This article highlights the “Conservative Bible Translation”–an incredibly stupid, irresponsible perversion of God’s Word. The argument of the project: scholars are liberal for the most part and translate the Bible too much like democrats. So they are going to translate it according to their conservative Republican values.
Avoid this at all cost. Jesus is not a Republican. He’s not a Democrat either. Jesus is Lord.
Jesus was not a “conservative” either, if by that you mean anything like modern American political conservatives. Nor is He a Progressive, Socialist, Communist, Liberal, Whig, radical, reactionary, fundamentalist or any other category we can put Him in.
He is Lord of Lords and King of Kings. His ways are not our ways.
