One reason the Church objected to translation of the Bible was that they
were afraid that bad translations would lead to heresies arising.  There
was some reason behind this.  Translations are inevitably not exact,
particularly between non-related languages (such as Hebrew or Aramaic and
an Indo-European language) and when vernacular Bibles began to appear, new
"heresies" sprang up like mushrooms after a spring rain.

Gwynne: Very true. There's a big difference between 'Thou shalt not kill' and
'Thou shalt do no murder.'
