Michigander's Comments on the KJV21, Making Disciples: The Error of Modern Pietism and Christian News

This painting shows how many of us feel
looking into the fog of modern Lutherdom.

Your Making Disciples booklet was downloaded when you posted about it.  Very good material. 

I visited the KJV21 link to see more comparisons, which did seem to hold up well.  Then I looked for my copy of the KJV21.  Didn't find it.  Then I remembered I gave it away some years ago.  I downloaded the whole Book of Mark they offered in a WORD file (also to other word-processor versions).  I'll be following the lessons using the KJV21 text.  I did that this morning.  There was not enough difference -- one or two words here and there, which were appropriate -- so that only the few changes made it obvious I was reading a different version of the text but not much different.

I might have to get another copy of the KJV21.  They have a deal going:  buy one hard cover copy at $34.95 and get a second free.  They also sell leather-cover versions (two or three colors) for another $10.00 or so and one can mix or match versions as part of the deal.   


The issue of CN that contained all the quotes from The Faith of Jesus came Friday.  A week and a half after the issue's date, I think it was, maybe a longer time.  Then there was his diatribe about your sinking into the abyss of heresy.  That was humorous.  Poor Herman.  There was a favorable reference to your report on the LCA all those years ago as being the right stuff.  Too bad you've lost it.  Poor Herman.

The KJV21 preserves the precision of the KJV and the original Greek text here:

Romans 3:21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets,
22 even the righteousness of God, which is by faith of Jesus Christ, unto all and upon all those who believe. For there is no difference,
23 for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God,
24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
The new NIV adds their "all" to the text, which is not present in Greek or even in the older, obsolete NIV, and they turn the "faith of Jesus" into "faith in Jesus." So by adding and subtracting they invent a new Bible, bit by bit.

WELS pastors call it the Ninevah translation.
They are not allowed to mention Murdoch owning it.
