Happy are those who work for peace…
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy.
I’ve mentioned Micah 6:8 before.
Cease to do evil,
Learn to do good;
Reprove the ruthless,
Defend the orphan,
Plead for the widow.
“May mercy, peace, and love be lavished on you!”
Jude 1:2 (NET)
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the children of God.
More than a month ago, I noted that Mark Roberts was blogging the controversy surrounding the TNIV Bible. After writing only twenty-three posts on the topic, Mark is finished. Grab a mug of your favorite hot drink and settle down for some good reading.
My free TNIV Bible came in the mail yesterday, just a few days after Rolling Stone ran Zondervan’s ad for it.
Here’s an excerpt:
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.John 3:16-17 TNIB
