I agree. I am also getting tired of people making a profit off of water,
electricity, and food. Didn't god create these things? What right does a
person have to sell them and make a profit on God's creation?

by grace alone,

understand that money had to be involved with the translating/publishing
process, but the fact texts like NIV is "licensed" means profit. I'm
beginning to sway away from such versions and translations and moving
towards public domain texts. I'm doing the same with Windows to Linux. I've
even paid for a distribution just because of the freedoms in the GNU GPL

little rant :-)
