Does it Matter What Bible Translation I Use?

Compare Matthew 26:69-70 in the King James Version and the "Good As New" version, promoted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams.

King James Version: "Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee. But he denied before them all, saying, 'I know not what thou sayest.'"

"Good As New" Version: "Meanwhile Rocky was still sitting in the courtyard. A woman came up to him and said: 'Haven't I seen you with Jesus, the hero from Galilee?' Rocky shook his head and said: 'I don't know what the hell you're talking about.'"

For a discussion of heretical translations that propagate the egalitarian heresy, see this brief editorial from Touchstone.

Perhaps the jokers translating and publishing these "modern" translations should remember the Word of the Lord in Deuteronomy 12:32: "What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it."
