No proof?
This is what the buy-bull says. Anybody can look it up.
Genesis 1:5: "And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day."
And there we have night and day. It's clearly not just a "period of time" as some funides will excuse. It mentions light and darkness as day and night.
God doesn't make the sun until Genesis 1:16:
"And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also."
"In six days"

Exodus 20:11 (NASB)
11 "For IN SIX DAYS the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.

"degrading passions" "men abandoned the natural function of the woman" "men with men" "depraved mind"

Romans 1

Romans 1:26-29 (NASB)
26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips,

Sure it does. However we know it isn't infallible, and keep it in context.

Most bibles are a good starting point. They should naturally lead to questions. Questions are addressed via prayer. Prayer is more important than the remnants of truth we call "a bible" today.

People like you need it to be neat and clean, so you have no responsibility to think for yourself. But that is a cop out and the easy way out, and hardly spiritually nourishing. It leaves you stuck at square one with little potential for growth or understanding - or a real and consequential prayerful relationship with God.

Very little in the VatArch is "hidden". Mostly it's just as yet uncatalogued and unconserved.

Ok. Let me ask again. Where in the Buybull does it say gays are condemned to hell for eternity? Is doesn't. You made it up. A liar for Jesus, how exciting. I wonder how he feels about you taking over his job?

"will not inherit the Kingdom of God" "nor homosexuals"

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NASB)
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,
10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

Sweetie, does your version of God really approve of a version of the Bible which has been deliberately and maliciously mistranslated? Paul made no mention of homosexuals or anyone who might even be confused with one in his epistle and yet here you are with a version of the Bible that willfully lies to us. Jesus would be so pleased.

And there is your incontrovertible proof that "the" bible was altered by men with an agenda against gay people.

They chose to add the word "homosexuals."

It's corruption, pure and simple. And you insult God by reprinting that.
