6 lies or Lie to me

I think the crux of the meaning of the bible lies in the translation from the original Hebrew.

For instance, the ten commandments could have been translated as the ten promises, as the hebrew word means both. And the word shalt in Hebrew has no tense, so it could have meant "shall in future", hence the ten commandments become the ten promises by God that all mankind shall eventually not kill, not covet oxes etc. etc. which actually makes some sense.

Also the phrase "no man shall lie with another man" apparently originally included the additional "in his wife's bed" which obviously completely alters the meaning, inplying it's OK to do it elsewhere.

Anyway it's all a bunch of cobblers, innit?
