  1. That’s it. Joel i can’t take any more!

    Hiding out in a cave until Jesus returns, is sounding pretty good right now.

      I figured that since they hated the Liberal Left Wing machine known as Wikipedia, why not use it?

      Yep – these Schlaflys are making the rounds, aren’t they? And for those who think that the mother is just a kind hearted woman, well, look at her son.

      If y’all get a chance, in a well lit room, in the middle of a day, and never alone, read some of their ‘translation.’

  3. Good thing I am getting the Hebrew bible soon huh. So, they really think they can do this huh. Once again, man in his stupidity steps up just so God can prove him wrong. Thanks for the info Joel. Keep us up to date on its progress and maybe it will disappear or become silent like may others from the past.

  4. WTF? So "government", absent any other adjectives or qualifiers, is a liberal term??? REALLY??Wow. I love how fast and loose "Christians" get to play with the only document that gives even the most remote drop of credence to their heinous beliefs.Conservative Bible=EPIC FAIL

  5. If you believe in underwears, does that mean you have Hanes-ous beliefs? Just wunnerin'.Seriously, a "Conservative" Bible??? Why?? Because there wasn't enough hatred of women, rape/incest, cannibalism, "mountain[s] of foreskins", slavery and infanticide?? Just seems redundant. But I'm not the one cashing the checks on this hackjob.

  6. Christ was born in Bethleham, Obama in Hawaii and I in Baton Rouge. The Conservative bible is a reaction, stupidly, against those who actually read those 'liberal parts' about helping the poor, the widows, the oppressed. Further, you cannot look at the bible as a 'flat document' but must look it through the lens of historical development – either spiritually, theologically, or in societal evolution.

  7. Dude, when I present my Driver's License at the airport, they would arrest my sorry ass if I told them that they couldn't view my expired ID as "a flat document" and should "look at it through the lens of historical development–either spiritually, theologically, or in societal evolution".My point is that we require more concrete provenance of documents on a daily basis than is required of the Bible in any of its many forms. This is a massive failure of common sense among the faithful. But these are people who believe in zombie Jesus….

  8. I just love that people put faith in a single document that they have NO CLUE how it came about, but it takes like 3 forms of I.D. to get cable installed. That's some funny crap right there…

  9. But Robert, we are not talking about a driver's license. We are not even talking about one document. We are talking about at least 66 various documents for starters. Second, we are speaking about three of four radical changes within that document. We have pre-Moses, Moses to Samuel/David, David to Christ, and Christ onward. We have to look at the development of 2000 years plus of culture contained with the bible and understand the changing viewpoints found therein. Oh, and I do have a clue on how it came about.

  10. I wonder if Andy is in touch with his brother. Did Phyllis disown John because he is gay? She had six kids and the son was outed in 1992. She refuses to speak about him.

    Most of the contributors at Conservapedia are home schooled kids.
    I assume this ‘bibile’ will be US centric. Stephen Colbert called Andy’s project Wikiality.

      I believe that you are correct on all accounts, but not sure about the homeschooled kids factoid.

    This is absolutely amazing…my flabbers are ghasted by this. If it wasn’t a serious attempt by these folks it would sound like an article out of “The Onion.”

    Blessings,

      Fr. Steve, I had to check Poe’s law :)

      I really thought it was a joke until I found Andy S.’s name attached.

      I would even rather the ESV than what these people will turn out.

          1. I was being somewhat tongue in cheek, but the old Living Bible (parahrase) touched many souls for Christ! I still have a copy. Check out the Psalms there (if ya can find one?) Sure it is aweful in places, but God still used it!

            Fr. Robert, I remember it clearly, with it’s padded green cover. My mother had one for a long time. I really don’t know where it ended up at.


  12. Strange is it not, that the enemy of God attacks the Word of God…from all sides, both conservative (so-called), and liberal (so-called). But God’s Word still Triumphs evil! (Psalm 119: 11) We must make it personal (interior).

  13. You know … the raising of Lazarus is only included in one of the Gospels, too. I guess that didn’t really happen, either.

    I might wander by and look at some of this stuff sometime, but I sort of think not. I can’t imagine that it’s going to make me anything but angry, and I probably don’t need to be that angry.

      No one needs to be that angry, Wickle

  14. I remember the old Living Bible well, mom had one, the green one with the padded cover like Joel describes. You guys inspired me to take this up as well. I have posted on this on my site. I mention the dialogue here and have had a bit of fun with my post. I don’t think it as studious as much of what is here but I did have fun with it. The link is here:

    I don’t think that anyone is actually doing this…

    Yet. 😉

    But I think that the website author is coming up with some ideas, should it be done…

      But, he has already as some ‘translation’ completed. I don’t think he will get anywhere with it, that’s for sure.
