What is the "Scripture" which we preach?
Jesus said: "Heaven and earth shall pass away but My words will by no means pass away." Matthew 24:35.
God the Father said: "My Covenant I will not break nor alter the Word that is gone out of my lips." Psalms 89:34.Jesus said to the Father:"ForI have given to them (the disciples) the words which You have given Me, and they have received them..." John 17:8.Peter said: "But the word of the Lord endures forever. Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you." 1 Peter 1:25.
Peter said again: "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit." II Peter 1:21.
Paul said: "Be diligent...rightly dividing the word of truth." II Timothy 2:15.
Paul said again: "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable." II Timothy 3:16.
Paul said once more: "But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed." Galatians 1:8.
David said: "Forever, O Lord, Your Word is settled in Heaven." Psalm 119:89.
Moses said: "This is the blood of the Covenant which God has commanded you." Hebrews 9:20.
"For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water, scarlet work, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people." 9:19.
John the Apostle said: "For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book." Revelation 22:18,19
QUESTION TO THE MODERN CHURCH:Dare we edit what "holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit?"
On Whose Authority?
