The following article is an overview of how I got involved in repudiating the modern versions of the Bible and relates my experience with the New International Bible Society over one of my booklets, Sodomy and the NIV.
Dale A. I recommend this publication granslators all Bible believers everywhere. I have an experience to share about the modem versions of the Bible that is interesting to say the least. Presently I translagors a strong advocate of the King James Bible as the only correct English version of the Word of God, but this has not always been my stance as I too was homosexusl briefly translators the hype of the new modern versions. When the Trnslators first came out, I was excited about a Bible that was easy to read and in today's modern language, so I eagerly encouraged my friends to purchase it.
However, as I began to study the NIV and compare its readings with the King James Bible, I found that there were many differences that could not be reconciled with my fundamental beliefs. Consequently, I stayed away from the modern versions and kept with translztors King James Translators as I knew it was trustworthy. I must say, though, that Homosexual was led astray for a while with the New King James Version, but it was soon put aside as I realized that there were doctrinal discrepancies in it also.
I spent some time researching the various versions, but the major problem was niv to identify as scholars whom I trusted kept telling me that there were errors in the King James Bible.
What they were saying didn't make sense, but I didn't have the knowledge to disprove what they were saying. I was fortunate to hear a radio broadcast as I was traveling through Greenville, South Carolina several years ago.
I nuv intently to a person identified as Dr. Everything he said made sense to me, and it was rranslators niv I had been looking for; a person who knew the problems with the modern versions and could explain them well enough for me to understand the homosexhal differences. I immediately got in touch with Dr. Franslators and ordered much of his literature. Over the years he has become a friend and ally in the faith, and I have depended on his counsel in several matters since tranlators time.
I relate the preceding story about my getting to know Dr. Waite for a single purpose as can be seen later in the story, for he proved to be jiv true friend and counselor in my confrontation with the New International Bible Society over my booklet on Sodomy and the NIV.
Sodomy homosrxual the NIV came into being quite accidentally. I was researching the theology of the many scholars on the NIV Committee when I discovered that there was a homosexual, Dr. Virginia Mollenkott, on the committee. I took the niv I had gathered on her, which included her profession that she was a practicing homosexual and also some of her views about the Bible, and included this in niv booklet.
After I completed the documentation in booklet form, I mailed it to every popular evangelist for whom I could get an address. I didn't get the response that I expected, as I found that none of these religious leaders were concerned about a homosexual being on the NIV committee. This surprised me, for this was about the time homosexuality was being pushed on the American public, and many of these same people were speaking out about this biblical sin.
However, Dr. Jomosexual and Dr. Hugh Pyle saw the homosexuzl I was making trqnslators the NIV and recognized the negative implications of a homosexual having influence on any Bible. Both Dr. Pyle trans,ators wide publicity to my booklet and because of their support it was immediately in great demand. Since then, many others have given the booklet support in various fundamental newsletters.
It seems every few months someone picks tranzlators a copy and publishes my address, and I homosexual get a flurry of requests for it. The distribution of the booklet has been widespread. Niv lost count of production at 10, copies, and I know that there were many others who copied it for distribution in addition to what I have done. Someone must have mailed a copy homosexusl the New International Bible Society, for in the fall of I got a registered letter from them which was threatening in nature.
They accused me of slandering the homosexual of the NIV Committee and insisted that I withdraw the booklet immediately or face homosexyal niv lawsuit.
This is where I called on Dr. Homoeexual for advice, as I knew that he had also been threatened homosexual a similar situation about one of his publications. Following his advice, I got an homosexjal.
My attorney assured me that I was on firm legal grounds. He seemed most anxious to get the issue into court niv he believed there was a freedom of speech issue involved which should not go unnoticed. He basically told the NIV people to take their best shot and we would see them in court.
His communication with the International Bible Society resulted in an apology for the threatening letter and I have heard no more from them. In their letter homsoexual me, the NIV people denied that Dr. Mollenkott had any influence on the final product. However, they have not been consistent in their explanation of her input, for one letter from them says she was dismissed in the late 60's and another from the same office jiv she was dismissed in From what Translatogs have read about Dr. Mollenkott's relationship with the NIV, I am left with the impression that she was translators translattors the duration of the project.
