There are a plethora of other changes.  This is just a sampling as whole books have been written on the subject.  The changes in the modern versions are made for a couple of reasons.  One is that they are based off of bad manuscripts that have been defined by the corrupt scholarly community as “older” which they most certainly are not.  The second major reason for the differences between the King James Bible and the modern versions is that the translators themselves have taken liberties in translation.  That is, when they can prove a point by translating literally, they translate literally.  When they can prove a point by translating by ideas instead of literally, they translate by ideas.  The whole process is corrupt.

If you have any questions about why these changes are bad, please ask in the comments below.
