A disagreement between some prisoners and their chaplain

A member of the TBS Auxiliary for Wessex in the UK recently shared with us a very interesting account of a disagreement between some prisoners and their chaplain which he witnessed some years ago:

At a prison where a Committee member attended a Bible study, there was some opposition to the Authorised Version from one of the chaplains, who said it was out of date and used archaic language, but two prisoners put up a defence.

 One said, “You need to understand something. What you will find with the Authorised Version is that things are not left out of it just because it is not politically correct to say them. This version is very direct about sin, hell and the justice of God”.

Another said, “I want to tell you something. If God speaks to you through His Word, He will speak to you in your own language, whatever that language may be, because He will speak to your heart”. He accentuated this by beating his hand on his chest.

The whole room went silent. There was nothing else for anyone to say!
