Since the other thread was closed before anyone responded to this post, I'd like your thoughts to the following: Example: Two people are reading two different versions of the Bible. One version has a particular passage in it. The other version does not. They're comparing Scripture when one of them says, "hey, what are you reading? That's not in my Bible." They start comparing and sure enough, the passage is in one version and yet missing from the other. So, naturally they start checking that out. Then they find that some people think it is supposed to be in there, and must have been taken out from the other version. Other people say it's a mistake, and was added. OK, so naturally, they start to wonder, is that the Word of God or not? And if it isn't supposed to be in there, what else was added that isn't the Word of God? ..or........what else has been left out that is the Word of God? If they can't believe, or know for sure, that what they're reading is, or isn't, supposed to be in there, DOUBT creeps in. Simple as that. I've seen it happen. But, yet, there are Christians who will say that they BOTH are correct, and equally the Word of God. To me, that's just impossible. One of them is right, the other is wrong. I'm not saying which one is right, only that they both cannot be. BTW, this is NOT a KJV vs. everything else post! I didn't mention ANY versions in my example.
