What if a baby formula company announced they had created a baby formula that smelled better, tasted better, and came in a variety of flavors guaranteed to appeal your baby?
What if it was discovered that, in order to make this formula more palatable, critical, life giving nutrients had been deleted and replaced with useless, even harmful ingredients--yet the formula company continues to claim that the most important thing about the formula is that it tastes good? Don't worry, they say, that your baby will be malnourished and not develop properly on this good-tasting formula. Don't worry that your baby may even die. The most important thing to focus on, they insist, is that your baby will like this formula.
This is the bill of goods being sold to Christians today concerning Bible versions. And it seems they are swallowing it--hook, line and sinker.
