  • I would never buy or read The Message Bible.

    • mywordlikefire:

      I am glad about that. But as homo-spirituality/homo-fascism continue to rise, it may well be that compromising churches turn to The Message or something like it. Thank you for reading these articles, I really appreciate it.

  • I wouldn’t buy, if I had one, I wouldn’t even donate it to Goodwill!

  • Thank you for the exposure of this corrupted text that is an impostor for the Word of God. I read the NKJV. God bless you:)

  • The Message bible is known to be the most demonic bible ever printed.
    Yes the NIV, NKJV & co are bad but nothing compared to this so,called Message bible.

    It’s nick name is THE MYSTIC BIBLE.

      I am not a King James only believer. I use the NASB mostly. But that being said, with the numerous messed up translations, we would undoubtedly be much better off if we had just stayed with the King James.

    The Message is not a bible and not a translation. It is Eugene Peterson’s new age pulp fiction.

  • Tim:

    “The Message” denies the Lordship of Jesus Christ. You will not find a reference to Jesus as Lord anywhere in the book; only to Jesus as “Master”. This should be enough reason for any Christian to utterly reject this apostate version.

  • Just look at the Lord’s prayer in this ‘version’. The difference is astounding.

  • Janice:

    I wouldn’t by NKJ look at the symbol on front it’s New Age. Really it’s Old Age because it’s from satan.

  • To the “mywordlikefire”. Sept 26,2013. I used KJV as my main bible for 17 years. Then I began to study history. I encourage you to do the same. The film “Monummental”. Has a great bit of it which may surprise and encourage you.

    Today, I happened to read Ex.33:12-23 from The Message Bible. I only had my mobile phone on me and looked up the verses on Google. Intending to read NKJV or similar, but saw The Message listed as well. I totally agree with John Lanagan’s comments from his booklet on The Message, and am certainly against it’s teachings. However, out of curiosity, I read Peterson’s translation of these verses from Exodus 33 and was appalled. I found his interpretation arrogant and disrespectful to God. I felt sick to the core. The Message Bible should be banned!

    The Message has a quote from a George Harrison song claiming that ‘By chanting the names of the Lord you’ll be free’! The song is Awaiting On You All from his album All Things Must Pass.
    The opening lines of the song are: ‘You don’t need no love in/You don’t need no bed pan/You don’t need a horoscope or a microscope/to see the mess that you’re in’.
    Compare the off-Message version of Colossians 2:8-9 : ‘You don’t need a telescope, a microscope or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ…’
    Now read it in a proper translation (in this case the NASB, though others are pretty much the same): ‘See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form…’
    Admittedly it’s difficult to compare when the off-Message is so totally different, but I hope you’ll see that Petersen has needlessly quoted from a song about salvation through Hinduism. Perhaps it’s his idea of an in-joke. Whatever it is, it is NOT a translation of the text and, like the rest of his ghastly book, should be avoided at all costs.
