This Holy Book is written in many different versions by many different languages and interpreters. This Book is the basis of almost all religion all over the world. Each religion have different interpretitions in bringing out what is inside the Bible, maybe because the different versions have missed some parts and other versions have some parts added to it. So for you my friends what Bible version do you love reading and you find it easily understood. How many bibles do you have? are you reading them daily?

I believe we shouldn't take the Bible into context because it actually speaks mysteriously. Many people have been led astray by opportunists who deliberately misinterpret the bible in order for them to take advantage of those people. What they do is they start their own sect and then ask money from the people that followed them.

You are also right. There are people who tried to interpret it in their own understanding. But it is only sad that they are using it for their own selfish motives. Hope they will soon realize that they are not helping others after all.

I do not believe that any religion or any denomination can interpret it correctly all the time. Every church, every priest or pastor, everyone who read the Bible can interpret some of it correct, definitely not all the time. The Bible tells us that we are not perfect, we are not smart enough to understand God. That being the case, how can anyone interpret it correctly at all times. It's impossible, that's why the admonition to "seek" truth. Jesus said that ultimately we will find the truth, obviously only enough knowledge for us to live a blameless life. We will not be able to find out the truth about everything, even angels need to ponder and continue to learn. Plus the events written in the Bible happened so many years ago, we could not understand how the people lived and their thinking process. It's impossble to understand a lot of the words without appreciating the context. I have read the Bible twice, cover to cover, but I am not a Christian and do not attend any service. Every time I read the Bible, I appreciate differently. It's a good book worth reading again.

thank you for your very nice opinion my friend. Everything you said are right. It is very good for you to have read the Bible cover to cover and have appreciated what you had read even though you are not are Christian.

When you start converting something from one language into multiple languages you are bound to mess up a few things. Have you ever had a conversation with someone that speaks a different language and finds it hard to translate everything they are saying? Not much different except I would think God would help them get it right, wouldn't you?

You are correct, messing up would really happen. And yes God would really help them get the right thing in it.
