The "word" or "the word of God" either has multiple meanings or multiple manifestations as this can refer to Jesus Christ... "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one." - 1 John 5:7 ...the audibilized words of God the Father, through men of God... "But the word of God came unto Shemaiah the man of God, saying," - 1 Kings 12:22 ...or, I believe, the preached word as iterated from the written word... "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." - Romans 10:17 Today, we receive revelation through the written word of God contained within what we know to be "The Bible". In our times and in our language, "The Bible" has become "Bibles" for there are many. I hesitate to say that I would die for anything, for no man truly knows until faced with that situation. However, I was pressed to admit this in another thread and in my sobriety, if I was faced with a moment where someone or someones tried to take my Bible from me, I would find this to be something worth dying for. I believe that the Word of God is found today in the Authorized or King James Version and it is this Bible which, should I be faced with no Bible and temporal life or Bible and the guillotine, I would choose the Bible. Questions for Conversation: 1. Would you die for the Word of God? 2. What is your definition of the Word of God? 3. If the Word of God is the Bible, which Bible would you die for?
