Fake Translation of the Week--Ephesians 5:8-12

(Real translation here)

In order for these churches that do series like "The Gospel According to The Beatles" or "Vegas Night" to be biblical, this is how a certain passage of Scripture would have to read (altered text in bold italics).

Ephesians 5:8-12--For you were once unpopular, but now people are coming in record numbers. Walk as though you are still in the world (for the fruit of your acceptance by the world is in your growing bank account, your successful programs, and shrinking away from the truth), finding out what is acceptable to the world. And take part in the works of darkness--which bring more people in the door--and do not expose them, lest you make people feel uncomfortable. For it is shameful to speak out against those things which are done by them, seeing as how you may offend them.
