Are transliterations wrong? Did Peterson compose The Message with a New Age agenda, purposely perverting the Scriptures to support paganism? What does God think and what does He reveal to us through the mind of Christ? How are we, in His sight, to view and use the Bible? These important matters are discussed in these letters, along with addressing the particular spirits and attitudes of our correspondents. It is ever about our attitude and brokenness towards the Lord; it is not about having a perfect Bible or even perfect understanding of it:
"What if I could prophesy and understand all secrets and all knowledge? And what if I had faith that moved mountains? I would be nothing, unless I loved others" (1 Corinthians 13:2 CEV) .
This woman got the ball rolling, condemning us for our occasional use of The Message:
This woman has an article on her website (www.crossroad.to), which Debra and others use to support their condemnation of The Message:
The editors of the magazine that posted Berit’s article, in whom we deal with two beasts in human form:
Did it really happen? This story is reported to be not included in the “earliest and most reliable ancient manuscripts” and that “other ancient witnesses do not have John 7:53-8:11.” There has been great debate over the centuries as to whether or not the story of the woman caught in adultery and brought before the Lord really happened, and if so, whether or not it should be included in the original gospel of John (or in any other).
There are some blatant additions and corruptions in the Book of Matthew. Why should anyone be surprised that the enemy sows tares in the good field, an illustration given to us by the Lord Jesus Christ? We need to recognize what is not of God and not let it interfere with what is.

God has been leading me into truth in quite a few areas over the last 6 months, and I now that I have to stand firm for truth in my own life without compromise, buy His grace. My life has taken some tough turns in the past year, all leading me to this point with my Heavenly Father. I have already received some persecution from family, wife, church for taking this stand but I still refuse to compromise. I just want to say it is encouraging to see others taking a hard start, and even greater that you are sharing this with others. I plan to continue reading and probably will have some future questions/correspondence if that is alright! Thank you, and may our Lord Jesus bless you.

When you believe the Lord Jesus Christ and begin to walk in the light with Him, then it’s an absolute certainty you’ll be opposed by the world, particularly the religious, whose power isn’t from Him, but is in themselves, under the prince of this world. That’s the way it is. “Yea, and all that will live g...
