated to help people understand not to remove anything.

        • Answer these two questions . .What are you depending on to get to heaven? How does it help you?

        • Amen to that! If one follows the teachings of Christ Jesus and is trusting in Him for the forgiveness of sins, you are a “Christian”, redeemed, born again, saved…

      • The are two points in seperate posts that need to be addressed: first-All Catholics are Christians while not all Christians are Catholic. Catholicism (Roman & Othodox) are merely different ‘flavors’ of Christianity as are the mainstream Protestants (Baptists, Lutheran, etc).

        As far as slanted translations of the bible look no further than the previously mentioned New World Translation Of The Holy Scriptures published by the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society (AKA Jehovah’s Witnesses). All one needs to look at is John 1:1 (as a start).

      • And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Jesus telling the future ” first Pope” in an unbroken chain of “representatives” of CHRIST on earth for when he departs earth. No church other than the Holy Roman Catholic church has this or ever will. In the beginning was the Catholic (universal church). Then it put together HOLY SCRIPTURES. The “reformation” was a “protest” of this ancient FIRST christian church. Protest-ant came out of this. With all its reasons and excuses it does NOT TOUCH Christ. I want to be part of the ORIGINAL CHRISTIANS WITH their teachings (traditions) and original writtings. All churches after reformation are “sprouts” from the original church which Christ himself gave the “keys” to St Peter.. .and so the ENEMY began to separate people from the ORIGINAL/ FIRST ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH founded BY CHRIST passed on to Peter. P.s. An unbroken chain of Popes touching CHRIST to this day. Christ is perfect and his church isnt but the Holy Spirit guides it till the end of time as he promised. God Bless all reading this.

        • Peter was a devout Jew. Catholics despise jews and reject their teachings and traditions. That’s how we know Peter was never the first Pope. Catholics changed gods holy perpetual (never ending, never changing) Sabbath day, that’s how we know your a false prophet! God said in the book of Daniel, when talking about the end times, “the beast will think to change my times and my laws”.

          False prophet Catholics changed gods times ( 7th day Sabbath for 1st day sabbath) and holy feast days (instead of Passover, they honor manmade pagan Easter and christmas). Hint: no-one in the bible even honored birthdays because it was rooted in sorcery and astrology. Wake up

          • I get the impression that perpetual in this context is kind of beyond days of the week. It’s endless and changeless in essence.
            It’s spiritual rather than material. Like scripture should be.
            Plus with the changing of calendars through the ages, day names would have been moved around, so would god just like the name Friday, or would it be a actual day marked but now lost, or is it just arbitrary!?

          • Then Enemy has taken up residence in your heart. Through hatred you have opened a door to Satan and he has confused and perverted your faith – as is his want.

            You can only remove Satan’s influence upon you by cleansing yourself of hatred with the water of God’s pure love. Remember God loves all of his creation – without exception. Every single person. Even those that YOU consider to be unworthy, wicked or evil – God LOVES them.

            When you can rid yourself of your judgmental urges, and sincerely love all people without measuring their worth by your standards, you will become once again as pure as the day of your birth. Only then will you be ready to receive God’s complete and eternal embrace of love. Until that time, your relationship withe God will suffer and Satan will continue to push you away from God’s love.

            These are not words from Satan’s “Bible” – which all of you are arguing about. (Think about it, would “Holy” words cause so much dissension, anger, hatred, and vitriol amongst people? Would not God’s true message be obvious and overwhelming and indisputable?). Why do all of you believe the “Old Testament” is relevant when Jesus is reported to have said that he was the fulfillment of the law and that there was now a NEW law, a NEW (and ONLY) commandment based in love of God and each other? Why do you speak of Daniel, or Melchizedek, or Solomon? They are of the ancients, not of the new era of Christ and the fulfillment of God’s love.

            Don’t be fooled. The “Word” has been tainted with pollution by the Enemy, using weak human beings to accomplish his greatest deceit. Example: Paul was NEVER an Apostle of Christ (only he, himself, proclaimed himself to be an Apostle). Christ did not choose Paul to follow him while He walked the Earth. Yet all of you so called Christians worship the words of Paul as the true word of God.

