The word of God ???

I was just browsing the net the other day and came across some holy bloopers!!!

In a 1631 edition of the King James Bible, in Exodus 20 verse 14, the word “not” was left out. This changed the 7th commandment to read, “Thou shalt commit adultery.” Most of the copies were recalled immediately and destroyed on the orders of Charles I. But there are 11 copies still remaining. They are known as the “Wicked Bible.” (The Bible museum in Branson, Missouri has one on display.) The printer was fined the equivalent of $400.

The word “not” was also left out in the 1653 edition. In 1 Corinthians 6 verse 9 it was printed: “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall inherit the kingdom of God” – instead of “”Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” Again it was recalled immediately (- dashing the hopes of many!). It is known as the “Unrighteous Bible.”

The Murderer’s Bible, printed in 1801, declared: “these are murderers” (instead of murmurers) and continued, “let the children first be killed” (instead of “filled.”)
Perhaps the error in Psalm 119 verse 161 in a 1702 version summed it all up: instead of “princes” it read, “printers have persecuted me.” It is known as the Printer’s Bible.

The first book that Johannes Gutenberg printed in 1454 was the Bible. It is thought that he printed about 180 copies, known as the 42-line Bible, of which significant parts of 48 copies still survive. Gutenberg did not make any printing errors.

Makes us wonder if it was a thou shalt not or a thou shalt !!! 🙂 (Evil grin)

Today I had my body broken in a one hour workout sculpting class at the gym. I guess it serves me right for trying to act off by using heavier weights. Now I have profound respect for all the people who work out at the gym especially the women. And may I add I have successfully continued to go to the gym for the second month in a row.

Some updates from the Falcon foundation in India. As a pilot project before starting a full blown orphanage, evening after school programs have been started for kids in the slums since last week. The response so far has been unbelievable. We have had to turn back some children, as our budget right now is only able to support around 40 to 50 kids. We are hoping that we would be able to increase it soon.

The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creature that cannot.
