To all be blessed!

With unsteady fingers and a gripping fear that I may tread on some toes I write on this topic.

First I would do good to get a interpetation and then focus my comments within those bounds.

In the vast arena of knowledge one can easily make an error in ones interpretation of the actual events that prompted the words that God has spoken, which is the Bible.

Are their oher translations that include and some exclue what is truly a complete revelation of God's purpose.

A discovery of common thread/s in all text I believe in all the world religions may help to solidify the purpose that we must all undertake.

Can we do this without controversy?

Can someone direct me to a exact,excepted interpretation of the Torah spoken to the Israelites from Moses?

Suppose He Is Doing Research on The Torah


By avoided "Stanley's Question" and making a "statement" does nothing to help him with his Quest.

He asked the Question and proceeded it with a disclaimer that he was walking very tenderly, ...I may tread on some toes...

Stanley could be working on a project and asked the Question in regards to which translation is closest to The Original.

By avoiding the Question with a statement of faith is not answering his Quest. Stanley deserves a better answer than read his Bible. "Christian Doctrine and Torah" were the points listed at the top of the original posting

Is this a correct answer? I would expect a Professor at Bazerkley would give his class, an answer like, read the book, without any discussion or comment, "The test is on Friday" as the answer. But this is not Bazerkley, its Calvin College and The Computer Science Lab that we are using here.

Why does conflict need to take place? Why does the truthful answers come so hard? Avoiding the answer with a statement of fact does nothing to assist Stanley with the correct answer to be given.

Why is it always the debate that comes first and not the answer, if it is known?
