Unique evil. 8
Distort Bible truth sinless?
Apostle Peter said: 2Peter 3:16
As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood,
which they that are ignorant and unstable distort 4761, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
*** Distort means torture language to a false sense.
Example A – Jesus taught: Matt.7:15-16
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves. Matt.7:15
By their fruits ye shall know them. … Matt.7:16
1. False prophets are in sheep’s clothing!
2. By their fruits you shall know them!
What are fruits of these false prophets?
Ignorant and unstable people connect to fruit of the Spirit! Gal.5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness,
self-control; against such there is no law.
3. Don’t forget this! 2Cor.11:14
And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.
4. There are lots of morally good preachers in denomination churches! These fruits are their sheep clothing!
5. Please wake up! Fruits of the false prophets are churches they set up with their preaching!
6. Forever remember: Fruits of true prophets preaching was churches of Christ! Ro.16:16
7. Same seed (words of the Lord) will produce same kinds of church of Christ! Luke 8:11
8. Sow different seed produce different churches will go to hell! Gal.1:8-9
Example B – Apostle Paul taught: 2Cor.3:5-6
Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God.
He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—
not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
1. Ignorant and unstable people say ‘letter’ is word printed on Bible page! Spirit is the Holy Spirit!
a. Thus after one read a printed verse, he or she has to pray for Holy Spirit come to give them the real meaning of the word!
b. As Ananias prayed for Saul: Then Ananias went to the house and entered it.
Placing his hands on Saul, he said: Brother Saul, the Lord-- Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—
has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit. Ac.9:17
c. Then they connect to -- For no prophecy ever came by the will of man: but men spoke from God, being moved by the Holy Spirit.
d. Thus each has their own interpretation of Bible words!
2. God made competent ministers know these is the truth in 2Cor.3:5-6
a. Read all the way down to 2Cor.3:9 then you may know letter is Moses’ ten commandments.
b. Spirit is New Testament teaching!
c. God is really merciful! There is only one thing, Moses ten commandments engraved on stone!
3. Since these people are ignorant and unstable, they will never find 1Jn.5:6!
God made it harder for them! In Chinese Bible it is 5:7, in English Bible it is 5:6!
The Spirit is the truth in the New Testament Bible!
4. 2Cor.3:6 is about being competent ministers in New Testament time do things according to New Testament teaching!
Why Moses ten commandment kills?
5. Naturally, God made competent ministers will connect to what Paul said in Romans 3:20!
Because by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified in his sight; for through the law the knowledge of sin.
Conclusion: The new and living way for salvation of the soul! Heb.10:19-20
*** Only God knows how to help the ignorant and unstable people to know this one! Heb.10:19-20
Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,
by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body.
In the New Testament time, souls are to be saved through the church of Christ!
May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with you always! Written September 5, 2021.
