I believe that the Bible has definitely been screened/edited in some fashion to make it more politically correct.

I'm curious if others believe that the Bible or other books have been tampered with.

What is a good reason to edit Gods supposed word?

There are lots of textual variants in the Bible, but no evidence that it was intentionally tampered with for the sake of intentionally changing the meaning or message. The vast majority of the textual variants appear to be innocent copy mistakes with only a few added verses, like the long ending of Mark and the story in John of Jesus and the woman caught in adultery, which don't change anything really.

I haven't studied other versions in depth, but I have seen a few examples where newer versions of the Bible are wording things in ways that aren't in agreement with the earlier versions. Personally, I like the KJV and think that it's probably about as accurate as we're going to find today.

I don't think there is any good reason for editing what is in the KJV.
