Which Bible ?

Dear brothers and sisters ,

There is a violent debate amongst Christians regarding which Bible to use , we would think all the Bibles are the same since they claim each one is by God .

Here we will compare the Bibles the Christians _argue_ about between themselves so we can see what all the rage in the midst of Christians is all about .

We will take the most popular Bibles , the King James Version (K.J.V.), the Revised Standard Version (R.S.V.) , the New International Version (N.I.V.) , the Good News Bible (G.N.B.), and the Living Bible Version (L.B.V.) and contrast verses within these Bibles .

This is excluding the deadly argument between the Catholics and Protestants who have Bibles that differ even more;

The Catholics have 7 additional Chapters/books called "Deutrocanonicals" their names are; (Tobit, Judith, Esther, The Wisdom of Solomon, Baruch, 1st. Maccabees, and 2nd. Maccabees) a total of 73 Chapters/books within the Catholic Bible

The Protestants in the year 1611 AD , removed the Deutrocanonicals from the Bible

66 Chapters/books within the Protestant Bible .

If the Christians had obeyed the Bible from the start , than all the Christians persecuting Christians would not have occurred and will stop occurring .

" What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it."Deuteronomy 12:32

" Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar."Proverbs 30:6

"For I testify unto every man that hearth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:"Revelation 22:18

"And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."Revelation 22:19

By the Grace of Allah (God in the Arabic Language) , the Holy Qur'an , the Third and Final Warning to humans , has been protected by Allah from change for over 1,400 hundred years .

Every letter is identical to the Original Qur'an sent by God , humans have failed in preserving the Enlightenment given to them , so as a Favor to us from Allah , the Qur'an is preserved for us as can be Witnessed by visiting the Islamic Museum in Cairo Egypt where a original Qur'an is available to see.

This message is not one of arguing or debating with the Christians, it is a message to bring peace, all humans are created from one, so shall we return to One Creator .

Salaam (Peace in Arabic)
