The Bible is not open to interpretation….. It was written by God for our understanding of the nature of man and to instruct us in our attempts at righteousness and gives us the path to eternal life in His presence. There are many other aspects of understanding also, but the key to reading the Bible is to understand what is being given to us. The fact that the Bible has been used by many for their own purposes and has been interpreted to suit a particular agenda is unfortunate in two ways. The first is that the congregate that is being taught by these altered Bibles is not receiving the great benefits offered by God to His believers; and the second is that the person that originally altered the Word is in very serious trouble with God !!!
There are many different books being used that claim to be the Bible, but they are merely interpreted words.These books have been around for a very long time and many people have learned what they believe they know from these books. Over the years, these books have been accepted and are used by Pastors and Ministers and we are not suggesting that there is any ulterior motive by these good men, but the information they are giving to their congregate is coming from a source that is not in total alignment with the original Words of God…
Many, if not most, of the members of the church group have absolute trust in their teachers and would never question anything that their leaders say.There is some notion that these good men have access to information that the normal individual cannot understand. The concept that our relationship with God is exactly the same for everyone seems to be lost somewhere and we accept the words of these teachers as being accurate and truthful. No one, and this needs to be understood by all, that no one is closer to God than anyone else !!!!
If during a service, a teacher says anything with which any member does not agree, then that member should stand up and tell the teacher of their concern. The teacher should then explain the doctrine or lesson because it is his responsibility. If this would happen more often, we would find that many of the misconceptions and misunderstandings would be corrected. The result would be that more and more of the incredible number of different denominations would begin to unify and the true Word of God will be taught to all. We would then become strong in our understanding and begin to reverse the evil direction of this world. There is only one God and only one Bible !!!!
