Re: Jesus, not the first
Your flame just roasted the stack of photos. Thank you. I was tired of having them in my possesion. @#4 I know I just had hoped people such as yourself would not flame.
@#1 I put the dates because I took it as "the Bible was written many years after Jesus lived" so I put a timeline showing when the new testament was written.
@#2 & #3 It is refering to the Bible, Paul was speaking of the gifts to the church and said "But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away." "that which is in part" is the gifts(speaking in tongues etc.) while "that which is perfect" is refering to the Bible. Show me 1 contradiction you find and I'll not use the Bible to prove itself.
@#5 Show me proof that the KJV not the NKJV is the least accurate. It comes directly from the Textus Receptus. This is from wikipedia's article on the Textus Receptus "The Textus Receptus was defended by Burgon in his The Revision Revised (1881), and also by Edward Miller in A Guide to the Textual Criticism of the New Testament (1886). Burgon supported his arguments with the opinion that the Codex Alexandrinus and Codex Ephraemi, were older than the Sinaiticus and Vaticanus; and also that the Peshitta translation into Syriac (which supports the Byzantine Text), originated in the 2nd century. Miller's arguments in favour of readings in the Textus Receptus were of the same kind. However, both Burgon and Miller believed that that, although the Textus Receptus was to be preferred to the Alexandrian Text, nevertheless it still required to be corrected in certain readings against the manuscript tradition of the Byzantine text. In this judgement they have been criticised by Hills. Hills argues that the principle that God provides truth through scriptural revelation, necessarily also implies that God must ensure a preserved transmission of the correct revealed text, continuing into the Reformation era of biblical translation and printing. For Hills, the task of biblical scholarship is to identify the particular line of preserved transmission through which God is acting; a line which he sees in the specific succession of manuscript copying, textual correction and printing, which culminated in the Textus Receptus and the King James Bible. Hills argues that the principle of providentially preserved transmission guarantees that the printed Textus Receptus must be the closest text to the Greek autographs; and consequently he rejects readings in the majority Byzantine text where these are not maintained in the Textus Receptus. He goes so far as to conclude that Erasmus must have been providentially guided when he introduced Latin Vulgate readings into his Greek text; and even argues for the authenticity of the Comma Johanneum.
Hence the true text is found not only in the text of the majority of the New Testament manuscripts but more especially in the Textus Receptus and in faithful translations of the Textus Receptus, such as the King James Version. In short, the Textus Receptus represents the God-guided revision of the majority text."
@Mal: My I.Q. is that of a genius, so don't call me stupid. And I'll quote you "It's because of ignorant people like you that those of us who actually know what we're talking about are not taken seriously."
