Will you be honest enough to acknowledge that every reader, every translator, every biblical scholar does this, ever time they read the Bible?<quoted text>
I don't think you have actually read the bible not understand it. You can twist anything you want and slant it to sound as you wish but if you read the bible you would get your answers. I don't need to debate what it says because you will interpret things the way you want them to sound.
Every person who has picked up any translation throughout it's long history has done this.
That's why we do not run or Government by the Bible. If we did, we would have to decide which version, which translation, and which interpretation was "correct".
And EVERYONE would believe that it was their own interpretation.
