New "bible" Revision - Go ahead, have sex

The intent of this blog, is not necessarily to be a religious one. Many people out there do not like to read about religion because, to them, it is a very private thing. I cannot separate myself from who I am. I am a Christian first. So if there are people out there willing to vocally denigrate my God, I will defend him with the same amount of fervor. I find it amazing that people are more willing to defend their favorite sport star, celebrity, tv show, politician, than they are defending their creator. I will not fall into that trap.

There is a brand new translation that is coming out with full acceptance from Britan's archbishop of Canterbury. It is called the "ONE" translation. Simply put, the lack of respect given to the word of God, the lack of desire to listen to God's truths as they were originally written, make me sick to my stomach. My bet is that the archbishop and translators of this version of the bible wish to excuse their own bad behavior. So instead of realizing that it is their behavior that needs reform, they decided it was the Bible that needed to change.

Here are a few excerpts from the One translation who's pages are more useful for toilet paper than instruction.

    Mark 1:4

    Authorized version: "John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins."

    New: "John, nicknamed 'The Dipper,' was 'The Voice.' He was in the desert, inviting people to be dipped, to show they were determined to change their ways and wanted to be forgiven."

    Mark 1:10-11

    Authorized version: "And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him. And there came a voice from the heaven saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."

    New: "As he was climbing up the bank again, the sun shone through a gap in the clouds. At the same time a pigeon flew down and perched on him. Jesus took this as a sign that God's spirit was with him. A voice from overhead was heard saying, 'That's my boy! You're doing fine!'"

    Matthew 23:25

    Authorized version: "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!"

    New version: "Take a running jump, Holy Joes, humbugs!"

    Matthew 26:69-70

    Authorized version: "Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, 'Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.' But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest."

    New: "Meanwhile Rocky was still sitting in the courtyard. A woman came up to him and said: 'Haven't I seen you with Jesus, the hero from Galilee?" Rocky shook his head and said: 'I don't know what the hell you're talking about!'"


    1 Corinthians 7:1-2

    KJV: "Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: [It is] good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, [to avoid] fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband."

    New: "Some of you think the best way to cope with sex is for men and women to keep right away from each other. That is more likely to lead to sexual offences. My advice is for everyone to have a regular partner."

    1 Corinthians 7:8-7

    KJV: "I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn."

    New: "If you know you have strong needs, get yourself a partner. Better than being frustrated."
