I found some interesting bit of history that secures confidence in the Septuagent.

At first experts declared that the Dead Sea Scrolls validated the Masoretic Old Testament over the Septuagent. However after further reflection on the Isaiah scrolls, coupled with the discovery of Dead Sea manuscripts for other Old Testament books, an initial determination that the Masoretic text predated the Septuagent was overturned.

Rather than vindicating the Masoretic text as being the original Hebrew text, the thousands of Qumran text specimens reveal that there was a definite diversity of text types of the Old Testament in use during the centuries before Christ.

The Masoretic text reflects only one of those text types

On the other hand there were early Hebrew manuscripts that largely agree textually with the Septuagint. The Septuagent seems to be a faithful translation of this earlier text.

The following link is kind of technical but confirms what I describe.

A chance that there is a being out there far more advanced the us? There is a 100% certainty! Would we call them Gods? More than likely. Especially 3,000+ years ago. Is there the god that is described in the Bible? No.

Well, we certainly weren't talking about idiot Catholic college staff supporting the Marxist president. Kay likes to throw out as much dirt on bad Catholics as she can when she has no response to the challenges posited by the Catholics here.
And I'm here to educate you protestants who are ignorant of Catholic teaching . Why are you here?

makes no common sense.
BUSTED!
Correct. If we were perfect, maybe, but then He is a God of love. Catholics, most religions teach hellfire to keep their congregation coming back. Sense eventually will rule the world over to end this crappy story.

When did I make such a claim? I know a lot of intelligent, yet indoctrinated people. Strong belivers are normally on the lower portion of the scale, but not always.
People who hide their location have reasons to do so. I don't worry too much about that. I don't worry about people knowing that I am from Pittsburgh.

The Pope and his monkeys protect sodomizing predators in the Vatican. 124 are wanted in the US for sins upon youth. Catholics don't need any help, you did it yourselves....12 crusades, inquisitions and fearful stupid dogma of tradition which has nothing to do with worshiping God.

Historical research reveals five significant ways in which the Masoretic Text is different from the original Old Testament:

1.The Masoretes admitted that they received corrupted texts to begin with.

2.The Masoretic Text is written with a radically different alphabet than the original.

3.The Masoretes added vowel points which did not exist in the original.

4.The Masoretic Text excluded several books from the Old Testament scriptures.

5.The Masoretic Text includes changes to prophecy and doctrine.

The following suggest the existence of a large 1st-century Jewish community which accepted the Deuterocanon as inspired Scripture.

In three places, the Talmud explicitly refers to the book of Sirach as “Scripture”.

Jesus celebrated Hanukkah, a feast which originates in the book of 1 Maccabees, and nowhere else in the Old Testament.

The New Testament book of Hebrews recounts the stories of multiple Old Testament saints, including a reference to martyrs in the book of 2 Maccabees.

The book of Wisdom includes a striking prophecy of Christ, and its fulfillment is recorded in Matthew 27.

Numerous findings among the Dead Sea Scrolls suggest the existence of 1st century Jewish communities which accepted many of the Deuterocanonical books as authentic Scripture.

Many thousands of 1st-century Christians were converts from Judaism. The early Church accepted the inspiration of the Deuterocanon, and frequently quoted authoritatively from books such as Wisdom, Sirach, and Tobit. This early Christian practice suggests that many Jews accepted these books, even prior to their conversion to Christianity.

Ethiopian Jews preserved the ancient Jewish acceptance of the Septuagint, including much of its canon of Scripture. Sirach, Judith, Baruch, and Tobit are among the books included in the canon of the Ethiopian Jews.

A: His virgin daughter (Judges 11:30-39)

Why Jesus?

It just goes to show what a person who really loves god will do! If you are not willing to sacrifice your child to god, then you ain't a good christian. Just a poser.

Yes, Jesus taught castration.

No, Jesus was not talking about celibacy.

No one claims many problem with the translations.
There were entire monastic orders, and church choirs in need of sopranos known as "castrati" based on this teaching of Jesus.

"But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs from the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it." (Matthew 19:11-12)

GOOD NEWS!!!

Thanks to modern medical science, most should have no problem accepting it -- if they truly had faith.
