God gives us a stern warning not to add or take away from His words, calling those who tamper with His words accursed. If you do a comparison between the different "Bible" versions, you will find that they are not all made equal. I wouldn't ask you to simply trust in me, but to do further research and find out for yourself. The King James Bible uses the Masoretic Text of the Hebrews for the Old Testament, and the Antiochan Greek text for the New Testament. Most modern alternatives to the Bible have a foundation built on the Samaritan Torah/Pentateuch and the Westcott and Hort (of the Ghostly Guild) Greek Text. This Westcott and Hort Greek text is also the underlying text used by the Jehovah's Witness Bible, the New World Translation (NWT). Alexandria, was the epicenter so to speak for gnosticism in the ancient world, and what came out of it was the Septuagint (LXX). The Septuagint (LXX) has been highly regarded unfortunately in many colleges and seminaries, I've attended two of them. These teachers were nice men, but unfortunately compromised and went the way of Baalam when it came to protecting the Word of God. When it comes to choosing between fearing God and men, fear God. God's words are a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. His words endure forever. We live by every word which proceeds out of the mouth of God.
