"Your Bible"

January 19th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Christian Book Distributors sent me some spam which illustrates modern gnosticism:






















Actually, it’s not “your Bible”. It’s God’s Word. The last four verses of the Bible are relevant:

22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

22:21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

    Thanks for the comment on Revelation. I hadn’t thought of that. But the Holy Spirit did know this would be the lsat book. Actually, I wonder if even John realized that. The end of a compilation is a natural place to put it!

    Although I agree with your statement, the verse you quote actually only applies to the Book of Revelation as John would have no idea that it was to be the last book in the compilation of the bible as we know it.
    The advertisement is classic niche marketing and unfortunately has been adopted by the entire spectrum of Christianity. There is even a teen girl magazine version of the bible. I think this dilutes and even diminishes the true message of God’s word.
