And every one that has forsaken houses, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife (ἤ γυναῖκα), or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive a hundred times more, and shall inherit everlasting life.
Verse 29. – …..” Some manuscripts, followed by some modern editors, omit or wife, the omission being probably first made by some critical scribe, who deemed that a wife should never be left. The Lord enumerates the persons and objects upon which men’s hearts are most commonly and firmly fixed.
He begins and ends the list with material possessions – houses and lands, and between them introduces in gradation the most cherished members of the family circle. “Forsaking wife and children” may be understood as abstaining from marriage in order the better to serve God. For my Name’s sake.
In consequence of belief in Christ, rather than do despite to his grace, or in order to confess and follow him more completely…….. An hundredfold. Some read “manifold,” as in Luke 18:30. The spiritual relationship into which religion would introduce him largely compensates for the loss of earthly connections. He shall have brothers and sisters in the faith – hundreds who will show him the affection of father and mother, hundreds who will love him as well as wifeand children. ……….
The hope of future happiness is in itself sufficient to lighten and dissipate all earthly troubles, and to stimulate severest sacrifices.”
This verse is a proof that the bible is altered according to scribes’ own desires.
Almighty Allah is the highest and most knowledgeable, and the attribution of knowledge to him is the safest.
Right from Almighty Allah and wrong from me and Satan

Arrogance is not only a sign of insecurity, but also a sign of immaturity. Mature and fully realised persons can get their points across, even emphatically without demeaning or intimidating others.
