What about the Geneva Bible? Is it John Calvin Contaminated?

Corrupted Bibles: the Geneva, NKJV, & Fake KJB’s by Pastor Sam Adams


The Geneva Bible, with the commentary of John Calvin, is simply a trap to seduce the unsuspecting to be indoctrinated with the doctrines of devils that is the system of calvinism. Beware. Like any cult, the unspoken rule is that the doctrines of John Calvin are superior to the Bible itself. This is how it works with the cult of calvinism. There’s no such thing as an honest student of Holy Scripture who is a calvinist.

As you will hear in the podcast above, among many other errors, the Geneva Bible changes “Repent” to “amend” which would be works salvation. Metaneo, metanoia are the Greek words for “repentance” and such is essential for salvation (Luke 13:3, 5, etc.).

“I bought my husband Tom one a Geneva Bible a few years ago and had no idea! It is now in the garbage. The fact they changed the word Repentance is enough. But also John Calvin is involved. So these are two reasons it belongs in the garbage. Thanks for this post.” Karen Cochran

The Geneva Bible Exposed: The Geneva Bible was poisoned by “the pope of Geneva” himself, John Calvin. The Geneva Bible had to be superseded due to being calvinistically corrupted.

Calvinist Snakes are the ones pushing the Geneva Bible and that due to John Calvin’s excessive marginal notes in the Geneva Bible which seduce the reader into the heretical system of Calvinism.

Beware of those who do not understand that God is sovereign, that “the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men” (Daniel 4:32). If the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, that means He’s active in the affairs of mankind – always has been and always will be because He “is love” (1 John 4:8, 16). The LORD Himself was in charge of the translation of His Word into English, as He promised to preserve it to all generations. This is a cornerstone truth in understanding the real English Bible vs the counterfeits. The LORD used God fearing men throughout HIS-story to make sure all generations had His written Word. THIS is a cornerstone truth that if not remembered, could lead to one being deceived. We call them “Bible agnostics” because they believe God exists and yet they do NOT believe He has been active in the affairs of men. Heresy.

“Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” Psalms 121:4

GOD has never, nor ever will take His holy off of HIS-story.

Bible Agnostics Exposed

Divinely Inspired and Preserved

Many things establish that the King James Bible is the preserved Word of God for the English speaking peoples. Here’s one of those indicators.

“The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” Psalms 12:6-7

See the fulfillment of this prophecy?

1. Tyndale Bible (1525)
2. Coverdale Bible (1535)
3. Matthews Bible (1537)
4. Great Bible (1538)
5. Geneva Bible (1560)
6. Bishop’s Bible (1568)
7. King James Bible (1611)

Read this again:

Psalms 12:6 – 7
6 The words of the LORD [are] pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

One source notes:

“James’s disdain stemmed from the Geneva Bible’s marginal notes, which, like whispers in the corridors of power, subtly undermined royal authority. These annotations, laced with Puritan ideology, posed a threat to James’s vision of a unified, monarch-led Church of England.”

Of the Geneva Bible, one source admits:

The Geneva Bible was one of impeccable Reformation credentials. The main translator, William Whittingham, was even a brother-in-law to Calvin himself. Produced in Geneva by Reformers with the help of the best learning of the Reformed Churches, its marginal comments bore the hallmark of unflinching adherence to orthodox doctrine and readiness to suffer in the face of persecution.”

Any honest Bible believer understands that reformed theology/Calvinism is incalculably heretical and so such a student of Holy Scripture understands immediately that the Geneva Bible is errant and why God didn’t allow it to take root and kept His promise to purify His Word in our language “seven times.

Reformed Theology is Calvinism

Famous modern preachers who espoused this cancerous system of theology include Paul Washer, Vodie Bauchum, John MacArthur, John Piper, etc.. Reformed theology proponents push the writings of sinful men instead of God’s Word. They insist upon telling their prey to read and study church history, and follow frauds like John Calvin and other reformers, instead of exhorting them to get into God’s Word for themselves with the Holy Spirit as the divine Teacher. The Holy Spirit through Paul instructed Timothy, and all disciples today to:

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15

There’s a big push today by the reformed, Calvinist false teachers to get people to get the Geneva Bible where the margins are stacked full of poisonous heresy from John Calvin, the murderous heretic who reigned as a tyrant in GENEVA Switzerland before dying and going to Hell. But the Geneva Bible is just another fraud. There were divine reasons it was superseded by the vastly superior King James Bible.

There’s a video that circulates that pretends to show that the KJB is in error because it defines Ephesians 6:12 as spiritual warfare whereas the Geneva Bible teaches that verse to mean that we are to war against civil government. Here’s my reply to such:

This is a deception. Beware. Be not deceived. Cease being so gullible to believe every video of someone ranting. First off, the whole text, passage of Ephesians 6:10-18 is clearly, overwhelmingly speaking of SPIRITUAL warfare, not combatting the civil government, which Christ, His apostles, and early church never did. Read it afresh for the actual context. Just because he rants doesn’t make what he’s saying true. this information is actually in error because Jesus and His apostles never resisted the corrupt Roman Government of their time nor did they teach others to rebel against the government. Keep in mind that governments, civil governments are ordained of God although many times they become corrupt. Also keep in mind that John Calvin was a lawless murderous man and he wanted nothing to do with accountability to anyone including governments. Check out Romans 13 and 1 Peter 2:13-14 about the command of God to obey government servants who are in place to protect and provide a fair monetary system.

With this truth in mind, it should be easy to understand why the LORD had the King James Bible translators correct this obvious error in the Geneva Bible.
