New gender-neutral bible planned...
It seems there is a lot of controversy
surrounding the revised bible known as "Today's New International Version," or TNIV. The Council on Bibllical Manhood and Womanhood has released a statement
on what is wrong with a gender-neutral bible translation while admitting there are a few improvements regarding changing the word men
(which isn't specified by Greek text) to all people
, a faithful rendering of the Greek pronoun pas
According to some, this is the work of the devil and feminist groups
everywhere. There have been outright denouncings of the gender-neutral bible
by several Christian groups... but really, what do you think? Is it really the big deal people make it out to be? How can the church teach that man and mankind in the Bible refers to all of God's human creatures and yet, not support a genderless translation???
