They twist the truth and perverse the Word of God to make it profitable for themselves. Everywhere you go you hear man's ideology about what God is saying, when in actuality He is not. And to make matters worse, many people have followed bad/tainted information because they have not sought God for discernment nor studied His Word, i.e. the Bible, for the truth.
