Do Not Add or Subtract

2024-01-06 11:59

The bible teaches that we should not change the words of God in the bible by adding to or subtracting from the words. We have to consider the words of God as absolute and should accept the words as it is written in the bible. Especially, when we talk about the commands of God, we have to be very careful not to add our opinions to them.

Revelation 22:18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. 19 And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.

God clearly teaches us that we should not add to or subtract from the words of God. Therefore, when we keep the commands of God, we should not change anything from those words.

Then let us think about the day of worship. When is the day of worship according to the words of God in the bible? In Genesis, we can see the creation work of God. God created everything from the first day to the sixth day. And on the seventh day God took rest and he set the seventh day as the Sabbath Day, the day to commemorate the creation work of God. And God commanded to keep the Sabbath Day holy.

Exodus 20:8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

In the New Testament, Jesus and his disciples also kept the Sabbath Day according to the laws of the new covenant by worshiping God in spirit and in truth.

Luke 4:16 He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read, 17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him.

And the Sabbath Day is Saturday in today’s calendar. Therefore, the day that we should go to church to worship God is Saturday, not Sunday. Even the Catholic Church which originated the Sunday worship states that the biblical day of worship is Saturday, not Sunday. And the Sunday worship does not have its origin in the bible, but in the doctrine of the Catholic Church. It means the Catholic Church added their own idea to the words of God. They added the Sunday worship and subtracted the Sabbath worship.

Third—A rule of faith, or a competent guide to heaven, must be able to instruct in all the truths necessary for salvation. Now the Scriptures alone do not contain all the truths which a Christian is bound to believe, nor do they explicitly enjoin all the duties which he is obliged to practice. Not to mention other examples, is not every Christian obliged to sanctify Sunday and to abstain on that day from unnecessary servile work? Is not the observance of this law among the most prominent of our sacred duties? But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify.

From “The Faith of Our Fathers” by James Gibbons

They clearly reveal that the Sunday worship is not biblical at all. The day of worship in the bible is Saturday. They added a Sunday worship to the words of God, and subtracted the Sabbath day from the words. They make many excuses to justify their lawless practices. What they are doing, however, is just lawlessness. They are adding plagues to themselves and taking away the tree of life from them. We have to be careful in following the teachings coming from man.

Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother restored all the laws of the new covenant. When we hear a teaching about the faith, we have to test the teaching through the words of God. If a teaching is not from the bible, then we should not follow the teaching. Those teachings come from man and they cannot give us salvation.

    Through the Old and New Testaments, God gave us warnings not to add to or subtract from God's Word. Because the word of God is the way, the truth, and the life. What if you could add one thing from the Word of God? What if you take away even one thing? Will I really be saved? doesn't exist. Therefore, we should never try to add or subtract with human thoughts, but should have the faith to obey every word God gives us.
    If you believe in God, the basic thing you need to know is knowing God and the commandments set by God. If you wish for heaven, I hope you will absolutely obey all of God's commands and become one of the protagonists who will enter eternal heaven without pain, suffering, and death. Thank you~~ GOD BLESS YOU

    No one in power on this earth, no matter how high their position, can add to or subtract from the word of God.
    This is because humans are beings who cannot guarantee the future.
    If you do not keep the Sabbath service written in the Bible, the Word of God, such as Passover, you have taken away the Word of God. If you add things that are not in the Bible, such as Sunday, Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc., if you keep things that are not in the Bible, you are adding the Word of God.
    The Bible says that if you add and believe things that are not in the Bible, you will add disaster. If you take away what is written in the Bible, you will not be able to participate in the tree of life, that is, you will not be able to go to heaven.

    He said that if you take away the Word of God, you will not enter heaven, and if you add anything to the Word of God, you will face disaster. Let us go to eternal heaven together by keeping the commandments that God has commanded us to keep, such as the Sabbath and Passover, which are only evidenced in the Bible.

    Some says any day is OK to worship God between Sunday and Saturday. But, God clearly said the seventh day, Saturday is Sabbath and he want to remember that day to people of God. We should not add something or subtract something from God words. If we keep Sabbath on Sunday, it means we add our thought on God's words that Sabbath is Saturday.
    Moreover, there is no evidence that Sabbath is Sunday in Bible and those who keep Sunday observance also recognize Sabbath is Saturday. Let's be blessed by keeping God's Sabbath.

    The only church in the world that perfectly observes worship to God on Sabbath Saturday is the World Mission Society Church of God.

    We should not add or subtract anything from the Bible. The Bible contains God's words. How can we change the words of God? We should not add our opinion in God's words. God commanded us to keep the Sabbath day then we should keep it as holy. Even God came down this Earth and showed us the example of keeping the Sabbath day. Then shouldn't we follow the example of God that our God showed us? The Sabbath day is the day we receive God's promised blessing and the way we practice to enter the eternal kingdom of God. When we obey and follow God's words, we will receive abundant blessings if not, we won't receive any. Let us observe the Sabbath day holy and regard the day as God's gift.

    The day God told us to keep is the Sabbath. However, the world is worshipping on Sunday, not the Sabbath. The Bible tells us not to add or subtract any from God's words. We should not add or subtract from God's words by observing the Sabbath that God told us to keep.

    Don't add or subtract the words of the Bible.
    Because it leads us to redemption.
    If the Bible tells you to observe the Sabbath on Saturday, you should follow it as it is.
    Because it is God's teaching.
    Let us all do what the Bible says and come to salvation!

  • 2024-01-14 13:32

    Nothing should be added or subtracted from anything other than what the Bible says. We must only do and put into practice the words given. Are Sunday services and Christmas in the Bible? doesn't exist. The Bible teaches that God's people must keep the Sabbath and Passover.