            Don’t just believe what I have said. Pray for true revelation and discernment. God will answer…and enlighten you.

            Reject Satan and LOVE GOD!

      • Good evening.

        Your post was very informative except for the accuracy of John and in the third chapter about Nicodemus going to Jesus. There was no Catholics then. They came about way after Christ. Just an FYI.


        • Peter was the first poop he was the successor to Christ he still is Christ on earth. If you read the Bible you would know that because Jesus said that our theater and upon this rock I will build my church.

      • That’s right. If it were possible to “save yourself” you wouldn’t need Jesus or the Word of God.

        John 1 – King James Version (KJV)
        1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Jesus is the Word. Amazing.


      • Yes right on it. Thank you!. People need ro hear the truth.

      • Born agains give other Christians a bad name. They listen to CDs of teachings not realizing they are keeping some fraudster rich who is reading a verse from a KJV.

      • How would you know the KJV is true , typical protestant reaction .

      • Thank God for your post

      • The term “good luck” denotes asking for favor by the God of luck mentioned in the Bible. The God of Luck is actually Satan himself. So those who would ask for “LUCK” or chance would not be relying on God. God says to throw your burdens on him.

      • How could Jesus tell a Catholic priest anything, when Catholicism didn’t exist yet?

    • If you were baptized Catholic, then you are on the right track. If you want the truth I would recommend the Jerusalem Bible. But don’t take my word for.Catholicism which means universal is 2000 years old started by Jesus Himself. Simon Peter (Peter, which means Rock) was our first Pope. Just do your research and decide for yourself.

    • Based on the findings of the Dead See Scrolls, the King James Version is the one that matched most accurately…99% accuracy. A few differences were in punctuation. For example when Jesus said to the thief on the cross, “I tell you, today You shall be with Me in Paradise.” It should read, “I tell you today, “You shall be with Me in paradise.” Jesus did not go to paradise that day. He went to the grave. On the third day, He rose and stayed on earth for 40 days before ascending. The Catholic Bible was written later, and the Ten Commandments were changed by the Catholic church. Most specifically, they subtracted the 2nd commandment about not making any graven images, moved the 4th commandment and made it tbe 3rd, changing it from 89 words on keeping the seventh day Sabbath holy to 8 words on keeping the Lords day holy and claiming that it was the 1st days of the week. They openly admit changing the day themselves. Nowhere in the Bible can Sunday be found. Constantine changed it so that the pagans would join the Catholic church because they worshipped the pagan sun god. This Sunday worship is actually a counterfeit of the true Seventh day Sabbath. There are many other versions that have not made changes that actually change the meanings, such as the New King James Version, the New American Standard Version and others that I am not as much familiar with. I hope this helps and if you ask God for truth He will give it to you. Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no man comes to the Father but by Me.” He is the only one who paid the price for our sins by Shedding His innocent blood for us. He is the only One who has earned the right to forgive sins. Anyone else claiming that right is lying. They crucified Jesus because He said He was God and He forgave sins, calling it blasphemy. Except Jesus really was and still is the true God according to the Bible that hasn’t been changed.

      • I have had the same discussion with family and church members about Sunday sabbath and was told I should be Jewish. Not so,God gave Saturday as His day and all peoples day of rest in Genesis.There was no Jews at that time
        I think it’s time we went back to the truth Study The Revelation yourself open your heart and mind,the answers are there but a lot of churches don’t seem to want to open up this part of the blble.

      • The KJV is a good translation. But other versions are also helpful. I agree with Chris Hughes (July 22 2018). “We are saved if we believe in Jesus Christ ad our Savior.” PERIOD. The law was not given to save us BUT to simply point us to the Savior (a sign post). Now that the Savior has come, we are no longer under the law BUT under Christ. To Him we cannot add law-keeping (Sabbath or not committing any evil! If we think we can) or any good behavior. Christians live by faith, i. e., that Christ is fashioning us according to His good purpose (Philippians 2:12-13). So Him alone enables us to be loving, not judgmental, tolerant, not offending anyone-Jew, or Gentile. An impossible life to live BUT possible only thru faith in Christ. A worshipful life and of good service to fellow humanity like the Good Samaritan. A true child of God.

