We're called to share the Word of God with the World.

 

"Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature."

 

Mark chapter 16, verse 15.

 

But we are warned, and I'd use Revelation 22:18-19 for it, but that would be taking things out of context (and thus defeat the purpose of my message.) Yet I believe it rings true for those who add to or remove from God's Word (but it's not about that which I think.)

 

"Do not add to His words, lest He rebuke you and you be found a liar."

 

Proverbs chapter 30, verse 6.

 

And we all know that liars will not enter the Kingdom of God, as is said in 1 Corinthians 6. Certainly you don't want God Himself to say that you lie, so be sure to keep in check what you say-- so that it is accurately reflective of the Bible.

 

You may think it would benefit you (selfish) or others (good intentions, which usually go wrong when not based on God-filled pure and moral right,) to simply twist words, take them out of context, or even add to because you think this or that.... but it's not a good idea.

 

Do you preach? And if you do, are you guilty of what could be called slander and what could be called libel? Think about it. It really is, in the end, the same thing.

 

Preach the truth, not your own ideas, or your own self will never see the Kingdom you say you stand for. It's not about winning. It's about truth for living.


Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Joshua chapter 1, verse 9.
