The Conservative Bible Project

Have you heard the news about the conservative bible project?

The “Ten Guidleines” are as follows:

1.Framework against Liberal Bias:
providing a strong framework that enables a thought-for-thought translation
without corruption by liberal bias
2.Not Emasculated: avoiding unisex, “gender inclusive” language, and other
modern emasculation of Christianity
3.Not Dumbed Down: not dumbing down the reading level, or diluting the
intellectual force and logic of Christianity; the NIV is written at only the 7th
grade level
4.Utilize Powerful Conservative Terms: using powerful new conservative
terms as they develop; defective translations use the word “comrade” three
times as often as “volunteer”; similarly, updating words which have a change in
meaning, such as “word”, “peace”, and “miracle”
5.Combat Harmful Addiction:
combating addiction by using modern terms for it, such as “gamble” rather than
“cast lots”; using modern political terms, such as “register” rather than
“enroll” for the census
6.Accept the Logic of Hell: applying logic with its full force and effect,
as in not denying or downplaying the very real existence of Hell or the Devil.
7.Express Free Market Parables; explaining the numerous economic parables
with their full free-market meaning
8.Exclude Later-Inserted Liberal Passages: excluding the later-inserted
liberal passages that are not authentic, such as the adulteress story
9.Credit Open-Mindedness of Disciples: crediting open-mindedness, often
found in youngsters like the eyewitnesses Mark and John, the authors of two of
the Gospels
10.Prefer Conciseness over Liberal Wordiness: preferring conciseness to the
liberal style of high word-to-substance ratio; avoid compound negatives and
unnecessary ambiguities

The one that bothers me the most is number 7… “Express Free Market Parables; explaining the numerous economic parables with their full free-market meaning”


I looked over what they have so far, and as a student of biblical languages I’m quite disturbed by this you can read it HERE

I recomend you read the article I mentioned at the top of this post… What do you think about this?
