    Well obviously if you guys get together then God will work through you and your votes. Isn't that why the Bible is infallible?

    It's an important historical document. Any new translation with an agenda other than improved scholastic or artistic fidelity is distasteful at best. I may not have any use for your god, but my faith takes books very seriously.

    Given that you use the book to dictate your public policy, we have to stay in the know. I mean heck, you guys might decide that gay sex isn't all that bad and let us have a shot at marriage.

    Who said they cared, other than to keep the government out of it?

    But the point for some is that many accept edits already in place. And would see going back to before the edits as wrong.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You're late to the party. You want a list of churches that already decided that?

    First of all I completely agree with you about the Conservapedia project and I think it is truly distasteful. My point was is that if you are not purposefully taking out parts of the Bible to agree with things we feel here in the States is it not the same thing? And I honestly do not know that answer. I think that if the Bible were to change it should not be because we want it to fit in with society, but rather the religion has changed.

    And I am against the change for the purpose of better fitting it into our society for another reason, even though it is more of a personal. I am not a person of faith and I do not believe in God, however, having gone to Catholic school for eleven years I have read the Bible multiple times. I read the book in more of a literary sense and knowing parts of the Bible has helped me understand some of histories truly great literature through my understanding of the Bible. I fear that if we were to change the Bible for the purpose of it better suiting out societal goals that we would lose that allegorical importance.

    I'm curious, Wake. Any particular reason you are creating devils advocate threads, lately? Trying to hone your debating skills by presenting arguments that are the opposite of what you actually believe? Just curious for disclosure purposes.

    Outside of translation corrections, no. The Bible is what it is and no amount of changing it will change anything other than making those that follow it even more against changing it, lol.

    This is nothing but another anti-Christian bait thread...

    No, the Bible shouldn't be revised because some people have a problem with the morals of the Bible.
