The Recovery Version
of the Bible
is published the Living Stream Ministry
, the publishing arm of the Local Church
which, theologically, is a cult of Christianity
The Recovery Version is controversial in large part because of its extensive footnotes, which promote Local Church theology.
The Bibles had been identified
as Recovery Version New Testaments which are published by the Living Stream Ministry
, the publishing-arm of the Local Church movement. The extensive footnotes written by Witness Lee and the Scripture text found in this edition are supportive of the beliefs and practices of the movement. Footnotes from the Book of Revelation state that denominational groups are spiritual fornicators for taking on names other than that of Christ (Baptist, Presbyterian, Anglican, etc), that Christianity is degraded for taking on these denominational names, that denominational groups are the harlot daughters of the Whore of Babylon, and that Protestantism
, Roman Catholicism
, and Judaism
have become an organization used by Satan as a tool to damage God's economy (a la Lee).
