"Yeah, go with the ESV.  It is free online and pretty good.  Sometimes it is best if you read the ESV and quote the KJV to Christians.  Then they will guide you to "their" translation. I think your angle is good.  You…"

I would like to hear your opinions and arguments on these verses.I love these versus to argue with Christians because most Christians I meet say that they have UNQUESTIONING faith in their god. Yet these verses of the bible preach that such blindness is a  symptom of a person who has "builds an idol" for himself!!

"(also, I use this example because, much like religion, science is a system of beliefs, but one with a set of logic that we can, more or less, agree on.) Perhaps I should make clearer what I mean by "easier" first. Perhaps this statement is…"
