Rightly dividing the Word of Truth. Part 42
Rightly dividing the Word of truth.
This is part 42 in a series of 53 articles about RIGHTLY DIVIDING GOD’S WORD OF TRUTH. All scripture quoted will be from the King James Bible.
Part 42 continues with Mr. Justin Johnsons article about the KJB.
Others will argue at length attempting to prove the impossibility of God’s preservation through supposed mistakes and errors. Even though I don’t see the need for argument, according to Romans 3:3-4, the errors simply don’t exist: 3For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? 4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written,tThat thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
If they have a problem with God’s word, then they will have plenty of time to talk to him about it in heaven. That is, if they are able to trust his words enough to get there.
By the way shouldn’t we be preaching and teaching belief in God and his words and not doubt? What good is it to stand in doubt of the Bible you study when the very words of eternal life and peace with God are only beneficial, if they are first believed? There is a good reason that I believe every word in my King James Bible. The reason is that my faith in God depends upon it, “…faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God,” Romans 10:17
Most importantly, it is an offense to my Lord if I continue in unbelief. It is not a matter of probability that God’s words are preserved. Neither is it a matter of man’s capability. It is a matter of God’s responsibility, “And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform,” Romans 4:21
In part 41, I said some people don’t trust Paul’s writings, because they seem to contradict other book in the Bible. But, there are no contradictions in the Bible! What seem to be contradictions in the Bible, are what we call BIBLE CONTRASTS.
These articles are about rightly dividing God’s Word of truth. When we rightly divide the Bible, so called contractions, are really only contrasts between God’s earthly program, and God’s heavenly program.
Remember, God has made distinctions between the program given to Israel under the law, and the program of grace given to our Apostle Paul. When God called Paul to be the Apostle of the Gentiles in Acts 9:15 around two thousand years ago, He made a change in the way He was going to deal with mankind.
In previous articles, I stated that all scripture is profitable for our learning, but not every instruction is for our participation. It is necessary to discern the intended audience of God’s revelation to man. (To whom was God speaking?) There are many instructions in the Bible for past saints, or future Israel that do not address anyone in the church today. It would be wrong to claim these instructions as our own for today.
