Darby Version: Title of New Age World Teacher Replaces Christ

The term, "The Christ" is used only 19 times in the KJV. John Nelson Darby used the phrase "the Christ" a total of 131 times in his Darby Versionreplacing the KJV word, Christ with "the Christ" at least 100 times. Take note that John Darby removed the word, "Christ" (which refers to the individual, Jesus of Nazareth) and replaced it with the phrase, "the Christ" which New Agers regard as the office and title of their World Teacher.

Below is a sampling of John Darby's switch from Christ to "the Christ."

 
King James Bible John Darby Version
Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

Matthew 23:10

Neither be called instructors, for one is your instructor, the Christ.

[In this verse, Darby's "the Christ" is a mere instructor (teacher) like "the Christ" of the New Age Movement.]

[Click here to see the 46 New Testament verses where Darby reduced the Lord Jesus Christ to a mere teacher.]

And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

Acts 5:42

And every day, in the temple and in the houses, they ceased not teaching and announcing the glad tidings that Jesus was the Christ.

For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:

 

Romans 9:3

for I have wished, I myself, to be a curse from the Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen, according to flesh;

[Darby had his version say Paul wished to be be "a curse from the Christ" rather than "accursed from Christ." This rearrangement of the verse is an occult marking.]

That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

[The Christ of the bible will gather together in one all things in him]

 Ephesians 1:10

for the administration of the fulness of times; to head up all things in the Christ, the things in the heavens and the things upon the earth; in him,

["The Christ" of the New Age/NWO will indeed "head up" things in the heavens, and upon the earth and these things will be devils and those under the devil's control.]

[The "mystery of the Christ" is an occult term:

"The mystery of the Christ is therefore that of the divine power descending into matter, for the purpose of operating in the lower kingdoms of nature." Quote source: http://www.theosociety.org/pasadena/edge-uml/edge-uml.htm]

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

Ephesians 3:17

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

[Christ is head of the church.]

Ephesians 5:23

for a husband is head of the wife, as also the Christ is head of the assembly. *He* is Saviour of the body.

[What kind of assembly is "the Christ" (the title and office of the New Age World Teacher) qualified to be head of? The General Assembly of the United Nations.]

[Notice that John Darby removed the definite article, "the" before the word, Saviour.]

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

[Christ loved the church]

And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.

But the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patience of the Christ.

For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

Hebrews 3:14

For we are become companions of the Christ if indeed we hold the beginning of the assurance firm to the end;

[The KJV says we are made "partakers of Christ." Darby says "we are become companions of "the Christ."]

Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

Wherefore, leaving the word of the beginning of the Christ, let us go on to what belongs to full growth, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and faith in God,

1 Peter 3:15

but sanctify the Lord the Christ in your hearts, and be always prepared to give an answer to every one that asks you to give an account of the hope that is in you, but with meekness and fear.
The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:

1 Peter 5:1

The elders which are among you I exhort, who am their fellow-elder and witness of the sufferings of the Christ, who also am partaker of the glory about to be revealed:
Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Revelation 20:4

And I saw thrones; and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them; and the souls of those beheaded on account of the testimony of Jesus, and on account of the word of God; and those who had not done homage to the beast nor to his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and hand; and they lived and reigned with the Christ a thousand years:
