Demons, Mental Illnesses, Bad Youtube Videos and Dissing the NLT

Okay, maybe my rile this morning is up because I’ve ran into two KJV-Only bloggers who are bashing the NLT (and every other version, mind you), but when I read this garbage, my rile just boiled over. In a post entitled, ‘New Bibles are not of God‘ the author writes,

All of these four listed above have at the very least carnal translations made for and from the flesh of man and more accurately lack the Spirit of God upon them and the words. These are evil bibles the works of the flesh but not as bad as the non-gender specific bibles and the gay bibles that are now available.

It seemed that almost all of the bibles copyrighted 1996 and forward (2010) were not of God, each lacked the anointing of the Living God upon the words.

He listed the NLT (1996), NASB, NIV and I guess the TNIV. I really don’t have the time to go into the many errors here, I mean, how can I without his encapsulating argument, which centers on his assumption that no one would believe him because they have the ‘spirit of delusion.’

Then, while visiting his youtube site – really, this freedom of speech thing is getting out of hand – I found this video which contributes personality disorders to demons:

And then, take a gander as this ‘vision for India’.

    If you are going to quote someone at least get it right……that shows satan right off the bat. He wrote and I quote,”The new translations of the NIV (New International Version): the archaeological and the new translation copy write 2009 and the New Living Translation copy write 1996. I quit using the new printed version of the New American Standard Bible also. All of these four listed above have at the very least carnal translations made for and from the flesh of man and more accurately lack the Spirit of God upon them and the words.”
    He is not by any means bashing these Bibles. He IS stating that THESE TRANSLATIONS are in HIS OPINION lacking the Spirit of God upon the words of them. There is a difference there. We own many different Bibles from the NIV to the KJV and all inbetween, we are not partial to one or the other. In fact, the Lord set him free using an NIV Bible in which he still uses today! There are some that are translated by man that are just that, translated by man. Before you start bashing anyone for their opinions, or what YOU think they are….maybe you ought to spend a little time in the Word yourself….something you seem to be lacking. Just my opinion. Oh, and thank you for getting the word out on MPD by posting that video….we really appreciate it! 🙂

  2. Sarrah, when someone writes 'These are evil bibles the works of the flesh',, what do you consider that?

    That is a wee bit bashing, in my opinion. All bibles are translated by 'man' Sarrah. Sorry, no magical inspiration working in the hands of translators.

    No, not really getting the word out about MPD – just the damage you guys are doing to those with it.

  3. Y'all are missing the whole point. He isn't bashing Bibles. What he was saying is that those certain ones, IN HIS OPINION didn't have the anointing of the Lord on them. What is bashing about that? If someone puts himself as a Pastor of a church…does that make them one really? No, for anyone can PUT themselves into that position…but if they are not called of God to be there, than they are just man putting themselves in a position that he wants to be in. God doesn't call the qualified but qualifies the called. Same thing with the Bibles, if the Lords anointing is not upon them, then it just isn't there. You can't make it so. That is his opinion to make. He will have to take that up with the Lord. Not every Bible has the Lords anointing and if you think it does, then you are deceived. Am I saying that just the ones we read have the Lord's anointing? No. It is something between you and the Lord. It is something that you will feel in your spirit. Most people don't even pay enough attention to their Bibles to even notice a difference. To them, it is just that, a Bible.
    And how would you know about MPD? Do you work with them? Have thousands of hours of hands on experience with them to know if damage is being done? The damage being done is by people not getting the TRUTH out. What is out there now is all a bunch of lies. Satan is the author of lies and well, to be frank, most will follow a lie before they follow the truth because it “feels” better or “looks” better. That is why most of them don't get free. Because of people who think like you.

  4. Sarra, the man called the bibles 'evil', etc…. Pretty sure that is 'bashing.'

    First, show me the role of 'translator' mentioned in the bible and the notion that the 'anointing of the Lord' can be on a translation. If you cannot, I suggest you abandon your position. It is ill-founded and silly.

    Speaking of lies…

    But, I digress. I have dealt with MPD before, and it is not 'satan', but a physical problem. What you are doing is harming the individuals with something little more than witch doctoring.

  5. Soooooo… All “new” translations of the Bible are evil? I hope one or more of your personalities can read Greek, Hebrew, and the other ancient languages of the “original” Bible. Otherwise, how could we read and understand the text? True translation is simply taking the words of one language and converting them to the most similar possible words in another language. How is this evil? And how arbitrarily capricious it is to say that one translation is superior than another based only on the whims of an admittedly addled mind.

    Even as someone who thinks the entirety of the Bible is nonsense, your position is sillier still.

    I'm a longtime advocate for people with disabilities, and have noted the uncanny link between prevalence of mental illness and propensity to profess strong religious (often Christian) faith. My favorite instance was after a lecture to the state's National Alliance of the Mentally Ill (NAMI) Conference when I was approached by a gentleman who informed me that he appreciated my presentation and wanted to know what state-funded resources were available for him to start a Christian ministry. Specifically, he shared, he believed that the Lord was calling him to–and I quote–“minister to women…sexually…” With the straightest of faces, I suggested he address that issue with his vocational rehabilitation counselor and thanked him for his compliment on my talk.
