Re: But isn't it flawed from it's inception?
03/25/11 02:22 AM


By saying something is flawed, or in this case - I'll presume you're implying there is a large difference between certain versions - that they essentially contradict each other...?

Is this what you're implying? (any examples?)

Or would it be that, although there may be technical differences in translation of texts, where one verse of scripture would say one thing in one version, while in another version -using the same verse- it says the same thing, just a different way?

As in; not to say something different, but to reinforce an idea.



What about Christians in other countries where expressing one's faith isn't as freely accepted/tolerated as it is here in America? Take China, Africa, or various places in the Middle East - where... (not going to make this an emotional matter and just say) terrible things happen, even if you're found carrying a Bible, let alone having a congregation 'busted'. They may not have as great a knowledge or resources to the Word, but their Love and hunger for it is... well... most likely greater than most of us (Christians) here in America. Does that make them any less of a worthy Christian?

The point is; God sees the heart and is the only worthy to judge someone, regardless of what version/"translation" they've had access to God had made available to them.


eta: Regarding differences in versions. Not everyone can read Greek, ancient Hebrew, or whatever. So a translation is needed. The questions are!... Which translation is closest to the original texts? Which adds/changes, and which takes away? What are the purposes of having done so? Is it lessen confusion, or is it to misdirect from it's intended meaning?

Conclusion. Personally, I'd stick with the (translated) version that has been around the longest. Assuming that other versions are variations of the KJV. So....
