Yes. I've reproduced the beginning and end of it in two of my blogs. A sad, misguided thing to read in the Easter season.

Mostof the founding fathers were deist and freemasons, not Christians.

Yes, I have--and I've seen a copy or two. Some people talk about the Founding Fahers as if they were new Apostles of Christ. But if people were to look at the JB (amongst other things Jefferson said the Virgin Birth was as absurd as the birth of Athena from the head of Zeus), they would be quite shocked.

RE "Thomas Jefferson was a great "statesman" in our nation's history, but, the fact that he chose to delete portions of scripture that he disagreed with only shows his human faults. "

Did Jefferson do anything much different than what was done at the Nicene Council? Why not complain about the church playing god with the bible?

(Revelation 22: 18-19 )18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. 19And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

What's the name of this so called bible book T.J. wrote ?

Amen, I'm with you Jack and Elder!

Thomas Jefferson was a great "statesman" in our nation's history, but, the fact that he chose to delete portions of scripture that he disagreed with only shows his human faults. I'm sure he knows differently now about the miracles he didn't believe in when he walked on this earth.

When you're limited to 85 words, it's hard to treat something comletely.

My point: If the Founding Fathers were alive today, most members of the Christian right who voted for Bush would condemn them as "lieberals" or "Demoncrats" on the basis of their religious beliefs. Very few would be considered to be "Bible-believing Christians" by today's standards.

You know, Steve, we are blessed today to have a greater understanding of the inerrancy of Scriptures. Perhaps Thomas Jefferson didn't have the advantage of baptism in the Holy Spirit, Bible study groups, mentors and on-fire pastors who could advise him. There is no doubt that Jefferson was a shining light in our founding history used by God mightily inspite of his level of understanding. We shall be forever indebted.

This seems to be a good example of why we are to be followers of Christ not of men.

I think that Thomas Jefferson was a great man in American history. He contributed so much that it's astounding! I am particularly interested in the "Lewis and Clark" corp of discovery and their adventures. With that said, if he did in fact change the bible than he will have to answer to God. The Word of God is most important!

He sounds rather like the former Bishop of Durham over here in the U.K. He described the resurrection as a 'conjuring trick with bones' and wasn't too impressed with other miracles either. When we meet God we will each be answerable for ourselves.

My faith is not in Thomas Jefferson, nor the Founding Fathers.
---Elder on 5/28/05


I, also, have heard about Thomas' "version" of the Bible. I first heard about it in high school. Apparently, he considered the miracles in the Bible to be fairy tales and myths and had personally cut them out of his personal copy of the Bible, keeping only the parts that he considered truthful.
