Wow! Very interesting. I'll Have to watch the other part later. 

 

 

 

Within the English translations alone, there is tremendous variety in wording.  Each difference in wording, has great change in meaning.

Yes, that has been pointed out numerous times just in this forum alone. Here, and everywhere else I've seen this presented has always been explained away as being "some words cannot be translated as they were originally conveyed, so it is as close to the meaning as it can get". 

But here, with the obvious editing being shown is quite different. 

Whether it was done to reconcile continuity or not, it still shows someone made a personal judgement to make changes. Therefore, it begs to question, if this is allowed, what else had been changed or added without the knowledge of the masses that followed the final results? Also brings legitimacy to questions of an agenda being made within the pages, no?

If God were all powerful.  If God cared.  A way could be found.  People couldn't do it.  God could.

 

If God were not all powerful.  If God could not be bothered.  If people were behind all of it.  We would have a situation, that looks like what we have.

 

If God, the all powerful, all good, all knowing, all caring, involved with Humanity -- were really the force behind religion -- what would the world look like?  Not like this.

 

If people were behind all of it -- what would the world look like?  Exactly like this.

 

Is this proof of God's non-existence?  No.  God could still exist.  Still, call it circumstantial evidence.

 

Of course, if we only care about faith -- and belief -- and ignore the obvious.........     :dntknw:

Hello Jonathan. You might be interested in my first book Jehovah Unmasked, the true Identity of the Biblegod Revealed. It was published 15 years ago and went through two editions. It is now out of print but can be found online as a free PDF if you Google "Jehovah Unmasked PDF." It was written to laypeople not scholars. Please keep that in mind if you read it. 😉

Namaste,
BN

Here is a recording of an interview I did with Miguel Conner of Aeon Byte (a Gnostic podcast) about Jehovah Unmasked:

I meant to tell you to fast forward to the twenty minute mark. That's where the interview begins. There is also a second interview but another fellow is also interviewed. Move ahead to the 47 minute mark.
