The Lion Will Lay Down With the Lamb

How many of you have seen images such as this one in your local Christian bookstore? How many of them have a slogan similar to the title of this blog? How many of you have actually quoted this slogan when talking to others? Guess what?

It is not in the Bible!

If professing Christians spent more time actually reading the Bible instead of getting their theology from bogus sources and repeating false information with the blind belief that it comes from the Bible, then perhaps more Christians would know their Bible and would not be lead astray by false doctrines and doctrines of demons.

What does the verse actually say?
"And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, And the leopard will lie down with the young goat, And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little boy will lead them." Isaiah 11:6
Where the idea of "The lion and the lamb shall lie down together" came from, I do not know. But if more Christians read their Bibles and knew their Bibles, they would know that no such verse exists. But these same professing Christians think the Bible says, "Cleanliness is next to godliness," and, "God helps those who help themselves." So... if I help myself to your hard-earned money, I better not hear you complaining or calling the police because, according to your theology, God is helping me.
