This is one of the main problems in Christianity. You expect others to believe that your Bible is the word of God, yet you do not believe that anyway.<quoted text>
That's because it's a true translation, done by a worldwide team of unbiased scholars that all agreed upon what the actual translation should be.
Unlike the KJV, which was done by six British men under the command of their king to make it the way he wanted it.
For hundreds of years, people believed in this KJV, and yet now it has grave errors? So many errors and so severe that it calls for a revision?
And do not make the mistake that versions and translations are the same thing. It's not.
If you take any book today that has been translated, what does that mean? It means simply that the book has been converted to another language. Take any book like the Da Vinci Code for example. Each sentence is translated. But each sentence is still present. They did not take out chunks of sentences that are present in the original english and throw it away. Or they did not put in sentences that Dan Brown did not write in his original.
But with the Bible, there are different "Versions", not merely different "Translations". This is because these different "versions", do not have the same number of verses, or even the same number of chapters! You have the Catholic bible, which has 73 books, then there is the Protestant Bible which has 66 books. 7 entire chapters or books, thrown out by the protestants! Some Orthodox Bibles have up to 81 books!
As if that is not bad enough, the Protestant bible has many numerous versions. Many verses in the KJV are not present in the revised standard version (RIV) created in 1901. Entire sentences removed, dismissed as fabricated and not "Gods word". This was grounds of uncovering ancient scriptures from 3rd century. But then there is the New International Version of 1970, where they have inserted certain verses previously not in the RIV, into the NIV!
Now, what nonsense is this? Entire chapters being thrown out and put back in. Verses being thrown out and put back in. Biblical scholars themselves do not trust the Bible to be the inerrant word of God, yet you expect everyone else to believe in it?
Why should I believe the NIV? In a few years time they will have a revised NIV with verses taken out or put in, and then you'll be promoting that one?
