Can't believe I've never posted in this thread, so much bullshit posted about organised religion. I'm an orthodox jew and it's one of the best things in my life, finding god is truly liberating.

For some reason I got this email last week:

On 5 June 2012 20:53, RosalindJ wrote: HI, I have the Holy Bible app through my ipod touch, why did you change the feature that goes directly to the chapter you want. I have to go to the end of a chapter to get to the chapter I need. This is somewhat frustrating.

So I emailed back:

I wrote: Hi Rosalind,

Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience that this may have caused you. The feature change you mention was part of a general update designed to deter the ungodly from abusing the service. I trust that you understand and share our concerns Smiling

God bless,
Rev. G. U. Libel

Just got this reply Laughing out loud

RosalindJ wrote: Hi, no I don't understand anytime an ungodly person attempt to touch the Word of God it is an opportunity for him to intervene. That's just my opinion, you do what's best for your app and I appreciate your response.

The latest instalment:

I wrote: Hello Rosalind,

Thanks so much for your feedback. I have passed your comments on to our technical team.

On another note, we have been wondering whether a more modern Bible might attract more to the faith and I have been asking those using our app, like yourself, to let us know if you think it's a good idea?

We are thinking of updating the language, for example from John, the original "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world!" would become "Look, here's God's son and he's going to take the rap for you all!" and another one that the development team came up with was again from John: "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" would become "Sign up with Jesus or you're not going to heaven".

What do you think?

God bless,
Rev. G. U. Libel
