My questions are : if The Bible can be rewritten by humans at will, what is the difference between it and the self help book de jure ; and, who decides when and where said rewriting should take place ?† †Huh Roll Eyes Wink

Poor Gloster doesn't know that his own religious texts have been rewritten, revised, edited and re-edited repeatedly. One of the lastest attempts can be found here:

I suspect you will not take this challenge but the above link will take you to the oldest known manuscript, The Dead Sea scrolls.† You can go online to view this document and it will translate it for you the book of Isaiah.† You can actually do a comparison of today's versions, say NIV and compare it to the Dead Sea scroll and see for yourself if there are any descrepancies that would validate your insinuation.†

...The Great Isaiah Scroll (1QIsaa) is one of the original seven Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in Qumran in 1947. It is the largest (734 cm) and best preserved of all the biblical scrolls, and the only one that is almost complete. The 54 columns contain all 66 chapters of the Hebrew version of the biblical Book of Isaiah. Dating from ca. 125 BCE, it is also one of the oldest of the Dead Sea Scrolls, some one thousand years older than the oldest manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible known to us before the scrolls' discovery...

I suspect MikeGlosterIII is well informed about the origins of the Bible. Are you suggesting that it should be re-written?

Or do you actually have nothing of value to add to the thread?

I can sum up the bible in two sentences...

Anything that you would find abhorrent, don't do those thing unto others.  The rest is just commentary.

That's not what the Bible is about.
