Some important omissions of repentance from modern bibles.

I am just going to do  a shortish post about repentance. Not the actual meaning of it, but how an awful lot of modern versions of the bible have omitted many references to it.
The King James Version is down the bottom so you can compare it to how many times it has been omitted in some of the modern versions.

Notice the difference in the amount of times words relating to repent have been deleted from these versions of the bible? (Not the King James)
If you are reading or using any of these versions, I ask you to pray about it and see where the Holy Spirit leads you. There is a reason the words to do with repentance have been taken out of the bible. It’s to spread a false gospel and to get believers to believe that repentance isn’t as important as it is, and it IS important because without true repentance, there is no salvation.
“I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” Luke 13:3,5

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.” 2 Peter 2:1

“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:8,9
