The many versions of how we have redefined scripture over the last 2000 yrs have created much confusion, as to what the intended message may very well be. I have noted sects of Christianity that avoid each other over seemingly miniscule differences in interpretation of wording. My question is a very fundamental one (which I already have my own answer to), but may shed light for those who have open minds.

Which Version of the Bible....is the actual word of God?

I personally use the New living translation...its easy to read.
I know most would argue that the King James version is the only true word of the bible because in other translations, words are replaced with words not as meaning ful or dropped all together that throws off the meaning of the sentence. I have personally gone over this, and the living one doesn't do that...and if some wording is different in otehr translations, then it is noted in a footnote.

I use Today's English Version (TEV) and I also use New International Version (NIV). But as far as which is one is right? Probably the KJV. But I use the other two because they are easier for me to read. All those "thy", and "shall" words (and others of the like) get annoying after awhile.

I use the NIV bible, New International Version. I would recomend this to all, its fairly easy to read and doesn't lose much of the translation, I would know, I speak ancient Greek.

Cool... If you're interested in learning how to at least read the Hebrew so you can check scripture, there is an on-line tutorial... Let me know if interested and I'll post the link.
