A version of the Bible, what do you think?
I am not sure this is the right section to put this question but the moderators will move it if it's not First I am very glad to be back in touch on this forum. Many things have happened to me but the best thing? I have grown so much closer to the Lord and been much, more active in my walk with Him.
I was in a daily devotion for the last 4 months and the "leader" was reading out of "The Message" version of the bible. I found myself getting upset on occasion because I have been reading NKJV for years. I don't know if the Lord spoke to me or if it is just me but I feel The Message might be an alright version. I read about the man that took the original Greek and wrote the words in "modern" day terms. I think it might be a wonderful thing. I know this could turn into a heated discussion, LOL But I am open to anyone's input.
One of the verses in the bible that comes to my mind is this one:
I Corinthians 2:14-16): 14) “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15) But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16) For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.”
Maybe people trying to make the bible more understandable are wrong in that the Holy Spirit is to teach us.
