Re: Bible Translations dilemma
IMHO its what version that makes you comfortable .I use multiple translations as well and you are right some things are missing in some and added in others but the theme and teaching is the same and hasn't changed .
Phillipians 4: 8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable -- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy -- think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me -- put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. (NIV)
