The L Word

The Conservative Bible Project deems the Bible too liberal, and has undertaken to revise it.

Among the passages they take exception with is Luke 23:34: ‘Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.’ Some of the most famous final words ever, uttered by the dying flesh of Christ, and CBP wants to expurgate them.

Clearly these fools have not actually read the Bible, or they would dearly heed its final verses, wherein it is written: ‘For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.’ Revelation 22:18-19.

Since Jesus also said, ‘I and my Father are one,’ denying God his own words should go well with the CBP and its adherents….

Before The CBP rips the passage from its pages, here is what the Bible says about liberals. Isaiah 32:5-6: 'The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful. For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail. The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right. But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.'

Thereby is the liberal justified, and what is vile--the opposite of liberal--defined and decried.

Here are some definitions of liberal taken from the dictionary: ‘Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas; free from bigotry. Tending to give freely; generous.'

Why is that bad?

Jesus Christ is liberal.

To quote your ‘Christian’ leader, antichrist Bush, “If you’re not with us, you’re against us.” The enemy of Christ is Satan, and it is the devil’s work that you do, saying that good is bad, right is wrong, and demonizing liberal as a four letter word. You can skewer scripture to your own warped social and political ends, but you can’t change truth.

There are a couple of four letter L words that do pertain here.

Anyone who alters the spirit of the word of God is a LIAR.

Another one is LOVE, which is the heart of Christ and his ministry, whether preaching the greatest commandment--above all love God, and thy neighbor as thyself--or demonstrating the greatest love, that a man lay down his life for his friends. In all its variations—from lovely to lovingkindness—the word appears 558 times in the King James Bible. Since love is a very liberal trait, I wonder how many of those references will remain after the Consortium for Biblical Perversion is done with its mangle of a revision.
