I can see you are in favour of the NIV 2011 - instead of the Word of God King James Version, by your post Jim.
I always find it kind of sad when people cannot identify the true Word of God and go for the heretical versions published and translated by Liberal and Co.
But one of the ways which Satan always has worked with sin is, "Did God really say that." (Gen 3:1 para).
The answer is - NIV (any) NO! God did not say that.
The answer is KJV YES! God did say that.
It would appear that messrs Mohler and Patterson are on the right wave length for the truth.