    • The parallel bible
      It has king james,new living translation i believe
      NIV NEW INTERNARION VERSION and another.Start reading at the Gospel of st john.Read slow one verse at a time and ask Jesus to open the eyes of your understandig and give thanks for every new thing you see and learn about Jesus.Read only a few verses or a verse a day.This is the bread you pray about in the our Father( The Lords prayer). Think on that verse till you know it by heart.Jesus was God but also a Jew of the tribe of Judah his own people .God loves you! I know this will help you

    • Kjv is your best bet anymore unless you have problems reading old language then nkjv i read a douay rheims edited rememberance edition but that is only because it is the only one i could get in my area.

    • Try reading the GUI range version of the Roman catholic Bible is going to be your best bet for getting the true word of God and his Divine Son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

    • I would warn you to stay away from the pagan church (rcc). run dont walk and find a church that preaches the gospel not traditions of men.

      • umm have you read: 1 Cor 11:2, or perhaps 2 Thess 2:15, 2Thess 3:6, Jn 21:25, Acts 20:35, 2 Tim 2:20?
        Or are you one that holds true the “Sinner’s Prayer” TRADITION, which is not BIBLICAL… Just sayin’ 😉

    • KJV forever.

    • Douay-Rheims Holy Bible!! Buy on amazon. Father Haydock commentary to each passage is invaluable for study purposes as well. It’s old English… it feels like your reading an old text which I find beautiful.

    • Hello June. I know this post is old but I came across this and felt compelled to answer. Please get yourself a King James Version of the bible. Not the NKJV, as that has also been compromised. You see, the devil likes to pervert and distort God’s word. That’s why all these false bible translations keep coming out. You came from Catholicism. I strongly urge you to avoid going back as it is a false “Christian” religion. Most of the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church go against the Word of God. They preach a works based salvation which is against the Word of God. Catholics that I know are very sincere and good, and they believe what the church teaches is true. I truly pray that God will reveal the truth to them so they can come out of her.

    • King James watch on youtube a vid called King James vs other versions.

  5. The King used like 40+ scholar’s. I think it was 46 but not positive. One scholar alone spoke over 14 languages. They spent like 6 years. I’d recommend someone else rewrite this wiki answer! Obviously whoever wrote it didn’t do any reaserch

    • No it was actually, 52 scholars, fluent in Greek and Hebrew, which took 7 years to the Greek and Hebrew texts to translate and create.
      A Brother in Christ

  6. This is false difference. Look at the original King James /Authorised Version 1611 – it’s like the catholic version!

    • Alif, No the King James is not like the Catholic Bible. For example, God wrote the ten Commandments in stone with His own FINGER. The Catholic church admits they changed them. They also added books to the Scriptures. In Revelation 22 verses 18 and 19 Jesus says if anyone adds to or takes away from the prophecy of this book [Revelation], the plagues that are written in it shall be added unto him.

      • No. Protestant bible came because there already was an original Bible. It came after. This King James changed the original to accomodate his urge to divorce. So he really did something the original (Catholic) bible says “to not take out” of holy scriptures…. Holy Catholic Church was around WITH THE original bible for over 1,500 yrs until a KING JAMES decided to take out and add to this ORIGINAL HOLY BOOK. I follow what Christ left… I dont follow a KING JAMES opinions or whims…. I wanna read what God left us ORIGINALLY. Read historical facts.

        • That’s what some pedophile priest told you, not what is true. The KJV manuscripts were well documented long before that catholic heresy advocated by those wicked Jesuits intruded and twisted those manuscripts. Explain how the KJV has to do something with his “urge to divorce”.

