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

WELS Scandal - Their Brug "Translation" - Evidence of Plagiarism

 Warning - Plagiarism Ahead.
Mequon's copy and paste training bites them in the Book.

Some WELS members already realize this - their precious Evangelical Heritage Version is marred by obvious plagiarism.

Examples will be posted later. Doubtless Herman Otten will rave about how good this is, though nothing compared to his own Beck Bible - now on sale at Christian News.

I was discussing this issue with a member last night. I grew up with the KJV and have no problems with it. I enjoy some of the antique language and seldom have problems. He appreciates the KJV21's devotion to precision translation, so that edition has improved the word order of the old KJV and replaced some words we never use anymore.

If everyone in the same room used his favorite edition of the King James family of Bibles - and they are legion - the variations would be slight and the Greek text foundation would be the same. The King James Bibles are derived from William Tyndale and Martin Luther. The modern translations all rely on the magical Nestle-Aland Tischendorf fantasy, so they change the text on a whim, based on their invented rules.

Old Nick realizes he can accomplish more with a bad translation than with a good Church Growth program, so the rot continues. Tim Glende should be proud of his Uncle John Brug for exemplifying the family tradition, illustrated below.
