New Revised Standard Version
I was watching CSPAN2 this morning and there was a guy talking about a book he had written about how scribes changed the words in the New Testament to suit their purposes, blah, blah, blah. You know, the usual liberal BS. Anyhow, he said he was originally evangelical, then ecumenical, and finally agnostic. Okay.
He said the version of the Bible he likes is the New Revised Standard Version. I had never heard of it, so I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it turns out it's filled with liberal 'modifications.' For example, the original Christians didn't believe in private property.
In Acts 4:32 the NRSV says: "Now the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one claimed private ownership of any possessions, but everything they owned was held in common." Which strikes me as very odd because Acts 5:4 then says "Didn't it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn't the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied to men but to God." They missed the whole point!
Obviously the NRSV is just another attempt by the left to pave the way for forcing their ideas on the rest of us. People can live in little communistic pockets within a Capitalistic society. Capitalists can not live within a communistic society.
