Scripture Reading: I Corinthians 14:37, II Corinthians 13:3

Many Bibles come in a special edition with Christ's words  printed in red. While this may be useful for quickly  distinguishing our Lord's words from the narrative or words  of others, it has led to confusion and misunderstanding of  Scripture. For one thing, it causes some people to assume that  the words of Christ spoken while on the earth were somehow  more inspired or more important than the words He revealed  to the apostles later. This is especially dangerous when it  comes to the writings of Paul, the apostle of the Gentiles.

Paul repeatedly claimed that the words he spoke and  wrote as an apostle were not his words at all, but rather the  words of the Lord Jesus Christ. He made a special point of  this to the carnal-minded Corinthians: "If any man think  himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that  the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the  Lord" (I Corinthians 14:37).

In his second epistle to this church, Paul said that if he  came to them again, he would not spare, "Since ye seek a proof  of Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but  is mighty in you" (II Corinthians 13:3).

If "red letter editions" were truly consistent, they would  have to print all of Paul's epistles in red, for Paul's words are  the words of Christ too. "For I neither received it of man,  neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ"  (Galatians 1:12). Furthermore, they are the words of Christ to  us today!

Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
