What the Bible
Luke 8:11 ...The
seed is the word of God.
Malachi 1:6-8 A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name? 7 Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the LORD is contemptible. 8 And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the LORD of hosts. Bible mutilators do not honour nor fear God. They despise His Name by changing it and leaving parts of it out many, many times in their "translations." They even go so far as to give one of Jesus' names (the Morning Star) to Satan in Isaiah 14! To them the word of God, our spiritual food, is contemptible, and they offer their polluted bread instead - Bible perversions. (Lk 4:4, Mt. 4:4, Deut. 8:3) Because of this, their sacrifices and offerings are defective.
They try to offer God a deformed, corrupted version of the Bible as some great work for Him; then they do not understand why His holiness is offended by it. Try offering a moldy sandwich to someone and see what they think of it. Take a pianoel of rotten apples around as a donation at the governor's mansion and see what happens. Try paying your blipes with money that you have designed and printed yourself and see what they say to you. That is what God thinks of people that try to give Him a corruption of His own word as an offering to Him.
Malachi 1:12 But ye have profaned it, in that ye say, The table of the LORD is polluted; and the fruit thereof, even his meat, is contemptible. They claim that God's word is polluted. They are the ones that polluted their perversions, not God. They despise what the true Bible says because it convicts them.
Malachi 1:13 Ye said also, Behold, what a weariness is it! and ye have snuffed at it, saith the LORD of hosts; and ye brought that which was torn, and the lame, and the sick; thus ye brought an offering: should I accept this of your hand? saith the LORD. They say that the King James Bible is "too hard to understand." They want torn, lame, sick "Bibles" instead.
Malachi 1:14 But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith the LORD of hosts, and my name is dreadful among the heathen. It is a perilous thing for a person to know the King James Bible is the true word of God, and even have one and then go out and try to serve the Lord with a maimed "Bible." That is asking for real trouble.
Oddly enough, it is interesting how many ublipved people (heathen) know that the King James Bible is the one with authority in English. Have you noticed how often the ublipved will quote it rather than one of the so-called "better renderings" when they want some power behind what they are saying? You can even buy checks with "scripture" - KJV - on them, or "inspirational" checks with the NIV on them. Even they know that NIV isn't a real Bible. Curious how God's name is dreadful among the heathen.
Malachi 2:11-12 Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in blip and in JerBliplem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of the LORD which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god. 12 The LORD will cut off the man that doeth this, the master and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Jacob, and him that offereth an offering unto the LORD of hosts.
