The Bible Throughout the Years

Submitted by Stephen Winters

If we make a claim that God wrote the Bible through the hands of men, and that it was perfect, infallible, inerrant in it's original documents, then we would also have to believe that God was also in control of all the people that copied and translated the bible throughout the milenia of time. If that was true, then why was the Bible locked away for centuries in Latin, only available to the priests and monks? If the Bible was truly the Word of God, then why did God not make it immediately available to all people from the very beginning. If God is God, can't he do anything that he wants? Is He not the Lord of all creation?

If the Bible was the Word of God to us, would God not make sure that only the true and accurate copies of His word were available to all people throughout time? Why are there some many translations. Why are the translators continually "correcting" and "improving" the various translations? If the Bible is truly the Word of God to us, is he not able to give us accurate translations at all times?
