    Peopleare quoting the book of revelation a lot and follow it blindly. lets not forget that it was a dream that john had, a dream. He speaks of creatures with eyes on the inside and outside in the book. u have too much to eat, this happens.

    For those who dont know:
    the authors of the Gospels:

    The quotations from the Book of Acts you mentioned are very interesting, and certainly worth thinking about. But for me what's most important about these passages is the experience of Paul himself-an experience so powerful it changed his life forever. I think that is the essence that needs to be remembered.

    As for the variations in the details, I don't know the reason for those, but here is one explanation just off the top of my head. Two of the quotes used were of Paul's recollection of the events as explained to others. Would it somehow be unthinkable that Paul's recollection of the details, apart from the personal experience he himself had had, were somewhat unclear, or could change with time? He fell to the ground as he was confronted with a incomprehensible light and voice from heaven, which left him temporarily blind. How much was he really aware at that moment of what the others around him were experiencing? Did they fall to the ground, did they see the same light and hear the same voice? He probably would have had to depend on what they told him afterwards, and it is possible that their accounts to him also varied. But nothing could change for him the reality of the experience he had himself, so powerful that it completely shifted the worldview of a very stubborn man.

    As it happens, I agree with you - but I am also quite prepared to respect that others believe in whatever they believe to be "The truth".

    As do I. You will notice that out of respect I said "whatever the truth is for you".

    What is that exactly and I agree with you that there is only 1

    I agree with that

    so you are not really sure yourself.

    Oh OK, and what is your evidence.

    Which word exactly do you mean the bible. the bible has been changed does that make it not the complete truth. The Quran has not changed so what does that say for it.

    The Quran is created by Satan.
    The Bible is created by God.

    Enough Said, Arguing with you about this is warned about in the Bible.

    Prove it.
    How? I just asked a question. So if the bible has been changed does that make it not the absolute truth as you said. You said it doesn't change.

    argueing? I just asked a question.

    Really, Are you sure about that. Read Gail riplinger book a fellow christian of yours called New Age Bible Versions and tell if it has been altered or changed.

    so why was the original KJV changed. The AV Bible, King James Version, AV 1611
