Reading Bible at public school ignites controversy

The students at Brown Primary School in Smithville were reciting in unison a paraphrase of Romans 12:9-10 from The Message Bible, reported the Fox TV affiliate in Austin.

“Love from the center of who you are; don’t fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle,” the passage reads.

The teacher, Susan Schobel, wrote on Facebook in a message posted with the video: “Start your day with a good Bible verse and life just seems better!! This is our daily Bible verse.”

Some parents with children at the school protested to the Smithville Independent School District, the Austin American-Statesman reported. ...

I have never understood the idea of the message. The Living bible of the 1970’s was a big deal in the 1970’s . But then the NASB came out in 1971, and that was a big deal. We used to get all excited about a “ new” bible translation. Now one shows up and yawns. No matter how common the translation, doesn’t erase biblical illiteracy. A bible that cannot be memorized, isn’t worth the paper it’s primed on.

“God is sheer being itself - Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration."

This is John 4:24 out of the message “Bible”

The Message "bible" is not the Bible; it's just a horrible, vulgar hack-job, counterfeit version of it.

What Doc?!? No Krispy Kreme donut or chili/cheese/slaw dog with onion rings and a frosted orange from the Varsity. I thought Southerns were supposed to be hospitable to them foreigners from Yankee land who only come for a spell.

Kenny, maybe we just need to be more hospitable to Jim. You know, take him out to eat at the Big Chicken. Sit with him and watch a Thunderbirds airshow at Dobbins AFB. Treat him to hot dogs and Coke at the new Braves stadium. And then if he still acts like a heel, throw him in the Chattahoochee River.

This may be the first time I've ever known of Jim Lincoln to actually add something useful to a SA conversation.
The problem isn't the Bible (although The Message is hardly a Bible) in the government schools. The problem is that there are Christian parents who care no more about their children than to send them into these statist monstrosities.

Just saw the people will know the what the Bible verses should actually look like, It is a very Christian message❗

Romans 12
9 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.
10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.---ESV

What was the biggest controversy, that they were reciting a Bible verse or reciting from The Message rather than a literal translation?
