You're Only as Close to the Lord as You are to Truth

2nd Timothy 4:2-4, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

       The Greek word for “fables” is muthos and means, “a tale, myth, fiction.” Most of the churches today have been turned away from THE TRUTH of God's Word, and have instead adopted fairy tales, fiction.

All across America, corrupted pastors are teaching fiction in the churches. You need look no further than the modern Alexandrian Bible translations to find lots of “fiction.” I don't care how close you may “think” you are to God, you cannot be any closer to God than your willingness to obey the truth. Wayward pastors, who are using corrupt Bible revisions, and who refuse to heed warnings when presented the truth from faithful believers, cannot be right with God. You'll never truly be close to God without acknowledging and promoting THE TRUTH!!!

Here are some examples of “FICTION” taught in the modern Bible revisions...

Fiction #1 - Mary Held Onto Jesus

For example: According to John 20:17 in the King James Bible, Mary Magdalene didn't touch Him. Jesus said in John 20:17b, “Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father.” But the modern revisions (such as the NIV, ASV, ERV, VOICE and CEV, to name a few of hundreds), says that Mary touched Jesus. The same passage in the corrupted Easy-To-Read Version (ERV) reads, “You don’t need to hold onto me! I have not yet gone back up to the Father.” There is a vast difference between emphatically telling someone not to touch you, verses casually telling someone they don't need to keep holding onto you.

The King James Bible is clear that Mary never touched Jesus, because He had not yet ascended to the Father. This is because the blood had to be sprinkled onto the heavenly Mercy Seat (Hebrews 9:12, 24; 12:24). Someone reading the fictitious ERV or NIV would never get the impression that Jesus couldn't be touched. In fact, what the Alexandrian revisions say are retarded if you think about it. Why would Mary “need” to hold onto Jesus? That makes no sense at all. Jesus allegedly told her that she didn't need to hold onto Him, because He needed to go to the Father. What kind of silly situation is this? The modern Bible revisions, as usual, are confusing and lame. Mary NEVER touched Jesus. The Lord ascended into Heaven, and sprinkled His precious blood onto the Mercy Seat in the Father's presence on our behalf, and only then was Christ's work of redemption finished. The blood had to be applied!

So the bogus idea that Mary clung to Jesus, but then Jesus told her to let Him go, so He could leave, is fiction. Mary was told not to touch Him, and she didn't. The Alexandrian Bible translations are full of fairy tales, myths and fiction.

Fiction #2 - You Get Saved by Changing Your Heart and Life

Fiction #3 - You Must Say “Lord is Lord” to Be Saved

Fiction #4 - You Must Turn Away from Sinful Behavior to Be Saved

Fiction #5 - People Kneeled Down to Jesus Instead of Worshipping Him

Fiction #6 - The Ethiopian Eunuch Was Saved by Water Baptism in Acts 8:36-38

Fiction #7 - Jesus is No Longer the Only Begotten Son of God

Are you a fiction pastor? I'm not a fiction reader myself. I could give you hundreds more tales of fiction and myths from the modern Alexandrian Bible revisions, which were given to the world by occultists. It is not mere coincidence that Satan has changed (perverted) all key passages concerning Jesus Christ—removing the Godhead, attacking Christ's deity, removing every mention of someone “worshipping” Jesus, removing the virgin birth in Isaiah 7:14 (ERV), removing Christ's claims of being “the Almighty” in Revelation 1:8, et cetera. The ERV changers it to “the All-Powerful.” But, being all-powerful is not the same as being “the Almighty!”

Subtle word changes can result in a drastic change in doctrinal meaning, which violates the Word of God, changing the truth into a lie (Romans 1:25). Romans 1:25a, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator.” Verse 24 teaches that it is wicked Christ-rejecters who tamper with the Bible, changing it into a lie. Our churches are filtrated with fiction these days. The modern Bible versions teach myths, not Biblical theology. They're watered down, weak, lame and lacking authority. The King James Bible speaks boldly with God's authority!!!

There is a big independent Baptist church down the street from me, who have a big sign at the entrance of the church which reads, “Helping People Develop A heart For God.” Unfortunately, that very same church doesn't have a heart for THE TRUTH. Folks, you cannot develop a heart for God without also developing a heart for THE TRUTH. I often capitalize those two words, “THE TRUTH,” to emphasize the importance of truth. Listen to what the Lord Himself told the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4:22-24, “Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” God cannot be worshipped in error, tradition, false doctrine, blasphemy, rituals or manmade commandments; but rather, only in spirit and in TRUTH!!!!!!!

People all around the world have a heart for God, so they have been deceived to think; but their hearts are far away from the truth of God, making them far from God. Matthew 15:7, “Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” These modern Bible versions, literally hundreds of English translations today, in many cases are not even based upon ANY ancient text. The reason why is quite obvious, because to meet the legal requirements of the the U.S. Copyright office, translators (and thus publishers) MUST make drastic changes to all existing texts to make it unique. They ran out of things to say A LONG TIME AGO; therefore, as more and more new Bible versions are published, the translators have to get increasingly colorful and deviate from the original manuscripts.

Please listen to part 4B below, by Dr. Max D. Younce, which is so helpful and informative if you have never heard these truths. The average churchgoer has never heard these things (and likely never will), about how deadly and corrupt the modern Bible versions really are. ...

Well reader, I ask you, are you God's friend? You cannot be close to the Lord while being corrupted from the modern Alexandrian revisions. Living the Christian life means nothing, unless you are grounded in sound doctrine and knowledgeable of the Scriptures. END
