What this thread is about is do you accept the entire Bible?  INI see that many do reject the letters of Paul as being truly inspired.  Are there ones here that only accept the Hebrew scriptures but not the Greek (that is, a Judaic form of Rasta, or others)?  Are there ones that accept the entire Bible except believe it has been corrupted?  Just would like to hear ones reason on the matter.

INI accept the entire Bible, but try to refer back to the original languages AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.  I don't believe the scriptures themselves were ever lost in their purest form, but merely that we have to keep "seeking for it as for silver."  (Proverbs 2:4) Silver is not found in sheets like gold, but rather in specks throughout the rock and in order to actually put it together it needs to be smelted 7x and the dross scraped away.  So it is a much more difficult metal to find and retain into pure silver (Ag) form.  Similarly, if we kick away the corruption of the Hebrew/Aramaic/Greek => Latin => English => whatever other language, and get interlinear bibles and do research on the original Semitic and Greek words & scriptures we can obtain the best sense of what the original author, JAH, that is, meant when he inspired the individual to write it.

Therefore, become imitators of JAH, as beloved children - Ephesians 5:1
