If you start with a translation of the Bible from the Greek and Latin tradition of Christianity, and quote a selection of verses from various books of the Old and New Testaments, you can prove just about any theological doctrine you may wish.
Here is a picture of the Thomas Jefferson Bible. He literally cut it up with a blade. For example, he thought the story of the Raising of Lazarus was ridiculous, so he cut it out. If you do not believe that Eashoa (Jesus) raised Lazarus, then how are you going to believe the story of the Resurrection of Eashoa Msheekha?

The problem with Protestant Christianity is that whenever a doctrine does not sound reasonable, according to the individual interpreting the Bible, you are allowed to skip it or explain it in a different way. For example, if someone does not believe in the Trinity, they find an assortment of verses from various books of the Bible, translated from the Greek New Testament and the Septuagint Old Testament, and they draw the conclusion that the Trinity is a false doctrine.
When you pick and choose verses from various books of mistranslated Bibles there is no telling what you may come up with. This is the major problem I'm facing with my translation project. The Scriptures I'm translating from are hand copied versions of the original Scriptures compiled by the Apostles of Eashoa Msheekha. They are in the Leeshana Ateeqah (Ancient Tongue,) Ancient Aramaic, the language Eashoa Msheekha spoke and read from in the synagogues of Judea two thousand years ago. These have been faithfully copied and preserved by the Ancient Church of the East for two thousand of years.
There is no point in debating with people about the authenticity of my translation. The proof is before your eyes. Look at the official publication of the Thomas Jefferson Bible. Is this the Christianity you want?
