Unfortunately the NKJV is far more corrupt than you realize. Please see the Trinitarian Bible Society aticles (tbsbibles.org/page/articles) on this illegitimate bible. The underlying manuscripts are not completely the same.
From the TBS article 'New King James Version: A Critique' by Malcom H. Watts: "In further reading of the NKJVâ€™s â€˜Prefaceâ€™, written by its principal Editor, Dr A. L. Farstad, it becomes clear that he himself is not happy with the Received Text and actually endorses the so-called Majority Text. He writes elsewhere, â€˜Today, scholars agree that the New Testament textual criticism is in a state of ï¬‚ux. Very few scholars favor the Received Text as such, and then often for its historical prestige as the text used by Luther, Calvin, Tyndale and the AV. For about a century most have followed a Critical Text â€¦ which depends heavily upon the Alexandrian type of text. More recently many have abandoned this Critical Text â€¦ for one that is more eclectic. Finally a small number of scholars prefer the Majority Text which is close to the Received Text except in the Revelationâ€™."

I understand what you are saying, yet surely there must be Federal means of justice available! And it must be 'messy' (i.e. loss of life). CHAZ (or CHOP) was an absolute insurrection, not just against the state but also the Federal government. And the Feds did nothing. If I had an insurrection with a group of Christians, you'd see another Waco. Wait, the Feds actually did do something; they'd often be kneeling before BLM rioters. 'No justice. No peace.' is the truth that the protesters have revealed. There will be 'no justice' for the Godly by state or federal means. And in this world there is 'no peace', because these Satanic Leftist groups will make sure of that.
And sorry for the apocalyptic theme, yet I see many Godly people being worn out; day in and day out: Daniel 7:25 'and shall wear out the saints of the most High'
However, we must never act on wrath: Revelation 13:10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

Keep in mind the 501c3 issue and how pastors will fold. Even Ben Shapiro, of Orthodox Judaism, cited 501c3 as a severe problem with how churches are extremely weak and leftist in America. How shameful that a non-Christian is able to see this so clearly; and pastors will openly fight Christians who despise submitting to the state in matters of Mammon.

The ESV is gender-neutral in their notes. Almost always when the word 'brothers' is first used in a Book, there is the lying footnote: 'Or brothers and sisters. The plural Greek word adelphoi (translated "brothers") refers to siblings in a family. In New Testament usage, depending on the context, adelphoi may refer either to men or to both men and women who are siblings (brothers and sisters) in God's family, the church'
As for the entire rest of any said Book with a footnote for 'brothers': 'Or brothers and sisters'
This is a lie, depending on the context; as it could be both genders or just men. And it represents the weakness of Evangelicalism today with it's compromise and forced c

I'll post what I can... It has to do with the National Council of Churches, RSV translators, Congressional testimony and the inclusion of an Anti-Communist listings made in an official Air Reserve Training Manual. (The Congressional material is available to find outside of the book quotes.)
Stormer's "None Dare Call It Treason", (1964) [page 126] 'Richard Arens, staff director of the House Committee on Un-American Activities, testified during the hearings as to the evidence of communist activity in the religious field. He said: "Thus far of the leadership of the National Council of Churches of Christ in America, we have found over 100 persons in leadership capacity with either Communist-front records or records of service to Communist causes. The aggregate affiliations of the leadership, instead of being in the hundreds as first indicated, is now, according to the latest count, into the thousands, and we have yet to complete our check, which would certainly suggest, on the basis of authoritative sources of this committee, that the statement that there is infiltration of fellow travelers in churches and educational institutions is a complete understatement."'
As a KJV only type on that spectrum... I'm just going to clear my throat and say: remember the RSV and Communists from the 40's and 50's? That was decades ago, and we've been compromised and used as merchandise for a looooooooong time. Enjoy your Commie produced Bible, currently called the ESV.
Besides 'flatteries', like the Antichrist figure in Daniel; what exactly will the most powerful man in the world do? Oh, right. He'll go on Twitter and complain. Just like how he is handling the thousands of violent, lawless, godless rioters who are destroying this nation from within.

I don't think the average person gets it, and their sin nature prevents them from the truth. And I have zero confidence that government, voting, or any police force will stop this, as I believe it is judgment from God. (Actually government, voting, and the police/military will only carry this lawlessness further as we have seen.) We've been living in the 'New World Order' for so long that they have had to update the language to be: the 'New Normal'. Just waiting for the son of perdition anytime now.
Thanks for the info. There only seems to be praise for Israeli tech companies when who knows how many seedy ones there are... Especially considering how many Russian Jews are living there with the same greedy and destructive Socialist mentality.
Jim Lincoln wrote: Billy and Franklin Graham certainly has some false beliefs in common
Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you, and thank-you. Where is the truth anymore? How often do Christians forgive and further allow these apostate Christians to function?! Billy Graham was a Universalist apostate and was excessively friendly to the Satanic counterfeit Christianity known as Roman Catholicism. And Franklin is just like him, a son of Belial. Just how many Christians are willing to weaken the Gospel message just to spread it? Revival fanaticism is not Biblical; they are all about numbers and emotions, even allying themselves with evil just to accomplish their vain doctrine.
Millions upon millions have been invested in the Godless Graham Group(TM) for decades and all he is able to do is whine about things on Twitter, have expensive dinners & events with the apostate, and play golf. Meanwhile, seditionists and the godless destroy, burn, lie and murder to victory.
I'd say Graham himself is a seditionist within Christianity through greedy lust of the flesh and an apostate gospel. And he is yet another 'dumb dog':
Isaiah 56:10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.
To compare the white horse rider of Revelation 6 as supposedly being Jesus, to the white horse of Zechariah 6, is to say according to Zec 6:5, that Jesus is one of 'the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth'? So Jesus is just another spirit, amongst other spirits, before the Lord?
This is the major problem I have with the Reform ideas of (as you say 'subjectively assigning') Jesus to be as one of the created angels or even a spirit. Just as they do with Michael in claiming that he is Jesus; which opens many doors of error in assigning God to be what He is not! Calvin absolutely failed me with that, just as with the Geneva Bible so casually mentioning it in their notes. The possibility of blasphemy is outrageous. Where is the fear of the Lord?
Should the Rev 6 white rider be the very same as the Zec 6, then it is a spirit. Plain and simple interpretation.
James Thomas wrote: My last point was cut off. Here it is. I can't see a reason why we would not consult these other portions of Scripture to define the terms or identity of the riders where they are mentioned as opposed to making attempts at subjectively assigning them to things not mentioned.
