MISTAKES IN THE BIBLE

2 TIMOTHY

CH 3 VS. 16,17

INTRODUCTION: YEARS AGO, I HAD A DISCUSSION WITH A FRIEND OVER THIS TOPIC. (IT WAS A TRICK QUESTION)

PAUL SAID: “ALL SCRIPTURE IS GIVEN” YET SOME REFUSE PART OF THE SCRIPTURES, AND ACCEPT OTHER PARTS**

SOME BELIEVE IT CONTAINS THE WORD OF GOD , YET PAUL (UNDER THE ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT) DECLARES: “IT IS THE WORD OF GOD.”

THE APOSTLE PETER DECLARED: “WE HAVE NOT FOLLOWED CUNNING DEVISED FABLES, WE ARE EYE WITNESSES.”

THE BIBLE IS THE ALL TIME BEST SELLING BOOK, IT IS ALSO THE BEST PURCHASE MANKIND CAN MAKE.

MOST HOMES TODAY HAVE THREE TELEVISION SETS AND TWO OR THREE COMPUTERS AND ONE OLD DUSTY BIBLE.

THAT COULD VERY WELL EXPLAIN WHY THE WORLD IS IN THE SHAPE IT IS TODAY.

WE NEED THREE BIBLES AND A DUSTY TV SET AND COMPUTER.

WE HAVE BEEN SUBTLY ROBBED OF VALUABLE TIME IN THE WORD OF GOD AND VALUABLE GROWTH IN THE WILL OF GOD BY THESE ADDITIONS TO OUR LIVES.

IF THE BIBLE MAKES NO MISTAKES AND I BELIEVE THAT IS TRUE. IT IS SURELY OF GOD.

WHERE THEN CAN WE FIND MISTAKES IN THE BIBLE?

GOOD QUESTION, IT DESERVES A BIBLICAL ANSWER.

THE ONLY MISTAKES IN THE BIBLE ARE THOSE RECORDED OF THE MISTAKES OF MANKIND THAT RESULTED IN SIN ROBBING MAN OF HIS JOY, PEACE AND FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD.

LET’S LOOK AT SOME OF THOSE MISTAKES FOUND IN THE BIBLE.

I. GENESIS CHAPTER 3 REVEALS THE FIRST MISTAKE RECORDED IN THE BIBLE. MISTAKE OF ADAM AND EVE.

(A) THEIR MISTAKE WAS IN THE DISOBEDIENCE OF GOD’S WORD. (MAN STILL HASN’T LEARNED BETTER ON THIS ONE.)

1. MAN DIDN’T START OUT AT THE BOTTOM AND WORK HIS WAY UP, HE STARTED AT THE TOP AND DIGRESSED DOWNWARD.

2. ADAM AND EVE WERE PUT IN A PERFECT ENVIRONMENT AND YET FOUND A WAY (ASSISTED BY THE DEVIL) TO SIN.

3. GOD SAID: ”HERE IS ALL YOU WILL EVER NEED TO LIVE PERFECTLY AND LIVE FOREVER.”

EAT OF ANY TREE, AS MUCH AS YOU WANT, BUT STAY AWAY FROM THAT TREE IN THE MIDDLE.

(B) GOD HAD NO MORE SAID “DON’T” THAN EVE FOUND A WAY TO “DO”

1. EVER TELL CHILDREN: “DON’T DO THIS OR THAT?”

2. POINT OUT A HORNET’S NEST AND TELL THEM TO KEEP AWAY FROM IT AND GUESS WHAT? THEY WILL INVESTIGATE IT FULLY.

3. WHAT WAS WRONG WITH THIS FRUIT? SPIRITUALLY DEADLY!!!!

WAS IT POISON, UNHEALTHY?

CURIOSITY ALWAYS GETS THE BEST OF US.**(THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT)

4. IT WAS NOT TO BE CONSUMED BECAUSE GOD SAID DO NOT EAT OF THIS TREE.

( C) AS AN INTELLIGENT, RESPONSIBLE CREATURE MAN IS SUBJECT TO THE DIVINE, HOLY AUTHORITVE COMMAND OF GOD. (SIMPLY BECAUSE GOD MADE MAN)**

1. AS A RESULT OF THE FALL, MAN BECAME SELF-WILLED, SINFUL, REBELLIOUS TO GOD AND CONSTANTLY AT BATTLE WITH THE WAY GOD MADE US TO BE.

(D) DISOBEDIENCE RESULTS IN SUFFERING, SORROW, AND DEATH *

II. GENESIS 19 WE FIND THE MISTAKES OF THE SODOMITES. (CALLED GAY PEOPLE TODAY) COMMENT.

(HERE IS ANOTHER LIE OF THE DEVIL)

(A) THEIR MISTAKE WAS UNGODLY LIVING.

1. LOT LOOKED UPON THE WELL WATERED PLAIN OF JORDAN AND CHOSE WHAT ENTICED HIM.

2. HE PITCHED HIS TENT TOWARD SODOM.

(AMERICA HAS DONE THE SAME THING TODAY)

(B) UNGODLY LIVING RESULTED IN DESTRUCTION.

ROMANS 6:23

1. LOT LINGERED IN “SIN CITY” VEXED (TROUBLED HIS RIGHTEOUS SOUL)

2. SAT AT THE GAT WITH SINNERS, LAUGHED AT THEIR SMUTTY JOKES, LOUNGED AROUND IN SINS PRESENCE,

RUBBED ELBOWS WITH VILE SINNERS.

3. HE TROUBLED HIS RIGHTEOUS SOUL. ***

( C) WHEN IT CAME TIME TO TAKE A STAND, HIS TESTIMONY WAS NO MORE THAN A JOKE.

(D) LOT BARELY GOT OUT OF SODOM, WITH HIS CHILDREN. MRS. LOT LOOKED BACK LUSTFULLY AND LONGINGLY AT SIN AND BECAME A PILLAR OF SALT.

1. SIN DESTROYS. HEBREWS 2:2: HOW SHALL WE ESCAPE IF WE NEGLECT SO GREAT SALVATION.

III. LUKE CHAPTER 12: THE MISTAKE OF THE RICH FARMER.

BEING RICH IS CERTAINLY NOT A SIN. JOB WAS THE RICHEST MAN OF HIS TIME, YET GOD SAID HE WAS SPIRITUALLY PERFECT.

(A) THE MISTAKE OF THE RICH FARMER WAS PUTTING MATERIAL THINGS AHEAD OF HIS NEED FOR GOD IN HIS LIFE.

1. TEAR DOWN THE BARNS, WE WILL BUILD BIGGER ONES THAT WILL HOLD MORE GRAIN.

2. TAKE IT EASY AND LIVE THE GOOD LIFE, EAT DRINK AND BE MERRY.

(B) HE LOST ALL BECAUSE HE LACKED SALVATION.

HE WAS WEALTHY IN MATERIAL GAIN BUT SPIRITUALLY BANKRUPT. (COULD NOT GET INTO HEAVEN)

IV. MT. CHAPTER 26. MISTAKE OF THE APOSTLE PETER.

(A) HIS MISTAKE WAS DENYING CHRIST.

RECENT REMARKS: “LORD I’LL FOLLOW YOU ANYWHERE, LORD, I’LL DIE FOR YOU.

(B) JESUS SAID PETER; YOU CAN’T EVEN LIVE FOR ME.
