One of the most dangerous of false prophets in churches today is dr. James Strong (1822-1894). James Strong (1822-1894), author of Strong’s Concordance, has been elevated to the position of fourth member of the Trinity by many. His corrupt Greek and Hebrew definitions pepper today’s preaching, as if his lexicon was the final and 67th book of the Bible. His liberal definitions are used as quick and weak patches to fill a void in sermons. The space would be better filled by a laborious looking up of all the Bible’s usages of a word.
James Strong of the Corrupt RSV and ASV Committees Strong’s liberal views got him a Committee seat on the corrupt Revised Version (RV) of 1881 with Westcott, Hort, and Vaughan, as well as a seat on the American Standard Version (ASV) committee with Schaff and Unitarian J. Henry Thayer (finally published in 1901). Westcott and Hort sought American Bible critics to join them in their work on the Revised Version. In 1870 the British Committee voted “to invite the cooperation of some American divines” (Matthew Brown Riddle, The Story of the Revised New Testament American Standard Edition, Philadelphia: The Sunday School Times, 1908, p. 11). Strong became “a member of the Old Testament company of revisers” (New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge, New York: Funk and Wagnall’s Company, vol. XI, p. 115). Strong was hand-selected by American RV chairman Philip Schaff, who was also a participant in the new age Parliament of World Religions.
“The Rev. Philip Schaff, D.D., LL.D., Professor of Sacred Literature in The Union Theological Seminary, New York, by invitation of the English New Testament Company prepared a draft of rules for cooperation, and a list of names J STRONG DELUSION 163 of biblical scholars who should probably best represent the different denominations and literary institutions in this movement. The suggestions were submitted to the British Committee and substantially approved” (Introduction by Dr. Schaff to The Revision of the English Version of the New Testament, 1872). Philip Schaff denied the inspiration of the Bible and only chose committeemen who agreed that the Bible had never been inspired; he called ‘inspiration,’ “the moonshine theory of the inerrant apostolic autographs”
Strong's Concordance Definitions The definitions in the Greek and Hebrew Lexicon in the back of Strong's Concordance are often not literal renderings of the Greek or Hebrew word. For example, the Greek word deisidaimonia, used in Acts 17:22, is made up of two words, 'fear' and 'devil' (daimon). The King James correctly interprets 'fearing devils' as being "too superstitious." Propelled by views that 'other' religions are to be respected, the Strong's Concordance and his ASV pretend the word is "very religious." Both the ASV and Strong's Concordance turn a stern warning into a high compliment.
When reading the so-called definitions in Strong's Concordance (in the Greek and Hebrew Lexicons in the back), one is really often just reading Strong's corrupt American Standard Version (and sometimes also his 1881 Revised Version), which is now seen often in versions such as the NIV, NASB, NKJV, ESV, HCSB, NAB, NJB, et cetera. Note the following examples:

Please do not follow the folly and error of man using another book, the Bible is a Christian's sole authority with no place for a second.
