Cut, Copy and Paste Christianity
I am sure by now you have heard of the new Bible translation released in 2012 and is now available for the gay community. It is the Queen James Version or QJV.
According to Charisma News, “It rewrites eight key verses that speak against homosexual practice. It’s called the Queen James Bible (I kid you not), and the editors state that, “We edited those eight verses in a way that makes homophobic interpretations impossible.”
Also according to CARM (Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry),” The Queen James Bible, also known as the Gay Bible, is a new assault on Biblical orthodoxy and sexual purity. In it, the 1769 King James Bible has been reproduced with only a very few select verses altered--the ones that relate to homosexuality.”
What a sad shame that people have had to stoop so low as to alter Scripture in order to fit their perverted agenda!
But, by the same token the same can be said of the many false doctrines that exist within the Christian community, and that is why I call this, Cut, Copy and Paste Christianity.
If you don’t like what the Bible says, cut the part that offends you, copy then paste to the parts you like thus making it justify your lifestyle. It is as Walter Scott stated when he said, ”Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.” And deceit is exactly what it is when we try to change Scripture.
Scripture tells us that, “the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 (ESV)
I imagine that is the part that is offensive, that the Word is so sharp it cuts to the very depths of our heart.
God loves the homosexual and I am sure He is grieved over their lifestyle as He is over any lifestyle that is contrary to His Word.
So, if your life and walk with God is not what it should be I humbly ask that you make it right today. Also, let Scripture say what it says and allow His Holy Spirit minister to you.
