Default NRSV comes out with the Green Bible???




THE GREEN BIBLE (Friday Church News Notes, February 29, 2008,
www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - The Green
Bible, the first environmentally-themed Bible, is scheduled for
publication by HarperOne in the fall of this year. Based on the New
Revised Standard Version, The Green Bible will use green ink to
highlight passages that deal with the environment (which won't
require much green ink!) and will feature commentaries by
environmentalists and a "green trail guide" of
environmentalist-thinking Christian leaders through history. Mark
Tauber, vice president of HarperOne, says: "Going green has become a
top concern among many Christians as they begin to see protecting all
of creation as a biblical obligation. Our Green Bible offers them a
new lens to identify how caring for creation comes right out of the
Scriptures" (Christian Retailing Newsletter, Dec. 3, 2007). At the
New Baptist Covenant Celebration in Atlanta in January former
Vice-President Al Gore was presented with a Green Bible, but it only
had a green cover and even Al will have to wait until the fall to get
a "real" Green Bible. The Bible does not support the modern
environmentalist movement and its frenzy over "global warming."
Bible-believing Christians are not the polluters of the earth and we
appreciate clean water and healthy air as much as anyone, but we also
know that the earth is under God's curse because of man's fall and is
destined to be burned up and replaced. That is the "global warming"
we need to be most concerned about. We are not going to save the
earth, but by God's grace we can seek to save souls before it is too
late. "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men
count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that
any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the
day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the
heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall
melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein
shall be burned up" (2 Peter 3:9-10).

I have heard men, with prudish and mock-modesty, who would like to alter the Bible; and (I almost blush to say it) I have heard ministers alter God's Bible, because they were afraid of it...

And that when the words of Inspiration are seriously imperilled, as now they are, it is scarcely possible for one who is determined effectually to preserve the Deposit in its integrity, to hit either too straight or too hard.” Dean John William Burgon (The Revision Revised. pp. vii-viii)

Yaaa know.....When I first saw the Thread Title I figured that it was something about the J.W.s and their NWT which was commonly nicknamed "The Green Phantom"-

...but no,,,rather it's another publishing house (this time HarperOne) trying to get a "niche-market". Kinda reminds me of that "Rainbow Study" Bible where they color coded each and every verse--- I remember that they used gray for "sin"----IMO that is very true as to many peoples' viewpoint on sin---It isn't really as black as The Lord says it is, but rather it is gray.

As for the "Green People" and the "Mother Earth" worshipers out there, it is obvious that they have never opened up the very first book of the Bible and read Genesis chapter 1: verses 26-31.

These people will realise what a waste of time this all was when Christ returns.

"Lord, we tried our best to keep your creation clean, and we think we did a pretty good job"

"Yeah, it looks very neat and tidy, good job. Burn it"

..The elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
