Sacrilege!

Sacrilege! 
(by Octavius Winslow) 

Cultivate a profound reverence for God’s Word. Nothing is more grievous to the Holy Spirit than a trifling with revelation. The words of Scripture are divinely inspired. “Holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.” 

Beware of referring to it with levity. To adopt the words of Scripture irreverently, or to employ its phraseology flippantly, is to cast discredit upon inspiration, to press it into the service of the flesh, and to make the Word of God the jest book of the profane. This is awful trifling with the thoughts and words of the Holy Spirit! 

Stand in awe of this Holy Book! 

God says, “I will bless those who have humble and contrite hearts, who tremble at My Word.” Isaiah 66:2 

“Then all who trembled at the Words of the God of Israel…” Ezra 9:4 

“We will follow the advice given by you and by the others who respect the commands of our God…” Ezra 10:3 

“My flesh trembles in fear of you; I stand in awe of Your laws.”   Psalm 119:120 

“My heart stands in awe of Your Word.” Psalm 119:161 

(Editor’s note: How very sad is it that many professing Christians use the holy Word of God to amuse others with ‘bible jokes’ and in other trifling and irreverent ways. Much of today’s pseudo Christian music, movies and children’s literature use the Word of God in a flippant manner, if not in a downright profane and sacrilegious way.)

One Response to “Sacrilege!”

  1. This is an important post and very timely. One of the most distressing things I heard in recent days was a plan to change the Word to make it more ‘inclusive’ to 2018 thinking about certain social issues. I was disturbed and have said so when the shared discussion arose. Tampering with the Word is surely a severe sin and answerable to God if it is manipulated to say something different to what the Holy Spirit inspired.
