Absurd beliefs....

If you browse around various church websites you will soon find a statement of faith that contains something like the following:

We believe…

That the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully Inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice. (emphasis added)

So the scriptures are without error in their original manuscripts? What's the bloody point? The original manuscripts are long gone, turned to dust and lost to time. There is literally no way to know how true to the originals the existing translations really are. Hell, the originals could claim that Jesus wanted everyone to run around naked and fuck dolphins for all we know!

Insanity. Really.
