Well im not saying change Gods word but remember the bible was written in latin every single translation is changing Gods word.

What I am in agreement is changing the language up a little, what was understood many years ago will not be understood by people today. Im not saying to change the image of God.

Just like shakespeare, his language in his books were totally different no one talks like that anymore.



you'd think something so powerful as giving your life for and spending your entire life supporting, and worshiping your god would warrant learning latin. but its not, people say they are followers of god, but only if its in a way that is totally convienent to them.

your right, no one talks like shakespear does. but yet they dont change the books, they read the books the way they were written and discuss them.


the fact is today ther are still those out there that dont understand him. how much are you going to water down your lords words? we going to make them as basic as "see spot run" "run spot run" its just dumbing down your religion to make it easier on yourself. and yet people of religion talk of all this sacrifice.
