A Conservative Version ACV

This is a “conservative right-wing” group (conservapedia.com) that is translating the Bible using modern idioms instead of trying to be literal. They reject the idea that a Bible translator needs to know Greek and Hebrew and have a good, sound translation theory, they just try to put the Bible into modern “hip” phraseology.

Andy Schlafly is the head of this mess. He doubts that everything in the Bible was really said, and places doubts on many passages as later additions.

I would stress that there are two valid interests running through Bible translations: (1) the Bible must accurately represent the origins, (2) the Bible translation that we use must be understandable to the majority of the people. Although there is some validness to both points of view, we must hold accuracy over ease of understanding. The diversity of people from one extreme (illiterate) to highly educated means that the best Bible translation must hit the majority of people, and this is not using street language or slang, but the English that the majority of the educated people speak. This would throw out this translation as being poor from its conception.

My evalation: Don’t waste your time on this Bible.

Matthew 5:21-22, “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ But I tell you that a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do, so git ‘er done.”
