|Ephesians 4:25-29 |
25 Therefore put away lying, and every man speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are all members of one another and the same body.
26 Provoked, but not to sin, that the light of day not go down because of your exasperation. [Anger is sin and can cause you to lose the measure of the light of God and day that you have laboriously gained. From the Word of the Lord within: "Do not let the light go down on your anger. Do not be misled; anger must be eliminated to enter the kingdom." Because the translators, schooled by Babylon, don't understand that all anger is sin, this verse is seriously mistranslated in most Bibles to read: "Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger;" which incorrectly implies that your anger is not sin unless you hold onto the anger into the night. Because the original Greek can often be interpreted in several ways, the interpretation chosen is greatly influenced by the translators' beliefs; and if the translators have some incorrect beliefs, those incorrect beliefs will cause them to incorrectly translate many scriptures. Although Paul clearly states in verse 31 below: "Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice;" the translators blithely go on, without a clue to the true gospel, including that the Lord can completely purify person to become like Him.]
27 Leave no room for the devil.
28 Let the former thief, steal no more; but rather let him labor, working with his hands in an honest occupation so that he may have excess to give to him who lacks necessities.
29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth except what is edifying, so that it may minister grace to those who hear you.
