Warnings of ‘The Message’ Bible translation
A Watchman warning. Stay away from “The Message” Bible translation (and others alike.) It’s is not the Word of God. It is at best a Christian book, or a “loose paraphrase” of the Bible. It’s a bi-product of the purpose driven, postmodern, politically correct, Biblically incorrect, emerging church movement.
Where supposed to water down the saints with the Word, not water down the Word. Below is a compilation of 7 videos on “The Message” Bible mis-translation.
“I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” 2nd Tim 4:1-5
“Divisions and separations are most objectionable in religion. They weaken the cause of true Christianity. But before we blame people for them, we must be careful that we lay the blame where it is deserved. False doctrine and heresy are even worse than schism. If people separate themselves from teaching that is positively false and unscriptural, they ought to be praised rather than reproved. In such cases separation is a virtue and not a sin.” – JC Ryle,
