    No one has the innerant word of god unless it is in the original language of those recording it? In other words, all we have are translations? To say english bibles are the word of good is not completely true? For example, I am not fluent in greek, however as I look at a interlinear bible, it seems there is a lot of subjective pieces that figure into an english translation. Is this correct?

    Have to remember that Ineranncy/Infallibility applied to the ORIGINAL manuscripts/texts themselves, as the authors were inspired by HS to record those down...

    So even the Original language texts we have today are VERY CLOSE to what was originally written down but not Exactly as original manuscripts were...

    God DID preserve his word though through the Ages, so the English, Russian, Chinese etc versions based off the Greek/Hebrew texts are essentially 100% accurate, and so would be word of God to you in whatever version translated into, assuming that it is a compentant translated version!

    And the Bible would still be authoratative in all matters that it addresses, especially those of spiritual matters!
