Conservative Bible Project

Conservapedia finds the Bible too liberal for their tastes:

Liberal bias has become the single biggest distortion in modern Bible translations. There are three sources of errors in conveying biblical meaning:

* lack of precision in the original language, such as terms underdeveloped to convey new concepts of Christianity
* lack of precision in modern language
* translation bias in converting the original language to the modern one.

Of these three sources of errors, the last introduces the largest error, and the biggest component of that error is liberal bias. Large reductions in this error can be attained simply by retranslating the KJV into modern English.

  1. There was a similar discussion in Iceland a couple of years ago concerning the newest translation of the Bible. In the new one they e.g. changed the word „sword“ to „disunity“ in Matt 10:34 and also changed all the masculine words to neuter (when appropriate) to up the equality.

    As you would expect, this was met with support from the liberal side of christianity and appallment from the conservative.

    This would be a good thing if the state supported church wasn´t always hammering it in that christianity is the source for morality.

  2. We all know that The Bible is the inerrant word of God. There may be contradictions within and variations between versions but it is Gods Word. He, being omniscient and all powerful, has absolute control over the propagation of His Word. He would never allow any errors to creep into the most important and influential book in the entire 6000 years of human history. Therefore, each different text must be the product of divine inspiration. Case closed.

  3. What a fantastic website, I found out that the theory of relativity is utter rubbish but does prove that the earth is 6000 years old but the universe looks older.

  4. The new testament is quite liberal. If they don’t like it, maybe they can just stick with the old testament. Hmm, which one has been through the most revisions already? Maybe the older one?
