Ye Blind Guides


Matthew 23:24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

Recently, Zondervan Publishing released its latest version of the NIV which made this translation gender-neutral and politically correct. Zondervan tried this six years ago, but there was resistance, and they shelved it.
Apparently, Zondervan felt that, during the ensuing six years, the resistance weakened, and it was safe enough to release this corrupted translation. There was slight resistance to this latest edition, but not enough to stop Zondervan. New Bible draws critics of gender-neutral language 03/18/11.
This resistance against the gender-neutral NIV brought to my attention that there was no resistance when the NIV altered that the Lord Jesus was "the only begotten Son of God"! This modern translation tampered with the very nature of the Lord Jesus Christ, while the church seemed not to care but fled from the King James Bible to the NIV: yet, there was a stirring about making the NIV gender-neutral! There is a concern how the NIV is translated, but apparently the fact the Lord Jesus being translated as the "only begotten Son of God" is not one of them! Remember, the NIV tampering with the nature of the Lord Jesus is only one of numerous gross changes and deletions in the NIV!
Notice that one of the characteristics of a "blind guide is he cannot discern truth. He swats at the minor things and then swallows a big, huge camel! This is exactly what has happened with the NIV. As I understand the Bible, those defending and promoting this translation are "blind guides": how sad. My heart is grieved over this.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (This is such a gross error because God has many sons: believers in the Lord are His adopted sons of God, Israel is God's son, the angels are called the sons of God, Adam was called the son of God and Solomon sat on the throne over Israel as the son of God! The NIV is making a mockery out of doctrine about the Lord Jesus Christ!)

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
(This is the pure word of God!)
