How Does the SDA Clear Word Bible Compare to God's Word?

Here the Bible starts out emphasizing the fact that God is a Spirit. For whatever reason the SDA Clear Word Bible totally omits that fact, and instead focuses on our spiritual lives. For whatever reason the SDA Clear Word Bible finds it important to inform us that God is not concerned ... about where we worship Him.

Interestingly while it makes sure to inform us that God is not concerned about where we worship Him, it fails to also mention that God is not concerned about when we worship Him.

Is it really this hard to write a good paraphrase? What a strange mixture of thought!

John 4:24 (King James Version)

24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

 

 

John 4:24 (New International Version)

24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.

John 4:24 (SDA Clear Word Bible)

24 God is very much concerned about our spiritual lives and how honest and sincere we are, not about where we worship Him.

TCW completely eliminates that God is spirit (Ellen said He had a body). It eliminates the fact that we have spirits that must worship Him. It completely eviscerates the meaning of that text!!