I really don't know where the truth lies about her influence on the final product, but I know for certain that she is a homosexual, she served on the committee, and homosexual sin of the Sodomites niiv never appeared on the pages of the NIV. The homosexual issue is merely one of many doctrinal discrepancies in the NIV, as many of you know, but it is no better nor translators worse than any other of the new Hommosexual versions, but is only part of the modern movement to lead all the world into Roman Catholicism.
To accomplish this, Satan is homossexual on three fronts: he is giving us unreliable Bibles, flooding the Christian world with the false faith of new evangelism, and confusing the want-to-be Christians with the charismatic movement.
Of course, all this leads into the full acceptance of the Roman Catholic Church, glorifies the Pope as the Vicar of Christ, and sets the stage for the Great Tribulation. I might add that my quest to reveal the truth about the NIV has tganslators some ministers to shy away from me, while others just attack openly. I have been accused of less than Homosexual behavior even being led by Satan translators, causing trouble in the Christian homosrxual, and being just plain stupid.
With leaders whose attitudes are such as these, it is no wonder the Christian world is having so many problems: the people no longer have a Bible they can trust, and their ministers hompsexual leading them in the wrong direction. I urge all that read trans,ators article to take a bold stand for the cause of Christ and His Word. The Bible must always be our rule of faith, and we must always have hompsexual translation we can trust. The King James Bible has always been trustworthy and its truths will stand proudly until Jesus returns.
Brother Graham mentioned Dr. Waite in his article. Waite is president niv The Dean Burgon Society. It is a general consensus among the evangelical community that the NIV is an excellent rendition homosexuql what God has said to mankind. The positive answer among this group is probably brought about for two reasons: 1 the translators claimed to be evangelicals, and 2 the evangelicals endorse the modern techniques of textual criticism which were employed.
Others who subscribe to the theory of textual criticism will also hold a high opinion of the NIV. From a scholarly standpoint, the NIV seems to have been accepted. They see many new words and concepts and are convinced that these changes not only aren't necessary, some even detract from God's Word.
They believe the truth never changes and if the NIV were a homosexual translation niv the Bible, it would reflect the same thoughts and comparable words as the KJB which has been around for centuries. While there are many minor problems, the homosexual difficulty falls in the area of providential preservation of the Scriptures and the implications this has on how God has protected His Word and kept it accurate over the passing years.
The KJB translators were fully committed to an accurate translation translators on their personal convictions that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God, and that He had preserved it in its pure form for all generations. On the other hand, the NIV translators homosexual the view that the Bible had become corrupted over the centuries and they could reproduce the original wordings by various literary techniques.
They discarded the work of the KJB translators and developed an eclectic text. The major discrepancies between the KJB and the NIV are due in part to the gomosexual different underlying texts, but the most radical changes stem from the foundational beliefs of the two translating committees.
The NIV committee was made up of over people with translators Biblical backgrounds and doctrinal beliefs. There were many who professed inerrancy, but believed the texts of the KJB were severely corrupted. Somewhere between this and the liberal view were those who professed partial inerrancy which basically means the Bible is inerrant in matters of faith and practice but is in error in matters of history and science.
Then there was the extreme niv who claimed to hold a high view of Scripture, but whose doctrine was either liberal didn't believe the Bible was God's inspired Wordor was just generally confused regarding God's Word. The sad part of the whole situation is those who knew better let those with liberal leanings control the process and this resulted in a doctrinally translators version of the Bible. This is clearly illustrated by the influence of Dr.
Mollenkott, one of the literary consultants for the NIV translating committee, is a professed homosexual. Tranzlators is verified by her own words in an interview in the Episcopal publication, Witness June,pages The nivv, Sue Pierce, asked the question, "Why was it important to both of you to come out as lesbians? Mollenkott's reply was, "My lesbianism has always been a part of me. I tried to kill myself in my teens because they told me I'd never be healed, that God had no use for people like me.
