Catholics don't care about scripture. They make up their own stuff.

So the Protestants must be right.

Matthew said...
The Catholic Church gave us the new testament canon, "We must concede the Church of Rome has given us the Scriptures", (Luther's works. vol. 40) and the Protestant view of faith alone and Scripture alone are not even biblical. (Matthew 19;17, Ephesians 5:5,6, James 2;24,1 Thessalonians 5;12, Luke 10:16, John 21:17). Peace always in the Most Precious Blood of Jesus our Great God and Saviour

Scott says...
This is another example of why the Authorized 1611 version of the English scriptures is the ony trusted English version. Nearly all other modern English versions came through the Catholic stream which winded its way through Alexandria, Egypt and through the hands of Wescott & Hort.

There must be some reason that the Authorized version is on the Vatican's list of banned books...hmm.

Scott, Actually, The Latin Vulgate is the most accurate and trusted. "We must concede the Church of Rome has given us the Scriptures.", Luther's works, vol. 40. Peace always in the Most Precious Blood of Jesus our Great God and Saviour

>>Who is right on Scripture, Catholics or Protestants?<<

My vote goes to the atheists.

horse,

Supposedly so was J.B Phillips. It used earlier documents that were discovered after the original source documents, as they were believed to be older and closer to the source than the documents that have been preserved as source documents. I assume the new finding have made it into the source documents. But there are documents that predate the original source used for KJV.

Those are some mighty fine reviews that your friends wrote up for you! Especially Elizabeth's.

I guess honesty and integrity are not your forte'.

Since when did Terry ever know anything about Catholicism?

Except that he doesn't like it, and criticizing it, however mindlessly, makes him feel important...

BTW, there's no "Index of Forbidden Books" anymore. The KJV stinks.

Kevin Bold says:
1) No one talks that way anymore, so, unless you like Shakespeare, you don't know what it's saying.

2) Sectarian translation.

3) Deuterocanonical texts are missing from the OT.

Kevin:

1) I think you're bright enough to understand Shakespearean English.
2) What's sectarian about it?
3) The Apocrypha was included in most editions of the KJV. They were later excluded largely for cost and bulkiness considerations.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 21, 2012 5:10:23 PM PST
bad translations of secondary sources

language used means different things now

niv is more accurate and best available to us
