Within chapter four there is a reminder from Moses for the the reader that nothing should be added to or taken away from the Word of God. What a comforting reminder! If a person believes that God is telling him something, then he should, at the very least, compare it against Scripture. If it contradicts the Bible, then it clearly isn't from God. If it doesn't contradict the standards of the Bible, then it's worth seeking further prayer and discernment. For instance, God will never tell a husband to cheat on a wife. God will never tell someone to manufacture false idols. God will never tell a person to hate his neighbor. Such thoughts (cheating, making idols, and hatred) are contradictory to the Word of God in the Bible, and followers can rest assured that God will never ask them to carry out such tasks.
You are here: / / Nothing added, nothing taken (Deuteronomy 3-4)
