Is it Wrong to read the Bible?

Is it wrong to read the Bible no matter what lanuage it is written in? If you get the same information? Isn't the Holy Bible the Bible, no matter what lanuage? Please Help!

  • Of course it isn't wrong to read the Bible. There are many wonderful versions out there. If you don't like the King James Versions, there are several other versions that are not quite so complicated to read.

  • Nothing wrong with reading the Bible that best helps you understand its content. I have NLV, KJV, NIV, Study Bible, Concordances, etc.... I use them all. I certainly hope the Bible is translated into different languages. Please tell me that someone isn't telling you that you have to read a certain translation?

  • In regards to the NIV; I'm sure that was just a misprint....

    My copy of my NRSV, that is published by Zondervan comes with Guarantee and I quote from my copy "A lifetime warranty applies to defects within the Bible--for example: missing or misplaced pages, chapters, or books. Please return the defective Bible to the original place of purchase for replacement or refund. If this not possible, please go to www.zondervan.com and click on "contact us"

    Then again maybe not....I just went to biblegateway.com and went looking for Mat 17:21 in the NIV text and it was not there, but there for any other text I choose.....

  • Someone says that the NWT is not accurate because it was written for the Jehovahs Witnesses. I find that hard to believe that it wouldn't be for everybody? Help me Pacemyself.

  • The problem with the NWT is that several passages in it are not the "same" as passages from other translations. Not all translations are exactly the same, but the verses to match up to a point. Take example all the different version in regards to John 1:1 More next post.

  • They all pretty much say: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. See: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John%201:1;&version=8;31;9;45;49;

    However with the NWT John 1:1 reads "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the word was a god."


    There is a big difference between "was God" (non-NWT) and "was a god" (NWT).
