Psalms 12:6 The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 12:7 Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
Long story made short: After the 1st century A.D., the New Testament of the scriptures were completed and shared with the seven churches. All of these N.T. scriptures were preserved in their entirety at Antioch, and later were named the Received Text. This, and the Hebrew Texts of the Old Testament were in fact, the Word of God. They were untainted, and unaltered, and in fact, the inerrant Scriptures, in the original Hebrew and the original Greek and what the Apostle Paul called “that which is perfect”. (1 Corinthians 13:10) This was the “perfect”, completed Holy Bible intended by God to give us a Lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our life.
Satan wanted no part in having Gods Word so available to God’s people. I believe he must have whispered into the ear of a man called Origen Adamantius, a scholar in Alexandria, Egypt and 3rd century theologian, to meddle and muck up the words that God intended us to have with lies and half truths. In fact, he created a counterfeit manuscript of his own which has caused more confusion and division in the churches than any other mess we’ve ever had in all of church history.
From Origen’s manuscripts we have the new versions of the Bible like the NIV, HCSB, NKJV, etc… If you have some questions about the mess these Bibles are causing, here is the place to ask them.
