Why Satan Hates “Only Begotten” and why most Modern Bible Translations use “Only Son” vs “Begotten” in John 3:16
It was while I was reading and using Dr. Hinton’s brilliant work in link below that I realized the reason the modern perverted Bible translations delete “begotten” in John 3:16 KJV is because of the extraordinary significance of the word “begotten” in the context of John 3:16 KJV.
I’ve personally asked Dr. Hinton to comment on my thoughts regarding this subject and I’m excited to see what he has to say. I’ve had the great honor of receiving correspondence from him before.
As Dr. Hinton, I am a firm believer and strict follower of the King James Version Bible only. Please read my studies and notes on why modern Bible versions are frankly SATANIC. I ask you to use Dr. Hinton’s website as a powerful tool to defend the King James Bible and to run away from these CEOs running these 501C3 buildings calling themselves pastors that use these perverted bible translations.

Only Begotten in context of John 3:16 KJV “begotten” μονογενες (adjective) means of course the offspring of the parent who shares the genus of the Father, having the same divine nature. See Notes here from Bible researcher:
The meaning is, the son is the only offspring of the parent, not the only existing person of his kind. The biological metaphor, in which the Son (and only the Son) shares the genus of the Father, conveys the idea that Jesus Christ is a true genetic Son, having the same divine nature or essence as the Father. The meaning of the word μονογενὴς here is not just “only” or “one and only,” as in the RSV, NIV, and ESV translations. John is not saying that the Son is “one of a kind.” He is saying that Christ is the second of a kind, uniquely sharing the genus of the Father because he is the only begotten Son of the Father, as in the KJV, from Bible Researcher The Only Begotten Son (ο μονογενης υιος) (bible-researcher.com)
Note: Although the NASB for some reason uses “Begotten” it strays off in hundreds of other serious blunders: See comment:
Also important is to examine the Oxford English Dictionary description of Begotten:
“Past Participle of Begot. To get, to get usually by effort. To procreate, to generate usually said of the father. the spiritual relationship of God to man in regeneration. To call into being. Generate: Emerson: Poems Thren wks (Bahn) 492: ‘Blood is blood which circulates, life is life which generates. ‘ Every mortal is generated and therefore, that which is not generated is not mortal.
To me personally, it is fascinating to look at the synonyms of begotten in context:
Begotten in context of John 3:16 KJV only begotten (adjective) means in context: EFFICACIOUS – EFFECT
Efficacious: That produces the intended or appropriate effect; effective;
The verb is to effectuate. To carry into effect.
Analogy of actuate. to bring to pass
perform, put into action,” from Latin actus “a doing” (from PIE root *ag- “to drive, draw out or forth, move”). Sense of “put into action, inspire with activity”
See notes below of exhaustive synonyms for effective and effectuate in context.
God actuated his visible image, Jesus Christ, the bodily form of the Godhead (Colossians 1:15, 2:9 KJV) into operation on earth – to produce the intended or appropriate effect which is to bring himself as mortal man to redeem mankind from eternal death.
This was accomplished by the Godhead placing…actuating the visible image of God into operation as God incarnate on earth as Jesus Christ. John 3:16 – 21 KJV.
As we know Jesus was not created by God as his only unique son, as the Gnostics paint and Dr. Hinton has brilliantly pointed out- but rather Jesus Christ existed in the bodily form of the Godhead in eternity past through the present and into the eternal future.
See my study on the appearance of Jesus Christ in the Old Testament
In extreme legal terms: God had to use Begotten Son to legally declare his visible image, that has always existed, officially as MORTAL MAN (the second Adam) to recover what was lost by the first Adam. 1 Corinthians 15:3; 15:45 KJV.
Godhead vs Trinity: See my study on why the Vatican use of “Holy Trinity” “Triune God” is not biblical, but Godhead is. There is a difference. There are NOT 3 separate Gods who are really 1 God as the Trinity teaches. There is only God who is invisible and his visible image is Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is obviously God’s / Jesus’ Christ as the visible image of God’s Spirit that lives within the believer in regeneration.
It seems the Thayer Definition in Thayer Concordance is lacking in its definition of
single of its kind, only
to become, i.e. to come into existence, begin to be, receive being
to become, i.e. to come to pass, happen of events
to arise, appear in history, come upon the stage
of men appearing in public
In conclusion Satan hates “begotten” because it proves Jesus is God incarnate and the purpose in “actuating” Jesus through the Virgin Birth was to activate God’s perfect plan of redemption. In essence the final blow which God announced in Genesis 3:15 KJV Amen! Maranatha!
This is why these modern Bible translations delete the word “begotten” among the thousands of other serious errors they commit.
