Most religions promulgate policies defining the limits of the sacred texts and controlling or forbidding changes and additions. Some religions view their sacred texts as the "Word of God," often contending that the texts are inspired by God and as such are not open to alteration." Wikipedia
A new revelation in written form pops up every few years and claims "This is the truth" "So says their prophet".
Some of the writings that are familiar to most are; Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons, Christian Science, Scientology, Muslim and Christianity. There are hundreds of others with one common thread which is a "Book and a Prophet" of some sort.
Knowing this challenges me to reevaluate my dedication to the Bible, "The Word Of GOD" and my total loyalty to it. This requires me to believe it to be GOD'S total revelation to man. Within it's pages are found the Creator, Sin, Salvation, the future of all mankind and how one should live in the present.
There is nothing excluded from the beginning to the eternal state; from the old creation to the new heavens and the earth.
While other books may talk about a God this book “The Bible” is GOD'S revelation about Himself.
1Timothy.2:5 For there is only one God (Jehovah) and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity--the man Christ Jesus.
Get the dust off the Bible!
