I am reading 7 articles right now, and they are correlated with one another. The theme is “false religion”. You know, because of this thing called “religion”, I get my mind boggled with a lot of questions. I used to believe you need this to be able to get to know God and go to heaven. It’s a misconception. You can have a religion but live without faith, and that won’t get you to heaven. I believe that religion is just a label. Grace and faith is essential.
Anyway, I was shocked to find out in these articles that the NIV Bible is a perverted one. (Sorry I have to hide the sources. I don’t even want to trust them because it is made by people as well) I mean, gee, I only know few versions of the Bible, at the same time I know THOSE that are completely rendered to hide the TRUTH, but I did not know that NIV was one of them?!
We were a family of Catholics, thus our Bible are for Catholics (we currently have Today’s English Version; is it also perverted?!) and it is the only one I could settle on for now. When I was able to get a hold of the King James’ Version, I found that it is similar yet the words are really difficult to understand at first read because it uses Old English (but you could understand it when you ask guidance 😀 ). This is the bible that my previous church used. But when I changed to another church, they were using the NIV.
The difference of them in my opinion is how they were written and made to let more readers understand the Word of God easily, but the context is still there. Some people argue that NIV deletes the important “words/translations” of the original Bible that is important for us to know. Now, I don’t understand. I hope I don’t get the wrong version of the Bible, because this is the only foundation I could have more knowledge of God. It is the basis of all the services and messages. This is where we know about the Truth. Imagine what could just happen if what I got is wrong! I will definitely have a misconception on a lot of things about God. I need light.
Lord, please tell me which is which. 😦
