Brothers and sisters the “Mandela Effect” has wrought another very disturbing change to our Bibles. This is no small matter. Do you think charity and love are the same? When you get married do you promise to charity each other so long as you both shall live? That would be a preposterous and nonsensical thing to say wouldn’t it? Does the Bible say that God is charity? No, God is love!
1 John 4 (KJV)
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
Some versions of the Bible already had charity in place of love. (which was wrong) The King James Bible always had the word love throughout this, the very well known “Way of Love” passage. All of the red words below should be Love.
1 Corinthians 13 King James Version (KJV)
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
Or, how about:
1 Peter 4:8 (KJV)
8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
As sure as I know my own name this verse used to read:
1 Peter 4:8 (KJV)
And above all things have fervent love among yourselves: for love covers a multitude of sins.
Are we simply miss-remembering these passages? Was charity there all along? Never! All or parts of these verses have been read at tens of millions if not hundreds of millions of weddings and sermons over the centuries. They were read by ministers pastors, priests and laymen directly from the King James Bible! You aren’t going to try to tell me they all read it wrong are you?
What about the millions of sermons preached in church Sunday services? Can you imagine any pastor actually standing up on the pulpit and telling his congregation, “if I give all I have to feed the poor, but don’t have charity I am nothing”? That would be a very asinine thing to say. That won’t preach brother! If you give everything you have to feed the poor, that is the very definition of charity!
What about the extant poetry, song lyrics and quotes in print of all or parts of this passage going back hundreds of years all over the world? Did they all get it wrong as well? To say that everyone got it wrong would be beyond absurd.
Even more absurd (if that were possible) are the lettered divinity scholars with their cunning and condescending sophistry to assure us that charity and love are synonymous. They will give us scolding lessons on how the ancient Greek and Aramaic lexicons are unknowable to us and that these changes are merely a trifle. All the while they have missed the entire point. Our Bibles have changed supernaturally! How do they explain that? They can’t so they have to denigrate anyone who dares question the changes in their own Bibles.
Why is this change so important? It demotes love. Love is the greatest gift that God bestowed upon humanity. There is an attack on love.
Many of you have probably heard this before. One philosopher once told me that there is no such thing as love, only lust. I said what about your mom? He had no answer, got frustrated with my obtuseness and walked away.
They attack all that is good. They despise the good. The enemy does likewise.
How many times have you heard people ask, “What is love?”. The people that ask that question are carnal lovers of self. They are mostly incapable of loving anyone else, especially a stranger.
The enemy does not want you thinking about or certainly not practicing love. To the enemy charity is preferable to love. To liberals charity is taking someone else’s money by force and threat of imprisonment to feed the poor and grow the oppressive nanny state. For them charity works out fine. Thus the attack on 1 Corinthians 13.
Thank you to all of our brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, please remember us in your prayers!
