As some of you know, there is a MacAthur NIv study Bible. I don't have it. But in the past he has come down strongly against both the older TNIV and the curent NIV. It's ironic because he uses inclusive terminology in his commentaries (as does Wayne Grudem). There was a paper than came out in 2002 by David W. Miller. I don't think it is accessible these days. You'll have to check because my internet access is blocked to a number of Christian sites. But I do have a part of a paper he wrote defending the TNIV. It's called The Improved Gender Accuracy of the TNIV Over The NIV. Miller did the research, I'm just reporting it. "Here is a list of his [MacArthur's] gender-neutral phrases from his commentary on Romans 8:14-15 where he interprets 'son(s)' as 'child' or as 'children' or as 'boy or girl' (The Macarthur New Testament Commentary Romans 1-8 ,pp.429-37). 'believers are eternally related to Him as His children' (p 429) 'can be certain he is God's child' (p 430) 'God's children are secure in Him' (p. 431) 'a child of God will not always feel secure' (p. 431) 'even for the obedient child of God' (p. 431) 'our heavenly Father wants His children to be certain' (p. 431) 'Even the child of God cannot discern' (p. 431) 'God's Spirit sovereignly leads His children in many ways' (p. 431) 'God leads His children by illumination' (p. 431) 'even God's own children' (p. 433) 'the Spirit leads God's children' (p. 433) 'The humble child of God knows' (p. 433) 'our Heavenly Father's great desire for His children (p. 434) 'our adoption as God's children' (p. 434) 'Because God's children share in flesh and blood' (p. 434) 'permanently adopted as children of God' (p. 435) 'adoption...the action by which a husband and wife decide to take a boy or girl' (p.435) 'the adopted child attains all the rights' (p.435) 'God...seeks out unworthy men and women...and makes them His children' (p. 436) 'an adopted child, especially an adopted son' (p. 436) 'According to Roman law, a father's rule over his children was absolute' (p. 436) 'believers...are indeed God's adopted children' (p. 437) 'just as every child does to his eartly father.' (p. 437) 'In Him...we become a true child (p. 437) 'being God's adopted children was clearly understood' (p.437) 'chose every believer to be His beloved and eternal child' (p. 437) "From the many quotes above, it is clear that MacArthur believes that gender-netral terms like 'children of God' are the correct interpretation of 'sons of God.' It seems odd that someone with such a strong and repetitive gender-neutral interpretation of 'sons' as 'children' would be against a translation that merely clarifies such an interpretation."
