I believe they first compiled The Bible as such, around 1500 years ago. I am sure it must have been changed since then but have no examples. Back then it would have been written in Latin. The later translation into English was very controversial, as the Church was not at all certain they wanted just anyone to be able to read the Bible... just the ones who could read Latin and who therefore must also be members of the Church already. In translating one language to another, you can be sure than things get changed. Translating languages is a lot more than plugging one word in for another. But I have nothing specific to show you. I just hope people understand that in real life, biblical people did not go around spewing "thees, thous, begats, wherefores, and unto's". That was the sound of English back when the translating was done.

What Scriptures did the Catholic Church change in the Bible?

Roman Catholic AnswerYou are operating with a mistaken assumption.

The only ones who changed any Scriptures in the Bible are the protestants, who, after fifteen centuries of a Bible preserved by the Catholic Church came along and threw books out of the Bible, and changed the meanings of books they would not throw out.

'where in the scripture it says carry the Bible to church'?

I do not remember any place in the bible where it says to carry your bible to church. This is because when the scriptures were written, there was no bible per-say. The bible as we know it, was not put together until much later. That being said, it is always good to bring your bible to church, to follow the individual giving the sermon, and to check out the accuracy of the teaching.

What chapters were taken out of the Bible?

Catholic AnswerThere were no chapters taken out of the Bible. The Bible is the Word of God, and has been guarded whole and entire by the Catholic Church from the very beginning. The Bible wasn't even divided into chapters until the twelve century, and nobody (at least before Martin Luther) would have had the temerity to go against God and His Church and remove any sections of the Bible. The Bible we have today is the exact same Bible that the Catholic Church defined at the end of the fourth century.
