Some Mainline Christian organizations are changing their holy scripture to avoid offending Muslims

“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” John 17:17 (KJV)

Not only does this violate their scripture, but it also defeats the purpose of their mission–to share the Gospel. If mainline Christian organizations fear Muslims so much that they have to edit what they believe to be the Word of God, how far can they be from submission? Where are the righteous, the outraged, the proud?

First, Wycliffe and SIL have produced Stories of the Prophets, an Arabic Bible that uses an Arabic equivalent of “Lord” instead of “Father” and “Messiah” instead of “Son.” Second, Frontiers and SIL have produced Meaning of the Gospel of Christ , an Arabic translation which removes “Father” in reference to God and replaces it with “Allah,” and removes or redefines “Son.”

It is Islamic authorities who should be excising the quran and hadith of the ideology that calls for jihad, genocide, subjugation and oppression of women, Jews, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs and all non-Muslims. It is the ummah who should be calling for sharia bans. Instead, the Christians are bastardizing their scripture?  The Muslims refer to Christians in their daily prayers as “those who are led astray” (Muslims curse Christians and Jews multiple times in daily prayers). This madness validates their contempt and supremacism:

Concerned Christian missionaries, Bible translators, pastors, and national church leaders have come together with a public petition to stop these organizations. They claim a public petition is their last recourse because meetings with these organizations’ leaders, staff resignations over this issue and criticism and appeals from native national Christians concerned about the translationshave failed to persuade these agencies to retain “Father” and “Son” in the text of all their translations.”

Biblical Missiology, a ministry of Boulder, Colorado-based Horizon International, is sponsoring the petition. The main issues of this controversy surround new Arabic and Turkish translations. Here are three examples native speakers give:

First, Wycliffe and SIL have produced Stories of the Prophets, an Arabic Bible that uses an Arabic equivalent of “Lord” instead of “Father” and “Messiah” instead of “Son.” Second, Frontiers and SIL have produced Meaning of the Gospel of Christ , an Arabic translation which removes “Father” in reference to God and replaces it with “Allah,” and removes or redefines “Son.”

For example, the verse which Christians use to justify going all over the world to make disciples, thus fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19) reads, “Cleanse them by water in the name of Allah, his Messiah and his Holy Spirit” instead of “baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

    2Th 2:3
    Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

    • I do not see or have read anywhere in the BIBLE where it says we” The True Christians have to satisfy any one and that includes muslims.

      • Furthermore do not care if it offends the muslims. (What is in the BIBLE) The truth is the truth. Live with it.

  • Though I have been privileged to study comprehensively the Holy Scriptures in 8 English & 4 Spanish versions, still the most accurate and very best is the KJB1611. There are profound problems with MANY of the modern versions that are clearly revealed by Dr. Douglas Stauffer in his outstanding book “One Book- One Authority” linked here: http://www.amazon.com/One-Book-Authority-Douglas-Stauffer/dp/0967701600/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1423509105&sr=8-2&keywords=douglas+stauffer

  • Carolann

    Amen, Mario. These people are not true Followers of Jesus to begin with~~ they are not obeying the Bible ~ cause they are changing Holy Words that are important~~ the words have been in the Bible Thousands of Years ~ and are Words of the Holy Spirit which
    is TRUTH! They have the curse of Revelation on them~~ They will be SORRY LATER when the time comes for them to be judged~ By GOD AlMIGHTY. They will see Flames of hell fire.

    • Hallelujah, To GOD be the GLORY

  • Stephen

    so they can’t offend Muslims but they CAN offend CHRISTIANS?!?!!!

  • In God’s Holy Word we are told to “watch” “lest we be caught unaware”
    in at least four different places. Take a moment and look at Matthew 25:13, Luke 21:36, 1 Thessalonians 5:6, and Revelation 3:3. Where am I going with this? I am going trying to establish the point that all this is taking place but very few people are not the least bit interested or aware that this is happening. As we have been warned, at such a time as we are living in today there millions of people (I hope it will be in the millions but I truly wonder) will vanish from the face of this planet and many who thought they would will not. We are seeing the handwriting on the wall and people had better wake up NOW instead of later when later means too late.

    • GOD will WIN the final battle and that is all we need to know. So let them play their games and just set back and watch it ALL unroll and know who is the winner.

  • I do not see anywhere in the BIBLE where it says we “True CHRISTIANS” NEED TO CHANGE THE BIBLE TO SATISFY ANYONE AND THAT INCLUDES MUSLIMS.

