    New Bible "version"

    So, I just wrote last week about my concerns with my NIV Bible and I appreciate all of your responses. Then, last night, I come across this from the worldnetdaily.com site.


    Was Jesus Christ
    really a woman?

    New version of Gospels changes gender of 'Son of God' to female

    A publisher is touting a new edition of the Gospels that identifies Christ as a woman named Judith Christ of Nazareth.

    LBI Institute says its version, Judith Christ of Nazareth, The Gospels of the Bible, Corrected to Reflect that Christ Was a Woman, Extracted from Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, takes Thomas Jefferson's edited Gospel one step futher by "correcting" the gender of Christ and God.

    "This long-awaited revised text of the Gospels makes the moral message of Christ more accessible to many, and more illuminating to all," says Billie Shakespeare, vice president for the publisher, in a statement. "It is empowering. We published this new Bible to acknowledge the rise of women in society."

    WND sought comment from the LBI Institute's Stephen Glazier, but he did not return messages.

    The new version, according to the publisher, revises familiar stories, tranforming the "Prodigal Son" into the "Prodigal Daughter" and the "Lord's Prayer" into the "Lady's Prayer."

    A passage compiled from Luke 2, with corresponding verses at the beginning of each sentence, says: "4 And Joseph went to Bethlehem. 5 To be enrolled with Mary, his wife, who was then pregnant. 7 And she brought forth her firstborn child. 21 And her name was chosen to be Judith."

    A passage on the crucifixion, from John 19, says: "17 And She bearing her cross went forth. 18 There they crucified Judith."

    A resurrection passage from Matthew 28 states: "1 Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. 5 But the angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Judith who was crucified." 6 "She is not here; for She is risen."

    The book's foreword says, "The Jefferson Bible is faithfully followed by the present book, with the corrections in the name and gender of Christ, the gender of God, and some of the parables."

    The publisher explains Jefferson used extracts of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John rather than the complete books, in order to tell a "linear, complete, organized story" that emphasizes the moral teachings of Christ.

    The foreword says, "Events in the Gospel that do not relate to the moral teachings of Christ are often omitted. However, the basic narrative of Christ's life, death and resurrection is maintained."

    Okay, if yesterday was puke fest, today is dungfest. Let the simple eat this dung up become bloated and vomit it back out. Any so called preacher that would endorse this , might as well sound the trumpet in the form of breaking wind, for all the effect it will have.

    One wonders if the publisher admires those from the Watchtower publications in promoting these dung infested translations.

    Dear Dave

    If you take a good look around some "evangelical" circles and you see the femininization of "christianity" you will see that "feminizing" obvious male figures in the Bible is not a far fetch exercise at all. Blasphemy it is; blasphemy it will be. But the acts of some in christendumb is blasphemous in and of itself without such a bible version.

    Melted said it well: Praise the Lord; the end is near!

    Judith? The Lady's Prayer? Lol, this is downright comical. I would have expected to hear this from a stand-up comedian, rather than a version of God's Word.
