WHO HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED TO CHANGE GOD'S WILL?

It would seem from modern teachings about the Bible that someone has been authorized to change the will of God. Or, one might say, all men have been authorized to change it to suit themselves according to a particular church creed they seek to have the Bible conform to. It is a universal idea that one can get any meaning he desires out of the Bible, or one can prove anything by the Scriptures. It is also universally accepted that men are free to interpret Scriptures in any way they choose. Who gave them this authorization? It certainly could not be that God has authorized men to change His word and make it meaningless by every theory man can manufacture to excuse his sin and unbelief. If it could not be God, then it must be the work of the devil that makes men think they are free to change the Word of God to suit themselves.
It thus becomes clear that the demons have inspired such fallacies that lead men away from the plain truths of the Bible and make the Word of God of no effect and worse than the fables of men. When one believes any part of any doctrine that contradicts the Word of God he denies truth to that extent. God has no part in cheating men out of what He has willed them through Christ. Christ is the mediator of the New Testament. He is our advocate, or lawyer, and He will not cheat one man out of one part of the will as earthly lawyers sometimes do. Since the will has never been changed by God, all changes are made by demons and men who seek to break the will and keep the rightful heirs from their inheritance.

Martin Luther

He opened Pandora’s Box and let out scores of Bible interpreters.

Protestant self-own ^^^^

(I say that as a sad Protestant.) :(
The Bible says in Tim. 2 4:3, 4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
2 Tim. 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
