- “Bible-believing” and the authority of scripture: “the unfolding of your words gives light” (derekmaul.wordpress.com)
The Bible says a lot of things. That’s one of the reasons I love to read it all the time; because God is constantly teaching me, nurturing me, nourishing me, and equipping me to share the Good News of God’s love in this broken world.
- Why We Should Study God’s Word. (greatriversofhope.wordpress.com)
The Bible is an incredible book of history and facts that proves that there is a God that created all things. Most important of all, the Bible is the Word of God. It contains the mind of God and His will for each one of our lives. That is why the Bible was given to us.
- 3 Reasons Scripture is not Relative (boldnetwork.wordpress.com)
Scripture is relative to who reads it. it is subjct to interrpretation. At least that is what is being pushed upon the Christian church. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Scripture can speak in different ways to you at different places in your life, but it isn’t some free flowing stream of words that is meant to mean different things to everyone. If you believe in God, then you must believe His word is truth, and truth is not subject to inerpretation.

Not on purpose, but just as a result of errors being made in copies, etc. Therefore, some people say we can’t rely on the Scripture today as authoritative.

- Helping Students understand the importance of Reading the Bible (youthmin.org)
If we only read the Bible for what we can “get out of it” we can be distracted from the heart of God’s revelation, which is Himself. We need to come thirsty.
The most important reason to read the Bible is to understand story of the gospel. The Bible is living and active and is not meant for the bookshelf.
