Satan’s bible

Satan’s bible

That’s the only way to describe it. A new “Translation” of the Bible doesn’t translate the Bible so much as completely distort it. For instance, St. Paul’s advice that it would best for men and women to marry, if they cannot remain chaste, is replaced with the completely contradictory statement that it is better to have a regular sex partner. Because of course, it’s always about sex. Where Paul advocates celibacy, the new book has him saying that if you can’t be single, get youself a partner. “Better than being frustrated.” And, then it has the usual distortions and de-mythologizations: Demon possession becomes mental illness, the kingdom of God becomes God’s new world (those nasty oppressive underpinnings, don’t you know), Son of Man becomes Complete Person.

The people behind the new book says it’s is dedicated to “establishing peace, justice, dignity and rights for all” and focuses on “sustainable use of the earth’s resources” and the rest of the usual left-wing tripe. But it’s not just fringe groups pushing it.

The head of the Church of England and the Anglican Communion, Archbishop Rowan Williams is endorsing it. He says it’s “a book of extraordinary power.” Satanic power you mean, since all it can do is spread confusion about God’s Word and Sacred Revelation. Williams also said he hopes it spreads “in epidemic profusion.” Yeah, like the disease it is.
