    From the Forward of The Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures:

    The Forward starts on page 7 with these words: "The original writings of the Christian Greek Scriptures, commonly called "The New Testament," were inspired. No translation of these sacred writings into another language, except by the original writers , is inspired."

    Page 8: "No uninspired translator or committee of translators can claim any direct command from the Most High God to engage in translating the divine Word into another language."

    Page 9: "In presenting this translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures our confidence has been in the help of the great Author of The Book. Our primary desire has been to seek , not the approval of men, but that of God, by rendering the truth of his inspired Word as purely and as consistently as our consecrated powers make possible."

    Great stuff, Thinker. I have that book right here but would never have read the Forward in a million years. Those are some powerful quotes. It's a keeper, as they say. Thanks for pointing this out.
