The Bestseller of all times is such a high-quality composite book that the Maker stands for its integrity. Not to be added to or removed from the Bible text.

The Scriptures must always be used honestly and text fragments quoted with the right intentions. 

 “And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” (Mic 4:2 AV)
