I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

The Die Is Cast:
WELS Will Adopt and Promote the NNIV



WELS had an ashram at Mequon, inviting various people to discuss how soon they would adopt the NNIV. I was not invited, so I do not know any details.

Wendland and the other synod-minds want their feminist-Universalist Bible, and the NNIV delivers. More importantly, the NNIV jettisons the concept of translating God's Word. From now on the Murdoch Bible will be an exercise in creative writing and free association.

This development is not all bad. The betrayals began in earnest during the 1960s and 1970s. They were well established with Valleskey as the seminary president. The NNIV allows people to look at Wisconsin Sect for what it is.

I can predict this, because it has been already happened with ELCA. The speed of the decline will leave people gasping. The enablers of today will be very sorry to see the radicals take it farther and faster. They will say like the ELCA founders do now, "I never would have voted for this if I had known."
