4817Re: Why so many versions?
- Aug 5, 2002Well James, that's a good question.
I suppose we could take the "Jack Chick" route and say that there are
so many versions because THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IS PURPOSELY
TRYING TO CORRUPT THE WORD OF GOD,
I happen to believe that many, if not all, of the mainline
translations (as opposed to the junk put out by guys like Joseph
Smith) exist because some people honestly believe they are better
translations from the "oldest and the best" manuscripts. Of course,
what people intend to do, and what they end up doing, are not always
the same thing.
Other translations, I suppose, exist because 1) We have grown to
stupid as a society to follow the King's English, and 2) we think the
Bible(s) that we do have are not quite good enough to reach teens,
women, African-Americans, husband's who don't keep their "promises",
etc., so we need to keep cranking out Bibles that are personalized
That's my take at the moment,
