History behind the NAPSV
I 'became a Christian' on July 4th, 1979, and was baptized on December 30th,
my spiritual journey in sequence by clicking here.) Way back in
the early 1980's, I got sick and tired and bored with reading the Bible. (Hey,
doesn't it say to confess your sins one to another? For the other side of the
coin, keep reading!)
I was unable to regain the deep desire for reading it, in part, because I had already
read EIGHT different English language translations cover to cover, taking notes
and highlighting as I went. I felt I had read
enough! (You can bet I was very unpopular with those that believed I was deep in sin!) Well, it turns out that it was only a step towards something else that
God was calling me toward.
I am multi-lingual, (in fact, I have had conversations with people in at least eight
different languages, and on five different continents, in person) and have been bi-lingual from home. I knew the
limitations of reading the Bible only in English and wanted more. I wanted to know the Author and His intentions and
desires better. So God moved my heart to buy
an Apple //e computer with AppleWorks software so that I could ... paraphrase the entire
New Testament into my own words. I used several English versions as my starting point.
Once I finished that three-year long project, I also did Proverbs. I never intended and do
not intend to ever publish that work. In fact, the only part of it that which
survived the computer changes over the years is
1st Corinthians, Chapter Seven. It is on
this site as the last page of my presentation on divorce.
The whole project was a
very personal study which took me over three years and was finished back in 1984 or 1985.
That isn't the end of the story. I must confess while
I love scripture, I love the Author more. Yes, author, singular. I
believe that God used dozens of people over thousands of year to assemble the Bible. It is
a wondrous document. It is more than we realize, and like it's Author, it is much more than we can
imagine or conceive. Others research awesome and fascinating things like the
Bible code, or the ultimate fulfillment of prophecy upon the return of the Lord.
I have even come to realize that the Greek Mythology is based on Noah
and his family!
I have found that personalizing scripture to an individual's
specific need at the time of their life, is as powerful as any wonder
drug ever found on the market. I have been a leader on dozens of
spiritual weekend retreats and used scripture powerfully to heal
hearts. Several such projects are listed above. The list below doesn't link to articles,
but to a personalized piece of scripture, which I call "NAPSV". Instead of being
generic, these are individualized, written to a
These are great up lifters and gifts for people. I know, because that's
what started them years ago, before the Internet. I repeat,
THESE ARE POWERFUL when completed! But they are NOT free.
All I ask, is that once you give them to someone, that you give the value of their
reaction to a charity. (If the receiver doesn't like it at all, you are off the hook!)
Give to a charity to which God wants you to give. Which one is that? Check
which one your heart wants to give to, it's probably that one.
Whenever I re-write, or re-paraphrase scripture for this project,
I call it the APSV. Once it stood for the APS (those are my initials)
