Most young children enjoy the Toy Story movies. Many of these youngsters have an action figure of their favorite character. Perhaps the most flamboyant of these heroes is astronaut Buzz Lightyear. Buzz is brimming with self-confidence and enthusiasm. His catch phrase is, “To infinity and beyond!”
I enjoy teasing little kids who like Buzz. I will intentionally mess up his line by saying, “To infinity and then just a little bit farther!” They always respond by saying something like, “That’s not how it goes!”
It’s not such a big deal to change a line from a cartoon movie. However, we had better be careful when talking about what the Bible says. God doesn’t like it when we twist his words around!
“I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.”—Revelation 22:18-19.
