I would be interested in knowing what Chapter 8 says. I don't know how well it is translated, but I agree with the basic point. The law gives sin something to rebel against; without it, sin lies dormant. It forces sin to the surface.

Re: The Mirror bible- anyone read it got it?
It is important to know that it is recognised as a paraphrase.

It is worth looking at the people behind the book. The book itself originates at Mirror Bible. The people behind it can be found at Mirror Word.

The emphasis that comes out may perhaps be captured by the statement, "You're a swan! not an upgraded ugly duckling!" I may be being unfair, but there seems to be too strong an emphasis on how great I am, rather than on 'Christ in me the hope of glory'. It reminds me of a book I have not read entitled, "Your best life now."

As I said this is from a cursory reading so I may be being totally unfair.

Kind regards

I remember that song. Makes me want to get on a plane and head back over.

As to the translation, I think it does try to liken sin to a disease or maybe more specifically a virus (like HIV).
