NIV Missing Scripture? - 12/17/2006
I really like your website but I see that you
reference the NIV Bible frequently. The NIV version of the Bible is
missing more than a significant amount of scriptures; enough to make
that Bible not worthy to read. Why do you use the NIV?
CONTENDER MINISTRIES RESPONSE:
Hi E. B. Thanks for the nice feedback on the website. We actually use
several translations, but mostly the NIV, NASB, and KJV. Those three
are the most accurate. However, while you believe the NIV is missing
Scripture, that is actually not true. Most of the earliest manuscripts
found attest to the fact that the NIV is much closer to the original
writings, and the KJV has been based on a Greek text that had added to
Scripture. You won't find these additions in the NIV. For more

I hope this answers things for you. God bless.
