Have you ever caught your minister putting their own spin on the Bible?


I recently sat through a sermon in which the minister state that he used the KJV 1611 bible because it was translate word-for-word from the oldest Greek manuscripts available as ordained by God. Two days later we sat at my kitchen table discussing creation. During this conversation he informed me that the word "create" from the original Greek to "to create from nothing. "I told him that I was surprised to hear him admit that the Bible was mistranslated. He left without finishing his coffee. Have you ever caught a minister in a similar position?

    Well I never thought about the time they were asleep. However I am sure Jesus told them what to write on tablets. He would never write a lie. I have researched different bibles and they say the same thing but worded differently.
