Luke 4:4, "And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God." Luke 8:11, "Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God." Romans 10:17, "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." 2 Corinthians 2:17, "For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ." 1 Thessalonians 2:13, "For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe." 1 Timothy 4:5, "For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer." Hebrews 4:12, "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." 1 Peter 1:23, "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever." Are you sure that you have the pure word of God? Your eternal destiny is at stake. Your faith in Christ is at stake. Your relationship with God is at stake. Are you willing to take your chances with a counterfeit?
