Re: But isn't it flawed from it's inception?

Yes, there are massive glaring examples where a single word translated or interpreted changed the entire course of Christianity.

Just one for discussion: In translating Hebrew to English...

In English versions of the Bible, it says that a virgin will bear a son (for example Isaiah 7:14). In the original scripture, however, the word used to describe Mary was "almah". According to the Strong's Concordance it means, "young woman 1a) of marriageable age 1b) maid or newly married." Therefore, the word "almah" does not always mean virgin. Additionally, there is a specific Hebrew word for virgin "bethulah". If the scriptures were meant to mean specifically virgin instead of young maiden, then why wasn't the word "bethulah" used here? The church declared her a virgin at the Counsel of Trent in 1545 AD because that would avoid any question that Mary was free from Original Sin, immaculate, as was Jesus clean of this sin. But for more than 1000 years Christianity merely accepted her as a young woman. Modern Christianity takes without question that Mary was a virgin, in part because those Christians that refused to accept this inturpretation after the Counsel of Trent were systematically persecuted as heretics and executed into extinction. When the Bible was translated into English, by choice, this ambiguity was dealt away with by choosing the word "virgin" over the closer more accurate translation of "maiden."

The genocide of Christians who refused to accept this translation is yet another example of bloodshed over interpretation and translation.
