New Bible Depicts Christ As A Woman

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: The Black Kettle, Cross Posted on Blogger News)

The publisher, LBI Institute, has released this new Bible entitled:
"Judith Christ of Nazareth, The Gospels of the Bible, Corrected to Reflect that Christ Was a Woman, Extracted from Matthew, Mark, Luke and John." The book is available in bookstores and online.

"This long-awaited revised text of the Gospels makes the moral message of Christ more accessible to many, and more illuminating to all," says Billie Shakespeare, V.P. for the publisher. "It is empowering. We published this new Bible to acknowledge the rise of women in society."

Although you probably won't see Christians rioting in the streets over this "translation" one has to wonder whether the publishers are actually Christians to begin with (especially since altering the words is a bad thing according to the bible).

Unfortunately it seems that "Billie" has not realized that the Bible already elevates many women throughout it's pages, ranging from Deborah the prophetess to Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist, not to mention the books of Esther and Ruth. Although some people might actually purchase these bibles as "divine," anyone preaching from such text would be deemed as "spiritually ignorant" and laughed off whatever theology they stood upon.

Here is a sampling of how twisted some of these verses are.

It is probably easy to see the distortions of scripture by just glancing at these "verses" and no further comments will be given towards their stupidity. Tim (who blogs over at "The Black Kettle") does have an interesting question for the publisher though.
I wonder if this publisher would be willing to reprint the Koran in like manner?

He wouldn't dare. Or would he?

Where is all the Outrage ? Why arent Christians SCREAMING over this? Oh Put a Koran in the John and all the world goes nuts, But if it Pertains to GODS WORD NOTHING! PHONY 2-FACED CHRISTIANS!
