LTRP Note: The Message “Bible” written by the late Eugene Peterson is widely quoted by pastors and other Christian leaders. For many years, Lighthouse Trails has tried to show that this paraphrase of God’s Word should not be used (as it so often is) as God’s Word, and in fact, is a distortion of God’s Word as we can see in the following piece.

When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:44)
The Message “Bible” is the unholy gift that keeps on giving the gift of spiritual deception. Millions of copies have been sold, and many in the visible church use The Message as their primary “Bible.”

For whosover shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. (KJV) Click here to continue reading.
