    What we have are Bible VERSIONS. No one of them is "the" Bible, to he exclusion of all others.

    How about the Good News Bible? Or the Message? Or the Readers Digest Bible?

    The Lord's Prayer in the Message Bible

    Our Father in heaven,
    Reveal who you are.
    Set the world right;
    Do what's best—
    as above, so below.
    Keep us alive with three square meals.
    Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others.
    Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil.
    You’re in charge!
    You can do anything you want!
    You’re ablaze in beauty!
    Yes. Yes. Yes.

    Message Bible John 1:1

    The Word was first,
    the Word present to God,
    God present to the Word.
    The Word was God,
    in readiness for God from day one.

    2 Corinthians 5:21 in the Good News Bible

    Christ was without sin, but for our sake God made him share our sin in order that in union with him we might share the righteousness of God

    You mock using scripture? Tsk tsk (and “make” not “set” would be correct.)

    That’s just it, doctrines are changed because of the vast amount of differing words used.

    You really think the Message bible is “infallible witness to the truths and doctrines of God!”?
    I know you said ALL translations but have you read this?

    I understand there are versions, but that’s not what I asked. Is there anything that contain the words of God that you call a “Bible?”

    Your opinion is misleading and wrong. They are not completely different.

    Just like the KJV is both a revision of pre-1611 English Bibles and a translation of the multiple varying editions of the original-language texts, the NKJV is both a revision of the KJV and a translation of the same multiple original-language texts. The Church of England makers of the KJV made the same type changes and revisions to the pre-1611 English Bibles that the makers of the NKJV made to the KJV. The NKJV is a revised version of the KJV is the same way that the KJV is a revised version of the Bishops' Bible and of the Geneva Bible.

    The KJV does not have the same words as the preserved Scriptures in the original languages. In many cases the KJV has no English rendering for original-language words of Scriptures, and in many cases the KJV adds English words for which it has no original-language words of Scripture. It has not been demonstrated that the different words in the KJV always have the same exact meaning as the original-language words of Scripture.

    You have not demonstrated from the Scriptures that the process of the giving of the Scriptures by inspiration of God to the prophets and apostles continued after the completion of the giving of the New Testament.

    The preserved Scriptures in the original languages remain the proper standard and greater authority for the making and trying of all Bible translations.

    Then if the King James is part of those translations, it should be okay to call it a Bible (KJB).

    I disagree because of God’s promises to preserve His words. No one has the originals! Nor does older always mean better.
    The Critical text manuscripts discovered are in good shape most likely because they weren’t being used.
