    You do see how this smells kinda like Fauci, dontcha?

    I don't know how you look at things, but I don't really have faith "in the Bible". I have faith in God, which the Bible told me about, and I have faith in Jesus Christ as Savior, and the Bible showed me how to do that. I look at the Bible like a manual, a textbook. Like any other textbook, it has errata, and sometimes the list is complete and sometimes it isn't. If you read through Lehninger you're going to learn biochemistry, and what is the net effect if there is an error in a word or sentence?

    Usually, if you're smart and you understand what the rest of the book is telling you, you can trap the error yourself.

    The Bible was written by human beings, therefore it's subject to human error. Regardless of whether or not it's the Word of God, it was still written down by humans, therefore it has errata. It's not infallible, when it comes to human beings the claim of infallibility is always an authority fallacy. In this case it was made by the Romans to control the rabble of all the religious sects who didn't like the State or its authority very much.
    I have faith in God and Jesus Christ, and the Bible showed me how to get that, the same way Lehninger shows me how to do a biochemistry experiment. It's the textbook of faith, not the faith itself.
    Actually, it's Faith in God, and what he proclaims. "And that Faith comes from God in the form of a gift " (Ephesians 2:8)

    To equate the Bible and it's single responsible author (through God's inspired prophets of old), with mans apostate churches that hold fast to their doctrines, dogmas, and 'mans traditions' over those inspired Scriptures, is laughable on the face of it.

    As far as mans corrupted governments and God are concerned, that divide has always existed, and that will be finally rectified when Armageddon is realized in the not too distant future. Fact is, God’s Kingdom will eliminate unjust, inept human ruler-ship once and for all.

    Daniel 2:44 states: “In the days of those kings [governments] the God of heaven will set up a kingdom . . . It will crush and put an end to all these [man-made] kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite.”

    Did you read the notes about the verse I included in my post?

    Just how might we have a standard of comparison, if there were no solid containers?

    Yes. The King James Bible doesn't contain those notes.

    In all fairness, the King James Version of the Bible was translated between 1604 and 1611 (yes, it took seven years to complete the job); and it was done from the Textus Receptus--long prior to the discovery of some important uncial manuscripts (and, even more impressively, some papyrus fragments).

    The resulting product was a truly remarkable one for the times.

    But to insist that it is a more reliable work than, say, the New American Standard Bible or the New Revised Standard Version, is a bit like declaring that a Model T Ford was a more advanced feat of engineering than a 2021 Cadillac is.

    One has to be foolish to believe that God is incapable of preserving His Word throughout the time of man...
    Bring out your dead- The monster is amongst us waiting to be revealed - he bears the number of a man, 666.
    Death is not racist as it is
    color blind it comes for us all regardless of age or standing
    has no remorse, or feels pity
    cannot be reasoned with nor bargained with
    it is coming for us all.

    I didn't say that it is more advanced, but it is more reliable.

    And it was, indeed, preserved--in such uncial manuscripts as Codices Vaticanus and Sinaiticus (from the mid-fourth century); Codex Alexandrinus (from the fifth century); and some even older papyrus fragments (some from the Chester Beatty collection).

    And how, exactly, is the Textus Receptus (which was the basis for the KJV) "more reliable" than even the Westcott and Hort text--let alone later upgrades?

    It doesn't omit references to the Godhead.
