New Bible translation promotes fornication
WorldNetDaily: New Bible translation promotes fornication:
"'Instead of condemning fornicators, adulterers and 'abusers of themselves with mankind',' says Ruth Gledhill, the London Times religious affairs correspondent, 'the new version of his first letter to Corinth has St. Paul advising Christians not to go without sex for too long in case they get 'frustrated.''"
Well yeah, baby.
"The One organization that produced the new Bible translation is dedicated to "establish[ing] peace, justice, dignity and rights for all." It is also focused on "sustainable use of the earth's resources," challenging "oppression, injustice, exclusion and discrimination" as well as accepting "one another, valuing their diversity and experience."
"Here's how Williams, the top Anglican archbishop, describes the new Bible: "Instead of being taken into a specialized religious frame of reference – as happens even with the most conscientious of formal modern translations – and being given a gospel addressed to specialized concerns … we have here a vehicle for thinking and worshipping that is fully earthed, recognizably about our humanity." "
" "The new version, which Dr. Williams says he hopes will spread 'in epidemic profusion through religious and irreligious alike', turns St. Paul's strictures against fornication on their head," adds the Times."
I like this man. TGIF.
