Well, I wasn't done yet. Sorry I had to step out for a while. I tend to agree with the sentiment you raise here, that God's word doesn't need to be purified. However, of your own admission, the bibles that we have today are full of impurities. Obviously something would have to occur if we were to have the pure words of God. How can you say that the verse is not prophetic, just because it says 'are' and not 'will be'? Romans 4 17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. That is perfectly within the nature of God to say that something is before it has occured, this just shows the certainty of the thing coming to pass. Look who said it, after all.
