The Word of God can be edited.
There have been numerous changes to the text of the Book of Mormon with each new release, even though Joseph Smith said:
“… we heard a voice from out of the bright light above us, saying, ‘These plates have been revealed by the power of God, and they have been translated by the power of God. The translation of them which you have seen is correct, and I command you to bear record of what you now see and hear.’” (History of the Church, by Joseph Smith, Vol. 1, pp. 54-55)
