John 3:16 rewritten to fit today's popular beliefs.


"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not have everlasting life in torture, but have everlasting life." (in peace, joy and love)

John 3:16 as written in the King James Version.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

It is very hard to read the Bible for what it says without reading in beliefs that we have been taught all our lives. It is very easy to read right over information in the Bible that is very plain. If you have to explain a verse every time you read it to assure proper understanding then maybe you are trying to force an improper view? The Bible does incorporate the use of imagery and stories to make a point. There are no seven headed beast as written in Revelation. So the beast must stand for something else. Parables are told to tell a hidden meaning. You should never take one literally. Christ told his listeners to pluck out an eye if it should cause you to sin. He was not speaking literally. It is wrong to harm yourself.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

There are many verses that say one thing while we think something else. There is a big problem with many of the newer bible versions and especially paraphrases of the bible. The NIV is a bad paraphrase. It does not even follow it's own Greek text. If one reads the New Living "bible" you would never be able to figure out who the rich man represents in the The Rich Man and Lazarus in Luke 16. They have removed many of the clues by removing, changing and adding meanings found in the Greek. Some words are chosen so as to not violate a copyright in a competing bible version. The biggest problem I see though, and this includes the King James version, is that many times the true meaning of a verse has been hidden or spoiled because of an improperly translated word. Words that are misunderstood include soul, spirit, Jew, Gentile and divorce just to name a few. Use Bible software that will allow you to click on a word and see the Greek or Hebrew definition.

Now go and read your Bible and look for the obvious teaching in each verse. Also look for familiar phrases and words that may indicate a link to another truth. May Yahweh bless you with the understanding of His truth.

Here is a link to an online Bible that a friend put together that will allow you to click and see the definition. He also has it available for download for a small charge.
