I had posted a terse response to a video comment for which I was severely reprimanded, a couple of years ago! The woman went bezerk quoting some PERversion of Matthew 5:22 "But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell."
Well, wouldn't you know it, I do not hesitate to call someone a fool when it is he/she proves to be one! Furthermore, the entire Bible is full of admonishments regarding discerning the company we keep, etc.. One cannot discern right from wrong unless one JUDGES!!
Mind you by then I HAD been reading my NASB bible, but had never really hinged on the INCONGRUITY of such a verse!! IT WAS NOT RATIONAL and, as far as I was/am concerned, there is no one more rational than God! And this is His word!
Thus now I investigate it, and find the King James Version WHICH, LO AND BEHOLD, MADE SENSE!! IT WAS RATIONAL, Paul himself to not have been too shy to calling fools for what they were!
22But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. Matthew 5:22 (King James Bible)
WITHOUT A CAUSE!! Three little words that completely change the context!
Thus, I asked the "Rev." Richard Neumann of Niagara Frontier Bible Church (It seems this is what he wishes to be called now! - See Reverend - An Unbiblical Human Title by Dr. Scott Johnson and meeting another FALSE TEACHER!) who informed me that the differences in the translations were "trivial!" TRIVIAL!!
Here are two verses that are diametrically opposed one to the other and the difference is to be TRIVIAL!! This I heard in 2009, and, praise God, I have done so much growing in the word of God, since, to begin by learning about the ONLY TRUE WORD OF GOD FOR THE ENGLISH-SPEAKING PEOPLE TO BE THE KING JAMES BIBLE! All others to be PERVERSIONS, the sole work of the Roman Catholic Church!
Indeed, one shall know them by their fruits! These two "leaders" cannot even agree on their titles nor much else: Pastor Billy Crone to preach about the Pre-Tribulation Rapture, whereas his assistant, Rev. Richard Neumann preaches the Post-Tribulation Rapture! Not to mention this church uses the NIV PERversion! See 20 Translations Call Jesus a Liar, Bible perVERSIONS, Do You Care? John 7:8, Why Would Anyone Use the NIV? and NIV QUIZ!
By the way, to any who do not know of it as yet, I did attempt to open the eyes of the congregation of the above-mentioned church by distributing DVD's containing The Real Bible Version Issue EXPOSED!! by Bryan Denlinger among the parked cars during a Sunday service back on May 30, 2010.
