I wasn't either, per se, altho 1) I believe we are brinking on end days & 2) I believe Satan is behind all deception. But I really was stunned/startled at what was pointed out. I say the Lord's prayer all the time and then add my extras. I don't see it as repetitive, altho I suppose it could be construed that way. My parents had me baptized as an infant. Now that I'm an ole bag, I would like to go thru the ritual again. I don't bring it up as an argument - I can see both sides of that.I am not a conspiratorialist or a KJV only-ist but it makes some startling points
Watch the entire presentation and then let's discuss
Lots of info, a bit repetitive, I was surprised how much is happening so close to where I live. It leaves me with one question, can there be a translation that is easier to read yet still maintains the meaning that is intended?I am not a conspiratorialist or a KJV only-ist but it makes some startling points
Sometimes I think the "easier to read" part is where believers need His wisdom in understanding His words instead of looking to mankind to make an easier to read Bible. As it is, the KJV is easier to read according to one survey report entitled "Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level Indicator" at this link below.Lots of info, a bit repetitive, I was surprised how much is happening so close to where I live.

At 1:13 in the video, it references an 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language that the unicorn as known in that time was a rhinoceros.KJV
God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn.
God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows.
Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?
Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?
He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
Because Rhino or Buffalo was too hard.
- probably the great aurochs or wild bulls which are now extinct. The exact meaning is not known.
And I won't get into baptismo which is full immersion but was made sprinkle because King James was sprinkled and would be offended.
Yes it took until 1828 to even reference it. Even though the animal had been known previously and still the word unicorn remains.At 1:13 in the video, it references an 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language that the unicorn as known in that time was a rhinoceros.
Even though a current dictionary would list unicorn as a mythical winged horse with a horn, it does testify as to how man's dictionary can contain omission that today's readers would think of the unicorn as only the mythical creature.
As per the sprinkling reference, King James would be offended by this in the KJV if he would be offended at all ( which I highly doubt ).
1 Corinthians 1:17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. 18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God....21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
All King James did was approve the Puritans' request for another Bible without the errant marginal notes as found in the 1599 Geneva Bible. Parameters were set, but he was hardly the one that set them.
The point is, Satan is at work and he will even change man's dictionary down through time to make believers as well as people ignorant of the meaning of His words that was so obvious in the time it was being used.Yes it took until 1828 to even reference it.

Some other versions has Lucifer in it; FYI But if you want to make a big deal about it, then I reckon it is just your opinion for why there was a need for an easier to read Bible, but some of those versions still used Lucifer so it couldn't be because of that.This is why updated text from surviving originals is not a bad thing.
And it still keeps the sprinkle baptismo and Lucifer. Not to mention issues with erets and ekballo.
These poor translations causes confusion. 1Co 14:33.
