The Bible Has Never Changed
Proverbs 119:152; 2 Peter 1:16
All speeches on the floor of Congress or in committee meetings become part of the Congressional Record. But you can’t always be sure that what was originally spoken or decided will be in the Record. This is due to the exercise of one of the most rigidly guarded privileges of House and Senate members: the right to “revise and extend” their remarks. It was granted originally to allow minor technical corrections in bills and speeches. Congressmen now use it to delete erroneous statements and claims and to add to or subtract from bills that are passed.
The Bible’s Author wrote and, having written His record, never changed a word. He is never embarrassed by an untimely remark; He never apologizes for anything He said. He never said anything in haste and, consequently, never has to repent in leisure. What is written stands written. We may teach all that God has revealed through Christ in His Word – nothing less and absolutely nothing more.
