    lords boby: How does reading 1611 stop private interpretations
  • Lords body
    I read the 1611 version precisely to avoid private interpretation.

    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?

    Satan was cast out of heaven with his angels before Gen. for rebelling against God; wanting to usurp God's authority and be 'God' himself and he had a host of angels that followed him. This was done before Adam 'n Eve. The testimony of this event is corroborated by Jesus Himself - Lk.10:18. The prince of the power of the air, Eph.2:2. Tit.2:12, we are 'in' the world, but not 'of' it, Jn.15:19, 17.
