The homemaker has the ultimate career. All other careers exist for one purpose only—and that is to support the ultimate career. Paraphrased from a letter C.

If you want a great defense for the AV Bible and a great source to show the corruption of the new versions. God Bless. Hi Daniel, thanks for your comment. The author is a New Apostolic Reformation believer and has written this based upon their beliefs. The bible is the best selling book in history, and selling can turn to greed , and greed can turn to idolatry, and idolatry can turn us away from God, a lot of these versions and translations are unnecessary and nothing more than people trying to make a buck by bowing down to the golden calf of wealth and power and watering down and perverting the truth along the way, whether intentional or unintentional God knows this is an intense subject, one that should not be taken lightly by anyone truly seeking Gods guidance in their lives, truly seek God Jesus with all your heart, and you will find Him and His Holy Bible!!!!!
Brian Simmons' pseudo-Bible is the latest in a long line of tendential Bible versions. Despite virtual unanimous rejection of Aramaic primacy by scholars, now Simmons appears to have resurrected Lamsa's error. That, on its face, is sufficient to reject "The Passion Translation. Ultimately, Simmons' work should be rejected for the same reason that Lamsa's version and The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures "Jehovah's Witnesses' Bible are rejected bias , with the additional ground that Simmons' personal "revelation" has no place in a work that is marketed to the world.
Despite the obvious problems with The Passion Bible, don't be surprised if many embrace Simmons' version, since it is human nature to be attracted to "some new thing" Acts I definitely agree with Miss Childers that this translation almost doesn't deserve the name, as the mostly straightforward meaning of the underlying text has been augmented with a lot of extra interpretation. You know what it reminds me of?
Movies based on books where artistic license causes the plot to be almost unrecognizable.

I guess this so-called translation isn't quite as bad as that. It's not like the entire plot of the Gospels has been changed. But there's still a lot of artistic license involved, so it's hard to call it a "translation" with a straight face. I also agree that this does not appear to be a work of scholarship. I have a strong suspicion, in fact, that Simmons' source material mostly is just other English translations. He might consult scholarly sources from time to time when there are text-critical issues at play e.
So, I would be curious to know whether my suspicion here is correct. That said, it's not necessarily a bad thing to take an older text and update it with a new perspective and interpretation. Ancient texts can be very dry, and so a little bit of extra flourish helps us get excited about them. Only, let's be open and honest about what we're doing.

Simmons shouldn't pretend that this is just another translation when it's clearly something else. He should have been more transparent, like Eugene Peterson was when he produced his "idiomatic" translation called The Message. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. Alisa, you may want to examine this quote in more depth: "If all of that isn't troubling enough, in the television interview cited above, he claims that Jesus promised to bring him back to heaven and give him a brand new chapter of the gospel of John that has never yet been discovered—John chapter Both he and his interviewer Sid Roth are not interpreting this in the same way you are interpreting this.
Simmons clearly and explicitly says John 22 is a generation of people that, "will not add to Scripture, that is a sealed book Hi Delkin, I have examined the quote in depth. In fact, I watched this entire episode before using it as my source material. It's clear to me that Simmon's was referring to an actual book in the library of heaven, sitting alongside books on science and cures for cancer as per the opening of the show. Simmon's stated: " It would bring, it would make the name of Jesus famous in the world.
Until then, I am taking his words at face value. There's a big difference - he never said he's adding a new chapter, he said he's writing a new "book". In fact, this: "It's clear to me that Simmon's was referring to an actual book in the library of heaven, sitting alongside books on science and cures for cancer as per the opening of the show. Simmon's stated:" Even further challenges the narrative the discernment ministries are given here. Unless he's proposing writing chapters of the Bible including science and cures for cancer, then the very nature of the "book" he believes he will be given is materially different than Scripture.
One more doodle then I'll buzz off. A few minutes ago I said this: "There's a big difference - he never said he's adding a new chapter, he said he's writing a new "book". He said he could "take" the book. He didn't say he would write a literal book by that title with words straight from Heaven. We are both assuming that he means a physical text which he will author - assumptions which could be wrong. But I agree - more specification would be helpful. He changes the meaning of the closed canon. The good news is that he appears to be open to changing his translation based on critical feedback.go to site

I hold teachers to a standard of not misleading others and I know from firsthand conversations that people do not understand by his comments, his statements and his marketing. He has a responsibility to be more clear as one that leads others. My conversation with those inside of other NAR teaching organizations have revealed agreement with my position on his work.
Thanks and God Bless You! I consider it very similar to the Message - have fun reading it, but if you really want to know what a verse says, open your ESV. He explicitly called it a "book" and said it will not conflict with Scripture which is a closed canon. He could clear things up and I'm sure he will.
I've been around charismatics long enough to be But hey, no point debating this thing out - time will tell. If he actually releases a Bible with John 21 included in it, I'll throw the Passion Translation into the trash and call it a heretical work. Hello Delkin, Thanks for your reply. I'm glad to see we agree on his error in calling it a translation. Scripture not only supports, but actually suggests, that we call for accountability from prophets and for those that are teaching when it's impacting people we are discipling.

In my case, this has happened because of how he is distributing and marketing his work. Examples of changing the meaning are widely documented. Additionally - the fact that Mr.
Simmons quickly changes his 'translation' when facing criticism points out the duplicity of calling this either a 'translation' or calling it a 'prophetic' work. Let me explain: - If it changes the meaning, it should not be called a translation. Poor judgment and leadership. Simmons frequent updates and changes of his prophetic download as well as his personal eschatology being inserted into the book of Revelation would be a deadly outcome in terms of OT prophetic requirement, or to be judged as false by NT prophetic requirements 1 Corinthians Either way it has failed: a Biblical based translation test or a Biblical based prophetic test.
This is why i disagree with you. Thank you for altering your position on the previous discussions on the topic of this being a translation. I hope this provides you with further example of how the text discusses judging prophecy. Thanks and God Bless Delkin! The Message 'have fun with it'! I think that sums up the Biblical discernment your comments are showing.
Alisa's article is pretty good, but she is wrong to suggest The Message is better because the writer is a scholar - 'wisdom' as perceived by the world still needs to be tested.
The knowledge of the Pharisees etc should be plenty enough warning of that. While 'having fun' with the Message, maybe we should ask ourselves why he removes homosexuality from the list of sins that Paul will rob people of eternity with God and replaces it with environmental crimes! OK, he's paraphrasing the entire Bible have to say it's slightly weird paraphrasing considering the Message is often longer than the scripture and actually makes the Lord's Prayer less clear, adds bits for no apparent reason than to include the satanic phrase 'As above, so below' , but CHANGING the Word of God to remove things and add things that aren't even slightly in the text is surely not something you want to do.
It also shows the author's brazen happiness in putting words into God's mouth. A generation of Christians will be mislead because of this nonsense. I respect the commitment to education of theological scholars and I join in holding sacred that which is holy. However, I couldn't help but look at this review in light of the way scholars of the day critiqued Jesus and charged him with blasphemy before they murdered him; or how William Tyndale translated our Bible from original language to English, but was strangled and burned at the stake because of it.
