The Message "bible" is Disgusting

But the word of the Lord endures forever." Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you. (1 Peter 1.25 NASB)


I have no respect for "The Message" bible. It continually waters-down the message of God. A prime example is the rendering of Hebrews 10.31. I will compare:
  • From the King James: "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."
  • From the New King James: "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."
  • From the New Century Version: "It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
  • From the World English Bible: "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."
  • From the New American Standard Bible: "It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God."
  • From the New International Version: "It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."
  • From the New Living Translation: "It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God."
  • Even the heretical New World Translation says: "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of [the] living God." (Which many Jehovah's Witnesses will do if they do not repent from their cult)



  • Now for "The Message" rendering of Hebrews 10.31: "Nobody's getting by with anything, believe me."

    What is wrong with that version? It totally takes out any hint of God's Judgment. The people who came up with the trash they pass off as a Bible (The Message) need to repent for their mishandling of God's Word!

    When even the HERETICS translate that verse correctly, it shows how far out The Message bible is!
