    At least 2, that I have read ... the Catholic and Protestant versions.
    This link is good for explaining the differences:

    They are all true and valid.  ALL of them.  It is like the blind men and the elephant. All are partly right and all of them are partly wrong.

    If the Bible is "The Word of God" ... then how is it possible for mortals (in the forms of committees made entirely of males) to alter said "Word"?
    Logically, it is not.
    Since we know that IS how the Bible was created, then logically it is not "The Word of God" - it is the words of Men.

    True enough.  But my translation of the Bagavad Gita are the same as your translations. Different time, same message. Meaning, we are all saved, if we Trust in the Lord and not in our ego.

    No...not the same translation. The different Bible translations are made by taking the oldest copies of the books available and the scholars translate from the original language (usually Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek) and write in English or Spanish etc. 
    So, No your Bhagavad Gita book it not the same. Other than they are religous books. This post was edited by my2cents at November 29, 2019 12:24 PM MST

    What about the Mormons?  Don't they get a Bible?

    As I understand it the Mormons use both the Bible and the Book of Mormon.

    No way to count accurately. Too many translations, retranslations were lost to history, and nearly every denomination endorses it’s own version.
    A Google search reveals dozens of versions currently in print, in hundreds of languages, including braille. 


    Apparently, YHWH gets PO’d for a variety of reasons; enough to induce him to create hell. 
    Not a good look for a benevolent, unerring, omniscient deity.

    MY bible is the true one.  People say that.  Then I wonder why Trump got elected.

    Other people draw different messages from their bibles; though I allege few of them have actually read it as much as they would have us believe.

    How do you know that some kind of God even exists in a human form and is capable of such an emotion?
