You should know my view on the Bible. It was written as an 'Occult Book' meaning a 'Secret Book' only for those who were properly trained on how to read and interpret the true teachings. Because it was privileged information, not to be in the hands of the untrained, false teachings were mixed with the true so that if it fell into the hands of the wrong group -- they would not know what was truth and what was not. The church would be in full control of the contents and what was shared.
The translators and those who attempted to publish the Book in the English language, and maybe others, were exterminated by the Church in its attempt to stop its distribution to the public.
King James did not like the versions first translated, so he had his own translation done that reflected what he wanted to believe and he called it God's Word. It was and is different from the originals. The Southwest Baptist Theological Seminary professors published a book that stated the number of errors in the K.J. Version exceeded a very vast number. They gave a number but it would shock you.
The Bible was not set in the number of books or in their order for centuries. Even the Hebrew faith was without written Scriptures for approximately 400 years when a mysterious set of scrolls were found in a temple they were using. Instantly they had written teachings, but did not disclose the source. Soon they may have to admit where the writings actually came from for the oldest originals on clay tablets have been found.
In all churches, splits had developed over what to include and what to keep hidden from the general population. The Books still remained occult in nature, but the church found that the false teachings were a way they could control the people and the church could attain great power and wealth.
There is a system for separating the true and the false. But that means approaching the Scriptures of the Bible, the Apocrypha, and the Scriptures of all the other world religions with an open heart and mind.
Are you game? If you are, I will post the way or signs that just might help guide your learning what is true and what is not.
