2 Corinthians 11:3-4 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

It is important that one know how dangerous it is to teach or preach from any translation out of the Alexandrian texts.   Doing so could lead one into a false hope, a false security, and to fellowship with false companions.

Every single translation that stems from the Alexandrian manuscripts paints Jesus as a man unqualified to die for man’s sins.

For example:  Many of the Alexandrian texts translations make Jesus to be a liar in John 7:8-10.  Some of these translation include the ASV, CEV, DBY, DRA, ESV, GNB, JB, MOF, MRC, NAB, NASB, NASBU, (United Kingdom version of the NASB) NEB, NET, NJB, NLT, NRS, REB, RSV, and the TNiV.

Many remove the deity of Christ.  Many remove the virgin birth, saying a maiden conceived.   All of the translations that stem from the Alexandrian manuscripts point one to a false Christ, one that is sinful.

The translations that stem from the Alexandrian manuscripts are very deceitful, to say the least.  They take portions of the truth, such as the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, and include them in their translations.  Now, while it is true that Christ died, was buried, and rose again, it is also true that that truth becomes a lie when found in the Alexandrian manuscripts translation.

Why is it a lie, you might ask?  Because the Christ those translations are saying that died, was buried, and rose again… is a sinful Christ, as pointed out above.

Now, one may argue that the Gospel is still there; that Jesus did die, was buried, and rose again.  But the fact is, that Jesus they say died for man’s sins cannot have died for man’s sins.  It is utterly impossible for a sinner to purchase another man’s entrance into eternal life in God’s eternal kingdom.

Any time one teaches that Christ died, was buried, and rose again, and they are teaching this out of the Alexandrian texts translations, they are teaching another Jesus.  They have the teaching position because they have been trained to teach from the translation they carry.  They are ready to go to any Scripture verse in that Bible and show the hearer what that Bible says.

Their Jesus that died, was buried, and rose again is the Jesus of that Bible.

When one presenting Christ points to a lying Christ, that one is pointing in the wrong direction.  The one presenting that lying Christ is pointing toward that Christ.  And the one who is unsaved has no idea he or she is being deceived into believing a lie.
