The Spoken Word, Written Word, and Word Made Flesh of God

Exodus 20:1 And God spake all these words, saying,

2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

13 Thou shalt not kill.

14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

15 Thou shalt not steal.

16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

As it was mentioned in the comments, this is something that I think should be well-known.

  1. BIBLE TRANSLATION CRITICS BY STEVE FINNELL

    Did you ever notice that the self appointed arbiters of Biblical translation accuracy spend their time criticizing various translations. Ninety-nine percent of all translations give an accurate, trustworthy account of the gospel of Christ. The problem is not that men cannot find a translation that tells men how to become saved by accessing the blood of Christ. The difficulty occurs because men reject the clear teaching of Scripture.

    God’s message in 99.5% of all Bible translations is the same.

    TRANSLATION COMPARISON

    Ephesians 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. (NKJV)

    Ephesians 1:7 So overflowing is his kindness toward us that he took away all our sins through the blood of his Son, by whom we are saved. (The Living Bible –Paraphrased)

    Ephesians 1:7 By whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his favor, (The Better Version of The New Testament by Chester Estes)

    Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our sins, in accordance with the riches of his grace (The Thompson Chain-Reference Bible NIV 1983)

    All of these translation say the same thing. All men need to do is believe the message.

    John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.(NKJV)

    John 14:6 Jesus told him, “I am the Way—yes, and the Truth and the Life. No one can get to the Father except through me.(TLB—P)

    John 14:6 Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me. (TBVOTNT by Chester Estes)

    John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.(TTC-RB NIV 1983)

    All of these versions of the Bible say the same thing. Why would any one criticize God’s translations.

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (NKJV)

    Acts 2:38 And Peter replied, “Each one of you must turn from sin, return to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; then you also shall receive the gift, the Holy Spirit.(TLB–P)

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Let each one of you repent and be immersed, in the name of Jesus Christ, in order to the remission of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(TBVOTNT by Chester Estes)

    Acts 2:38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (TTC-RB NIV 1983)

    All of these translations say the exact same thing. Repentance and water baptism are essential in order to have sins forgiven, and following that, men receive in indwelling gift of the Holy Spirit Himself.

    There is no problem with the translations. The problem is that men reject the clear teaching of Scripture.

    YES, GOD IS SMART ENOUGH TO GIVE MORE THAN ONE ERROR FREE TRANSLATION OF THE BIBLE.

    TRANSLATIONS OF THE BIBLE ARE NOT THE PROBLEM. THE PROBLEM IS, MEN WHO READ THE BIBLE WITHOUT ASKING GOD TO REVEAL HIS TRUTH TO THEM
