"Years and years previous to this someone had given me a little book about the superiority of the KJV version and I remember quite honestly that I thought that was hilarious. I thought, 'Someone has taken a large portion of that person's brain." - Gail Riplinger, on "New Age Bible Versions" video.
But the inconsistencies of the new Bible versions shocked Riplinger as she studied the text changes in the new Bible versions.
As a college professor she shared Jesus Christ with her college students when they came to her with their personal problems.
Together they would look up verses in the Bible to find answers to these problems. Often they would use the student's new version Bible.
To Riplinger's surprise she found over and over that the key elements of salvation, comfort and healing were missing from the verses in these new versions of the Bible.
She began to compare the KJV with these new Bible versions and came face to face with the fact that the new Bible versions' texts are changed to accommodate all religions and their 'gods,' thus changing theology and removing the truth that will set people free.
Riplinger tells us in a live television interview on her New Age Bible Versions Video that, "New Agers have always said that we need a semantic bridge to bring the world religions all together and we need common names for things. What is happening in New Age literature is that Buddha is disappearing, Buddha being the prophet over in the east. Krishna is disappearing. And even in Luciferian literature Lucifer's name is disappearing and being replaced by the Lord, the Christ, the One and the Spirit.
"Now we are seeing a parallel move within the new Bible versions where it's not Jehovah anymore its just 'Lord.' It's not Jesus Christ it is just 'the Christ.'
"They have separated Christ from Jesus in the new Bible versions because they want 'the Lord,' 'the Christ,' 'the One' and 'the Spirit' rather than the personal identity of the historic God of the Old Testament which is Jehovah and the God of the New Testament which is the Lord Jesus Christ."
Riplinger points out that the new versions remove Jesus Christ because, "The religions of the world believe that 'god' created all things but not by Jesus Christ."
For New Agers, Jesus Christ is too narrow a definition of "god." The different gods of all the world's religions fit neatly in the categories of the Lord, the Christ, the One and the Spirit.
Therefore there is no need to proselytize people from other religions because their 'god' is really the same as yours and all these 'gods' lead down the same "path" to heaven, don't they?
John 14:6 reminds us of the truth, "Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'"
