Revelation 22:18-19 18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. 19 And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll. (NIV)

Isaiah 40:8 The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever (NIV)

There are a few protestant denominations trying to change the word of God.  When they find that difficult they try to change the definition of the word they don’t like.  It appears they aren’t concerned with following the commands of God.  The want to appeal to the present day culture.  I’m so glad the apostles were more concerned with obeying and walking with our Lord than fitting in with their present-day culture.  God knows what is best for us to live an abundant life.  He doesn’t command things to ruin our fun and pleasure.  He is protecting us for troubles we can’t see on down the road.  I hope, if you’re in one of the denominations trying to change God’s commands or the definition of words used for centuries you will speak up and be counted.  Jesus had no problem correcting the religious leaders of His day and we should do the same.  No matter what some try to do, God’s word will endure forever.
