Scripture… As We Live It #8

Posted by on Jun 29, 2008 in as we live it, scripture | 1 comment

This is the eighth passage from “Scripture… As We Live It“:

Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way every church growth statistic into him who is the head of the universal body, into Christ, who gives direction to the head of the local body, the pastor, from whom the whole local body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped by the church growth specialists, when each part is working properly as determined by your leaders, makes the local body grow so that it builds itself up in love in numbers and programs and staff. (Ephesians 4:15-16 remix)

(By the way, for similar Scripture translations, see “Modern Church Translations” by Mark.)

    Thanks for the link Alan. I have really enjoyed your scripture … as we live it posts. As I read them they brought to memory a huge amount of re-translations I had done as a teenager called the “My Church Bible.” They were all written on paper, and I can’t find them. So, I am starting over with the Modern Church Translations. Thanks for re-inspiring me to visit the whole thing again.
