“Spiritual Hucksters” Seek to Corrupt God’s Word
2 Corinthians 2:17 (KJB) For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.
There are many “spiritually crooked people” who masquerade as Christians in this world repeatedly attempting to corrupt the Word of God. God knows those who are sincere professing children of God by the internal state of their heart and their willingness to speak of Jesus Christ to lost souls in this world. The people mentioned in the context of this verse willing to speak the Truth. They were genuine Christians and servants of God at work in this world.
There seems to be fewer and fewer people who choose to hold fast to the divine Word of God and choose to apply His truths in this world. Perhaps it often seems like a failing fast spiritual battle in keeping one step ahead of those hucksters who sole directive in this world is to subvert and spoil the Word of God. Remember such individuals were at work against the Truth of God since ancient times.
It is in spiritually desperate times when there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel that a man of God must remember that God promised to preserve His Word forever (Psalm 12:6-7). It is a relief to realize that the preservation process is not up to us, for it has already been accomplished. God’s Word will divinely stand the test of time as we know it in this world and forever in eternity.
Spiritual hucksters may seek to compromise and curtail the Word of God in this world but its existence will stand spiritually stalwart as God has promised His Word will be preserved and profitable forever.
