This lesson was taught on June 6, 2021 with Wayne starting a new study on reviewing the Bible, its Inspiration and Preservation. This study is so important to Christianity today because the Bible is under attack. Each Christian who attends a Bible Study and experiences the issue when you have those in attendance read scripture and they don't have the same Bible. In newer Bibles some verse have been omitted or reworded because they have been created from "a better manuscript", which is the explanation that is given for the omission or change. In this first lesson, Wayne shares examples of how modern bibles have omitted very important verses. We learned that God has magnified His Word above the excellence of His name from Psalm 148:13 "Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven." and Psalm 138:2 "I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name." It seems pretty important that we study what we use as the preserved word of God in our Christian walk. The scripture reading was from Psalms 138:1-2 KJV
"1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee. 2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name."
