    Donna, There are quite few reasons why the newer Bible translations have left out many scriptures in both O.T. and N.T. 1 Some theologians think that if they change the King James Version of the the Bible to modern day English more people read the Bible. 2 Some scholars also believe that the Greek and Hebrew translation have no president today, because the average believer does not care. 3 But they also forget what about Revelation 22:19 This is only my opinion.
  • Correcting Translation Error
    True Mike as you shared not all changes in Scripture are to deceive but those that are as you warned Rev22 will be their Destiny their Choice not Gods its not His Will anyone Perishes, Hopefully they will repent and put right the wrong they have done. There is also Translation error even in the KJV so I would value your thoughts on these two verses because they Contridict... Lk11:4 and James 1:13-14.
  • Donna K Miller
    question as to why Mathew 23:14 is left out of certain bible readings
  • Gods Truth Never Changes
    Hi Donna, Cult Bibles delete Scriptures and add words or change them. When reading Translations First Check the Scriptures below in the KJV to see if they match or if the Scriptures have been Deleted, Changed or added to if so reject them their not GodsTruth. There are more but these Ones will Confirm error for you... Matthew23:14 -John 1:1- Romans 8:1-1John 5:7 - If you want more check the Internet.

  • Stuart T Lyons
    I believe that Jesus is telling christians that we should live our life,as to where our lives must match our words,and had the pharisees asked god to forgive them,of their hypocrisy,and persecution of christians, i believe that jesus would have forgiven them.

    Rapture is not biblical, look up a woman name Mary McDonald, if you would read 1Thess.4: 13 14 verse ask GOD to open up your understanding, hope I was a help to someone

    Verse 38 - behold your house is left to you desolate.... Key word, desolate not destroyed pointing to the Prophet Daniel 8:13, the final desolation when the leaders accept a false Messiah, the ultimate betrayal. Luke 21:20 gives the briefest outlook of the landscape just before the abomination of desolation which is the angel of the bottomless pit dwelling inside the peacemaker, Satan's tool.
  • Servant of the most high God
    Norm well done thou faithful servant you keep obeying The Lord Jesus Christ and kno 1 in a 1000 saved truly seek the will of God over there own in there life as Elijah wasent alone then you are not alone now brother. Jesus Christ the same yesterday today and tommorrow The Alpha And The Omega his word will not return void. Praise and Glory and Worship and All Thanks be unto The Lamb Of God Amen.
  • Dee
    In Matthew 23rd chapter, Jesus begins by issuing a warning to the crowd, or to the common people, regarding the pharisees and the other religious leaders. This was clearly an indication of Jesus's final rejection of the religious leadership's influence and security on the people,[ref. Mark 12:38 also Luke 20:45-47]. Moses's seat indicates most high authority. Be watchful of falsities and wolves.

    following my first comment concerning changing the word they to it's true original word HE meaning Moses I will remind you Jesus had not been crucified as the Pascal lamb. The curtain had not been rent twain. The separation still existed until HIS final Breath. Upon the death of Jesus HE took away the curse of sin, death. HE did not end the law. He ended it's ultimate curse Death.
    The death of Jesus Christ was the end of the law old era . Christ ended the law, we are no more under the law because Christ fulfilled and abolished the law.
  • Wmcraig
    The original texts Not Strongs, Youngs or other similar books The original textus Receptus says . 3 All therefore whatsoever HE meaning Moses bid you observe, that observe and do but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. JESUS HIMSELF instructed them to keep Mosaic laws. The word "they" is a corruption of the truth. Read it and see which way if it makes linguistic since.

    NOWHERE: reminds me of a story I heard long ago about a little girl who was watching her Mother post in a forum something like this one. Her Mother posted: God is NOWHERE. The little girl starting crying. Her Mother asked her why she was crying and she said because you typed God is NOW HERE.

    Verses 1-3~Jesus told his disciples to listen to the things the Pharisees told them, but not according to their deeds. We may get instruction and we may not want to listen because they aren’t doing what they tell us to do but if the instruction is in line with what Jehovah God wants we need to listen.
  • A disciple
    When a man desires the office of an overseer, and seeks to be a good and faithful teacher of God's word; he desires a good thing; and with his commitment the Holy Spirit will work to convict and to testify the grace of God in Jesus Christ. But too often happens if one falls from his first love, or fails the grace of God and sins, that man hides his sins and is unwilling to surrender his position.

    Verse 13~It is important that our teachings are in line with God's Word because it means not only our lives, but the lives of others as well.
  • BSP
    Verse 10: We must not follow men, but we have one Leader and Master and that is Christ.
  • A disciple
    "..but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not...But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in." In the Sermon on the Mount, all of our character and conduct both toward God and men is supposed to be a reflection of our Father, that men may see!
  • A disciple
    BSP; That is such a profound statement! Hypocrisy is "stage-playing," giving an outward appearance intended to conceal one's true motives, nature, or actions. That then is become a false and spurious "religion" based on deceit and fraud, driven by pride, envy and selfishness. Our religion is as David describes in the 5th Psalm; of setting in order before Him, and allowing no place for the devil.
  • BSP
    Verses 25 and 26- the Pharisees were only focused on their outward appearance. We want to make sure that we are clean inside and out.
  • Joseph Mosley
    When Jesus said for us" call no man father save your father witch is in heaven. He was talking about religious father like Catholics call there priests father. He also said that we should not refer to religious leaders as rabbi because it means teacher and we only have one teacher and that is God.
  • Ren
    @Pearl when I was young we called ours dad not father. That was not allowed at our house. We were told you have only one Father and he is the one above.
  • A disciple
    Pearl; Honoring our father and mother is one of the Ten Commandments. Jesus condemned the hypocrites for teaching that by one's keep of religious observance he would be exempt from honoring his parents. I believe that Jesus is here referring to Titles, as if any man could be our Supreme Leader, or Master over the other's life and faith; for only our Father in heaven and Christ have those roles.
  • Pearl Nicholas
    Call no man father yet we all our parents mother and father. Is this wrong? Also in the Catholic church, a priest is called father.
  • A disciple
    From the day that the Lord Jesus came into this world, the devil's seed was after Him to destroy Him; and throughout His Ministry He was pursued by hateful and hostile hypocrites, who were deaf as an adder, and would never humble themselves to receive His good and wholesome teaching. In the last few days Jesus has come right to Jerusalem to speak to their face, and it cost Him His life. We follow!

    Rev. Kerns; I like what you said; Psalms 68:11; "When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Lord shall raise up a standard against him." Isaiah 69:19
  • Reverend Robert L. Kerns
    There is only One Father and He is the Heavenly Father and the Creator of Heaven and earth and the fullness thereof. The Bible tells us in the book of Timothy to " Study to shew ourselves approved of God. Rightfully dividing the Word of Truth ". Reminder, The Word of God is to be discussed not argued over. It doesn't matter how we may think or feel, God's Word will always stand.
