Changing Words to Teach a Lesson

In college one of my Bible teachers had the entire Bible memorized. In preaching he liked to rewrite a verse to show how people actually believe what it said as opposed to what the verse actually says.

One I have liked to do is to replace the word Perish in John 3:16 with “live forever in torture”. Some work better than others, but the following makes the point. This one concerns today’s anti-Christ Jews.

Genesis 12:3a “”And I will bless them that bless those Jews who hate Christ, and curse him that curseth those who are Anti-Christ””.

Besides the fact that Abraham was not a Jew, Christ said my [Israelite] sheep hear my voice and follow me. There is no “maybe someday” in all of scripture. True Israel has followed Christ for almost 2000 years.