          • Are you a born again? They give other Christians a bad name.

          • There are some dirty protestant pedophile priests walking around so why call a Catholic priest a pedophile?

          • Catholic priests are called out for their pedo crimes in no small part because they exploit their position of authority and trust to take advantage; i.e., rape nuns, and children in the name of God, and not only make a living from it but also receive a lifetime of protection from the head of their church; not God, but a man who feigns ignorance of their acts. Can you believe that the pope is only just starting to hear of their heinous acts. On what planet has he been living all his life? With such self professed ignorance of this centuries long problem, the pope, and all his predecessors, is hardly qualified for the position he now occupies. If he gets his head out of his a** long enough he may even learn that Galileo was right about the motions of the planets. That little detail will really blow his mind

          • Name me one priest that you know that is a pedophile. Secondly how are you going to call a priest pedophiles when there’s a whole bunch they’ve never done a thing wrong in their lives. Thirdly not every Catholic is a pedophile. So do your research and then come talk to somebody who knows what they’re talking about. King James started the church of England because he wanted a divorce and the pope refuse to do a divorce because divorce as you can read in the Bible is against all teachings of the church and of Christ. If you read the Bible it says what God has brought to gather let no man tear asunder.

  7. Hello, could anyone tell me what bible did the Knights Templar use .
    Thank you.

  8. The KJV is never used by Catholics. It is a Proddy bible.

  9. In God’s and Jesus eye’s we are all the same my friend’s Do not discriminate each other’s religious beliefs One God that’s it really is it not and if you know Jesus then Love each,other the person as He doe’s and not the religion or choice of bible etc.We all stand before Him at the end Don’t allow evil to taint or deceive you ok Love each other as I have loved you is what He asks of you

  10. Catholicism is a pagan religion made by those wicked Jesuits. All catholics will go to hell unless they accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.

    • A typical Protestant response. The protestant religion is loose we need some Martin is on Calvin is home all the other ones. James from the Catholic Church if you do your history Martin Luther with his the season was protesting the Catholic church therefore without the Catholic Church you wouldn’t even have a religion to fall under. Secondly without the Catholic Church there would be no other churches Christ established the Catholic Church when he told Peter that George Peter and upon this rock I will build my church. Finally if you read the Bible again without Peter without being poked without being first pope there would be no other churches because there wouldn’t of been a Catholic Church to begin with for Martin Luther to protest against.

    • Do you have to believe in hell, in order to go to heaven?

    • T you know nothing about the catholic church, im sorry to say but it looks like you are just blaspheming against the Mother Church, I cant find an appropriate word for your behaviour. The Catholic Church unlike Many Other Churches accept Jesus as the One and True God, and we believe in The Holy Trinity which is a mystery only a true CATHOLIC will understand we believe in Mother Mary and In The Holy Spirit who Filled within Mother Mary so she could concieve Jesus. T I ask God to forgive you for talking wrong about Him and His selected People.

  11. I grew up catholic in a catholic school and church. Everyday we had mass . I had communion in the 2nd grade and was baptized as a baby just like almost evey catholic. When I was in my twenties I was spiritually lost . I started studying the kjv of the Holy Bible and God spoke to me like never before. I asked Jesus to come into my life and forgive me for my sins . I got saved . Its not fake its the difference in eternal life and Hell. I never had the personal relationship with Christ I do now even though I thought I had especially when I was younger. I would encourage anyone who is Catholic to not led pride step in front of your salvation. It’s different when u acknowledge the fact your A sinner in need of forgiveness and confess your belief in Jesus Christ being the son of God with your heart . The way to Christ is narrow its through the cross not any other way . Please accept salvation and know God like youve never known him . God bless our nation . God bless a lost world and those who are neglecting the word of Christ . I pray youll come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ

    • I actually went through the same kind of thing growing up. I came to Christ in my early twenties and I was and still am forever changed from knowing Christ personally and even though I was”confirmed” Catholic at thirteen years old, I didn’t know the right way to God until my husband introduced me to the Lord in my early twenties. Only if you have a priest who really teaches that you have to accept Christ into your heart to be truly saved, you aren’t taught the truth about the most important part of being a child of God. I am not able to say that every Catholic doesn’t know the difference between just going to confession and truly having a personal relationship with Christ and I just pray that everyone, of any denomination, receive Christ into their hearts and souls and have the joy, peace and fellowship that He really wants for us.

