Story on NPR

Scholars at the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary have spent 11 years combing through early New Testament manuscripts, looking at how they've evolved over the centuries. And what they found may surprise some believers.

'Many Christians believe that the words of the New Testament are set in stone'

Well they are idiots. Even religious followers know that really the holy books are the result of human beings over long periods of time and are the result of different peoples interests over that time.
Even with this study who is to say that there aren't many other variations that say something even more away from the modern ideas.

Are even the only things set in stone (the Ten Commandments) actually set in stone?
