Handwritten draft of King James Bible discovered: Reveals no ‘divine powers’

. . . Some people have such a need to believe. “Actual word of God”. Everyone has the choice to believe what the want. Books of the Bible were removed over time that went against what leaders – Kings and religious leaders – wanted people to know – for the propose of controlling the masses. It’s why all mention of karma was removed. There needed to be a fear of hell. If people understood karma they would know there was no actual “place” called hell. The Catholic Church couldn’t have that. The church is just another business – just like it is today. People at the time needed to be kept ignorant. Today ignorance is choice. In earlier days people weren’t taught to read. Only monks could read. They needed to control what people knew. People were killed if they believed anything else. There was a King James “version” so the king could be on equal footing with the pope. You don’t think the Bible was changed then, too? It’s like gossip. Every time a story is told it is changed. Each person adds their own interpretation. Those that think every word is fact and came from God is a bit naive.

Finding Truth In an Illusory World

SOURCE

The earliest known version of The King James Bible, perhaps one of the most influential and widely read books in history, has been discovered mislabeled inside an archive at the University of Cambridge. The find is being called one of the most significant revelations in decades. It shows that writing is a process of revising, cutting, and then more rewriting. The Bible is no different in this regard, even though some conservative Christians claim it is the divine word of God himself. Perhaps God, then, is a revisionist. This find certainly seems to suggest that.

The notebook containing the draft was found by American scholar, Jeffrey Alan Miller, an assistant professor of English at Montclair State University in New Jersey, who announced his research in an article in The Times Literary Supplement. The New York…

Prison: Reflections and Realizations

I’m a prisoner in California serving a life sentence. This blog really isn’t about me, it’s about us, prisoners who grew up in dysfunctional environments. It will explain why we’ve made the terrible choices we made and how many of us are now struggling to change our lives. There’s a biased belief in society that continues to be passed along and hopefully this blog will show the other side to that negative belief. This blog is for the parents of women unable to openly express their love for a man in chains, to educators of our youth, parents and the lost, I hope these words give you hope and understanding. Hope that change is possible and understanding that we are able to give back something to the world.
