Contemplating books

QJRouge
QJRouge: Ok...I have read The Hobbitt and lord of the rings once a year since 1974. I always find new things and of course new flaws because the truth only has one truth, not several versions.
I have read the bible and its various versions many times and had expected in the beginning all versions would be exactly the same, which to my long dismay, they are not. Infact each version changes when cantradictions in the original KJv are altered. The bible is suppose to be the truth, but as I said the truth has only one version, thus the bible proves itself to be bogus

chronology: 'Original Version' you are joking right? The KJV was an Elizabethan translation intended 'not to be a new version, but to make old ones better' .

What you may benefit from is a good study Bible. The Schoefield Reference Bible is excellent and helps to explain various texts within different books of the Bible.

Zanjan: "had expected in the beginning all versions would be exactly the same"

If they were all the same, none would be a version - they'd be copies.

""as I said the truth has only one version"

That's how reality works. Reality is one, and there are many perspectives of it.

One can read a single passage from the Word of God 10 times and get something different out of it each time - all of them truths. They're like layers of water so, the more we contemplate them, the greater the understanding. We call this "deepening".

Zanjan: QJ, you should try reading other scriptures from different religions - they shed light on biblical texts. Most people don't realize that (aside from historical accounts) how little in the Bible is actually original.

Zanjan: I highly recommend reading the book "The Peace Bible" - it contains a collection of short truths from every religion on earth. Very enjoyable reading.
