It is a Baptist principal, as old as the church itself, that the Scriptures are our sole and final authority. Therefore, translating is necessary, lest we become like the clergy of Tyndale’s day, who thought it better “to be without God’s laws” than for the common people to be able to read the Word of God for themselves in their mother tongue. We must ask, Is it possible to translate accurately? Is it a command of God? Does the Bible say much about translating? You will be encouraged to see in the Bible that the answer to all these questions is, YES! The Bible is the foundation of what we base all our beliefs! But, “if the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Psalm 11:3
