Recently, the Conservative Bible Project has made some headlines. If you are not familiar with the project, it is an attempt to remove liberal biases from the Bible from the folks at Conservapedia. The criteria they use include things like using “powerful conservative terms,” and avoiding wordiness. The thinking is liberals are verbose and obscure. They aim to recast Jesus into their image. While it may easy to poke fun at this exercise, or make a flippant remark about conservatives in general, it says something deeper about our relationship to scripture and Jesus.
