    lords boby: How does reading 1611 stop private interpretations
  • Lords body
    I read the 1611 version precisely to avoid private interpretation.
  • ChrisC607
    Am I the only one that has a severe issue with how many different versions of one small paragraph there are? Who gives anyone the right to manipulate the words of the Bible itself? Why do we accept corporations that are profiting from the sales of Bibles changing the words? Humans are blind to the truth and his ways. Judge not, yet so quick to point fingers. Follow his guidance, or idolize a book?
