CBDF has for a good while used the NET Bible Tagger.

The NET Bible is a very good reference source but was found to have bias regarding belief in Trinity, and we, as a community, do not believe the same as example:

Our Beliefs

God
There is only one eternal, immortal God. Jesus Christ is his only begotten son and the Holy Spirit is his power.
Isa 45:5-7; Luke 1:35; Acts 1:8; 1Cor 8:6; 1Tim 1:17; 2:5

Man
Man is mortal and a sinner before God. His whole being is prone to sin and the punishment for sin is death the end of all life.
Jer 17:9; Mark 7:21-23; Rom 3:23; James 1:13-15; Rom 6:23; Ecc 9:5-10; Psa 146:4

Jesus
In his love, God sent his son, the man Jesus into the world to save men from their sins. Those who believe in him will not perish, but have everlasting life.
Mat 1:20-21; 3:17; Luke 1:35; John 3:16

Some Important Differences

Often we are asked, "How are you different from other Christian groups"? Apart from our distinctive organisation (with no clergy or hierarchy), some of our doctrines are quite different from most churches.

For example, we reject the doctrine of a 'Trinity'. This doctrine developed in the 300 years after Jesus died as a result of disputes within the orthodox church. The Bible teaches that Jesus was the Son of God but nowhere does it speak of him 'pre-existing' in heaven as "God the Son".

Logos, Reftagger was then installed, but had limitations due to the maximum number of verses shown in the tag (3 verses) therefore, the BLB ScriptTagger which includes up to 7 verses was thought more useful.

The "default" is NKJV (New King James Version) which may not suit the needs of all, but other versions may also be quoted.

The following, if you choose not to use the default NKJV, is the way to quote:

John 1:1 (the default is NKJV)
John 1:1 KJV
John 1:1 NLT
John 1:1 NIV
John 1:1 ESV
John 1:1 RVR
John 1:1 NASB
John 1:1 RSV
John 1:1 ASV
John 1:1 YLT
John 1:1 DBY
John 1:1 WEB
John 1:1 HNV
John 1:1 VUL


LXX, mGNT and TR are also available, but @ the BLB site.

Example and various versions used in the one post:

Exodus 2:2 NLT; Genesis 1:3 NIV; Revelation 1:5 ESV; Matthew 1:10

"Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer."
Colossians 4:6 NIV
