A More Just Language?

Fifty-two schol­ars have pro­duced a new trans­la­tion (I use the term loose­ly) of the Bible which uses a sup­pos­ed­ly “more just lan­guage.” Jesus is not referred to as Lord nor as the Son of God; rather, He is the child of “our Father and Moth­er who are in heav­en.” Pos­i­tive fig­ures are neutered, yet Satan is still referred to as a male. The changes through­out the trans­la­tion are sup­posed to afford more jus­tice to fem­i­nists and homo­sex­u­als while mak­ing the Word of God more acces­si­ble. How fool­ish are the minds of men who would sup­pose God’s exalt­ed Word should be con­formed to human­ist thought. And how dire are their fates (Rev­e­la­tion 22:18,19).
