Why should we believe YOU over what God has said?
The actual and better question is, "What proof is there that there IS a god?".

Go ahead, try and answer that without referencing your bible.

Why should we believe your assertion without evidence rather than what we do know about probability?

And do not forget, you too are a talking head.

Suppose it really does come down to which god you are listening to?

And which culture / civilization you are influenced by that decides which man made story about god you listen to?

Not every bible is the same, and early Christians had various sacred scriptures of the Old Testament, there were already Christians before the New Testament even came about. And some Christian denominations have different biblical canons, translations, editions, etc.

There is no one religion or one "true religion". We all are different, have different DNA, souls, backgrounds, paths in life, etc. We will never see spiritual matters the same, and that's the way it is supposed to be. Fighting that and expecting one simple "this is it" is foolishness. Just look at history and even nature. The signs show how it is.

Seeking and searching can lead one in the right direction if it comes from within oneself, and is done freely, openly, and honestly. Nothing will be gained trying to think and do the same as other humans. We'll always be on different frequencies and speaking different languages, so to speak.

It is the ancient manuscripts which support Bible canon.
A paraphrased bible is Not a translation. Translations can be compared to the ancient manuscripts.
So, what the King James added is exposed as spurious.
That does Not make the Bible as wrong or different, but that slipped-in errors are exposed.
Because the Bible has cross-reference verses and passages that shows the internal harmony among Bible writers.
The apocryphal books simply exclude themselves being out of harmony with the '66' Bible books.

I don't find the ^ above ^ to be the case as found at ww.jw.org.
I find there is a BIG difference between the Bible's hell, and a religious-myth hell just taught as being Scripture.