  • Weezie

    STAY AWARE….STAY VERY AWARE…THE CHURCH OF CHRIST DOES NOT BOW OR BEND TO ANYONE.

  • Furthermore, I do not care if it offends the muslims.

  • George W

    How stupid and cowardly can any people get?! When the s**t hits the fan it will be a well deserved hit! I know this is Christian website but screw what the muslims want. Grow some bollocks people!!

  • Brian

    Absolutely not frankly I don’t care what offends muslims and my Bible is absolutely not going to be read any different if anything when I read the words Father an Son they are read with a loud proud voice as I have been saved through loving grace. We pray the Father and Son and the Holy Sprit Amen.

  • laura

    One world religion. Men and women who alter the Word of God do not believe it in the first place.

    • chris johnson

      Amen Laura.

  • Patti

    They need to leave the Christian prophets and prophetesses alone if they don’t want their prophets disrespected. They can take away a church, a business, etc. Now’s the time when I really want to go off on some church officials associating with another faith but they would haul me off if I did. I’m praying.

  • I only Read the KING JAMES AUTHORIZED VERSION of the HOLY BIBLE!!

  • Ah ! Boo hoo for the poor Muslims ! if you don’t agree 
    with their satanic book you can have your head lopped
    off ! Or burnt alive for entertainment ! God never 
    authorised these alleged christians to change his Word, 
    they are furthering the goals of their own agenda, 
    deliberately changing the meaning ! God HIMSELF has
    put his WORD above his own name.

    Psalms 138:2   I will worship toward thy holy temple, 
    and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy 
    TRUTH: for thou hast magnified thy WORD above 
    ALL thy name. 

    WHY ? BECAUSE THE WORD OF GOD IS THE
    ABSOLUTE TRUTH !!

      “Chrislam” indeed!!
      OUR HOLY FATHER IN HEAVEN
      IS NOT ALLAH!!!

    Do not be afraid,the muslims are killing each other like flies. They will soon be extint. Question:why did the pope kiss the koran ,makes one think,nuns dress the same as muslim woman !mmmmmm

    • Islam was a creation of the Vatican. Another reason why the Muslims love the queen of heaven, the Virgen Mary.

  • Johnny Lombard

    All I can say is “WO” unto them who take out or add to the Holy word of God.
    I couldn’t even consider it to be the bible without the Father the Son or the Holy Spirit. The three are one,without them there is no bible or hope.

    I am so glad that people are seeing these verses that have been taken from the KJV Bible to apes what people want to believe. A lot of them were written by some of these people who are wanting same sex marriage. People you need to learn about the versions and see what is in them and who wrote them instead of saying they are easier to understand. If you are truly saved, you can read the KJV and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal it to you. If someone as simpleminded as me can understand it, anyone can.

    Have any of you actually gone to the original sources to find out what the real issue is or are you just believing the sound bites that are skewed to get a reaction out of people? Absolutely no Wycliffe translator is advocating taking the Son of God out of a Bible translation.What has happened in a few cases (out of thousands of translation projects) is that the phrasing has been changed to make it clear what is meant so that readers aren’t confused by incorrect understandings. Changing Son of God to Spiritual Son of God is not changing the meaning in any way. Don’t be sheep and actually look at the real information. Also, don’t assume that what some radical translators did and showed to a Wycliffe consultant was what the consultant agreed to. Wycliffe is the premier Bible translation organization and unfortunately its name has sometimes gotten attached to translations that it doesn’t approve of.

    without these word father and son of god it is no bible.so what they have is worthless.

  • Mark 8:38 KJV (Jesus speaking)
    38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

  • I have been in a spiritual battle with my pastor who uses the NKJV and stands by it. He is trying to convince me that it is closer to the writings of the Greek and Hebrew which he claims the New and Old Testaments are originally made up from. He encourages me to get cd’s of the Greek and Hebrew writings so I’ll better understand what the true word of God says. I guess everyone needs to find themselves the Greek and Hebrew writings and study those along with the NKJV in order to get the true word.
    My question is how all the peoples of the past who have found salvation in Christ through the KJV during the past several years could have been so wrong and misled up until now when we have all these so called scholars and younger ministers who find the newer translations to be so much more ‘enlightening’ than those old KJV’s. What a shame to see what is happening to our society. The watering down of the TRUE Word God, total sentences being removed, changes in the wording so nobody is offended. The times, they are changing…but not for the better. It’s no wonder that people are either turning their backs on the church or simply thumbing their noses at any mention of the Bible or salvation. Oh, Lord, have mercy! Most churches do not even have alter calls anymore.