  12. I am elderly and growing up as a Catholic we were not to study the Bible. Only the priest had access and the only Scripture I heard was 15 minutes of the Gospel during Mass. All other was church doctrine and memorized prayer. Which did help me at all UNTIL I WAS REBORN – THANK YOU JESUS!

  13. Is it not true the Roman Catholic Church has put more Christians to death as heretics than any other church in history since Christ Jesus was on the earth?

    Also why do the songs sang in Latin during mass sing praise of/to Lucifer and not of Jesus Christ?

    • Name me one Catholic him that his song at the traditional Latin mass. That seems of all praises to Lucifer. If you look through them none of them do. Go talk to at priestly fraternity Saint Peter FSSP or an SSPX society of Saint Pius the 10th parish priest and he’ll set you straight.

  14. Marie has the only true meaning of this entire post… We will all be before God and get judged. Love each other. Do not discriminate against the others. It states in Matthew and Mark that friends will hate each other brother killing brother families turning against each other nation against nation kingdom against kingdom. We all believe in the same person. We r in the last days guys he stated love one another love ur enemies forgive them that persecute u because of my name remember he paid the price for every one of this Earth not one person in the world could ever go thru the torment and punishment that he went thru. Even when he was being beat spat on hung on the cross he prayed for God to forgive them for they know not what they do. this man is amazing look around u in the world just get up walk outside look up n breath in the fresh air n listen to the wind in the trees n sound of the water n wildlife u will see the beauty of the earth he created n yet man destroy it every day. He’s coming soon and its just round the corner be ready guys n remember love each other God bless you all

    • God has said, there are no other God’s besides me. Why do Catholics pray to Mary as another god?

      • We do not pray to Mary as another God. We venerate her as the mother of Jesus Christ the one true God.

      • Because Catholics never read the Bible. That’s how they can so easily trade gods. After all, who needs to pray to the Creator of Jesus when you have more than 2,000 substitute gods standing by? Catholicism has corrupted the teachings of Y’shua Ha Maschiach; that is Hebrew for, Jesus the Messiah, since the very beginning so they will be able to freely worship their true gods… power, money, and greed. If there is a Heaven, and I pray that there is, I am quite certain that not one Catholic soul dwells there, much less, any pope who ever lived

  15. I am an ex-catholic now saved by Jesus Christ. If you want eternal life, the Bible says you need to repent of ALL your sins AND the Lord knows your heart. If repentance IS true to heart, and you truly want to walk with Christ through your life, most likely you will receive salvation and then you need to be baptized in Christ to receive Holy Spirit and transform your life to “walking with Christ”. The Holy Spirit leads and guides you according to the Way Christ lived (reading the Bible is a must). And you MUST OBEY the Holy Spirit within you. It’s not easy but it is simple. God bless you all in Jesus’ name!!

    • Tammy you don’t need to repent your sins , don’t get sucked in to the born again mob , just be good.

      • No David, you need to repent. Forget about all the denomination’s and just focus on Jesus Christ, your Saviour. A personal relationship with Christ is what matters, Not all this childish arguments who’s denomination is right/ wrong. Confess, repent, pray and sin no more.

  16. I’m in awe that a website religious in content would have total strangers lashing out at each other over which religion is better. Jesus is weeping and Satan is living his best life. I will pray for you all.

  17. Catholics, Protestants, Jews whatever. It seems all of these posts don’t seem to be Christian. None of them.
    Jesus said “love thy neighbor as thyself”. Seems you all hate each other more than you love. At least your comments support that. Arguing whose is Christian and not. Your neighbor is everyone one comes in contact with, including messageing and texting.

