what is the most accurate bible translation - Young's Literal
Young's Literal Translation of the Bible
Robert Young's 1898 edition of his translation. This is the third and last edition that he produced. Translation uses the same Elizabethian language that the King James Version uses. However, being a strictly literal translation, the word order is different from the KJV, so it does read different than the KJV and can be difficult at times to read. Being a strictly literal translation makes it the perfect study tool. You can now see exactly what God said and how He said it. There is no changing of words, no softening of words or passages, just translated strictly as it was written in the original languages. Text is done in 9 point print, which is larger and easier to read than the print sizes used in the past by other publishers. Sturdy 4-color hardback cover. This translation will allow the reader to see exactly what God said and will allow a more precise study of the Bible. How can a reader study a Bible when the translators have have interpreted instead of translated? The vast number of modern translation interpret (tell you what they thought God meant) instead of translate (tell you what God actually said). When Robert Young translated this edition, he was not trying to please or appease someone, he was not trying to be politically correct, he was not translating in an attempt to rewrite the Bible to fit his theological beliefs. With this Bible, you get the word of God and nothing but the word of God.
This, then, is how you should pray...
My uncle, his wife, another Iraqi gentleman and I had the privilege of joining a wonderful congregation a couple days ago and my uncle’s wife asked if someone could pray for Iraq and Iraqis scattered all over the world. (Even though she is not an Iraqi but she is a wonderful child of God who has a loving heart towards all God’s creation.) She even brought an Iraqi flag with her!
Just in case you don’t know yet: I am from Iraq. I was born in Baghdad, but was raised in a city north of Baghdad until the age of 16. I roughly spend two thirds of my life in Iraq.
A lot of people in Canada have hard time understanding how a person can be from Iraq and Christian! It is as if God’s grace has boundaries. I had teachers in high school year after year ask me if I was fasting in Ramadan and year after year I would tell them that I was a Christian…somehow they could not distinguish faith from nationality. So let me explain a few simple concepts:
Iraqi: that’s my nationality, and now I am also Canadian.
Arabic: that my language of origin but now I also speak English.
Christianity: that’s my faith.
It is not that hard. For example, a person can be Canadian, speaks French and a Christian. I am also an Arab: a person who speaks Arabic. You see, there is not such a thing as Iraqi language, or Egyptian language or Saudi Arabian language, because they all speak one language and that’s Arabic. (Hoever, there are MANY dialects!) In total there are 22 Arabic countries in Africa and Asia, with a combined population of some 325 million people.
Let me also explain what is written on the flag. The two words are “Allah Ak-bur” which mean “God is great”, or “God is almighty”. There is also a misconception about the word Allah in the west. The word Allah is the Arabic word for God. So when you read the Bible in Arabic the word Allah is used for God. It does not belong to a certain religion; it belongs to a language. For example, my name, Fadi, is an Arabic name which means: the person who gives his life to save another life. (I guess the closest English translation to it are “Saviour”, or “Redeemer”. But this is not completely accurate because in Arabic we have two words for someone who saves another: one is a general word for a person who saves someone else’s life or from hurt, etc; the other is, Fadi, is for someone who gives his life to save someone else’s life.) Of course, it is used mainly by Christians because of our Lord, Jesus Christ, gave His life to save ours. But that does not mean the name Fadi is a Christian name; Fadi is an Arabic word that can be used by anyone.
Here is my favourite scripture about our God’s awesomeness, might, and power, Deuteronomy 10:17-18:
For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the alien, giving him food and clothing.
Now I want to talk about a topic I think most Christians won’t like. But I feel burdened to talk about it. So please if you start reading the next line keep reading to the end…otherwise you will get the wrong idea.
Growing up in a Christian family meant I had neutral feelings towards Israel or the Jews. But as I started reading the Bible starting from the Old Testament at the age of 16 I started to be really impressed by the Jews because of their rich history, God’s mighty work among them, and lasting legacy. When all other civilizations disappeared they still existed. And being a teenager and wanting to find a purpose in life and belonging to something I really considered going to Israel and becoming a Jewish Rabbi!!! Later on when I came to Canada and started reading novels about the Holocaust I again admired the Jews for their endurance.
However, at the age of 16 I accepted Jesus Christ in my life, and so when I moved to Canada and started growing in my relationship with Him I started to see things differently. The more I understood Him the more I realized He cares about both Jews and Arabs. The more I knew Him the more I realized He loved and desired to save all people regardless of their history or religious beliefs.
Among Christians however, I saw a different picture. I see, all the time, on TV, ministries, pastors, and TV hosts say, “Let’s bow down to pray for peace in the Middle East”, and when they start praying all they ask for is for the safety of the nation of Israel and for the Jews to be saved! Since there are other countries in the Middle East beside Israel and they are at war with Israel and we only pray for the safety of Israel, then for God to answer those prayers He pretty much has to destroy all those nations around Israel and the people living there! It does not sound like a prayer our Lord Jesus Christ would pray, does it?
Not once I have heart a pastor pray for Iraq or Afghanistan! We see those nations as our “enemies” and

Week 12 Theme: Churches
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
* I love the architecture of LDS Temples/Tabernacles. This one in Detroit is probably the plainest one I have yet to see. Yet it still has a plain beauty to it. I really love the one in San Diego, especially lit up at night. Arcitecture aside, as a Christian I don't agree with the beliefs of the LDS. They are for the most part very good and kind people that genuinely follow what they believe. The problem I have is not with the people, but with their beliefs. They believe in Jesus Christ as created by God and add to the Bible other books as God's word. Theses additions are the Book of Mormon and the Book of Abraham given to and divinley translated by Joseph Smith. Egyptologists have translated the papyri he translated as the Book of Abraham and his translation was completely inaccurately translated. Archaeology or history have yet to prove any basis for the Book of Mormon. The proof of the Bible being an accurate book is strong through historical and archaeological evidence. Proof of an actual man named Jesus Christ existing and doing what is recorded in the Bible is strong. Including what most of us Americans go to church to celebrate (or at least go have brunch) in a little over a week, Easter: His death, burial and unique resurrection proving His claim to be God. While I do commend them for their good works and faith, I believe that they are placing their hope in the wrong place.

How does the Bible speak to my life? This is a burning question for many readers, who may be enchanted by the words and stories but uncertain how to bring the Bible into modern-day living. Each page of the Life Application Study Bible offers numerous footnoted passages that suggest contemporary meanings, helping readers be less literal and more metaphorical in their thinking.
For example, when handling the topic of adultery, the old scripture says that a suspicious husband and his accused wife must visit a priest, who will ask the wife to "drink a jar of bitter water that brings a curse to those who are guilty." If she is not guilty, no harm will come to her. Yes, it would be rather odd to try this nowadays, but the Life Application Study Bible explains that this ritual is a metaphor for building trust. "Today priests and pastors help restore marriages by counseling couples who have lost faith in each other. Whether justified or not, suspicion must be removed for a marriage to survive and trust to be restored." The Life Application Study Bible comes with an index, listing appropriate passages that speak to specific topics and situations. It also includes color maps and timelines of biblical events.
