2011 NIV

The new NIV translation of the Bible has some changes related to some of the verses about homosexuality, according to Christianity Today. First Corinthians chapter six, verse nine went from using "homosexual offenders" in the 1984 version to "men who have sex with men." The translators hoped to clarify whether the verse referred to any kind of homosexual activity or only certain kinds of ‘offensive’ homosexual activity. First Timothy chapter one, verse ten has the word “perverts” in the 1984 version, but was changed to “those practicing homosexuality” in the 2011 edition. Southern Baptists have called the new version "untrustworthy." Read more about the changes here.
