I admit I might be wrong about that.

I go to a King James church so I asked about this. There really are people who believe that the KJV translation is Inspired I suspect most of them would also teach against alcohol. But Jesus turned water into wine, and wine is the word God inspired....oops. "somethin's gota give"

Don 't you know nuffin'? Except for the stuff in the verses where wine makes you drunk, wine - the kind Paul recommends that used for communion and what the Lord served at the wedding - means "grape juice". So I have been officially informed.

Yeah.. I was taught that one at one point as well.

I think there are people who ACTUALLY do believe it genuinely.

I recently listened to a podcast on why Shakespeare should be modernized for all but those scholars that understand spoken 1600s English. I was surprised how many words she went through that I would have misunderstood. That isn't my biggest issue, however.

I'm not sure any translation has tried hard to translate the Ancient Near East meaning of the Bible for some of the more theological passages... Because of that, we tend to misread things. For instance, Paul wrote to the Corinthians that a woman's long hair is her glory and should be covered. Why is that? Does that mean that a short haircut is wrong or are we missing something or that a woman without a hat is indecent? Some scholars are arguing that the reason for this is not about the length of her hair or what was on their head but because they believed that the hair was part of the reproductive system of women.

If this is true, our beliefs about hair length in churches or the head covering traditions that have split churches are rather silly...
So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. (Rom 8:1 NLT)
