hahah i got his exerpt from this website: greatsite.com/timeline-english-bible-history/index.html
*“By the 1580’s, the Roman Catholic Church saw that it had lost the battle to suppress the will of God: that His Holy Word be available in the English language. In 1582, the Church of Rome surrendered their fight for “Latin only” and decided that if the Bible was to be available in English, they would at least have an official Roman Catholic English translation. And so, using the corrupt and inaccurate Latin Vulgate as the only source text, they went on to publish an English Bible with all the distortions and corruptions that Erasmus had revealed and warned of 75 years earlier. Because it was translated at the Roman Catholic College in the city of Rheims, it was known as the Rheims New Testament (also spelled Rhemes). The Douay Old Testament was translated by the Church of Rome in 1609 at the College in the city of Douay (also spelled Doway & Douai). The combined product is commonly referred to as the “Doway/Rheims” Version. In 1589, Dr. William Fulke of Cambridge published the “Fulke’s Refutation”, in which he printed in parallel columns the Bishops Version along side the Rheims Version, attempting to show the error and distortion of the Roman Church’s corrupt compromise of an English version of the Bible.”
thats kinda funny because i compared the Douay-Rheims to the KJV and they are really the same thing. The Douay-Rheims flows a lot better imo, but thats all personal preference.
you can criticize me, just about a month ago i was on here contemplating coming back to the catholic church, criticizing the pope.
in the last month i have learned a lot. a ton. and while ill live my full life looking into the catholic church ill never know close to everything. i understant that. thats what makes my faith to God shown through the acts and pracitices given to the catholic church from Peter who got his orders from Jesus, so amazing.
but i have learned this…the faith and roots of the catholic church is where its at. throughout history every thing has been tainted by those who havent praciticed what they preach. not just the catholic church, every thing in this world.
while one can argue certain people in the catholic church are corrupt ONE CAN NEVER say the FUNDAMENTAL BELIEF OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS CORUPT.
i expect a real good answer from someone as to what grounds the Douay Rheims and Vulgate is corrupt…instead im probably just gonna get 3000 different half-a** answers from 3000 different denominations created by man, on why its corrupt.
i find it funny. all these claims from websites, all these claims from “evangelists” (who dont realize an evangelists job is to spread the word of God, not interpret it)
as much as i dont believe most of what the Most Holy Family preaches on vatican 2* (i dont like how they attack the v2, but i do think the v2 needs to stand alittle more firm on what they believe)*, id love to see a protestant go after them.
oh thats right, one did and they basically had the roof crash in (just listen to videos on the page of the debate)
