Do you believe the Bible is perfect and if so, which version and why?

The original was perfect. Translations by nature cannot be perfect.
Translations do a darn good job though!

I believe the bible is perfect and I personally read with more than one version, it helps paint a more complete picture.
I don't have a favorite but I have a few that I like.
I don't think one is better than the other.

The 1991 copyrighted Children's Animated Bible (NYC printing) is the one true correct version. The 1993 revision, unfortunately, not nearly as perfect, and the version printed in Toronto is completely ungodly.

The bible is just a book of myth. Just like the Iliad and the Odersy. Actual, it is closer to the tales of King Arthur in that some of the events and people did exist however they have been change to be used to make out a supernatual origin.

II Tim 3:16
No particular version.

The Third New New International Revised Edition is perfect, but only if you translate it into Swahili, then into Klingon, and then back into English, and remove every third word. It contains all the secrets of the Universe, and a good recipe for cherries jubilee.

Every version of the Bible has a severe logical fallacy.
God is love, but...
Deuteronomy (randomly chosen)
# "The Lord destroyed them before them" -- the general treatment of the people who were supposedly displaced by the Israelites. 2:21-22
# All nations shall be terrorized by the followers of Yahweh. 2:25
# God hardened the heart of the king of Heshbon and so that he could have him and all of his people killed. 2:30
# At God's instructions, the Israelites "utterly destroyed the men, women, and the little ones" leaving "none to remain." 2:33-36
# The Israelites, with God's help, kill all the men, women, and children of every city. 3:3-6
# When going to war, don't be afraid. God is on your side; "he shall fight for you." 3:22
# God destroyed the followers of Baalpeor. 4:3
# God brought the Israelites out of Egypt "by war ... and by great terrors." 4:34
# If someone makes an image of anything (like a bird or flower) then God will destroy the entire nation. 4:25-26
# If you worship the wrong god, God will get jealous and kill you. 6:15
# God instructs the Israelites to kill, without mercy, all the inhabitants (strangers) of the land that they conquer. 7:2
# If you do show any mercy to such strangers, "give your daughters to any of them, or "take" any of their daughters, then you'll get God so angry that he'll "destroy thee suddenly." 7:4
# God will kill those who hate him. 7:10
# God commands his people to "consume all the people which the Lord thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity on them." 7:16
# God will send hornets to kill your enemies, "for the Lord thy God is among you, a mighty God and terrible." 7:20-23
# "If thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods ... ye shall surely perish." 8:19-20
# God is "a consuming fire" that destroys people. 9:3
# "The blood of sacrifices shall be poured out ... and thou shalt eat the flesh." Isn't this the sort of thing that Satanists are accused of doing? 12:27
# After God kills those of other faiths, be sure to reject their beliefs and do not learn about them. Otherwise God will have to kill you too. 12:30
# Prophets and dreamers are to be executed if they say or dream the wrong things. 13:1-5
# If your brother, son, daughter, wife, or friend tries to get you to worship another god, "thou shalt surely kill him, thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death." 13:6-10
# If you hear of a city where another god is worshiped, then destroy everyone in the city (even the cattle) and burn it down. (Watch out Salt Lake!) 13:12-16
No "perfect book" would claim to be the word of a loving god who supposedly did and encouraged all those things!

Yes, perfect in making a mockery of human intelligence!
(KJV and NIV, in fact it seems all versions have the same plot!)