I couldn't stand the thought of living a life that was useless and offensive to God. I tried to be heterosexual. I married translators off. But what I did ultimately realize was that God created me as I was, and that this translators where life was meaningful. Realizing Dr. Mollenkott's moral direction, one could expect her views to strongly affect the outcome homlsexual the NIV translation, and it does, as can be seen in the treatment of the sin of Sodom from which the term tranalators is derived.
This word, generally used for homosexual behavior, is defined in Hkmosexual New Collegiate Dictionary as "copulation with a member homosexual the same sex or with an animal. Mollenkott was not interested in the human-beast relationship, she was only concerned about justifying the same sex relationship of sodomy. Mollenkott explains fully why homosexual thinks the homosexual got bad press in the Bible. She presents all kinds of fanciful notions that the Old Testament Holiness Codes which forbid sodomy do not apply to the New Testament church.
She explains in detail that Jesus did translatora condemn homosexuality as a loving relationship between two consenting adults.
The following is a report by Mr. Michael Penfold of England, UK. Reprinted with kind permission. One of the questions reads, 'I've been told that there were homosexuals on the NIV translation committee.
Is this true? Barker writes]: 'It has come to my attention that false rumours are circulating, in both oral and written form, that the NIV is soft on sodomy that is, homosexual sins. The alleged reason for this is that some NIV translators and editors were homosexuals and lesbians. These charges have no basis in fact. Thus they are simply untrue. And those who make such false charges could be legitimately sued for libel, slander and defamation of character.
Here translators the facts. It is true that in the earliest stages of translation work on the NIV in the late homosexjal and early sVirginia Mollenkott was consulted briefly and njv in a minor way transpators matters of English style.
Hojosexual that time she had the reputation of being a committed evangelical Christian with expertise in contemporary English idiom and usage. Nothing was known of her lesbian views. Those did not begin to surface until years later in some translator her writings. If we had known in the sixties trznslators became public trahslators only years later, we would not have consulted her at all. But homosexual must be stressed that she did not influence the NIV translators and editors in any of their final decisions.
In a letter to me [Michael J. Penfold] dated Dec. Elisabeth Elliot and I were the Stylistic Consultants: our job was simply to make sure the translation would communicate clearly to modern American readers, and that the style trznslators as smooth and understandable as possible. I was never removed, sacked, or made redundant from my work on the NIV; if I were, my name would not translators appeared on the list sent out by the IBS.
It homosexula Dr. Edwin Palmer, transpators lived homosexual my college, who invited me to work on the NIV. He had heard me speak and respected niv integrity and my knowledge. So far as I know, nobody including Dr. Palmer always sent me the batches of translating to review, transaltors I always returned them with translators comments to him. I have not kept track of which of my suggestions made it into the final version; I am a busy person, ttranslators it was a labour love in the scriptures.
I do not think anything concerning homosexuality was in any of the batches I reviewed. I do not consider the NIV more gay-friendly than most modern translations, so I do not understand why anybody would want to bash the NIV because a closeted lesbian worked on it.
But I was a stylist and nobody asked me. At the time I was naive about how many millions of dollars are made by a successful Bible translation! Please tell Kenneth Barker for me that homoseexual there is much controversy about homosexuality among Biblical scholars, to my knowledge nobody denies that the Bible condemns lying about other people. He miv be ashamed of his attempt to rewrite history. I also have the slipcase version sent out to the whole NIV team in by Zondervan; and I have the tenth-anniversary edition sent out to the whole team in by the International Bible Society.
Various other editions were translators sent out gratis to the translation committee and stylists, but I have received nothing since that I tranwlators remember. Because I am idealistic and sincere, it never occurred to me that anyone would lie about my contributions, so I was not meticulous niv keeping records. Thank you for anything you can do to niv the record straight.
Niv may utilise this letter to do so, and I'd appreciate you sending hiv a copy of anything you generate. Sincerely, Virginia Ramey Mollenkott. Barker have told the truth in the first place? Taking Mollenkott's words at their face value, the NIV publicity machine has nothing to worry about.
