Bible basher

a) A fundamentalist Christian preacher, who is seen to take every opportunity to talk about Christianity and convert those around them, especially against the other peoples wills.

I dont ever go to my local church any more, its become filled with stupid, fuddy-duddy bible bashers...

b) A person who tries to find fault with the Bible, Christianity or Christian teaching.

Im no bible-basher looking to discredit everything I hear, but there is one point that might be interesting to argue...If the bible is the Word of God, which version or language is the official Word, as the meanings change subtley from one to another?
