This beautiful verse:

Acts 20:28 (AV)
Take heed therefore unto yourselves,
and to all the flock,
over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers,
to feed the church of God,
which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Is generally known to be a conflation in the Byzantine majority reading,
"church of the Lord and God"

(There is also a reading "church of the Lord" which contributed to the conflation.)

Have you looked at the discussions and apparatus?
Do you disagree?

NETBible - Daniel Wallace
while the majority of the later minuscule mss conflate these two into “of the Lord and God”

Were Bruce Metzger and Daniel Wallace also involved in this conspiracy theory? :)
