I will happily take this down if anyone has a copyright, but I couldn’t just link to it. I had to put it on the blog. It is too perfect. (And then it sat in my queue so long that I can’t find the link to the original…)
I won’t say that no pastor has the capacity or permission to publicly disagree with Bible translators. I hope to be one of those pastors begging to differ with a particular rendering here or there someday. But really, it’s tossed off so easily!
And look at the people’s eyes! They’re believing it! Especially in the back, where the people with bigger heads sit! (Though the preacher arguably has the biggest head. =)
We preachers of God’s Word truly ought to be careful and humble in our use of the original languages.
