    That you are lying about me.
    It disappoints me, makes me sad to a degree, but does not surprise me really.
    It certainly is not making me angry.
    I have no desire to hurt you, to do anything negative to you.

    Back on topic...

    Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

    It is not actually a quote from the Bible is it?
    I was giving you the doubt thinking it could be from a modern translation/ paraphrase, but I got curious and googled it.
    So far from your claim that it is back on topic your post is off topic again.

    It's from the Gospel of Max Ehrmann. The fact that your bible doesn't have it is proof that you are following a cult.

    Find me a published Bible which contains the Gospel of Max Ehrmann and you might have a point.

    Why would that make a difference? Was Christianity not a religion before the invention of moveable type printing?

    Indeed; that's why a few of us indulge RW from time to time.

    I think you will find people used hand writing to copy the Bible.

    For anyone who did not see the other thread, the expression used here just means "male". This is from the KJV and it is rendered more clearly for the modern Bible reader in most other translations.

    But it was not in it when it was published. Stop being deliberately stupid, you are smarter than your actions today have displayed.

    I fail to see your hang up on it being published when you seem happy with people hand-copying texts. It's not like there is a peer-review process.
