To say that only your religion is based on absolute truths, invites a sane world to impose the mandatory wearing of a straightjacket!

The English New Testament (NT) that we read today, was basically written by Greek, and Latin scholars.  With translators using two or more text types of the biblical manuscripts available.  Of course, there were Aramaic, Hebrew, Syriac, Armenian, and other manuscripts to chose from.  Yet, NT translators seem to be adding their own definition of what should be printed in the scriptures.  One only has to check the various versions, with a new copyright version coming out every two to three years.  It is big business for these evangelical publishers, who can add their perverse bigotry, willy-nilly, without the fear of reprisals.  However, if the tables were turned, they would vehemently protest and defend their God from all accusations, true or not.

Christianity is the only religion based in absolute truths.”—Ed Senter commenting (11/06/24) to Ailsa Beresford on the discussion—“The Christian argument, and secular answers!” There is no such thing as absolute Truth in any version of the New Testament, be it the KJV or NIV or any other version. What we can say with absolute certainty, is that the NT is tainted with contradictions, and controversies, as well as interpolations inserted by copyist. The rediscovery of Codex Sinaiticus in the mid 19th-century, revealed the fake flaws, and the work of forgers of the NT. With the origin of Mark 16 finishing on verse 8. That verses 9-20 were forgeries, and the same can be said of the trinity verses in 1 John 5:7-8.  What about the story of the adulteress that is usually printed in Bibles as John 7:53-8:11 is a later addition to the Gospel.  Then we have the only-begotten son, John 1:18, however, the more primitive (older) manuscripts, agree that the wording shows to be my only-begotten God.  Μονογενὴς θεός (God), not μονογενὴς υἱός (son).  There are over 5,600 + Greek manuscripts (MSS) in extant, which have accrued between 300,000 to 400,000 anomalies.  The distinguished Prof. Bart D. Ehrman, has pointed out to great rhetorical force, “There are more variant readings in the manuscripts of the New Testament than there are words in the New Testament.”  However, most anomalies are scribal errors, spelling mistakes, and some big like the few shown above, and lots of forged and pseudepigrapha or apocrypha if you are Catholic. states (according to Wikipedia) that there are 450 Bible English versions, Is there any need for that, the answer is NO!

So how can Ed boast that his Christian religion is of absolute truths. The NT itself is a copy of a copy, several times over, and the amount of errors, is astronomical, along with forged, and pseudepigrapha/apocrypha works.  For Ed to assume that Christianity is based on the absolute truth, then he must also, class the rest of the Abrahamic religions as such: Judaism, Samaritanism, Islam, Yazidi, Mandeans, Druze, Babism, Bahá’í Faith, Rastafari, etc.  Without whom, Christianity could not claim to be part of the Abrahamic Religion.  One also has to admit that Judaism and Samaritanism are far older than Christianity, from whom it derives its faith.
