The message is a false gospel sold and endorsed by evangelicals as a modern Bible.
I always used to check a bible according to John 3:16. let'as look.
first at KJV which most agree is a decently accurate translation.
King James Version (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Now the message
The Message (MSG)
16-18"This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn't go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person's failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.
Now in the message, Jesus is not the only begotton Son. He is the only Son. What does that say about adoption?
Perhaps adoption is no longer needed? This would be the thought pattern of the New Age.
Also What is the promise? No longer is it everlasting life. All it is is "whole and lasting Life"
Can the Satan make this offer? We know that Satan cqan not offer eternal life.
Nottice how the penalty is a "Death sentence" So now the punishment is only death. But doesn't everybody die?
Also nottice the added language "refuse" to believe, when introduced to him. No longer is it necessary to spread the gospel all over the earth. Because people might not go to hell.
This just is not the gospel.
