The newer the bible revision or edition, the more revised it is from the original text. Your best version is the KJV 1611. It is also the most
confusing. We to this day, are not able to translate all of the languages and books in the bible very accuratly. Original text copies are rare...and
are very old. Missing peices of pages, water washed lettering, fading, ect. make for nearly impossible translating conditions. Even in 1611 it was
bad. Todays bibles are revised to account for major contradictions and translating errors....without referring to original texts. One major example.
Did god actually temp people himself? Most born agains will say no...god only tests people...he does not temp because thats what the bible says
today. But, if you read a written before 1950 or so, God did tempt...on more than one occasion. Contradictions were eliminated to reduce more
intelligent scrutiny. The older the better.
