    I am glad that you have found this information helpful. It is unfortunate that such materials as identified in this chart even exist. We, as professing Evangelicals, have exceeded what Jehovah’s Witnesses have done in their ‘New World Translation.”

    Excellent article. I have used your research along with others while co-authoring my book called “Idolatry In Their Hearts” (http://www.deceptioninthechurch.com/idolatrybook.html) in response to the Word Christian Gathering of Indigenous People movement, along with those who inspired it such as Don Richardson, Daniel Kikawa, Richard Twis who were, in turn, inspired by the Catholics and their use of syncretism. Many Bible translation societies today have followed their mandate which is why you end up with “Bibles” that cowtow to false religions. It is disgrace and brings the cause of Christ into disrepute.
