Yes you choose which is a better translation. You are choosing which translation suits you personally by dismissing by choice the others.
This is exactly what was done when the bibles was put together, scriptures were chosen. They say we have 80.000 different versions of the bible in the World and all 80.000 of them are the correct translation, choice is yours....[/quote]
I do not know where you get 80,000 different versions of the Bible but then I am not really interested in knowing.
As for choosing a better translation: there are numerous translations that same basically the same thing. You might be surprise how little the variations are from Bible to Bible.
As for me, I prefer not using archaic English words. It is my choice but then, a lot other people have made the same choice.
You will find this is true of other belief systems including Buddhism.
