PLEASE, WARNING - DO NOT BUY OR USE A NEW VERSION OF THE NEW INTERNATIONAL BIBLE (NIV)
The NIV version of the Bible is being desecrated. I read an alert on Facebook warning us of this. The NIV Bible was published by Zondervan but is now owned by Harper Collins who has also published the Satanic Bible and The Joy of (censored) Sex. I could not believe my eyes when I followed the alert and checked out verses that have now been removed from the NIV Bible online. According to the report I read, some nearly 65,000 words have been removed from the NIV Bible including Jehovah, Calvary, Holy Ghost and omnipotent as a few examples. 65 verses have totally been removed. I started checking out the ones listed as examples and it is TRUE. I looked at several different sites on the internet and found this unholy and discusting thing TRUE.
Here are just three examples:
1) MATTHEW 17:21 has been removed, which from the KJV Bible reads:
21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
The NIV on the internet just skips the verse
(Mat 17:19 NIV) Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, "Why couldn't we drive it out?"
(Mat 17:20 NIV) He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
(Mat 17:21 NIV)
(Mat 17:22 NIV) When they came together in Galilee, he said to them, "The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men.
(Mat 17:23 NIV) They will kill him, and on the third day he will be raised to life." And the disciples were filled with grief.
2) MATTHEW 18:11 has been removed, which from the KJV version reads:
11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
The NIV version on the internet skips this verse completely:
Matthew 18: 10 See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.  [a]
12 What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? 13 And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. 14 In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish.
3) MARK 7:16 has been removed, which from the KJV version reads
16 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
The NIV version skips this verse:
Mark 7: 14 Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. 15 Nothing outside a person can defile them by going into them. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles them.
17 After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable. 18 Are you so dull? he asked. Don't you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them? 19 For it doesn't go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body. (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.)
Other verses you can check out for yourself include: Matthew 23:14, Mark 9:44, 9:46, Luke 17:36, 23:17, John 5:4, Acts 8:37
This is but a few of the 65 verses that have been removed from the NIV version of the Bible.
Do not be deceived. Please care. We need to protect the sacredness and integrity of God's Holy Word, the Bible.
John 10:10 (KJV) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

lol, this is always funny.
This is an internet thing that has been going on since, I don't know, at least 2007... probably much longer.
HC did an official press release years ago, after it first came out, explaining the truth/facts.
Basically, the verses should never have been included in the cannon in the first place.
They were improperly translated texts of scripture based on the manuscripts.
It is why you typically do not find said verses in any accurate translation (ESV/ASV/NASB/etc).
But hey, it is always fun to see this making its way around the internet again... it gets people (hopefully) opening their Bibles to confirm it.
