But whatever the reason

New American Standard Bible drops 'Palestine'

Now this is interesting.

A recent article on WND tells of a one word change.

Now you might think -- one word? -- why is that important?

Well, they may have made other changes in the New American Standard Bible (the well known and popular NASB)  but the one described in the article is a significant change.

What is it? you ask

Well, apparently the work 'Palestine' has been removed and another word / phrase has replaced it.

What?  Why?  What difference does the changing of one word make?

Well, the article to which we are linking explains.

Today is GroundHog day

It is that long awaited day when we supposedly find out if the brrrrrrr cold of winter will continue or if we can anticipate the warmer days of Spring.

Bottom line: If Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow,

alas winter will continue for 6 more weeks.

But, if he does not see his shadow, then winter will soon end and he leaves his burrow for the anticipated soon coming spring weather.

Hmmm. Interesting.
