I sent not these prophets, yet they ran: I didn't speak to them, yet they prophesied. They said that I said, when I never spoke to them. Jeremiah 23:21
Keeping the above in mind, let's consider some of what has been recorded in the Canon that God would not agree with.
1). For the love of money is the root of all evil... 1 Tim 6:10 Original King James version
Answ. This statement is categorically untrue, for the root of all evil was here long before money or any other form of currency ever existed! Clearly, the love of money was and is not the root of all evil. What about the pride of life, the lust of the eyes and the flesh...?
2). The entire book of Job.
Answ. Most of all of what was attributed to God, words that God reportedly said in the polemic book of Job, a book which was intentionally placed in the wisdom or poetic section of the Bible did not happen and the words were never spoken as they have been recorded in poetic Job.
Poetic license was in effect by the author of Job. We have the poetic version of the story of Job recorded in the Canon. Many of the additions were put there to add color to the actual story of Job. Certainly, there was neither a stenographer nor a tape recorder present at the time to record the breathtaking dialogues that were recorded in the poetic book of Job.
3) There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. Genesis 6:4 KJV
Answ. This text was borrowed from another oral tradition. Bible conservatives simply came up with an explanation in order to make the story appear to be true. So who were these giants?
4). A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things Ecclesiastes 10:19 KJV
Answ. Perhaps, in the wisest man who ever lived's world, but we all know that money does not answer everything, even though I am sure that a lot of American capitalists today would agree with his conclusion.
Clearly God did not inspire Solomon to speak or write something that is so inane, wretched and patently untrue.
I will keep adding to this list, for the Canon is not the inerrant or unadulterated word of God that we have been taught to believe that it was and is today! The canon was written by men, in deference to those ministers today who have stated publicly the following: the bible is under attack. The bible is not under attack, people simply want the truth, and that is what they should want themselves.
Jesus, was the most vocal critic of much of what was later written and has since been recorded in the Canon. Jesus said, you have heard by them of old times ..., but I say unto you...! What he was saying was that these sayings, many of them recorded in the Canon and taken from Hebrew texts did not originate with God.
The Apostle Paul even admitted that some of what he stated in his epistles to the circum-Mediterranean churches, was written by permission. In other words some of what he wrote clearly did not come from God, instead it was his opinion or ideas that were by the Apostles. On occasion they gave permission for him to say and to what he did (see Acts 15:12-23 for example), which was subsequently put into writing. .
Now keep in mind that this is the same man who went about arresting and having tortured and killed those individuals who did not share his religious opinions.
Much of what is recorded in the Mosaic Law, and other parts of the Pentateuch, was also borrowed from other sources. And Jesus even made it clear that Moses' permissive ideas about divorce did not come from God.
Before I go any further, I must talk about motive because most individuals will wonder what Reverend Solomon is trying to do. If you read some of my previous writings, you know that it is my hope to help liberate God's people from error prone texts and the tyranny of religious persecution, so that they can be free to seek after what God actually did express as ITS will!
Clearly, we need to hear from God in the here and now. Remember, Jesus said that the truth makes one free. God's people need to be freed from error prone texts, and those individuals who will make them slaves to error prone texts. God's true word does not entangle minds, neither does it contradict. In John 3:15, it is written that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever would believe on him would not perish but have everlasting life.
Most Christians believe Constantine's Canon instead of Jesus Christ, and the dangerous admixture of partial truth with fabrications and malapropisms can be especially dangerous.
Next, would God agree with the Apostle's characterization of the rapture? In Paul's letters to the Thessalonians as recorded in 1 Thessalonians 4:16 and 17 KJV. Paul Wrote:
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
We which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Paul was clearly under the impression that he would still be living when the rapture took place, and the dead were raised. From all appearances, the Apostle has been dead for about 2000 years now. Shouldn't we discuss this matter? Was the Apostle Paul wrong? And by the way, all of us have believed that God has said something to us at one time or another which turned out not to have been God after all!
