it's just american spelling - just because you spell colour, neighbour or saviour without 'u' doesn't mean anyone's going to hell

Talk about grasping at straws.

Minor changes in the translation are work of the Debbil? Fundies seem to worship their precious King James Bible instead of Jesus, which makes them idol worshipers.

If you are that enamored, er, enamoured with British-Canadian-Aussie spellings, you could move to Centre Street in Jamaica Plain. Ah, scratch that. J-P is definitely not for a nut like you.

You do realise that the saying "The devil's in the details" isn't meant to be taken literally.

Nitpicking, and making a scene worth of a 4.

Shit my Bible has or instead of our. I should have known when I saw the King Jim's Bible on the title page!

616, not 666
Also, 'Saviour' comes from Old French sauveour (eight letters) from Late Latin salvatorem (ten letters) (nominative: salvator (eight letters)). In the Bible, this is translated from the Greek soter (five letters).
Although it did replace the Old English hælend. That had six letters.
So, um, basically you're just once more saying that English is the only language in which the Bible is valid. Which we've already established is pretty moronic.

On my honour, that was a sad endeavour. What colour is the sky in your world? Do us all a favour, and go and be somebody else's neighbour.

A book filled with foolish, contradicting stories and this asshole worries about the spelling of one word.
3/8/2008 3:56:46 PM
Wow. LEave it to a christian to worry and argue over spelling while ignoring the message. Hypocrites

Those fundies... Endless fun, aren't they?
Presented with a bottle of wine, they'll wage endless rhetorical wars on the color, size, wording, layout and language of the label in comparison with their favorite wine... and completely neglect to savour the contents.

In American English it is spelled "Savior."
In British English it is spelled "Saviour" (also in Canada, Australia, and South Africa...and probably a few other places that were part of the British Empire).
You want "Saviour," move to England or Canada or Aus...but stay out of South Africa. I have enough of you morons to contend with already.

Wow. I didn't know the differences between American and British/Canadian English was the work of the devil.
Ya' learn something new every day.

Oddly, insisting on British spelling instead of American is one of the things that makes Wikipedia evilly anti-American according to Conservapedia. So rules for biblical and encyclopedic spelling are different, are they?
3/8/2008 4:17:49 PM
So "NO U" is a curse, then?

The Devil's Advocate

Damn, The Devil's Advocate beat me to it...

It's spelled with five (or four and a half) letters in the OT Hebrew and also with five letters in the NT Greek from which the KJB was translated, so it doesn't sound like God takes much interest in this sort of numerology nonsense. Besides, I'll bet Nic's Bible doesn't spell "return" as "returne" as it did in the original Barker 1611 edition, so he's still stuck with substituting the evil 6 for the holy 7.
3/8/2008 4:42:11 PM
... and the Holy S-p-i-r-i-t - we've got 666 in the Trinity!
3/8/2008 4:44:31 PM
That's a new one. It all hangs on not using americanized spelling. I wonder what Nic thinks about the metric system?

"But when Jesus tried to enter Jerusalem, men of the city came and beat He and the Twelve back from the gates, saying "this man is not the son of God. This is the devil, for he hath but six letters in his job description". But Jesus replied "I tell you solemly, I am the authentic seven-letter edition Saviour, not the demonic six-letter version. Yea, look here at my driver's license". And the men of Jerusalem did look upon it and were filled with joy."
(Except from the long lost Gospel according to Saint Jimbo)

Stop the laughter. When will you people realise how words like humour should be spelt?
