Do let me know if you can answer the question before the end. This was given to me in 8th Grade as part of preparation for Confirmation.

 There were 26 of us in the class for confirmation.  It was to assist us in reviewing all we had learned about our religion and decide on our own if we were going to proceed and get confirmed.

The Assistant Bishop who was teaching this gave us two challenges.

1.  To attend the services for 4 to 7 other faiths and at the next class after we had attended tell everyone our opinion of it.  It did take some time, but we were competitive and each week a number had done it.  All  of the class were surprized about what we learned.

     My view point --  I attended a service at these Parishes Luthern, Episcopalian, Methodist, and Orthadox Polish.  I learned and found out there was  very little difference in what there was between the Service I attended at my Parish and these.  

     I did miss the Baptist Service, but when I did get to the church one of the Ministers did two things.  He did tell me what a service was like and what was done.  That was in addtion to getting a tour  of the Church and that was of what is the true First Baptist Church in USA.  Founded by Roger Williams in RI.
     I also did not get to the local Synagougue.  The Rabbi did about the same as the Baptist Minister but not a full "tour" of the building.
     Still found more in commen than different. 

2. The second challenge is one I have posted to others and they all had a hard time and found there was a lot in solving it just as all 26 of us did.  None did actually.

He gave us this quote of a prayer.  This is not the langague that it comes from.  You can subsitue a new name or term at the word I have Bolded in  GREEN.  I look forward to any comments.  

" My Lord

          You are everywhere and in everything.

          Today I choose to worship you in this manner.


Here is the answer.  Oh and all of us were standing up when he told us and ended up sitting on the floor.  It is the words that are used by a number of Hindu's to start their prayers.  I did have a number of scientists (various professions) that I knew and most I talked to agreeded any changes the names to terms with scientific viewpoint still worked in this statement.

Comments?  Thoughts?

You are correct. The translations from all the languages are part of the different views of the Bible. Oddly from a Jewish friend of my family I learned that re translations have also occurred for their Books. This "fun" applies across all faiths. Even some scientific papers.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 10/10/2013
Of course, many biblical sounding truisms are really philosophical or ethical and other words can be substituted quite easily. That is why we cannot literally say the Bible is correct because the Bible was translated from many sources in several languages and the translators (and their rich benefactors like King James) made sure that the “right words” were in the Bible so that, upon repetition and indoctrination, like confirmation often is, the followers will all believe the same thing and quote the same biblical passages over and over to reinforce the thoughts imposed by the church. Since you altered church dogma, you may have shocked a few people with your statement.
