 Today's New International Version: gender neutral

I was just listening to a discussion on radio program Renewing Your Mind about the gender neutral Today's NIV. Zondervan (publishers who've moved left of center) and the International Bible Society are pushing this as the "new thing."

I don't care much for the NIV to start with, but how have we come to this? Is this not a distortion of God's Word?

Any thoughts or comments?

Zondervan is owned by Ruport Murdoch, who owns the NY Post, a host of tabloids in UK, Sky TV, you name it, under the holding company NewsCorp.

The "church" hasn't figured this out. They never will. In the world and of the world.

Zondervan publishes the Satanic Bible.

Murdoch is one of the world's top producers of pornography. He is a member at Rick Warren's church.

 Very concerned here

Hello,

One of my favorite translations is the Amplified Bible, it is published by Zondervan. Is it suspect?

Comments appreciated.

I would not consider amplified as a translation, rather a paraphrase. I would not use it as my primary source for study of Gods word, but its an excellent addition for reading the word and get a "birds eye" perspective, and as long as you know the bible and what it says in a word for word translation it can be a great blessing, my self have gained much from the NLT.

I have a hard time sometimes to stay with the "plot" in some of the prophets and other ot books, in those books nlt have helped me a lot.

 Re:

Dear hmmhmm,

Thank you! The Amplified Bible is not the only one I have and study. Recently I have been reading a chapter of the Gospel of John before bedtime of out it, though. I have seen no conflicts with the KJV and find the added explanatory words help give a clearer understanding. In no way do I wish to have the 'understanding' colored by incorrect thoughts. Perhaps I will let it lay for a while and ask God to guide me.

Understand what you mean about the Prophets. :) I may check into the NLT (once I look up what that means, of course).

Appreciated you quick reply, Thank you very much,
white stone

 Re:

Well, Zondervan publishes the satanic Bible, really? or maybe another publisher owned by Murdoch's NewsCorp? We must speak the truth in righteousness. You might be correct, but I very much doubt that the good folk at Zondervan, albeit serving Murdoch (willingly or unknowingly), would be prepared to proof read, compile, print, packages etc. the satanic Bible. You need to do a fact check and report back to us. It is quite an allegation you made.

I also don't believe Murdoch is one of the top producers of pornography and I take umbrage to the word "top." His organization no doubt distributes dubious and utterly offensive materials, but who knows if that's more than anyone else, or even close to that. Suffice to know that there is nothing to commend Zondervan's union with NewsCorp, and most regrettable.

I believe Murdoch's first wife is a believer and it was her influence that brought Zondervan to NewsCorp, but since then, he divorced his wife and went off the deep end, so to speak, but I'm not judging the man, other than witholding from buying anyone of his publications, even if it be the NIV or some Christian book.
