NO ADDITION OR SUBTRACTION WITH THE BIBLE


Expanding on the morning message I heard, we should aim to not be either Pharisees or Sadducees.  Pharisees ADD to the Word of God and end up making what they ADD more authoritative in their lives than the Bible.  The Pharisees honored their traditions and man-made rules about the Word of God.  Today's Pharisees have endless rules for dress or for giving, the health and wealth gospel, liberation theology, you name it.   The Sadducees SUBTRACT from the word of God. Today's Sadducees claim Genesis is an allegory instead of the narrative Jesus believed in and promoted, promote women into roles forbidden by scripture, emphasize the verses on love while subtracting those on judgment while teaching wider mercy and universalism ideas, ignoring the clear teaching of God's word.  Other Sadducees are cessationists denying the sorely needed gifts of the Holy Spirit or racists ignoring the book of James which puts partiality right up there with the more commonly mentioned sins.   It is best to simply take ALL of God's word as literally God speaking and neither ADD nor SUBTRACT from it in order not to be judged by God.
