Don't Alter the Word

During the end times, it is written that individuals will seek to alter the Word of God and change what we know is the Truth, and seek to get us to believe it. This is the time that we are instructed to hold the Word of God close to our hearts and never forget or forsake what we know is the Truth. 

We see this very thing taking place in the world today. How much sin is overlooked today to be "all-inclusive" with man and what we want, rather than following the teachings in the Bible and the Commands of God and Jesus?

The following Scriptures all discuss this very thing of keeping the Word close to our hearts, for point reference and studying:

As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.
