Bible edits leave some feeling cross
Easter may sound a little different this year.

It's purely a coincidence, but U.S. Catholics and Protestants alike are being introduced this Easter season to separate "official" updated translations of the Christian Bible, which arrive in the year the magisterial King James Version celebrates its 400th birthday.

While the changes may seem small, they are resounding throughout Christianity, whose many denominations formed or broke off from others over clashing interpretations of God's word.

The two new translations touch on some of the most sensitive issues behind those differences, particularly on the inequality of women in society and on the divinity of Mary and — by extension — the birth of Jesus. ...

Replacing the Word of God by the so called "sensibilities of a 21st century audience" - Is clearly the act of rejecting God whilst pleasing evil hearted sinners and their abominable culture.

Well said! So true!

Okay, other than the usual KJV-Only responses (you guys are just a tiny bit predictable), did anyone wonder about the blasphemous pun in the title? Did some liberal news editor choose this to see if they'd get a rise out of Christians, or did it not occur to anyone at MSNBC that trivializing the cross might possibly not be a good idea and offend someone who actually believes the cross is the means of salvation? I expect it's the latter, and these MSNBC people probably don't know anything about Christianity other than the cross is some kind of jewelry.
I caught the pun, Scott, but refrained from commenting on it because it was too lame to be worthy of any response.

It's true that most see the cross as being Christ's ultimate failure/end when it's actually a picture of how incredibly horrible our sins are in the eyes of God--that such and awful spectacle would be required for full atonement of sinners.

Now let me see if I have this right? The King James bible was completed in 1611. KJO folks say its translators were divinly inspired, in other words that translation is therefore infallible. Now in order for the King James to be infallible, then all previous translations had to be fallible, especially since it differed from all previous translations. And yes, that would include those prior to the 1900s.

My first thought is why would God withhold His infallible word for over 1500 years? It sounds a lot like the Mormon thought that their faith is the restored faith that God hid from the world for 1800+ years. Or that the "words and language", not just the meaning, of the Koran are infallible. In my mind, saying Jesus is Lord is the same as saying Jesus ist der Heiland. That German statement is much older than the KJ. Thy will is the same your will.

Now I personally have never seen a copy of an original manuscript, but I do have the internal witness of the Holy Spirit as to what constitutes truth and what doesn't. And yes, He tells me that Jesus is my Lord and Savior and my salvation came solely through His imputed righteous via my Savior.

I will not debate this KJO issue further, but has anyone ever noticed that Jesus did not quote verbatum from the OT?

""Translators of both new versions said the goal was to strike a balance between sometimes conflicting imperatives: fidelity to the original Greek and Hebrew texts, and readability that honors the sensibilities of a 21st-century audience.""

Real Christians will shun this modern version NIV/TNIV as a fake created by Liberals who wouldn't know faith and doctrine from a bus timetable.

Replacing the Word of God by the so called "sensibilities of a 21st century audience" - Is clearly the act of rejecting God whilst pleasing evil hearted sinners and their abominable culture.

The Liberals and other reprobates who attend "churches(?)" can read these silly comics because they are not of the elect anyway, and are bound for hell.

Christians know by the Holy Spirit's guidance that the King James Bible is the Word of God and therefore the true Word of power.
This pollution of the modern versions began in the 19th century with Westcott and Hort, who wrote a version of the Greek Text which God had not used in His Scripture doctrines and teaching for centuries.
So no surprise that these counterfeit fraudulent and bogus modern versions have been caught out yet again.

Aren't vast corporations, controlling almost all translations marketing dozens of Bibles to us every year, actually decreasing readership, memorization and scholarship?

Doesn't a basket of Bibles bewilder?

Perhaps for this reason alone, we were anti-intellectual -- biblically-speaking -- and the KJV-onlyists were right.
