India's new Bible wears a bindi
When Mary and Joseph discovered a power-hungry king was hunting their son Jesus Christ, they escaped to the safety of Egypt. But before Christianity's first family fled, barefoot Mary slipped into a sari and put a bindi on her forehead, while Joseph tied tight his long loincloth and turban.

At least, that's how their flight is illustrated in a Bible produced for Indians.

Released in India last year by the Roman Catholic Church, the "New Community Bible" became an immediate sensation – and lightning rod for controversy. ...

CV, read my link to The Roman Catholic Bible, and for that matter do you consider The Apocrypha part of the Bible?

This was a --Catholic-- Bible being talked about in the article.

Is the text of the bible itself changed, or are we talking about illustrations - kinda like those in the children’s bible? We have to be diligent in protecting the word of God we have received. Illustrations, on the other hand are not part of the inspired message. We SHOULD exercise discernment. But cultural differences such as names, food, and dress do not detract from the God who is the God of all. Unless these same are an intrinsic part of the the pagan/idol religion.

In the vernacular, this is called 'playing ball'. If the 'word of god' (note lower case) can appeal to everyone, it probably won't fall under censure. I've seen many different portrayals of the Last Supper with many nationalities/races attending our Lord. The mentality seems to be (as with the feminine versions), 'He must be one of us first, or He can't be worth following.'

Customizing the Bible or religion is nothing new for the papal antichrist and his worldly cult.

They always use human contributions to try to make their religion acceptable.

Thats why the Roman Catholics do salvation by works, amongst other mortal products.

The Word of God has never been enough for the papists.

It's one thing to try and make God's Word more readable for the person on the street (Message Bible, etc). It's entirely another to make up stuff to put in the Bible as if it were true or the Word of God... that's either lying at best, or blasphemous at worst, and whoever wrote it is in danger of hellfire.
The Message does a lot of deleting from God's word, as do nearly all the modern versions. Taking away from his word is just as bad as adding to it.

Well, not much disagreement here, I think all Christians consider The Roman Catholic Bible, with its Apocrypha intermixed with real Scriptures evil. Even Bibles not by the Romish Church and includes the Apocrypha, put it in a separate section, q.v., Authorized King James Version. This Indian Bible falls right in line with, A Catholic is a Catholic is a Catholic? and mixing paganism in with Christianity, what little there is left of that in Papist Church, The Church of Rome Steps Into Apostasy.
