  1. The TNIV is rubbish. It’s the politically correct version of the NIV; I won’t be using the NIV anymore and I will discourage others to boycott it. It puts political correctness above accuracy, the NIV has had its time.


  2. quiting church over a translation issue? Find a new church, dont let this creep in as a self conceited excuse.


  3. I quite my church over what they started to preach about Today’s New International Version. They claimed its purpose was to absolve the Jews for the crucifixion of Jesus. Personally, I think that is a load of anti-Semitic crap. They are getting there information from Tex Marrs.

    I think I am better reading my TNIV at home than attending most churches.


  4. Yes, I agree. There is a fear that the TNIV is incorrect because it tries to be gender-neutral where it the writer is speaking to both men and women. What gets me is that the NLT is also gender-neutral but it doesn’t get the negative publicity that the TNIV gets. Doesn’t seem fair.


  5. With all the negative nonsense and outright lying about the TNIV that’s going on, it’s a wonder that it’s even in the top ten. Whenever the TNIV translation is mentioned in my church, it’s amazing what people say and believe about it without ever checking out what is really truth.
