First of all, someone needs to straighten him out on the history of what he now knows as the holy bible. Second, even if he were right about that, who decided that “unchanging” means right and “changing” means wrong? I wish I had been there to ask him a few questions:
“So, I assume you still hold to all the laws and rules in the old testament, right? We can’t go revising those.”
“You’re a plumber—so I assume that you work only with lead pipe, and not any of the newfangled materials, right?”
“Since science is constantly changing and is therefore unreliable, I assume that you do not drive a car or use electricity, since they are products of science and should be considered dangerous. Right?”
Wow, Joe found god at The big boy how ironic! You see it was meant to be. Jesus touched his heart with a hamburger. See how simple it was Joe, just put down the menu grab any book, science, literature, the Koran, etc. and where but thefloppybook does it say “Holy”? Ah ha! Now I wonder what’s in this inerrant word of god? Who cares. it says holy and that’s enough for me. Just like the menu says “all beef patties”. No investigation means you are likely fed crap!
If Joe The Plumber thinks the Bible hasn’t changed, I would invite him to read the oldest known copies of some of the Old Testement which were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. I’ve read translations and have several books on the subject in my personal book collection.
I also have several different translations in my collection and found over fifty different versions in the San Diego Library in the English language alone.
I got into a looong drawn out argument with a preachers wife about that. She was trying to use the bible as an excuse for some primitive bullshite. I called her on it. I asked her if she’d ever read the bible. She told me she read it every day with her family. I asked her if she’d read it from front to back. First she said yes…and when I called her on the lie, she changed her story and told me she hadn’t, and didn’t need to because hubby was a preacher man. I challenged her and told her I would read it with her, and she refused…typical christian…
