How the Holy Word of God
Is Rewritten by Man
The Faithful Should Be Aware of It
We have covered this subject matter from different angles in three
prior documents (1)(2)(3)
but, this time, we have the "confession" of Henry Wansbrough - the
General Editor of the New Jerusalem Bible, dated on November 1984 and
presented as the Foreword of the just then released New Jerusalem Bible
- to confirm it all.
Summing up his "confession": The Holy Texts are as good as, and
dependent on, the latest archeological, social, and linguistic
discoveries and their scientific interpretation.
The prior three documents that we have issued on the Holy Texts are:
Literalism or Symbolism? It Just Depends on the Circumstances
- Part I (1) and Part II (2)
The purpose of this two-part sequence
of documents is to dismount
another technique that is often used to disfigure people's faith -
whichever the faith of their choice may be.
We have touched on one facet of this danger in earlier documents; now
we will identify the other, and far more dangerous, facet: the
technique used by those who, quoting the Holy Scriptures: (a) justify
just about any criminal act "in the Name of God"; and (b) "can show"
that there are key contradictions in them thus "proving" the inherent
"unreliability" of Scriptures.
Why is this so important? Unfortunately men have been erroneously
taught to place their faith in either an institution or in a book
instead of placing their faith and entire trust in God.
and book are the instruments
to develop, and help place and strengthen
our faith in God; they are
not to become the object of our faith. When
the faith is not based on God, all the unbelievers have to do is to
discredit the "institution" and prove the "book" wrong . Once that is
done, the little faith man has will simply vanish away.

Continues to be Altered (3)
The purpose of this brief document is
to show how the original latin
text of the Douay-Rheims Bible - the Official
Version of the Bible
Accepted by the Roman Catholic Church - continues to be changed.
Now, for the Grand Finale....
(1) Biblical Literalism
or Symbolism? - Part I
Literalism or Symbolism? - Part II

Text of the Douay-Rheims Bible
