Tuesday’s Time

Add thou not unto his words lest he reprove thee and thou be found a liar (Proverbs 30:6).

God is omnipotent, man is not; God is omniscient, man is not; God is omnipresent, man is not. God desired to provide a book for man, which man can read and understand; God desired to provide a book for man, which was current and relevant the day it was written and would be current and relevant every day as long as the earth stands; God desired to provide a book for man that would show man his origin, why he is here and where he is going; God desired to provide a book for man that would show man how to live in this life and how to live eternally. God not only desired to provide such a book, He did – the Bible.

If God is all-powerful, all-knowing, ever-present, why would a being who is not all-powerful, all-knowing or ever-present need to add his thoughts and words to the word of God? There will never be an occasion, there will never be an event, thee will never be a time, wherein man needs to correct the word of God.

Man does not have the authority of God to correct God’s word concerning life; man does not have the authority of God to correct God’s word concerning service unto God; man does not have the authority of God to correct God’s word concerning obedience unto God; man does not have the authority of God to correct the word of God concerning marriage; man does not have the authority of God to correct God’s word concerning the worship of God; man does not have the authority of God to correct the word of God concerning attitudes toward others; man does not have the authority of God to correct the word of God concerning government; man does not have the authority of God to correct the word of God concerning death; and man does not have the authority of God to correct the word of God concerning eternal judgement.

Man has the authority of God to read His word; man has the authority of God to obey His word; man has the authority of God to love His word; man has the authority of God to teach others His word and man has the authority of God to live eternally by His word.

What license do you take with the word of God?
