Quote# 31687

God has promised to preserve His Holy Word unto all generations which would include ours. God is not the author of confusion, thus the entire textual criticism arguments are against that simple truth. Most dangerous is the current emphasis on studying the “original” languages from current lexicons which have unfortunately been corrupted. What a shame to spend so much time trying to find the “truth” of the Bible in an earthly corrupt lexicon, when God has already provided a pure text in English for all to read, study and memorize already.

Another case of trusting the middlemen.

And what's more, he's handily provided it in NIV, NASB, Amplified, KJV, NLT, CEV, ESV, NCV, ASV and YLT versions, plus many more, so that we can enjoy it's divine inerrency in dozens of different ways!

Hooray!

Now... the "original" versions are corrupted... and that's all been cleared away in the English ones?

I'll have some of whatever EndTimes is having.

Why do fundies think English is Gods language?

Yes, you wouldn't want to study the babble in its ORIGINAL language would you?

Suffering from ethnocentrism?

"God is not the author of confusion," but his fundies make up for his lack and then some.

"God is not the author of confusion, thus the entire textual criticism arguments are against that simple truth."

- this makes two big assumptions (1) that there is a god; (2) that the contracdiction-ridden text of the Bible was ever inspired by that god. Contradictions do not inspire me to believe it was ever divinely inspired, nor do they prove it is a truthful account of anything.

"Most dangerous is the current emphasis on studying the “original” languages from current lexicons which have unfortunately been corrupted."

- When did your preacher tell you this? Language scholars know quite a lot about the languages of the bible texts. Far more than your average preacher does. When did you last hear Falwell, Robertson or Phelps speak Ancient Hebrew? So preacher apart, how did you come by this little gem of ignorance?

"God has already provided a pure text in English for all to read, study and memorize already."

- Ahem, and when exactly did this happen? When did god come down and say that the English version of the Bible is the best. I didn't even know god spoke English. On reflection, since he dealt mostly with Jews, he is more likely to speak Hebrew. Nu? You really have been brainwashed.

Whoa, whoa, whoa...so...don't trust the original texts, where one can divine the actual meaning, written by the hand of the author himself...THE ONE WHO WAS DIVINELY INSPIRED...but rather, trust a lowly mortal translator who may or may not have shifted, fudged or interpreted it to meet an agenda? Riiiiight.

Studying the ancient Greek texts has led some scholars to assert that the words in the KJV may have been mistranslated. Obviously, studying the Greek versions is therefore a bad idea, because all fundies know that the KJV came directly from God.

Morons.

I hate it when people mix Middle English into their comments in an attempt to make themselves sound somehow holier. "Unto"? Come on.

So WTF do French people read, then?

Wait, so the original texts are bad, while the translated versions which have been translated again and again are the right ones? WTF?!

"God has promised to preserve His Holy Word unto all generations which would include ours.

Ya think?

"God is not the author of confusion, thus the entire textual criticism arguments are against that simple truth."

Oh look, another fundy that needs to read his Bible--and not just the verses prescribed by his preacher:

2 Chronicles 18:22

Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil against thee.

See that bolded part pal? Sounds a lot like your deity does just what you claim he doesn't.

"Most dangerous is the current emphasis on studying the “original” languages from current lexicons which have unfortunately been corrupted. What a shame to spend so much time trying to find the “truth” of the Bible in an earthly corrupt lexicon, when God has already provided a pure text in English for all to read, study and memorize already."

Which is th e "pure" text in English? You realize that almost none of them say the same things other than in a very generalized sense, right?

My first bible was in portuguese. These people are just ignorant little children who think they are the center of the universe.

A corrupt translation, obviously. That's why French fundies are so hard to find. :-)

Does fundyism sound sexier in French too, do you think?

"Ah, ma petit dejeuner, I wheel now speak to you ze wurdz of lurv... 'Femmes, soyez soumises a vos maris, comme au Seigneur. Car le mari est le chef de la femme, comme Christ est le chef de l'Eglise, qui est son corps, et dont il est le Sauveur.'"

Because anyone with half a brain knows that the ancient Greeks, Romans, and Jesus himself all spoke and wrote English fluently.

wow...just wow....

Are you suggesting people wrote in 1600 English over a thousand years before the language existed?

11/28/2007 1:25:51 PM



Jon...
Not only did ancient Romans speak fluent Elizabethen English, they did so with a British accent.

The Bible wasn't God's holy word, then, until the KJV?

11/28/2007 2:17:51 PM

No no no, y'all got it wrong! Moses didn't write the bible, he was given the KJV to translate to hebrew.
