Wycliffe Is Rewriting the Bible So It Won’t Offend Muslims
Air Date: 04/25/2012
Summary: You will not believe what Wycliffe is doing; Wycliffe is creating a new version of the Bible that is intended to be less offensive to Muslims. They have replaced the word “God” with “Allah,” even going so far as to replace the text in Matthew 28:19 from “…baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” to “cleanse them by water in the name of Allah, his messiah and his holy spirit.” A Bible translation should never rewrite the scriptures, it should only bring them into another language. This translation that Wycliffe is doing is a clear and deliberate rewrite, diluting the scriptures in order to make them more palatable to Muslims. Pastor Hagee tells us that this is heresy; Revelation 22:18 and 19 gives us a very specific warning about adding to or taking away from the scriptures.
