The Message “Bible” removes salvation from Romans 10:13

Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the author of lies. (John 8:44, NASB)

The Message “Bible” is the unholy gift that keeps on giving the gift of spiritual deception. Millions of copies have been sold, and many in the visible church use The Message as their primary “Bible.”

And so we come to Romans 10:13. Let’s first look at the KJV and NASB translations:

For whosover shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. (KJV)

for “whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (capitalized in NASB)

Here is The Message version of Romans 10:13:

“Everyone who calls ‘help God!’ gets help.” (The Message)

There is a vast difference between being helped and being saved. The Message “Bible” strikes again.
