1Co 12:3 (KJV1611 Edition): Wherefore I giue you to vnderstand, that no man speaking by the spirit of God, calleth Iesus accursed: and that no man can say that Iesus is the Lord, but by the holy Ghost. The New King James Version 1 Corinthians 12:3 (nKJV = The New King James Version, or nKJV = New King James Version): Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit. Does the reading of the nKJV in 1 Cor 12:3 change the diety of Jesus? This statement just isn't true. This word change does NOT deny the diety of Christ. People who want to deny the diety of Christ can do so (and historically did) right from the KJV.
