Without adding, changing or removing

And he strictly ordered them not to make him known. (Mark 3, 12)

Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the sea, and a great crowd followed, from Galilee and Judea and Jerusalem and Idumea and from beyond the Jordan and from around Tyre and Sidon. When the great crowd heard all that he was doing, they came to him. And he told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, lest they crush him, for he had healed many, so that all who had diseases pressed around him to touch him. And whenever the unclean spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, “You are the Son of God.” And he strictly ordered them not to make him known. (Mark 3: 7-12)

During His public life Jesus did not want demons to reveal His divine nature to mankind. For those who are against Jesus, even if they speak the truth, they speak to deceive men and not to lead them to God. So when we are called to speak about Jesus, let us faithfully proclaim His Word without adding, changing or removing whatever is disturbing to us.
