OBEDIENCE TO GOD !!! AN INTERESTING CONCEPT, MAYBE WE SHOULD TRY IT...
We know for a fact that God does not want a single word of His Bible to be altered, removed or added. We know this because He tells us of the consequences of such an act in the last few paragraphs of the last book of the Bible. We also know that great importance is placed upon the last words spoken or written because they are the first words that we remember and so only the most important aspects of any discussion are reserved for the ending. This gives us some idea of how important it was to Him that His wishes be honored… Yet, hundreds of revisions have been written altering the words of the Bible in spite of the incredible results of such actions. It would be difficult to believe that God would be pleased by these alterations and would not accept them as being authentic representations of His words.
Now, since the Authorized KJV was the first translation into English, all of these other revised editions are altered from that original Bible. We acknowledge the fact that there were two other attempts made to translate into English the scriptures, but neither of those attempts were successful and so we must assume that the KJV is the inspired version and only true representation of the words of God. Further, if we examine many of the changes that were made to the original translation, we can see that they were done for obvious reasons at the time in order to satisfy certain conveniences of the people making the changes.
So, the unfortunate part for those who use altered Bibles is that they do not get the proper lessons and doctrine as God had intended. It is clear that Satan was very influential concerning these changes, but that is always true when it creates confusion concerning the wishes of God. Unfortunately, Satan may have been very successful but we do not know whether those that use an altered Bible are in jeopardy. We will find that out on the Day of Judgment…
We also know that God has sent His prophets to warn the people of many things. In most cases, the people did not listen to the prophet and as we read the Bible, we see the results of the disregard of these warnings. Now, we are not claiming prophecy, but we are claiming the use of logically consideration and rational thought to the words of God. Whether He will accept those that use an altered Bible, we do not know. But, it certainly is a risk that need not be taken because the results could be devastating… We know what will happen to those who made the changes, but we can only wonder how He will deal with those who accept the changes. There is one God and He gave us His words; it just seems unlikely that He will be pleased by the disobedience to those words. It also does not seem likely that God intended to have His Church splintered into so many different denominations.
We each have a decision to make and that decision should be based upon a clear possibility, and that is that God will not accept anything except His words. On the Day of Judgment, we cannot say that we did not know because we have been warned many times concerning altered Bibles.
There are also other important benefits to all people using the original translation other than receiving the great lessons and the never ending levels of understanding, it would be called UNIFICATION !!! And, in addition to this incredibly powerful aspect of Christian life, we would accomplish something that mankind has had great difficulty with and that is obedience and honor to God and His wishes for us all….
