[quote=Wormwood]Well I can tell you more than a few people that DON’T bring it up. I heard someone say the book of tobit…I asked what bible they were talking about…to my surprise…christian…catholic even.
That is kind of a lot to edit eh? Now I have to get a new bible, you guys no my weakness…you could say anything you wanted if you quoted from those books. It was in the book of tobit…tobit 14:3 i believe…and the lord said, agnostics will be next to the furnace in hell…I wouldn’t know the difference…This will not do!!
I’m not even christian and I’m angry! (that is kind of a strange statement ) What kind of reasoning would they have used to edit the bible 1500 years later? Can you do that? Ok I am also tossing Deuteronomy, Job, Daniel, Kings, Corinthians, Amos, Psalms, and parts of Luke I don’t like, and starting my own church…anyone with me? Our church can be founded on " a better understanding, through less information".
What a wonderful example of ignorance this thread has developed into! Let’s all laugh at the Protestant Bible, in the name of Christ! Hee hee, haw haw! Give me a break…
For your information, the “editing” didn’t happen 1500 years later. The differences lie in the “official” Jewish version of the Scriptures, which were revised around 100 A.D., to NOT include some of the books found in the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the Jewish Scriptures. It is the official Jewish Scriptures that the Protestants have based their Bibles on, while the Catholics have based theirs on the Septuagint, which, as I stated above, has more Books.
Since we would all agree that the whole of Christianity has its roots in Judaism, could it be, just maybe, that the Protestants have it right, since their Bible is based on the “official” Jewish canon?
Hee haw, hee haw!
