Thread Name: BS: Qu: Regarding Religion
Subject: RE: BS: Qu: Regarding Religion
I don't believe that any more than Michael or his nurse. The point is, Christians are taught to...

The bible is the bible. That it is based on a series of even older scripts is at the same level as the fact that most of the stories in it are borrowed from earlier religions. There is nothing authentic about any of it really, not even tattered texts stored near the Dead Sea. It was compromise and borrow to begin with so not much point in finding a convenient real one, is there? Churches in The UK use KJV in the main and if not, then a version written since.

In English. Oh, and vicars, who buy into it far more than Mudcat's pious idiots, say it is the word of God. Wrong again eh Keith? The big guy with the beard contradicts you (or you him in terms of pecking order eh?)

Oh, and it says thou shalt not kill. Out of interest, the difference between kill and murder is set by secular authorities such as parliament and the judiciary. So it isn't within the brief of churches to distinguish on this moral point in the first place, as they render such matters to Caesar.

"Anyone who cares knows it is a mistranslation." On that basis Keith, 99% of Christians don't care. Your minority hobby just got a whole lot smaller.
