2Th 2:15 So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter.
By "traditions," Saint Paul did NOT mean cultic-catholic and heretic-ecclesiastical rituals concocted now and then by those described as:
2Co 11:13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.
Eph 4:14 so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the cunning of men, by their craftiness in deceitful wiles.

Jude 1:3 Beloved, being very eager to write to you of our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.
4 For admission has been secretly gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
Instead, the LORD's true Word and will is received, preserved, and conveyed to others as described with:
De 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations,
1Sa 2:9 "He will guard the feet of his faithful ones; but the wicked shall be cut off in darkness; for not by might shall a man prevail.
1Sa 2:35 And I will raise up for myself a faithful priest, who shall do according to what is in my heart and in my mind; and I will build him a sure house, and he shall go in and out before my anointed for ever.

Ps 101:6 I will look with favor on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me; he who walks in the way that is blameless shall minister to me.
Pr 14:5 A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness breathes out lies.

Ho 11:12 Ephraim has encompassed me with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit; but Judah is still known by God, and is faithful to the Holy One.
1Co 4:17 Therefore I sent to you Timothy, my beloved and faithful child in the Lord, to remind you of my ways in Christ, as I teach them everywhere in every church.
1Th 5:24 He who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.
2Th 3:3 But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from evil.
1Ti 1:12 I thank him who has given me strength for this, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he judged me faithful by appointing me to his service,
2Ti 2:2 and what you have heard from me before many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
2Ti 2:13 if we are faithless, he remains faithful--for he cannot deny himself. Heb 3:2 He was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in God's house.
Heb 3:5 Now Moses was faithful in all God's house as a servant, to testify to the things that were to be spoken later,

Re 2:13 "'I know where you dwell, where Satan's throne is; you hold fast my name and you did not deny my faith even in the days of Antipas my witness, my faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.
Whether a human (usually a male one) is faithful in the sense of having actually received the words of God (by whatever outside physical or inwardly Divinely-inspired mental means, audibly or in writing) and then proclaiming to others those exact and precise words (and only those words - not more nor less).....must be substantiated by what happens to that human, plus the results and consequences of that human's declarations not merely for or against himself but also for or against others:
Jer 28:9 As for the prophet who prophesies peace, when the word of that prophet comes to pass, then it will be known that the LORD has truly sent the prophet."
Mt 7:16 You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles?
Mt 7:20 Thus you will know them by their fruits.
Which brings us into the subject of the questionable veracity (or lack of validity) of various Hebrew and Greek texts and manuscripts upon which various English translations of and mistranslations against The HOLY BIBLE are based.
We have seen the phrase "late manuscripts" used by bible editors to qualify various doubtful verses or wordings of the Bible.
WHAT is THAT supposed to mean?
Were such "manuscripts" (if they deserve to be called that) connived at a certain past date in history and then claimed "discovered?" Or were "older" mistranslated "manuscripts" connived and discovered at some arbitrary point further back in time past which certain so-called "scholars" deem "ancient" and/or "authorities?" It has been said that the trinitarian-referenced verse of First John 5:7 has "merely late Greek manuscript" proof. Does that mean that those were the only Greek-Text manuscripts upon which Christ's Original Twelve Disciples made the on-papyrus-printed autograph? Could it mean that there are other older Greek manuscripts based on those autographs which have not yet been discovered? And because those other older manuscripts have not yet been discovered, does that mean that the "late Greek manuscripts" now available (discovered by Erasmus) were and are wrong and inaccurate? Could not the true words of the Lord been preserved through the Middle Ages also in Latin?
Why do newer "bible" [mis]translations use the words "younger widows" instead of "younger women" for First Timothy 5:14? Why do they not state that: "It is good for a HUMAN (Gr. anthropos, or whatever similar-root Greek word the Text states) to not touch a woman" instead of the incorrect wording: "It is good for a MAN to not touch a woman?"
Joh 19:20 Many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, in Latin, and in Greek.
What is crucial (those not necessarily "critical") and vital in determining validity or invalidity of Bible translations and bible mistranslations is God's physical acts of circumstances and coincidences and the overruling effects and influences of the Holy Spirit in not only preserving True Scriptural Text and destroying false pseudo-scriptural texts but also proving and exposing what is actually true as true while proving and exposing what is actually false as false. For those who sincerely and devoutly ask the Lord questions, He will answer - sooner or later:
Job 33:12 "Behold, in this you are not right. I will answer you. God is greater than man.
Job 33:13 Why do you contend against him, saying, 'He will answer none of my words'?
Job 35:4 I will answer you and your friends with you.
Ps 20:6 Now I know that the LORD will help his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with mighty victories by his right hand.
Ps 91:15 When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will rescue him and honor him.

