Do Not Amend!

God alone may exercise the perogative to amend his Word. In other words, Christians may not arbitrarily declare any portion of God's Word void, including any portion of the Old Testament.  Any claim of change between the old covenant and the new covenant must be validated by further revelation of God as found in the Scriptures themselves.  We have one Bible, not two.  Both the Old and New Testaments are to direct the belief and practice of the new covenant believer.  We might as well sever a tree from its roots and expect it to survive, as to sever the old covenant from the new.  The Old and New Testaments are tied together and interdependent.  The Old Testament needs the New Testament, and the New Testament needs teh Old Testament, to be properly interpreted and understood.  Pastor Randy Booth

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
