After looking at what I’ve said up to this point, I wondered about what I should say next. The world is full of examples of how NOT to do something. In fact, I am even an example foolishness and bad behavior. Just ask my poor, long-suffering wife.
So, I thought that I would ask you a question and talk about a man that I respect a lot – Pastor David Lankford. Having heard his willingness to restrict himself to what the Bible actually says, I am confident that this is a man who is a living, breathing example of someone who loves God.
Do you love God?

Twisting the Bible – Part 5 – Do You Love God?
I love my wife. There is no person, being or thing that I love more – except God. In fact, I tell everyone that my wife is the second-best thing that has EVER happened to me.
And, when you love someone that much, what that person wants… that person gets. (And yes, I am lucky to be married to a woman who is wise with money.)
Is that how you feel about God?
If God wants something from you…
Are you going to give it to Him?
And, there is one thing that He wants more than any other:
He wants you to love Him. And, He wants that because it is good for you. In fact, you will not escape the evil plans of Satan, unless you love God more than anything – or anyone – else.
You Must Love God
Please, let me emphasize this:
IF you do not love God with every fiber of your being, you will NOT escape what is coming.
You MUST love God. You MUST.
And… when you love someone that much, what they say and what they write and how they write is fantastically important. In fact, how they are doing and what they are doing are of consuming interest.
If they are sad, you are sad. If they are happy, you are happy. If they want to go somewhere, you will find yourself wanting the same thing.
God is perfect, and you will NEVER need to worry that what He wants will be too much for you. His love is perfect and will NEVER betray you. You will NEVER find yourself regretting ANYTHING that He tells you.
So, why aren’t you reading his letters to you?
Your spiritual inbox is full of letters from God, and it’s sitting on your desk.
Do you treasure what it says?
We are in the most dangerous time in the history of mankind. Satan has prepared layer upon layer of deception, and YOU are the target. And your ONLY defense is the words of God, in partnership with the Holy Spirit.
Of course, that only works for children of God – those of you who have accepted the sacrifice of Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. For those of you who don’t and won’t… there is no hope for you.
Accept Jesus As Your Lord And Savior
Please, acknowledge your sins and repent of them. Acknowledge the fact that you are not able to redeem yourself. Acknowledge the fact that you will never be free of your faults and sinful behavior without God. So, confess your sins and acknowledge your inability to do anything for them.
Then accept Jesus as God, who took on the form of a man. Accept Him as one who died to give you Life, who loves you more than even His own creation. Accept His death in place of your own. And accept His forgiveness of you.
God bless you brother or sister, if you have done that.
Now, go and read His love letter that we call The Bible.
I pray that we would all be men and women worth listening to. But, we will never get there by twisting the words of the Bible.
We have a great enemy who seeks our death and our eternal destruction. But, Satan cannot win if we hold God close and revere His words without twisting them.
May we all be ready, when the time comes.
Are you ready for this?
