The earth is flat, Masons are the most dangerous people in the world, the world is ran by the illuminati and all Mules speak English. This world is full of nuts from those who seem to live their life based on conspiracy theories to those who bow down to statues as if the statues can talk and have a soul. What things will people believe? Anything!
There are things that seem impossible yet did happen. As an example:
28 And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?
29 And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee.
30 And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay. Numbers chapter 22
Bible believers believe this account of the ass speaking to be true. Yet for some it does not stop there. I guess all Mules can talk, says one. Yes, of course and they all speak English says another after all God is not a respecter of persons. Someone chimes in, God deals with sinners through Mules.
Far fetched? Perhaps, but the way some folk add their own thoughts to scripture and thereby adding to Gods word it is a wonder there is not a cult that worships mules.
Take the Apostle Peter. When Jesus said, “though art Peter and upon this rock I will build my church,” it confused some and consequently it was decided that the root meaning of the name Peter had to do with strength as stone or rock and that Jesus was going to build His church on Peter.
It matters not that when the word “Rock” is traced through the Bible that the rock God talks about is Himself and in the New Testament the Rock is none other that Jesus the Christ:
1 ¶ Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 1 Corinthians chapter 10
This is how versions of the Bible is so widely accepted. To those folk they hold that it is not the words of God that is important but His thoughts. They then feel free to change words to meet their interpretation of the Bible and claim the Holy Spirit told them they are right. Instead Gods word of the Bible being the final authority, they themselves are the final authority.
Many Baptists will tell you that since the John in the Bible who wore camels hair and Baptized Jesus was called “John the Baptist” that the Baptist denomination is the true church and it can be traced back to John the Baptist. Makes no matter that there are no denominations given favor in the Bible.
Add to, take away and change Gods word at will. Of course they have great arguments as they are smarter than God. They will back up their teachings by using language experts and they are called linguistic doctors. Never mind that they do not all sing off the same page and have different opinions among themselves.
Never will I forget the lesson I learned just 4 or 5 years ago. With so many references in the Bible that clearly points to the Deity of Christ I had often wondered how the Mormons could be so mistaken in their beliefs and relegate Jesus to simply being a man rather than the only begotten son of God. Two Mormons came to my door so I quickly asked them to hold on for a minute while I got my Bible. How could they possibly refute John 1:1 and John 1:14 I wondered? Low and behold their answer every time I traced the Deity of Jesus through the Bible, they would answer, “those words are not in the original manuscripts.” Never mind that the original manuscripts no longer exist and no one can say such a thing with a breath of honesty. No one living today has EVER seen an original manuscript. Yes, it is true that we have copies of copies and some agree closely with each other but no one can argue that there are not differences. Differences mean confusion and God is not the author of confusion.
Who is the author of confusion? Yes, you guessed it, none other than Satan. Get them confused, get them to debate what God says and Satan wins.
When the Bible says that Gods words are pure words and should not be tampered with you can put it in the bank:
6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. Psalm 12:6-7
The Bible is the word of God and the Bible I hold in my hand, the King James Bible is the word of God. Each word carefully chosen by God with no mistakes, no errors no confusion.
Mules can not talk. Mules can not speak English and different languages. Yes, one tome God caused a Mule to talk but if you read the account carefully in Numbers chapter 22 you will see that it was actually God speaking through the Mule. More later as I recall…….
