The Consider Podcast does not rely upon ink and paper.

  • You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. (2 Corinthians 3:3)

The Consider Podcast is not about letters and numbers inked on paper that are sold for $19.95. Nor is The Consider Podcast about endless “scriptural” discussions punched out on a computer keyboard. Rather, The Consider Podcast strives, strains, and suffers for the Holy Spirit to be in all.

  • He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant–not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. (2 Corinthians 3:6)

The Living Word of God is Jesus, period. Ink on paper labeled “Bible” must be inspired to be of any spiritual value.  Only those hating their own life, picking up a cross and following Jesus in their Bible reading gain understanding. This is why Paul wrote down, about what he wrote down, which we now call the Bible: The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.

NIV 1978 Version

New Testament NIV 1978


The Consider Podcast primarily, but not exclusively, uses the 1978 New International Version.

The 1978 NIV Bible translation is one of the best. The 1978 version usage of English words reflect their strong points rather than the current NIV, which has for sales whitewashed the language. The 1978 NIV applied first word definitions to the translation rather than the current loosely applied, could be used this way, word meaning.

In the future, The Consider Podcast will explore this issue and the tremulous history I have faced for using the NIV.

Basic Information

The NIV 1978 translation is one of the most solidly word defined, concise, and clear easily preached from Bibles. NIV timeline.

The New International Version (NIV) is a widely used translation of the Bible. It was first published in 1978 by the International Bible Society (now Biblica) and Zondervan.

The NIV is a revision of the Revised Standard Version (RSV), which was published in 1952. The goal of the NIV translation team was to create a more modern and readable translation of the Bible, while remaining faithful to the original languages.

The NIV translation was completed in just six years, with over 100 scholars and advisors from various denominations and backgrounds involved in the process. The translation was reviewed and revised several times before its final publication.

The NIV has become one of the most popular translations of the Bible, with over 500 million copies sold worldwide. It is often used in churches, Bible studies, and other Christian settings.

In 2011, the NIV was updated to the NIV 2011 edition, which included compromised language and added confusion to the text. In 2020, a new edition called the NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible was released, which includes extensive notes and articles on the historical and cultural context of the Bible. Thus, one can keep on avoiding obedience by way of a crucified life and engage in meaningless religious talk. James warned that Bible study in and of itself is a deception to avoid: Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. (James 1:22)

In 1978, when the NIV was first published, the following English language Bibles were available:

King James Version (KJV)
American Standard Version (ASV)
Revised Standard Version (RSV)
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
New English Bible (NEB)
Jerusalem Bible (JB)
New King James Version (NKJV)
New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
Today’s English Version (TEV)
Good News Bible (GNB)
New International Version (NIV)

The explosion of stylized Bibles and differing versions available in 2022 is astounding.

This explosion of Bibles and Jesus junk has only produced wholesale disobedience and greater rebellion against the living Word of God.

  • The more the priests increased, the more they sinned against me; they exchanged their Glory for something disgraceful. They feed on the sins of my people and relish their wickedness. (Hosea 4:7-8)

Post #2764

The Consider Podcast knows what it is to fear God. It is time for all men and women to repent. It is time for the Christian church to repent of its Bible corruptions and together with non-believers to obey the Full Gospel Message of repentance. Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade men. (2 Corinthians 5:11). He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy. (Proverbs 28:13) With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” (Acts 2:40) “Go, stand in the temple courts,” he said, “and tell the people the full message of this new life.” (Acts 5:20) Let us all repent of ignorance concerning the matter of a holy life. In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. (Acts 17:30) The full gospel message can be found at
