Ozzy,"Brother Jose Vintilacion uses only the Catholic Version with regards to verses correctly translated!!! He uses other translations if the Catholic Version of a verse or verses is/are incorrect or conflicts with biblical facts!!!"
BWAHAHAHAA what I said in the beginning! INC will use Catholic authority when it suits their needs only! Iglesia ni Manalo cant stand on its own! BWHAHAHAA Thanks for agreeing with me, dumbass!
Roman Catholic translators had tampered the Bible because of doctrinal bias!!! Thus, it is not unusual for an Iglesia ni Cristo minister to use other translations in order to achieve the desired truth!!!
How, then, are we to know which particular translation of the Bible to use, for example in delivering a sermon? Apostle Paul states the guiding principle to the doctrines of the Bible, thus:
"This is what we speak, not in words taught by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words." (I Cor.2:13, New International version)
Therefore, there must be no contradiction between the different version of the Bible because spiritual things are compared to spiritual truths. But one may ask, "Who is in a position to compare spiritual things to spiritual truths?" Are all preachers that we see and hear nowadays are qualified to compare spiritual things with spiritual truths, more so preach the gospel? Apostle Paul answers us, thus:
"And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written:'How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!" (Rom. 10:15, New King James Version)
A preacher of the Gospel therefore must be sent by God. Why must he be sent by God? Apostle John states, thus:
"The one whom God has send speaks God's words, because God gives him the fullness of his Spirit.(John 3:34, Today's English Version)
Moreover, the messenger sent by God is entrusted with the ministry and message of reconciliation (II Cor. 5:18-20).
Therefore, even if there are translations of the Bible that contain mistranslated verses, the commissioned preachers of God can identify them because they have been given God's spirit for them to understand His will written in the Bible (I Cor. 2:12).
