The bible should not be revised. It is a piece of ancient history and revising or updating it would demolish it's purpose for existence.

I believe that the bible should be revised because like the bill of rights it may go out dated and needs to be changed a little bit for the times.

It is important to change laws and other things to update them. But not the Bible because it is a historical document. You can't change it, for better or worse. It shows how things were back then and changing it alters our view on the history. I can't be revised just because you would like to change how history happened. It's history!

kaydee......Those actions are what Jesus came to answer to. Christianity is not a religion. It is God and his family. It has had religions made out of it. And that is where the problem lies. Religious people were Jesus's greatest enemies.Because he shone light on their behavior.Even the Roman, Pontus Pilate , did not see anything wrong with Jesus. But the hatred for him by the religious community won out on that day.

The bible needs to explain why we have petifolds, rapist and other evil things in life. why are religious people involved in these evil acts?

The word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword, dividing asunder the soul and spirit, and of the body, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intent of the heart.

Technology has changed, but the heart of man has not. That is why the word is relevant today and will be forever.

I don't care either way. Although they could do away with the parts about killing homosexuals and disobedient children...
