I recently ran across a television interview Brian Simmons did last year with Sid Roth, where he makes a number of startling statements about his Passion Translation–statements showing just how dangerous this so-called Bible translation is.
A few years ago I wrote a four-part series about The Passion Translation–a new NAR translation of the Bible being produced by the NAR apostle Brian Simmons. This series of posts has been among my most read. Since many of my newer readers may not have heard of the Passion Translation, I reprinted Part 1 below.
I regularly receive comments from my readers–some who strongly disagree with me. One comment I received earlier this week came from “Pam,” a follower of Brian Simmons–a NAR leader who has undertaken his own NAR translation of the Bible, called the Passion Translation.
I think we are witnessing a time of leadership transition in the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement. The first-generation NAR leaders–those who formulated the major teachings of the NAR movement–have begun stepping aside and a new generation of apostles and prophets have risen to take their places.
One of the criticisms I hear most is that it is wrong for me to “name names” of people who promote false teaching unless I first go to those teachers in private to address my concerns with them. But is this what the Bible really teaches?
I want to highlight another tactic used by Apostle Brian Simmons to get people to buy his new Bible, The Passion Translation. I call this tactic “secret knowledge.”
Apostle Brian Simmons seems to have a love/hate relationship with scholarship and academic degrees.
