And God Said
When the Committee on Bible Translation released an updated version of the world’s most popular Bible in 2005, controversy ensued. Changing a beloved text can be dangerous. So the committee announced plans recently to scrap the 2005 version and start anew. Committee Chairman Doug Moo talks about altering what some believe is God's word.

There are already too many angels standing on the head of that pin, or so it would seem to the faithful...
Heretic! Angels do not stand, they dance! So sayeth the Lord!
Oh noes they're translating the Bible! -- again.
How ridiculous. As though there are not enough Holey Babbles in the World today. I just tore up the current edition of the NIV Study Bible. It is a disgusting read. Now they want to do another translation to keep up with modern English. What will they do with Genesis 1:9

and God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. 10God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.

That will become:

And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. 10God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was COOL.

Bloody Hell.
More likely, "kewl."

Has everyone seen that spoof on what the 10 commandments would look like if god had texted them?
"God's Word" The utter delusion of just two simple words strung together.

This man-made premise is the root of it all. How easy was it to write down some ancient oral traditions, copy some legend of a savior, translate it several times and slap "God's Word" on it?

Two simple words that has spawned so much lunacy.

We need to emphasize it always was "Man's Word".
My question is: "why couldn't God get it right the first time?"
Good question Jack. He got the world wrong the first time and then destroyed it by a flood. I mean, what's the point of being omnipotent and perfect if you can't do it right the first time?
