As Jesus Updated God, Shouldn't We (Today's Children of God) Update the Holy Bible?

“Now we see things as through a glass darkly; but at that time we shall see them as they are.” The old Bible gives us the truth ‘through a glass darkly’; that ‘glass’ (filter-lens) is “the writer’s perspective, recollection & understanding.” Those faculties have evolved & mutated, shouldn’t writers today evolve & mutate the Bible in the same way? (particularly the creation-story?)
The source of a lot of my 'disagreements with Christianity' is this: I value 'the reality in which we live' over 'the realities we imagine.' I understand God's...

I will ask and await an answer. Perhaps I might even be inspired.

Does God speak words to you, or does he speak with action?

First Jesus Christ is God in the flesh...and the Holy Bible is fully the written word of God..It was inspired by God....Jesus did not up date anything he fulfilled Gods law.... God put everything in the Holy Bible that is needed.. From the very beginning to the End...Gods word is the same yesterday, today, and for ever... The only thing that has evolved through the years is man going away from the word, and satan changing Gods word into something evil We do not need new writers, we need to get back to the only word we need to follow... Gods word....

@mythociate It will never be good for us humans as long as we try to change Gods word into something that it is not.....

@dlr297 "something it is not" is already something you think God's Word IS

We are only humans, I believe we had no rights to change the Bible. May be it would more useful to check the translations, there are too many contrasting versions.

What gave the humans who wrote it any power over 'now'? (Didn't Jesus say not to worry about the future? to let the future worry about itself? Aren't WE the future now?)

@mythociate It is a popular idea that God "dictated" the Bible. If we change it, this means that we disagree with God. The humans who wrote, only recorded what the voice of God dictated. I have not heard that the voice of God is now dictating another version.

To be fair Anna, it was humans that originally wrote the Bible. As I am sure you already know, many sections of the Bible were written generations after the events that they refer to and are a result of some scholar writing down a version that has passed from generation to generation.

I think the original bible should stay the way it is. It's just like the law, it shouldn't change. I do however think it would be helpful to have a n easy translated version for those that don't understand that type of language written in the older times. Maybe modernize the language in it.

My main complaint is that the Genesis '7 Days'-story seems to disagree with the evidence that God left us.

@mythociate If the Genesis story were meant to be a science lesson or a history lesson, then you would have a point. But it's neither.

@Rollo1 So 'History' is a MYTH?
