Thank you to my fellow Christian blogger, wdednh, for this important alert concerning the a new Bible translation being released. Without the type of vigilance of Christians like wdednh , many naïve and new Christians would fall prey to the deceitful world of Satan.

The copy right laws makes it very hard for translators to do their job properly, however there are some words and names which are not effected by any copy right laws, words and names such as God, Jesus Christ and Angels and few more.
