    Not to mention every Scripture translation is virtually a paraphrase of the original languages. That’s why they are all slightly different.

    Adding to what Cee just said, now you are saying you are a "liar", you should seek out a
    spiritual counselor, seriously.

    Exactly, what he did is paraphrasing. Can you show me in the Bible where it says it is ok to paraphrase a verse and still call it scripture ? No Bible allows this and his words do not match any versions of the Bible. Therefore his words are not scripture.

    REV 22:18 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:

    REV 22:19 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.

    He added unto the book by slightly changing it, making what he said to be his words and not actual scripture.Yes, I am being purposely technical here to prove a point because others have chosen to go down the "technical" road here. But what I say is true. He did change the scripture, making it no longer scripture.

    The Letter kills, but the Spirit is life. Keeping the Spirit of the word is still Scripture. His paraphrase takes the whole of Scripture, not a word for word account. Like I said all interpretations are paraphrase of the original languages. Under your rules, none of us could say Scripture is Scripture unless we shared the exact Greek or Aramaic.

    Works ARE important. I will prove this with God's own word later. One issue at a time. First, I am waiting for dc to respond to the words he represented as scripture. I am not allowing for you guys to divert off of that fact, until it is settled. Good day gentlemen.

    who says they arent important

    we ought to encourage our brothers and sistets unto every good work


    as for the lie that they earn, keep or lose your salvation

    in turn making yourself your own savior

    31 But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.

    32 Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;

    33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.


    Romans 10
    10 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.

    2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.

    3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

One cannot add words/symbols, delete, nor change anything in any way for it to be scripture. You cannot show me one single version of the Bible that is printed "exactly" as shown above. Not one. There is no BIBLE written as "works/deeds", not one single version is presented exactly as that. Therefore, what you wrote is NOT any scripture. Rather it is a summation of scripture. For you to claim it IS "scripture" is to place yourself into judgment according to the verse below because it is NOT exact scripture.

    REV 22:18 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:

    REV 22:19 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.

    What you wrote WAS NOT scripture, but your own summation, precisely as I said before. So, there is the first mistake you made in claiming it was scripture. Now, are you going to admit that what you wrote is NOT any exact scripture ? OR are you going to deny that mistake ?
    The only corner I am in is the corner Jesus stands in....too bad you cannot accept the plain truth...

    Therefore, we CONCLUDE a man is JUSTIFIED by faith WITHOUT the deeds of the LAW......

    Wake up to the truth
