i was lead to Christ with a NIV bible...i could understand it....and i read it...i love Jesus..... an NIV bible was what i learned from.... i needed no person to translate the ..." thee's and thou's " just plain english of the 1976 translation of the NIV i should have been reading a 1613 version....that was translated by 3 people in England,,,,,is that correct ? I think this church is choking on a gnat and swallowing a camel........i was saved after i read the NIV so praise the LORD my GOD... and thank you translators of the NIV !!!!! i understand Jesus loves me and i should repent and follow the woman at the well !!

Very interesting story - The reality however is that in order to be able to make an intelligent assessment about this story, more information is needed - without that, we boil down to opinion and conjecture. Departing from those above two notions I'd encourage those that visit here to take a look at a blog of our weekly radio bible study broadcast.

Tonight the heavens opened and rain fell. Book burning didn't take place. There were several news crews, reporters, Sheriff and protesters. If I had been the pastor I would have been embarrassed that more protesters came out than members. There may have been books destroyed but when the flock left the building it was the woman and children first, only five of them and then the pastor himself. As the woman and children left he turned out the porch light, as if trying to hide their identities and turned it on and then back off when he left.

During the service it was said the news crew and others were listening through the floor upstairs and could here yelling from the service. The only disappointing thing was that more locals didn't attend the event. One came as far as Chattanooga, Tn and others an hour or so away. Was a peaceful event and most that were there didn't agree with this radical man!

There were signs that read things like: What would Jesus do, Who are we to judge and several others. A gentleman that was dressed in an outfit of a Nazi soldier came out, gave an interview saying this promotes hate. He wouldn't give his name and held two books, one was the Mormon bible and the other was not able to be seen. He did say that he was only wearing a costume and that is all it was. Protesters were unsure if he was there in support of the event or against it. Left most of us puzzled.

We are unsure if chicken and all the sides were served!
