Bible Question
September 16, 2004 | Gypsy286

Posted on 09/16/2005 5:25:50 PM PDT by GYPSY286

I'll be the first to admit that I have not read the Bible from start to finish but I do remember reading a scripture that - I'm paraphrasing here - that whoever takes away from what is written here will be turned away from God and whoever adds to what is written will be turned away from God. Can someone more knowledgeable tell me where I can find it? Any help would be deeply appreciated!

End of Revelations for starters. In bibles with words of Jesus in Red it will be in red at the end. The only time he is quoted after the gospels/resurrection.

The very end of it, IIRC. I believe that it is an admonishment to not adulterate its content.

I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God shall add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book. (Rev 22:18,19)

You're forgetting Acts, when Jesus converts Paul.

Not true. Jesus was quoted when He spoke to Saul, AKA Paul, on the Road to Damascus.

Otherwise, on the money. What would you consider to be adding to-subtracting from the Bible?

"The only time he is quoted after the gospels/resurrection."

Uh, wrong. As I recall Paul quotes Jesus as he describes the proper way to celebrate the Eucharist in I Corinthians 11.

Revelation 22:18


18I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. 19And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

It is found both in Dueteronomy (Deut 4:2) and in Revelations (Rev 22:17-18) and was meant in both cases for those specific books as when written, the BIble had not been compiled into a complete work as yet.

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this book.
REVELATION 22:18-19

My red letter edition has verses 18 and 19 in black.

Why read the bible when you can listen to it read by a Shakespearean actor?

Hah, look in the very back of the book.

Revelation 22:18-19.

"I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book:If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book."

Thank you so much. Would the Book of Mormon be considered as "adding" to the Words of the Bible?

...that whoever takes away from what is written here will be turned away from God and whoever adds to what is written will be turned away from God.

Revelation 22:18, 19.

18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Look at the Revelation again. Christ is speaking directly to the Apostle John as he gave him the Revelation.

Deu 12:32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

Deu 4:2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish [ought] from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

If you take that scriptuire literally, then turn back to Duet 4:2 and throw out everything after that. The books were written seperately and compiled into the entore Bible much later.

In addition, the Book of John is not chronologically last in the Bible, it was wrtten before several other books.

Nevertheless, the Holy Bible is God's word and is scrripture.

I will admit to you up front that I am LDS...I joined the church after being raised a Southern Baptist, for which upobringing I will be eternally grateful.

Jesus Christ remains my personal Savior and it is to Him alone that I look for salvation. My church, the LDS faith, teaches that. We do have differences in theology, but realtively speaking, next to the saving atonement of Jesus Christ ad Him crucified, they are minor.

I do not mean to start a flame war or a contentious arguement...I will not participate in any thing like that...just letting you know my understanding and my witness.
