The only Bible that I trust as a Christian is the King James version.
I 2nd that emotion.
One day they're gonna release a Bible
without the name of Jesus in it.
Sad day indeed
It would seem that to some new agers,
that the King James version is just not
politically correct anymore.
That's strange ... didn't know God needed
our permission to be politically correct?
And I also bet that one day a Bible will be
released that says it's ok to be gay and
that Soddom and Gomorrah will be
eliminated from the pages.
It's sad really that mankind has allowed itself
to be infiltrated by Satan to the point it has.
The revisions more accurately reflect translations of ancient Hebrew and Greek versions of the Old Testament and the constant evolution of modern-day language, Sperry said.
In a change in a passage in Isaiah 7:14 that foretells the coming of Jesus and his birth to a virgin mother, the 1970 edition's reference to "the virgin" will become "the young woman," to better translate the Hebrew word "almah."
"The bishops and the Bible are not signaling any sort of change in the doctrine of the virgin birth of Jesus. None whatsoever," Sperry added.

It's not a "new Bible", it's a new translation of the existing Bible.
Sheesh, talk about getting in an uproar over nothing. If you're not reading the Bible in Hebrew and Koine Greek, you are reading a translation!
