HOLY SPIRIT GUIDANCE THROUGH THE WRITINGS OF MEN

I’d like to consider the long step from when the written will of God was given to men in whatever form that was (tables of stone, oral, etc.), through the earthly ministry of Jesus, to this good day of endless Bible translations by eminent scholars of every stripe.

Christians believe that God created everything that exists (the Holy Spirit that hovered over the dark waters) And the world still stands as it was created by God. Eons have passed, generation after generation, man subject to God Who has always been and ever shall be in control of the whole of everything. Nothing has escaped His attention: even the little brown sparrow and the hairs of all our heads are numbered. I don’t know about you, but as for me, I bow in simple adoration and acceptance of things as they are and have been since creation.

I recognize that I am oversimplifying in the judgment of heavy-weight scholars, but I beg your indulgence for a moment. I must have counted at least thirty or forty (and many still being written) translations of the Scriptures, some helpful by explaining but not losing the meaning, and others seemingly deliberately changing the meaning of the passage to fit their belief system. There are very divergent opinions expressed and pronounced valid by their authors—even though they obviously contradict each other. When I finished my perusal, I sat very still for a moment or two, reflecting on the situation. And the only safe answer seemed to me to be that God is in control, that the Holy Spirit is leading us, and that Jesus gave His life to pay for our sins. No matter the eloquence of men, their seemingly valid arguments, etc., if they contradict the immutable will of our Father, we will be guided by the Spirit into safe waters. If error shows up among valid Scriptures in these writings, we will be steered into safe waters. The devil himself cannot confuse us if we have lent our allegiance to the Father and Son, and the Holy Spirit is leading us.. I may be walking here where angels fear to tread, but for some reason, it seemed a pitfall against which Christians ought to be warned. If we faithfully hold Christ in our hearts, we will not lose our way. For He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. May God bless us as we make our way through this world, avoiding the traps and snares that the devil delights to put in our path.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
