God is Creator. His laws are the protocols that the cosmos is actually built to operate upon. Like law of gravity, laws of health, and law of love, which is the principle of giving. This design of giving is seen in nature, with every breath we give away CO2 and the plants give back oxygen to us. This is God’s design of love built into the fabric of reality. Unlike other Bible translations, which view the text through the lens of a legal problem, with humanity being in legal trouble with God for breaking imposed rules, this paraphrase approaches interpretation through this lens of design law and views humanity as being in a condition deviant from God's design and in need of healing and restoration. Thus this paraphrase consistently represents God as healer battling against all forces that damage and destroy.

The Remedy for a Sin Sick Soul
14 yrs in private church schools; since a toddler, weekly SS lessons followed by church service...you would think I would personally know both the will & love of God after 63yrs.! NEVER have I found the peace of God that passes all understanding until ‘The Remedy!’ His Spirit teaches, speaking directly to the 💔.
Inspiring, amazing, wonderful, awesome!
I’m not proud to admit that I had never read through the Bible before, yet I have been a Christian my entire life. I think the reason was mostly because the Bible can be kind of an intimidating book to read (the language, the hidden meanings, etc.). When I went through some hard times in my life, I decided to devote some time to diving into The Remedy NT Bible Paraphrase. I found myself really truly enjoying reading this version and I continued to read every day even after the troubles in my life had been resolved. Now that I am almost finished reading the entire New Testament, I can’t say enough good things about this paraphrase. I absolutely LOVE The Remedy NT Bible Paraphrase!! And I continue to open it every day! The preface tells you about how it is written intentionally to re-orient the Christian mind to God’s character of love and that is exactly what it does!! It definitely deserves the 5 stars I have given it! I also recommend the physical copy (which I have also been reading from and marking up with all kinds of underlining and such) and which can be purchased on Amazon. I hope you find this Paraphrase to be as eye-opening, wonderful, and amazing as I have found it to be!
