Hello Dolly (I know, surely you get that a lot.).<quoted text>Romans 12:2..Be ye not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable, and perfect will of God. No His word has never changed , He got it right the first time. People have changed. If you were smart you would know new versions are abundant. The Elizabethan English has been changed to more modern English. BTW.. FYI the Bible has no problem . The problem lies within you.
Yea verily, thou witnesseth the word whereof I spake.(Sorry, my 17th century English skills are pretty bad.)
Which reminds me of a question I have that you may be able to answer. Why speak modern English except when talking religion? Lots of folks seem to do this and Ive always wondered why. It happens even though there are modern translations of the Bible, as you have noted. Is it kind of like speaking hip hop when in the hood, but not in the suburbs?
I agree that the problem is not that the Bible is trapped in time, as are all written publications. The problem is to cling to interpretations that are trapped in the same time frame. The books of the Bible were written centuries ago and some English translations are more modern than others.
When you say the problem lies in me, do you mean that the problem is that I dont necessarily interpret the Bible as hey did centuries ago? Just curious, because the assertion sounds like copy for a bumper sticker., like WWJD or The Bible says it, I believe it and thats that.
