    Davida, although I have come to find you, in particular, a bit distasteful, I don't hate or resent any of you.... I just recognize the cut of the cloth.

    Maybe you are right. After all, God did say having an accepted and approved doctrine is what saves us. He DID say that, didn't He? (Or was that a Pharisaical idea?)

    Would the 23rd Psalm be wrong if I read it: "The Lord is my loving shepherd?" Or "The Lord loves me as a shepherd?" Nothing in the psalm says a shepherd loves the sheep he herds. They are his business and his livelihood. Would you call that "wrong" since you know the Lord loves us?

    BTW, did anyone notice that I said I felt I had to personally know something about a particular situation before I could say it was good or bad? That might be something for all of us to think about.

    One thing I look for through all these "Heretical-Damning" screams and smokescreens is what the Bible said to look for: "What is the fruit?" In each case that I know of personally enough to say something about, the "contaminated" people are closer to and more in tune with the will and desires of God than they were before contact with all these things so many of you say are going to send them to Hell.

    See, this is where "tradition" may have bitten you in the butt. What did note #2 right there in TPT say about BFF? Would not that particular claim be one of the very first things these heavy-duty detractors of the Passion Translation would have gone gunning for to disprove? But they didn't touch it. Now, I am no language scholar, so I don't really know if note #2 is accurate or not, but I DO know that actually God IS my best friend.

    As far as The Shack goes, we just left a church over that about a month ago. Good people, but blinded to God in that book. "Black and female" sent them into a mouth-frothing frenzy. I personally know a woman who, years ago, was begging her preacher to pray for her to die. She is the one who gave me a copy of The Shack. It turned her life around and she is now one of the most energetic people in her church.

    You see, I AM starting over.... getting freed from a lot of that "Stinking Thinking" our giant Baptist church pumped into my impressionable brain as an elementary school child, then later, 12 years of Church of Christ Bible College. It started in a hospital room where I finally met Jesus in 2012. I knew the "plan", but not the "man,"

    I had to go look it up on my own, but I do agree that was some strange stuff. I am not as steeped in tradition as most of you, but I am pretty Fundamental in a lot of ways, so I probably would not be attending that church. (Even though I was called, cold, out of an audience to pray healing over seven people, so I know these strange things do happen) But, it doesn't change the beauty of The Passion Translation. As far as the prayer goes, I think you, yourself, need to go back and listen to the words he said. He did not say he was going to expose God to the world as a fraud. He said he was going to return to the USA, and tell his financial backers and supporters that God didn't come through for him. Pretty bad, no doubt, but I have to say I have said as bad, and know MANY people who will also admit that they were just as desperate and stupid at times. In fact, some time back, I even shook my fist at the heavens and swore at God. (a dead wife will leave you in some strange head warps) So, I just don't have it in me to be as judgmental as you guys seem to be about this guy..... and I absolutely love the Passion Translation, and wish this translation had been around when I was having the KJV drilled into my head 65 years ago as an eight-year-old child.

    If you would post it, I would. But, I see nothing.

    No, No right thinking person should accept such an offer of "what you think you heard someone tell you." I asked you if you were willing to post Brian's own words. It seems you may never have actually even HEARD his own words.

    You have made a lot of noise about what you want to call an ULTIMATUM. Are you willing to do more than just claim that — by posting specifically what the man said he prayed to God? (In his own words.) Well, ARE you? Or do you just want to continue to try to stir up animosity? You say (if I recall correctly) that he told God he was going to give up if the people he was working with did not start turning to God. Is that right? And you see some sort of ultimatum in that? I would probably be safe to say that almost all of us have reached a point in our lives that we were praying for God to give us some sort of sign or hope or help because if things kept going the same way, we were about at the end of our ropes. Were we (were you) giving God and ultimatum by praying that? As I recall, even some of the Psalms were written along the same lines.

    Very accurate also. Go look up the credentials of this man you are presuming to tell how to do translations.

    Talk about self-imagined arrogance.
