When Titles Change

16 May

When Titles Change…

Bible publishers are especially careful to guard against typographical errors, but occasionally, errors have slipped through. The ‘Printers’ Bible,’ so named because the word ‘princes’ is rendered ‘printers.’ The result in Psalm 119, David says, ‘Printers have persecuted me without cause.’ Worse than this is the so-called ‘Wicked Bible.’

The word ‘not’ was accidentally omitted from the seventh commandment; the result, ‘Thou shalt commit adultery,’ instead of ‘Thou shalt not commit adultery.’ Even one small change of God’s Word can turn something holy into something wicked.

Your responsibility too is great. God has given you His word. Read it. Treasure it. Receive it. Believe it. Hold to it. Proclaim it. Do it. Don’t change it. Don’t mold it to match your life. Don’t soften it to match your ideas, your ways, your actions.

If you change it, even by one letter, you turn something holy into something wicked. Instead of changing the word to meet your life, change your life to match the Word, turning something wicked into something holy. Take the word as it is, let it change your life; anything else… and you end up with a ‘Wicked Bible.’

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

As you read the Word of God today, let it really shine and soak into your heart, into an area of your life you know has to be changed.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
