There were many translations of the Bible centuries before the English version. Today there are over 450 versions of the Bible. Think about that, 450 different versions of The Bible. Wow. So how are you to know which one is the closest to the original?
I bet in most cases people believe the version of the Bible they grew up with. Strange how people take what they are taught by others and swear it is the truth. The question is though, how do you know your version of the 45o versions of the Bible is the correct one? You don’t.
Lets look at some of the very weird stuff you can find in the most popular Christian version, that of King James. Really take the time to think about these sayings found in the Bible. How many make sense? Not a lot, that’s for sure. The Bible, the book you are to use as a guide you through life. I’m telling you, it’s WEIRD. Really a weird book. Why?
Why because the Bible tell you to KILL others.
If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him.
God said, “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and I CREATE EVIL: I the LORD do all these things.”
“We are wise, for we have the law of the LORD, when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely?’
From Your Bible
So why would God created evil? Weird.
Did you know God sleeps and maybe drinks wine, just like man does ? Me neither. But what else could this passage mean?
It leads one to believe GOD gets drunk and GOD has to sleep.Well…isn’t that what it reads? God isn’t suppose to sleep or drink? Is He? Kind of sounds like a regular man to me.
Did you know you are suppose to be happy when you hurt kids?
“Happy shall he be, that takes and dashes thy little ones against the stones.” Would that make you happy?
If you didn’t know that your God created evil, and your God needs to sleep and maybe drink wine or that He wants you to be happy hurting little kids....what else might not know about your God?
You should try reading your Bible from beginning to end and see the MANY, MANY weird things you will find…and then you too may decide that YOU will do your own
and research and come up with what makes sense to you about the writings, and not based on the handed down ones from an ancient past.
So… You decide what the meanings should be. HOW?
By finding your own meanings for words. Meanings that you choose and not someone else’s interpretation of the word. Try it…it really makes the Bible passages a lot easier to understand.
