About Those Who Work on the Modern Literal Version

We are a group of Christians who believe the Word of God was God-breathed but only when it is translated properly into English. Everyone who has ever worked on the MLV have about the same story to tell which includes one of more of the following statements:
  1. They studied their way to be here.
  2. They always were seeking a purer Word of God, closer to the Koine Greek, than what was available to them before finding the MLV.
  3. They found issues with their current 'favorite' translation.  Some took off to learn Greek, some started revising their translations more in line with what the Greek really says. Some attempted to use many translation but found some of the same issue spread across all of them.
  4. They found major doctrinal issues with the translations that they were using directly tied back to those who made it, i.e. a government, a church, a publishing company, or someone in it for 'money's sake'.
  5. They had their fill of bible versions that were made from corrupt texts or corrupt textual thinking and minimal use of all the Greek texts. 
  6. They wanted to do more than 3.5 hrs. a week and were willing to give up 'things' to help.
  7. They wanted a translation that could grow, be readable by all Christians, expand to other reference books.
Now with all that, we have found that most all of us are from non-denominational or independent denominational churches because they are the ones who believe the Bible is a rule book not just a guide book. Other than the Mormons & Jehovah Witnesses, all major groups have contributed in some way or another.

Most would think that this much diversity would lead an even more impure translation, it has been the exact opposite. Until 2017, no one ever tried to put his favorite theologian's believe in the MLV (head coverings). All who would try know it will be discarded by anyone who would read it later, so they don't waste their time trying.
