And think of the controversy that was begun when the
Revised Standard Version of the Bible was suggested as a
replacement for the King James Version.....
Unfortunately...even the RSV was replaced with "Good News"
and other "modernized" versions of the Bible.

As we speak, the "new" Lutheran liturgy...which I finally being replaced by a "new" liturgy.....
Why can't this happen with the Theosopical Society?
