The RED LETTER CONSPIRACY: Besides red letters being less sharp and clear on the page, red is the favorite color of the number one Bible destroyer, the devil, because he is, in fact, red, as noted in the book of Revelation,

The RED LETTER CONSPIRACY

II Timothy, scripture, inspiration, red letters, rainbow, red, devil, scarlet, Babylon, Holy Ghost, A lot of people have a red-letter edition of the Bible that highlights quotations of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Of course, if you really think about it, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”  (You can find that in II Timothy, but it won’t be in red letters.)  The Lord not only spoke words when here in the flesh, he had all three-quarters of a million inspired, inerrant, infallible words of the Bible penned; so why make a difference with some?  As a matter of fact, I’d call this red letter business, “The Red Letter Conspiracy,” when it ought to be just a black and white issue.

Well, first of all, the red letter editions are a marketing gimmick as the Bible is the most printed book in all of history, and many publishers want a piece of the action.  But have you ever noticed the red letters are not as sharp and clear against the white paper as the black ones?  Check it out.  The words of Christ in red letters are degraded compared to the black letters.  And if the words of Christ are more important than the rest of the God-breathed scripture, maybe someone should color code the whole Bible for you by word importance.  You know, words of Christ in red, words of the Father in blue, words of the Holy Ghost in white (I guess that would make them invisible on white paper, though), and  Moses’ words in green, to name some possibilities.  Why even homosexuals might buy a rainbow colored Bible like that!

Besides red letters being less sharp and clear on the page, red is the favorite color of the number one Bible destroyer, the devil, because he is, in fact, red, as noted in the book of Revelation,   “And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” You don’t think Satan is having a conspiratorial joke with those degraded red letters, do you?  I know, I know, now you’re now going to tell me the red letters stand for the blood of Jesus.  But excuse me; I thought the blood of Christ makes white as snow, and not red like the devil, or scarlet like the whore of Babylon that sits on a scarlet colored beast, or red lipstick that represents the drinking of the blood of the saints by the daughters of the whore.

Here is another consideration:  If Jesus Christ is God - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost - why haven’t all his words been highlighted in red letters?  One reason is, the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost has always been a quandary for those who do not know what his name is in the first place; so they only highlight a portion of his words in the red letter editions.  The Baptists particularly have the name difficulty, as they are so preoccupied with baptism, they don’t know what name to baptize in when they dunk someone.  They just recite the commandment but don’t carry it out, “I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost – whatever it is.”  Oh well, that’s another subject for later. 

And so, until we meet again, remember… God loves you.  Read your Bible all the time in black and white, and soon it will be read all over.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen
