“Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action), so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (II Timothy 3:16-17)
The Bible is probably the most controversial book in the history of the world and even today it is hotly contested on its validity. How many of us have said in the past or heard it said that the Bible is fallible because it was written by human beings so it can’t possibly be Truth?
I used to say it when I was backslidden and in the world. The logical mind can’t grasp that this book is God’s Word to mankind. But I believe that God, the Creator of the Universe, the Most High God, The Everlasting One; is smart enough and powerful enough to write a book, using weak, uneducated and faulty men. A book that took thousands of years to compile and translate into just about every known language on this planet. I believe He is smart enough to do that AND use this book to talk to mankind, to help them and guide them out of trouble and show them the way to His Heart.
Yes, the Bible was written by faulty people, but God is able to get the job done anyway. Hold on to His Word because we are going to need it a LOT in the coming days, months and years.
