How Does God Punish Those Who Add to His Word?

host Adriel Sanchez aired January 13, 2022

Episode 880 Show Notes 

From the Show

Are we invalidating the Word of God by our own invented man-made traditions? Are we neglecting portions of Scripture? Are we saying, “God I will follow you here, but not there”? This is where we, ourselves, have to be careful.

How Does God Punish Those Who Add to His Word?

Questions in this Episode

  1. Why does God command the Israelites to invade Canaan, doesn’t this contradict the command not to murder?
  2. I have heard that anyone who adds or subtracts from the Word of God will be punished. I know that Mormons and Catholics have added to the Bible with other books, so why hasn’t God punished them, why are their churches growing?
  3. In Genesis 6, it talks about giants in the land and how they saw the daughters of man. Are these fallen angels or just giant human beings?
  4. Does the curse in Genesis 3 mean that we lost the freedom that Adam had to choose God for salvation?
  5. Is the Apostolic Church a biblical church?
  6. What Jesus was trying to explain to the disciples in Mark 8:18-21?