    • Wow, Just be good? There’s going to be a lot of good people in hell because they never surrender their life to Christ. Only one way guys… There’s only one way !!! Remember who said “I am the way?” It was Jesus. You either come in through Jesus, or you don’t come in at all. Jesus told us to GO, make disciples. Do you realize that over 90% of people who “claim” to be a Christian will NEVER share their faith ! Don’t think you are going to hear the words “ well done good and faithful servant “ from God if you just live your life just bring good. Matthew 28…Go, Baptize and Trach them about Jesus. They need to see His Love through you.

  18. The only way you will ever know which should be the REAL book of Jesus is to read the manuscripts yourself.
    The bible was translated by people/priests that were under the control of the kings or emperors at the time.
    Meanings of some words have different meanings in different context.
    The bible is the best way to control people and have them follow the leaders of the country/world.
    You may say this is blasphemy or not true, but have a look around. The leaders of the world are destroying us, we have to follow them and do as they say.
    They have us fight each other through war, terrorism and RELIGIOUS beliefs.
    To follow the lord god is to have nothing of value and to give yourself to him in body, heart and soul, ‘right’
    Then why does EVERY religious group have more money, property and assets than any other person in the world.
    Religion tells you to help the poor and the needy, but the they still have billions of dollars and assets.
    So going on the bible the people of that religion will not go to heaven as they have not given up their processions as they are still with their church.

  19. John 19:26-27 King James Version (KJV)
    26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!

    27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

    The reason I quoted is that I believe Jesus wanted us to know that Mary is our earthy and Heavenly Mother. Why wouldn’t Jesus want us to revere her? My mother in Heaven has done great things for me here on earth through her intercession to Her Son. My brother is not Catholic and tells me to go directly to Jesus and yes he does have a point, but I really don’t see the huge deal in praying to Mary. She brought me to Jesus. Anyone who brings you to the Lord is pretty good and cannot be of the devil. Please remember that Jesus told us the greatest commandment and that is to “Love” one another.

  20. Jesus is about love. Love your neighbour as your self. Sadly many of the above comments are not very Cristian.
    Stop the bickering and unite in praying for everyone. How can we have peace while bickering. Jesus will take care of you as long as believe in what You believe while respecting your neighbors beliefs and showing your love for them.
    God bless all who read this

  21. i see so the bible with all its translations & variations are clearly a tainted and corrupted word of God and in fact an man made piece of literature for furthering on a political agenda and religious greed? To cut the long story short this is pretty much it.. no question about it despite all the brainwashing and explanations!

  22. Most of the unloving comments I have read here seem to stem from either ignorance or judgement. I am not a scholar nor am I perfect. I am a sinner because I am a human being. After years of study and instruction (under Roman Catholic and Protestant translations) of scripture, I know what God put forth and Jesus lived on Earth. Please treat each other with the love and kindness Jesus modeled. He was the Word made flesh so that we could see how to live. You break my heart.

  23. Mark 9:38-41

    38 “Teacher,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.

    39 “Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “For no one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me, 40 for whoever is not against us is for us. 41 Truly I tell you, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to the Messiah will certainly not lose their reward.

    Even though we are more connected to Christians around the world, it seems that we are further apart. We become followers of our denomination, our church, or our theology instead of being followers of Christ. (Even though we are more connected to Christians around the world, it seems that we are further apart. We become followers of our denomination, our church, or our theology instead of being followers of Christ. (Jullian Nunnaly)

    I believe the end result of our faith is far more important than how we got that faith.

  24. The ESV is an excellent version of the Bible. It’s a conservative Evangelical revamp of the RSV which was the version used in universities for decades. It is a translation in the Tyndale – KJV tradition and renders verses traditionally and majestically.

    Catholic Bishops in England appreciate its strengths and are preparing a new lectionary. It will be great to have Catholics and educated Protestants reading from the same page.

    The ESV is widely available but if you want a Catholic Edition imprimatur with all the books you’ll have to order it from India or wait a few years.