Eze 14:7 For any one of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, who separates himself from me, taking his idols into his heart and putting the stumbling block of his iniquity before his face, and yet comes to a prophet to inquire for himself of me, I the LORD will answer him myself;
Ho 2:21 "And in that day, says the LORD, I will answer the heavens and they shall answer the earth;
Hab 2:1 I will take my stand to watch, and station myself on the tower, and look forth to see what he will say to me, and what I will answer concerning my complaint.
Zec 10:6 "I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph. I will bring them back because I have compassion on them, and they shall be as though I had not rejected them; for I am the LORD their God and I will answer them.
Zec 13:9 And I will put this third into the fire, and refine them as one refines silver, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on my name, and I will answer them. I will say, 'They are my people'; and they will say, 'The LORD is my God.'"
The LORD has a thousand and one (plus many more) ways to execute dishonest, conniving, and deceitful liars, and however He choses to annihilate in execution such divisive and demonic trouble-causers is His preference in so doing. The myriads within graveyards and cemeteries of the deceased and silenced are amply vindication. He has destroyed such wicked beings in the past, is doing so now, and will continue to do so:
Le 20:3 I myself will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people, because he has given one of his children to Molech, defiling my sanctuary and profaning my holy name.
Le 20:5 then I will set my face against that man and against his family, and will cut them off from among their people, him and all who follow him in playing the harlot after Molech.

De 17:12 The man who acts presumptuously, by not obeying the priest who stands to minister there before the LORD your God, or the judge, that man shall die; so you shall purge the evil from Israel.
De 29:20 The LORD would not pardon him, but rather the anger of the LORD and his jealousy would smoke against that man, and the curses written in this book would settle upon him, and the LORD would blot out his name from under heaven.
Job 1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, one who feared God, and turned away from evil.
Ps 10:18 to do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, so that man who is of the earth may strike terror no more.
Jer 20:16 Let that man be like the cities which the LORD overthrew without pity; let him hear a cry in the morning and an alarm at noon,
Jer 23:34 And as for the prophet, priest, or one of the people who says, 'The burden of the LORD,' I will punish that man and his household.

Lu 22:22 For the Son of man goes as it has been determined; but woe to that man by whom he is betrayed!"
Joh 10:1 "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber;
2Th 3:14 If any one refuses to obey what we say in this letter, note that man, and have nothing to do with him, that he may be ashamed.
Why would partially-evil bible mistranslators want to mistranslate parts against The HOLY BIBLE? Why did they do it? What was their motivation?
In every case, the fault was human error - not God's fault - and the Lord is not to blame. And what were the human errors motivated by? Fear of man, and not fear of God is THE MAIN cause. Added to that, certain prudes and/or certain libertarians would not approve of correct and accurate wording of parts of Scripture, so polluted and errant substitutions were concocted and printed in their devious manipulations of conspiring to abrogate and override Scripture-Text wording with artificial constrictions of "grammar" and/or "context" and/or "interpretation." Perhaps lustful intervention of a seductive young woman was why one interlinear-bible translator (Berry) weirdly and wrongly mentioned Phoebe as the author of the New Testament book of Romans at the end of his edition of Romans. Virginia Mollenkot was purportedly one of the NIV translators, and she has been exposed as an avowed lesbian. Possibly certain cultic-catholic popes and "church" "doctors" have twisted and confused their minds with priest-cannot-marry replacement-promiscuity pedophilia, or secret and covert lascivious liasons with morally-loose licentuous nuns and communicants, resulting in compensatory maryolatry. I could speculate on and on, of course.
God has His ways of authenticating His own Word, and His saints who correctly and honestly convey that authentication to others has happened, happens now, and will continue to happen....despite the opposition of hostile, deceitful, and lying adversaries.
