The devil is crafty and uses those things which are
truth to deceive believers. Believers have been deceived into believing that
the bible is the Word of God, whereas Jesus Himself, is the Word of God. Deductive
reasoning further concludes that because the bible is the word of God the writings of the
apostles are equal to the words of Jesus. Thus Jesus has been reduced to the
level of His disciples.
People do not believe in Jesus Christ and His words,
they believe in the bible. However, they do not believe the bible because the
bible testifies of Jesus that He is the Word of God. Jesus Christ is the
highest authority. He is the Lord above all lords and King above all kings and
Bible translations have minimized Jesus Christ. Whereas
His name and reference to Jesus was always in capital letters in earlier prints,
the modern prints have changed all reference to Jesus to lower case. “He” and “Him”
“he”’ and “him”, a display of utter disrespect.
Many churches have their own translations of the bible
with commentary to suit their doctrines. Preachers preach the words of Paul and
use selected scriptures in preference to the words of Jesus, by which we shall
Many bible translations have been twisted to suit the
doctrines of men. Yet they call it the Word of God. The bible testifies of
Jesus that He is the Word of God (John 1:1), there is no other.
Salvation is not in the bible or any of the scriptures.
Jesus warned the scribes and Pharisees: “You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you
have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me; and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you
may have life.” John 5:39,40. People know the bible but they do
not know the Jesus of the bible, the real Word of God.
The dismal state of Christians and churches show how effective
the deception is. People believe in the bible but do not fear God. They live in
sin and ungodliness. Churches are liberal organizations that accept all the
things that God hates.
How shall we know the truth then? Jesus promised the
Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, who would guide us into the full truth. He
has given the Holy spirit to guide every one who invites Jesus into their
hearts. Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit will guide us into the full truth
and remind us of the words that Jesus commanded. “He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His
own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to
you what is to come.” John 16:13. “He will teach you all things,
and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.” John 14:26.
Is the bible
not true? We believe it to be true. It is the holy scriptures that testify of
Jesus but it is not the Word of God. Jesus Christ is the Word of God. Nothing
can take his place, not even in part. Jesus alone is Lord. Jesus is alive and He reigns, guides His
sheep, they hear his voice and they listen to Him. John 10:27. Sadly,
there are many bible believers but very few sheep.
Thank you so much for this post. The truth cannot be caged. For Truth is a person, not a principle. And His name is Jesus. Thank God for faithful watchmen.
