One Thing We Must Get Right!

One Thing We Must Get Right!

Before I even begin, I want to challenge your faith and your Common Sense!

If we call ourselves Christians, want to become a Christian, want to raise our children to be Christians, or be any part of “the kingdom of Christ”, there is one thing we must get right!

If we don’t get this one thing right, we are just a big joke!  Without this one thing, we are just a bunch of foolish people that talk about religion…  We don’t even believe ourselves!  And how does that impress the rest of the world?—Like a bunch of stupid morons that “say” and “do not”.

Of course Common Sense people don’t want to be in a class like that—so here it is!  We must develop a love, respect, and reverence for God’s word.  We must put the Bible above (far above) anything else on this Earth.  The scriptures are the only written word.  We have that came directly from the “Almighty”.

Take to heart these scriptures:

(2 Timothy 3:16-17) “16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:  17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”

(2 Peter 1:21) “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”

(Deuteronomy 6:6) ” And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:”

(Psalms 119:11) “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”

(Deuteronomy 4:2) “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.”

(Deuteronomy 12:32) “What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.”

(Proverbs 30:6) “Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.”

(Revelations 22:19) “And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

That is enough scripture to let us know that God thinks about His word.  So, don’t mess with it!  But, we are told to study it.

(2 Timothy 2:15) “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

(2 Peter 1:3) “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:”

(2 John:verse 9) “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.”

Question:  What “happens” to preachers, congregations, individuals that do not stay with the “Holy Word”?  The Bible answered that for us—“hath not God”.  Next time we will get down to specifics and personal.

Thanks for reading and God bless!
