New Emergent Bible Translation: The Voice

Listen to Pastor Jim McClarty's comments on the new The Voice paraphrase from Thomas Nelson publishing. Click here and listen to the Sunday message titled You Must Be Born Again.

Could this version be more dangerous than The Message paraphrase?

"Featured writers, scholars, artists and musicians for The Voice include the president of Ecclesia Bible Society and internationally acclaimed speaker and pastor Chris Seay (project founder); Blue Like Jazz author Donald Miller; internationally known speaker and author of over 12 highly acclaimed books Brian McLaren; theologian, author, and futurist Leonard Sweet; and nationally renowned author Lauren Winner. The translation and literary style of The Voice have been checked by biblical reviewers, theological scholars and a biblical archeologist, among others." link

I first heard the news about "The Voice" on a radio program called Fighting for the Faith. It's incredible, the Emergent are making the transition from just a "movement" to a Cult. They're probably will deceive many because of Bible illiteracy. Now more than ever our Reformed Voices must be heard. Good message last Sunday Pastor Jim. Allow me the liberty to call you that because I listen Weekly and look forward to Sundays and Wednesdays. Best Wishes from Brooklyn, NY and have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.

Hello Orlando. Thanks for your very kind words. It's good to know you're out there listening and I did indeed have a dandy Thanksgiving. I spent the better part of the week with my mom down in Tuscaloosa. It was a wonderful time. I trust you also had a good Thanksgiving Day.

I have a friend who likes to say, "Sometimes words are the greatest gifts." Your words prove the truth of that statement.
