    As it seems that either of them are popular, but that the ESV tends to be used in more conservative churches?

    Go look it up yourself. Its amazing, in the front of any copy of both texts is an introductory portion explaining their aims. Read them, summarize them, think about it, think about it, then talk with someone in person.

    Do your own homework.

    Thank you.

    This is not a good question and it's not a good discussion. Just like everything else this dude comes up with.

    Apparently I am not the only one and this is something we do agree on.

    I don't think there are many who disagree with us, actually. You have long ago worn out your welcome. You've even been banned once.

    To be fair those in charge have said he was not banned literally. Issues with his username came up.

    I'm sure a good number of people do. But when some continue to respond to his inane posts then it just encourages him.
