Did God actually say?

In reflecting on my good friends blogpost http://web.me.com/toddgroup/digital_publius/Blog/Entries/2008/12/22_What%E2%80%99s_In_A_Name_(Calling).html
there were many thoughts that went through my mind. Yet the scripture from Genesis 3:1 kept ringing in my head. Did God actally say, You shall not eat of any tree in the garden? And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, but God said, You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die. We see here a play on words for the woman has changed what the Lord had spoken in ch 2 v18 You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.

December 11th the title of the Christian Post article reads “Oxford Junior Dictionary Drops Christian Words” The article states – “Christian-related words like “bishop,” “chapel,” “disciple,” “minister,” “sin,” and “devil,” have been replaced by words like “blog,” “biodegradable,” “MP3 player,” “democratic,” and “celebrity,” in the 2007 edition of the popular children’s dictionary in the United Kingdom.” The reason ” Vineeta Gupta, the head of children’s dictionaries at Oxford University Press, told the Telegraph the changes were made to reflect a “multicultural” society.

Society as a whole is ok with it. Change a words meaning to fit whatever I want it to mean. All sounds like relativism to me. Your truth is your truth and my truth will be mine. What we are talking about on a grander scheme is the removal of God Himself from the lives of everyone. If he “satan” can plant doubt, replace or remove words and the meanings thereof I then leave open the door to question the true motives of God Himself.

If it means that I am to be called a bigot because i am intolerant to changing one word of His message then let it be so. Let me fanatically stand on every word that He has given us now and forever more.
