We Must Never Edit God

But also we must worship Him in truth. Now the worshiper must submit to truth. I can’t worship God acceptably unless I have accepted what God has said about five things. Before my worship is accepted I must accept what God has said about Himself.

We must never edit God.
We must never, never, apologize for God.

No man has any right to get up in the pulpit and try to smooth over or amend anything that God has said about Himself. There is that passage about God hardening Pharaoh’s heart. There have been books written to explain that away, but I will not explain it away. I will let it stand. If I don’t understand it I will let it stand anyway. I believe what God says about Himself.

[Emphasis Mine, Pictures Not Mine]

We must never edit God.
We must never, never, apologize for God.
