But sadly the Protestant church is not entirely sinless in this regard either and so we must condemn all who have or would use the name of our God to justify their murder of those who would not fall into conformity with their alleged faith system.

This is an erroneous assumption! It is well known for example that the Septuagint is an "inferior" translation, a fact known for 2000 years.
God has used the KJV for four centuries to build His church and teach His people.
Whereas modern versions have input from anglican Liberal papist sympathising heretics.
"The character of God's words is not found in the "so-called" Septuagint (LXX). God's words are verbally and plenarily inerrant, infallible, inspired, preserved, and precise (specific). Their precision is to the jot and tittle, the smallest parts of the Hebrew letters [Mat. 5:17-18]. The LXX is not precise (specific) by any stretch of the imagination, as this document will demonstrate."

Its the NASB which removes the deity of Christ.
Matt 6:33 KJV "But seek ye first the KINGDOM OF GOD, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." NASB "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you."
Matt 16:20 KJV "Then charged He his disciples that they should tell no man that He was Jesus the Christ." NASB "Then He warned the disciples that they should tell no one that He was the Christ." NASB leaves out "Jesus," as it does in numerous verses.
John 1:27 KJV "He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose." NASB ""It is He who comes after me, the thong of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie."" NASB leaves out "preferred before me."
John 9:35 KJV "Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?" NASB "Jesus heard that they had put him out; and finding him, He said, "Do you believe in the Son of Man?"" NASB changes 'Dost thou believe on the Son of God?' to 'Do you believe in the Son of Man?' It does away with Christ's' divinity.