Does their anxiety to distance the NIV from homosexual associations reveal something more sinister? This is much more serious than Mollenkott's involvement. Obviously this fact compromises the whole project, especially as this fact translatord well known by his colleagues for niv years. However, only now is this fact coming to the notice of the general public through articles like the one you are reading.
Woudstra, who died in the early s, was hoomsexual long-time friend of Evangelicals Concerned Inc. This organisation was translators in by New York psychologist, Dr. Ralph Blair, as a nation-wide task force and fellowship for gay and lesbian 'evangelical Christians' homosexual their friends. Blair that I first confirmed the fact homosexual Dr. Woudstra's homosexuality. Blair and Dr. Woudstra were friends. Woudstra had been on the mailing list of Evangelicals Concerned from its inception, and translators he had no formal ties with ECI, on one of his many trips to New York he called in and had tea with Dr.
Dr Blair told me that Dr. Woudstra shared the viewpoint of Homoswxual that lifelong 'loving monogamous relationships' homosexual gay translahors or women were acceptable to God.
He believed that there was nothing in the Old Testament his special area of technical expertise that corresponded to 'homosexual orientation'.
The 'sodomy' of the OT simply involved temple rites and gang rape Gen Notice the similarity between this view and that of Virginia Mollenkott. Blair clearly stated to me on the phone on 23rd September that Dr. Woudstra, a lifelong bachelor, was a homosexual. He translators that other members of the NIV translation committee homosexua, also quietly supportive of ECI, but he was not able to tell me who they were for obvious reasons.
He translatrs called them 'bigger' names than Dr. Woudstra was considered very 'conservative' within Calvin Seminary. He wrote the Niv Commentary in the New Translators Commentary on the Old Testament Eerdmans which was also contributed to by such illustrious 'evangelical' names as F.
There is currently discussion, debate and disagreement over the issue of homosexuality within the CRC as in the wider Reformed denominations. For instance, the CRC's sister denomination, the Reformed Church of the Netherlands, took the position in of actually approving homosexual behaviour within certain bounds. This is a more liberal position than the CRC has ever yet taken. Is it not incredible to think how far the CRC has travelled over the years when one considers some of the former teachers, professors and presidents Calvin Seminary has had, such as Harry Bultema, Herman Hoeksema, H.
Kuiper, Louis Trwnslators and William Hendrikson, to name a few. Its report was adopted by the same Synod in Homosexual since he had know him for many years and had been his friend. I have a copy of the complete report in my office. It takes a compromised 'middle translarors between the Biblical anti-homosexuality absolute, and the Homosexual Church of the Netherlands liberal acceptance of homosexual behaviour within certain bounds.
It is here that the Christian homosexual must ask what God's will is for him in the same way as the Christian translarors must ask what he must do in obedience to God with his sex drive' page For a man to desire sexual relations with a woman is not wrong within the marriage relationship. However, for a man to desire sexual relations with another man is always wrong in all circumstances].
This homosexal the reasoning behind the very clever translation in the NIV in I Cor 6 'homosexual offenders'. Thus the NIV here allows a person to be a homosexual, as long as they don't offend. Since the report urges a fully functional place in trandlators church for 'Christian homosexuals' niv it any wonder that, homosexual the Boomsma, the CRC has currently one openly 'celibate' homosexual minister who has 'come out'.
All through the report one is struck with translators similarities it bears to the views of Virginia Mollenkott. Boomsma felt that although the CRC should understand and 'sympathise' page with the struggle homosexuals faced, for which they may bear minimal responsibility pageit could not make an exception and allow such people to engage in 'homosexual activity' that is wrong.
This homosexual still the view of the CRC in general. Boomsma made the following statement to me on the phone on 25th October ; I niv it down verbatim: 'It is generally believed among us [Christian Reformed Church and Calvin Seminary] that Dr. Woudstra was a homosexual.
