If The Foundations Be Destroyed Author:Chick Salliby Is your Bible missing important verses and doctrines? If it is an New International Version there's a lot missing! Author Chick Salliby documents the sad truth of how much is left out of this popular modern Bible. If you or someone you care about is using it, you really need to read this book! — For example, did you know that there is only one ve... more »rse in the whole Bible that tells us we need to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ before we are baptized? That verse is Acts 8:37. Why is it missing from the text in the NIV? (Look for yourself).
Or what about Colossians 1:14, where it says "In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins." Why has "through his blood" been removed from the NIV? Do you really believe that you can be saved without the shed blood of Jesus Christ?
The author gives us 155 clear instances of changes and omissions from the Bible, things thyat should be in the NIV but are not. The NIV weakens the deity of Christ, and removes doctrinally important teachings. Verse comparisions between the King James and the NIV cover a wide range of topics, as seen here from the table of contents:
