NIV Or The Weatherman - Which Is More Accurate?
Which is more accurate,
the word of a meteorologist —
or the Word of God?
A child can answer that one, because weathermen are
— but the Bible is
“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but THE WORD OF OUR
GOD SHALL STAND FOR EVER” (Holy Bible, Isaiah 40:8, KJV).
But is that really true of the NIV (the
New International Version)?
Is it always right?
Christians have been told
that the NIV simply
updated Old English words,
but how many have ever bothered to see if that was really
“PROVE ALL THINGS; hold
fast that which is good” (Holy Bible, 1 Thessalonians 5:21,
Let’s go to the
and do some testing on the NIV.
Look at Proverbs 25:23.
The NIV does not just
update Old English words — it makes the verse to say the
exact opposite of what it originally did.
Look at it.
DRIVETH AWAY RAIN:”
(Holy Bible, Proverbs 25:23, KJV).
“As a north wind
New International Version,
International Bible Society © 1973, 1978, 1984)
Does the north wind
DRIVE AWAY rain — or does it
One of the translations is
A pastor saw these changes in the
NIV, and began to observe the weather to see which was
When it was cloudy and the
north wind began to blow, he observed that it brought
When it was raining, and the wind changed and began to blow
from the north — it would drive the rain
The pastor saw that the King
James Bible was true, but the NIV reading was false.
The NIV did not stand.
When he documented his findings, another pastor read it and
wrote to him sarcastically, “What makes you think that the
weather in the Holy Land is like the weather where you
Here was a very real and serious
Is the Bible only true in
certain parts of the world?
Can you only count on the
Bible’s wisdom if you live in Israel?
The pastor accepted the
challenge, and began to write to missionaries all over the
All who had ever observed
the wind and rain in their country of service, agreed with
the King James Bible — that the north wind
Not one missionary said
that the north wind
rain, like the NIV says.
A missionary in Israel also
agreed with the King James Bible.
The rain there comes from
the southwest winds — not the north wind.
The pastor then did more research
about the weather in the Holy Land.
Rain there normally comes
system out over the Mediterranean Sea.
systems have winds that rotate
So when a
system approaches Israel from the Mediterranean Sea, the
winds are going to be from the southwest.
That matched exactly what
the missionary there said — that winds from the south-west
bring rain — not from the north.
The pastor also observed that among many NIV users, there
seemed to be a strong disdain or contempt for the King James
In fact, he found that some users
of the NIV refer to Christians who use the KJV as members of
the “King James Only Cult.”
Here was another serious
Is it being part of a cult
to believe God’s promise — that He would preserve His Word
pure for every generation?
“The words of the LORD are
pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified
Thou shalt keep them, O
LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for
ever” (Holy Bible, Psalms 12:6-7, KJV).
Once again, the pastor accepted the challenge and looked up
what Proverbs 25:23 says in the NWT, the translation of the
Jehovah’s Witness cult.

So upon testing, it is the NIV
reading that agrees with the cults — not the King James
So the more accurate question
would be, “Are you a part of the NIV cult?”
Will you blindly defend
and follow the NIV?
Will you even bother to
If you are serious about reaching
students, teachers, scientists, meteorologists, and common
folks (who check out what they read), how are you going to
use the NIV?
When they come across
Proverbs 25:23, they are going to say, “See, the Bible is
not a book that you can trust for scientific facts — look at
this fallacy here!
Even the weatherman knows
better than the NIV!”
This verse is just scratching the
Look how many professing
Christians have been deceived into buying the NIV.
Are you one of them?
Are you willing to really
test the NIV and see?
Are you saved?
“Repent ye therefore, and
be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the
times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the
Lord” (Holy Bible, Acts 3:19, KJV).
“Dear Lord Jesus, I do believe
that you are the Son of God; that you are God Almighty in
the flesh, the Creator of heaven and earth.
I do believe that you are
the only Savior; that you died on the cross for me, and gave
your precious blood to pay my sin debt; and then you arose
from the grave the third day.
I do now repent of my
sins, and receive you as my Savior.
Please forgive me, and
save my soul.
Please raise up my life
from sin and shame, and use it now for your glory.
In Jesus’ name I pray,
I just asked
and I desire to now live for Him.
God wants you to
now openly confess Him by
under the water at a good Bible-preaching church, and to
faithfully attend the services there.
