Is the main Bible you read The Message? If so this article has some very valid points. Personally, I think the writer is being very charitable because I cannot stand the message. It’s generous even calling a paraphrase, let alone a translation. It is commentary on the Bible by Eugene Peterson, nothing more. There are many, many times that The Message claims something very different than what the Bible says.
