NAR Bible ‘Translation’ Dropped By Bible Gateway, Author Claims ‘Cancel Culture’

The author of The Passion Translation version of the Bible is up and arms after Bible Gateway removed it from their list of available resources, claiming that the snub is a result of “cancel culture” in the church.

While Bible Gateway has yet to publicly comment on their motivation for doing so, we can’t say that we’re surprised.

This bible “translation” might as well have been called “The New Apostolic Reformation Translation” given that it’s pretty much exclusively endorsed by NAR folk, from Bethel to Bobbie Houston, James Goll, John and Lisa Bevere, Patricia King, Chuck Pierce, and is infused with their special kind of theology.

The Passion is a single-author “translation” of the scriptures by NAR “Apostle” Dr. Brian Simmons of Stairway Ministries, who claimed that Jesus appeared to him and gave him “secrets” of the Hebrew language. Lest you be confused about the “Dr.” in front of his name, it wasn’t due to his scholarly prowess.

Rather, he received it from Wagner Leadership Institute – an NAR organization founded by C. Peter Wagner that offers courses in subjects like dream interpretation and miracle-working and where you can get a “Masters of Spiritual Healing, Deliverance, and Warfare” or a “Masters of Apostolic Leadership and Applied Ministry.”

Not to be rude, but that dude is as crazy as a rat in a coffee can. See below. (Warning, brief representation of Jesus)

This is the guy who “translated” the bible.

As you’d expect, Simmons gets all testy when people call it a paraphrase and not a translation, but what does he expect with passages like these provided by Sara Boyd that are added in and are drenched in NAR terminology and doublespeak, not to mention the running commentary found in thousands of footnotes?

Galatians 2:19

ESV: For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God.

TPT: It was when I tried to obey the law that I was condemned with a curse, because I’m not able to fulfill every single detail of it. But because the Messiah lives in me, I’ve now died to the law’s dominion over me so that I can live for God in heaven’s freedom!

Galatians 6:6

ESV: Let the one who is taught the word share all good things with the one who teaches.

TPT: And those who are taught the Word will receive an impartation from their teacher; a sharing of wealth takes place between them.

Psalms 18:1

ESV: I love you, O Lord, my strength.
TPT: Lord, I passionately love you!  I want to embrace you, For now you’ve become my Power!

Feel free to drop them a line and thank them for removing this abomination from their page.
