“The bible claims inerrancy, it claims to be 100% true and believable,”

I don’t think Bible has anywhere claimed inerrancy, its claims to be 100% true that are applicable to the whole Bible except the last paragraph of “Revelation”:

Revelation 22:18-19
[18] For I testify to every one that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book: If any man shall add to these things, God shall add unto him the plagues written in this book. [19] And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from these things that are written in this book.

NT Bible is a conglomerate of books; not written by a single author; hence, if at all, this should be applicable to this book Revelation only not to the whole Bible.

Are Christians cut-off from the Tree of Life?

“Revelation 22:18-19 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.”Unquote

I want to share an incident with friends here.

Quite sometimes ago two JWs persons came to my house and told me that there had been no change in the Bible, it is impossible and opened before me the above two passage of Revelation 22:18-19 from the Urdu Protestant Bible (later I came to know that JWs don’t had their own Urdu JW’s Bible at that time, and hence they preferred to follow Protestant Version and not the Catholic Version).

Incidentally I had a Catholic Urdu Bible with me which I was studying very intently, and I was much impressed by its contents.

I brought that and put that on the table. I said let us check both the versions, I did not know as to what the result would be. So we started checking the list of books given in the beginning.

We came to know that there were some six books in the Catholic Urdu OT Bible which were not to be found in the Protestant Bible.

They (the JWs) became pale and upset and went away.

So the addition or diminution of the books; and besides that many passage/verses and chapters missing or adding suggest, please don’t mind, that perhaps both the Protestants and Catholics have been cut off from the tree of life in terms of the above verses of Revelation 22:18-19.

What is the remedy?
Can both the mainstream Christian denominations agree to a version which should be acceptable to both of them and the JWs?

Thanks

Catholics and Protestants: their abode is permanently in confusion

Why is it that Christians today want to loose their identity? The Bible was passed down from the prophets and Apostles and now we have Christians that are trying to look for favour in the eyes of people that do not believe on our GOD
Paarsurrey is confused and does not know whether he is Christian or Muslim. Leave them to their religion and follow what God has given you. Remember Jesus words relevation 22:18-19
18″For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. “(KJV)
Strive to make yourselves worthy in God’s eyes and not look for favour in man.

Hi friend sch

I am not confused. It is rather to save the Catholics Protestants from confusion.

Like the passage you have quoted from NT Bible; this passage is not for the whole of Bible, may be it is intended only for Revelation.

Bible is a collection of many books; the Gospels to start with consisted of some forty Books out of which only four were clubbed together haphazardly; so just by doing this the Catholics Protestants were cut off from the tree of life, if these verses were of any value.

So according to the revelation 22:18-19 the Catholics Protestants are suffering from the plague of confusion and are out of the holy city. Form the time Paul and Church invented Trinity for them; the Catholics’ and Protestants’ abode is permanently in confusion.

I wish that they come out of this confusion.
Further, the verses are not written by Jesus as you have written but are ascribed to John.

I think you now understand.

I love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran

Thanks
