DANGEROUS DISTORTIONS

TEXT:

Gen. 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, YE SHALL NOTEAT OF IT, NEITHER SHALL YE TOUCH IT, LEST YE SHALL DIE.

Mark 8:24 And he looked up, and said, I SEE MEN AS TREES, WALKING,

2 Peter 3:9-18,

9.The Lord is not slack concerningHis Promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

16 --- which some are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also other scripture, unto their own desrtruction.

18 But grow in grace and in knowledge of our Lord ...

Untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction -- the Scriptures.

Read -- You need more than a teacher to scratch your itch, 2 Tim. 4:3,

2 Thessalonians 2:11, warns that they should believe a lie.

Today, I am pondering distortions.

Man seems to have the ability to twist and twist things to ease his conscience or hide the real facts, until he really believes his case.

This kind of distortion can be very dangerous.

lOOK HOW WASY IT IS TO TWIST THE WORD OF GOD.

Eve started twisting things and we today seem to like to continue the twisting until there is distortion that we hide the real meaning and thus it is easier to do wrong.

Gen. 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, YE SHALL NOTEAT OF IT, NEITHER SHALL YE TOUCH IT, LEST YE SHALL DIE.

What did God really say?

Gen. 2:16 And the Lord God commanded the man saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest eat freely.

17 But of the tree of the good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it, for in the day that thou eatest thou shalt surely die.

EVE ADDED THE PART ABOUT TOUCHING.

Eve added her opinion to the word of God?

We can add our opinion and distort the truth?

God never said that, Eve did.

Rules are not bad.

Rules and following rules can test our nature and our heart.

Did you hear the story about the lady that had a very expensive bird?

The bird developed a terrible cough,

the owner fear the

bird was dying.

The cough got worse and worse.

Finally, she wrapped the bird in a towel and took

it to the veterinarian for a check up.

The doctor gave the

bird a physical examination,

and could not find anything wrong.

But the vet did give the lady a few pills for the

bird just in case.

The lady took the bird home.

The terrible, hacking cough grew worse and worse.

In the morning the bird would almost cough it’s

head off.

The lady was very concerned, and called the vet

again. He told her to bring the bird back to his

office.

This time the doctor heard the terrible cough.

But the bird’s lungs appeared clear.

The vet drew some blood to send to the state

university

for a complete analysts.

They would develop a medical plan for the bird,

to possibility save the bird’s life.

Several days later, all the test had been completed.
