All Scripture

Something to think about.

All Scripture

16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

We have people who question the veracity and the originality of the scriptures. Claiming the written word has been tainted, changed or influenced by transmission, translation and out-and-out conspiracy. All of these accusations are based on an incorrect understanding of God. God who created the universe is capable of maintaining His word intact throughout the generations.  The idea that God inspired people to write His instruction manual and then left it to be changed and manipulated is ludicrous. God’s word “is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,” because He has taken special care to ensure that it has remained unchanged by the passions, ambitions, and manipulations of man. It is Gods word and not mans word as such He will never let the world be without it. God will not allow His divine word to be replaced by a polluted counterfeit production of Man. 

Disciples, Freedom

Something to think about.

Disciples, Freedom

31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

We all have recited or memorized verse 32. It’s almost as if we will know the truth and the truth will set us free by osmosis. In order to know the truth, we must first look at verse 31 “If you abide in my word” then you can be called a disciple, then you will know the truth. To know the truth, we must become intimately aware of Gods word. We cannot arrive at any truth if we don’t know the giver of the truth. We must become engulf in and in obedience to all of the teachings of Christ to know the truth and then be set free by it.
