A few indications of the NIV2011...

Here's a list of a few of the additions and deletions and amendments to God's Word contained in the new NIV2011. There are countless similar changes across the Old and New Testaments. The vast majority of them are an effort to gag God in showing His Fatherhood in the affairs of man.

This list is the work of the PCA pastor Andrew Dionne. (TB)

   and who meditates on his law day and night. 
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, 
   which yields its fruit in season 
and whose leaf does not wither— 
   whatever they do prospers.
 4 Not so the wicked! 
   They are like chaff 
   that the wind blows away.

Comments

I appreciate the extent of your Scriptural knowledge. However, I don't think God is as interested as you are in subjugating women.

Do you guys think the constant footnoting of variant readings or interpretations can undermine the authority of the Scriptures?

SR, dear brother, you must realize by now your comment does not even rise to the level of a non sequitur and simply strikes me as demagoguery. A straw man thrown into the well to poison it so those passing by may not drink. Either try as you might to argue these culturally massaged changes to the word of God do not do violence to God's word, or keep the slings and arrows in their quiver.

Providential Blessings;
J.Moore
