    In the KJV , in Acts 10:47 the word "water" in the verse comes before the word "baptized". but in the NIV , the word "water" comes second within the verse, and the word "baptized" comes first.

    Did you not notice this ?

    That is because, in order for the NIV to changed the wording, they had to change as to where these words would come within this verse, thus changing the meaning of this verse !

    Does a horse fly, fly ?

    Or

    Does a fly, fly on a horse ?

    Does a cow chew a cud ?

    Or

    Does a cud get chewed by a cow ?

    Does snow fall ?

    Or

    Does snow come down as a shower ?

    ---------------------------

    Can anyone fully restrain water - that these should be baptized as we ?

    Or

    Can anyone deny that these should be baptized with water ?
