Justin Peters reviews The Message

Some may remember my post regarding strange Bible translations, and how I poked fun at The Message's odd wording of Revelation 1:8. Well, it seems that pastor Justin Peters, over at his ministry's web page, has a short review of The Message's translation of the Bible. He takes a few key verses from the New Testament and places translations from The Message alongside the NIV, NASB, and KJV. Needless to say, there are some shocking and inexplicable changes. I think he does a good job getting to the point of the errors and not going the extreme route that we find so many of the KJV-Onlyists doing.
