  • Yes there are different translations of the bible. But of all the translations only a few minor words are translated different. That is why I go to a Greek or Hebrew lexicon to look at the original intent of a word. Of all the translations there are no differences in salvation matters, just history matters

  • When you study or do your research get a dictionary and thesaurs and look up the words you have problems with the different translations.

  • Only one problem? ;) Which bibles are you talking about? Different translations or different bibles? I agree of all the translations there are actually no differences on any of the core/major doctrines of Christianity.

  • This is a QUESTION and ANSWER section. NOT a Debate section.  Why dont you go look in groups for one that will argue and debate all this religious stuff with you.  You are REALLY starting to seem like a troll.......Thats someone who posts controversial things just to start trouble.  There are LOTS of groups for debating this stuff.  This is the QUESTIONS and ANSWERS section. NOT a Debate section!

  • you ahve to understand that the bible was written by men who were basically ignorant when compared to us today. they had no knowledge that the earth was round or even so big. they had no idea what a comet was or a volcano really. then these texts were translated into different languages by different people. some words may not have translated well. the bible is a guide. one i beleive is gods' word, but its god[s word told by man. some stuff is gonna get messed up in translation.

  • The bible, like all religious texts is a book of mythology and, like all mythology, is open to the interpretation of the translator or adapter. Why are Greek, Roman, Egyptian,and other myths different in every adaption? That's the nature of myths.
