Bible, God's Thoughts Revealed

Updated on August 7, 2010

Isaiah 55; God's Thoughts, Much Higher than Man's

Only a deep personal study of it will prove that what we call the Bible, is indeed inspired of an Intellect outside of man. In your quest however, you need to be aware that professed Christianity [Christendom] has misrepresented the Creator's inspired Writings, which was predicted by the Bible itself

[2 Timothy 3:5; 2 Thesalonians 2:9- 12; 1 Timothy 4:1].

You also need to be aware that although its transmission [about 5,300 manuscript copies in Koine Greek, and 6000 in ancient Hebrew] is reasonably accurate, the same cannot be said of its translations in other tongues e.g. English].
If you research Textus Receptus, and Comma Johanneum, you should see that a handful of late manuscripts were contaminated by man, with all Bibles translated from that source containing common errors. The king James Version [KJV], Gideon, and a few others, have all rendered 1 John 5:7, Revelation 1:11, and 1 Timothy 3:16, incorrectly. Also, many modern paraphrase Bibles have introduced new errors due to their biased renderings from the ancient tongues.
It is best, then, that you compare all controversial texts in as many different translations as possible.
Example John 1:1

1808 "and the word was a god' The New Testament, in An Improved Version,

Upon the Basis of Archbishop Newcome's

New Translation: With a Corrected Text, London.


1864 "and a god was the Word" The Emphatic Diaglott by Benjamin Wilson.


1935 "and the Word was divine" The Bible- An American Translation, by J.M.P.

Smith and E. J. Goodspeed, Chicago.


1950 "and the Word was a god" New World Translation of the Christian Greek

Scriptures, Brooklyn.


1975 "and a god (or, of a

divine kind) was the Word"* Das Evangelium nach Johannes, by Siegfried

Schulz, Gottingen, Germany.


1978 "and a godlike sort was the Logos"* Das Evangelium nach Johannes

Schneider, Berlin.


1979 "and a god was the Logos"* Das Evangelium nach Johannes, by Jurgen

Becker, Wurzburg, Germany.

* Translated from German.


These translations use such words as "a god," "divine" or "godlike" because

the Greek word (theos) is a singular predicate noun occurring before the verb

and is not preceded by the definite article. This is an anarthrous theos.

On the other hand, theos, preceded by the definite article ho is referred to as

an articular theos.

Careful translators recognize that the articular construction of the noun points

to an identity, a personality, whereas a singular anarthrous predicate noun

preceding the verb, points to a quality about someone.


The Bible is the most attested of all ancient books, it does not support the pagan idea of an Immortal Soul as do the Pyramid Texts, and the Book of the Dead.
The Bible is proven trustworthy and accurate by:

1. its historical accuracy
2. its prophetic accuracy
3. its candor
4. its internal harmony
5. its scientific accuracy [long before man finally accepted and was able to prove]
6. its comparison to the Dead Sea scrolls
7. its wealth of advice and wise sayings.

      It may interest some to know that there is soon to be published an 18+ year study (as of 08/2010) of John 1:1 entitled, "What About John 1:1?"

      To learn more of its design and expected release date, we invite you to visit:

      Good Hub! Strong warnings from God!

      Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth 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 22:19 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.