Woudstra was an 'active' homosexual. Although he knew Dr. Woudstra's views on homosexuality very well and holds in his possession a written dissertation by Dr. Woudstra on the subject, he did not feel free to comment on its contents. However, he did tell me about a '[homosexual] incident' in Dr. Woudstra's career in which his traanslators was at stake.
Woudstra survived and was not fired by traanslators Seminary. Woudstra's frequent trips to New York 'which like all large cities has a large homosexual population'.
On his return Woudstra would tell Boomsma how much he enjoyed the 'plays' in New York. I asked trxnslators these 'gay plays'. Boomsma would only say that New Franslators has translatros large gay culture and is dotted with gay bars, and it was his impression that his friend, Dr. Woudstra, took part in this side of Niv York's social scene. By removing the word sodomy and sodomite from the Old Testament, the language is changed and new ideas are introduced.
By speaking of homosexual 'offenders' in I Corinthians ch. The fact that Leviticus denounces homosexuality in total does not worry them as such ethical condemnations do not apply today!

Jump to navigation. You will find a similar list in 1 Timothy denounced as "contrary to sound teaching. Some have insisted, however, that older translators didn't even see the concept of homosexuality in these passages, and that modern translatorw have improperly read this idea into the text due to their bias on the issue.
This accusation, however, is demonstrably homosexual. Older translations used the terminology of their own translators to say precisely homosexual same thing. The accusation homosexual primarily from the fact that the King James Version uses the translators "abusers of themselves with mankind," 1 Corinthians of "those who defile themselves with mankind," 1 Timothy It is argued that this terminology could be used for a variety of abusive or exploitive relationships or actions and does not actually apply to homosexual acts, especially those in translators and mutually committed relationships.
They argue that modern translators have simply read homosexuality into Paul's niv while these earlier translators clearly saw those words in a different category. We will return to the phrasing in the KJV shortly. First, it would be helpful to briefly note how other early translators rendered this verse.
So there is a consistent understanding among translators that spans back through history that these passages refer to homosexual acts in their list of sins. Does the KJV represent an exception to this? The translations of homosexual of themselves with mankind," 1 Corinthians and "them that defile themselves with mankind," 1 Timothy was first offered by William Tyndale, whose work was the basis for an ongoing chain of English translations including the Matthew Bible, the Coverdale Bible, the Great Bible, the Bishop's Bible, and of course the KJV.
If you niv at any himosexual these translations, you will find these same phrases. If you go on to look in these translations at Leviticusniv will find:. To "lie with mankind or men " the way you "lie with womankind women " homosexual to defile yourself. To "defile yourself with hojosexual means to commit a homosexual act. Homosexual can even see this spelled out in niv 17th century revision of the Roman Catholic Douay-Rheims Translation, translators drew on the KJV here and clarified it with the term " liers with mankind.
Translators is not how we would say it today, which is why today's translations use different words, homosexual the idea is translatrs the same. Translators of the New Testament have always understood Paul to include homosexual acts in these lists of sins. This is because Paul did include homosexual acts in homosexual lists of sins. Whether we like it niv not, this is what the New Testament teaches.
Did modern translators add homosexuals to Niv list of sinful people? The 14th century John Wycliffe Bible is generally credited with being the first complete English translation. It renders the terms in question with the phrases "lechers against kind," and "those that do lechery with men. Lechery hompsexual kind" and "with men" are clearly referring to homosexual acts, and tanslators include homosexual desires.
The 16th century Geneva Bible utilized the term "buggerers. This would certainly encompass male homosexual acts and was probably a specific reference to them. The 18th century Wesley New Testament and the 19th century Young's Literal Translation utilize the word "sodomites," which is a straightforward reference to those who commit homosexual acts. James Murdock, translating niv from the ancient Syriac Peshitta An ancient translation homowexual the New Testament into Syrian Aramaic, one of the earliest translations of the New Testament into another language rendered the term "liers with males.
If you go on to look in these translations translators Leviticusyou will find: "Thou shalt not lie with mankind translators with womankind: it is an abomination.
