Scripture: Jeremiah 26:1,2
Jeremiah 26:1,2 make it very clear that when it comes to Biblical principle we have an obligation. That obligation is simple. Verses 1,2 state, “In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, this word came from the Lord, saying, Thus says the Lord: ‘Stand in the court of the Lord’s house, and speak to all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the Lord’s house, all the words that I command you to speak to them. Do not diminish a word.’” Jeremiah was warned, “Do not diminish what I tell you to say. Preach the Word, but do not diminish it in any way, shape or form! If you diminish the Word, you will become responsible for the fate of these people and you will not like it at all!” Scripture is very clear. When it comes to speaking what God says, we need to say it exactly as we hear it. We cannot water it down, we cannot try to make it pleasant and we cannot try to make it something it is not. We must say it like we hear it. That is the obligation.
