    A little research yields this pro-gay information on the buying company's Managing Partner:

    If this deal goes through, three guesses as to the type of literature one of the largest Christian publishers in the world will be producing in the Name of Jesus Christ.

    Thanks LE. First Zondervan and Murdock, and now this. If the foundations are destroyed, how will the righteous stand? The Word is foundational.

    I missed where the article said Satan was going to control Thomas Nelson Publishers. Is this the correct thread?

    The question was asked, C4K. If the gay agenda ends up controlling Thomas Nelson, that's sure what I'd call it.

    You really think the "gay agenda" controlling a publisher is the same as Satan doing so?

    I think Satan is a much worse and much stronger enemy than the "gay agenda."

    Thing is, satan controls anything that is not of God.

    Whether it is the gay agenda, drug rings, car jackings, etc. Satan is behind them all.

    I think LE is not amiss in using the word 'satan' in the thread's title

    Of course, the article isn't going to say "Satan to control Thomas Nelson Publishing"--1 Peter 5:8 says it all.

    The sky is falling, the sky is falling! The only thing Nelson is worried about is making money, that is the only agenda they have. It ain't about sex it's about money.

    So why not use the title in every thread?

    Does Satan control the war in Iraq?

    I think the title was way OTT. Satan controls Thomas Nelson because one managing partner received an award from a gay group?

    Over-sensationalism folks - lets come back to earth.

    You beat me....anyhow:

    1Ti 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

    Er...not yet. The stockholders are upset according to reports. The deal hasn't gone through yet. It's not too late to write Thomas Nelson (at the link posted above, under contact) and voice your concerns.

    Sorry, C4K, you and I will just have to agree to disagree on this one. And yes, Satan does control the war in Iraq apparently, from what I'm reading in the news.

    Maybe I should have titled the thread: "Selling out to Satan...." a better choice of words, perhaps.

    To that I might agree.

    This thread could be taken pretty far.

    Our president has a long record of appointing homosexuals to positions - would we say he is controlled by Satan?

    "Selling out to Satan ..." would fit much better.

    Only in the most general sense, C4K. Nelson was a public company, which means that any pagan, apostate or antichrist was free to own stock in the company and, ultimately, decide how it was run.

    The influence of Hindery remains to be seen. Investors tend not to deliberately kill the goose that lays the golden egg, though it's been done. I would suppose that if Nelson no longer prints the Bibles that people want, people will stop buying them.

    He's also a former NASCAR driver: Can we assume that Nelson will introduce a line of Moonshine-and-Cleavage Bibles?

    I suspect that the Moonshine and Cleavage Bibles would become very popular. [​IMG]

    OK, I missed out: What's the complaint about Zondervan?

    Zondervan (which publishes the NIV) is a part of HarperCollins, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation. Apparently the guy who gives us the Truth on Faux News can't be trusted to sell Bibles.

    I think we give Satan far too much credit, and handcuff the Lord Jesus more than we can. The Lord is still on His throne and in control. If we spent as much time honouring Him as we like to give to commercial ventures, we would enjoy more fruit for our labours.

    Cheers,

    Jim
