The Bible Is Inspired
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." II Timothy 3:16-17. The Bible has been given so that we might live a life that is acceptable unto God. The Bible is the mind of God that has been revealed through the Holy Spirit unto us. The Bible has come by revelation from God. It is not a work of man, neither has it come from the mind of man. Man is not capable of thinking on such a high plane. Because the Bible is inspired of God, it is to be regarded as accurate and authoritative. Nothing other than the Bible is needed for our relationship with God. The Bible teaches us, reproves us, corrects us, and instructs us in God's righteousness. We, therefore, are to hear what the Bible says, and do as the Bible teaches. No other work can lead us to the character that God desires. No other work can reveal unto us what is needful that we might be accepted of God, and enjoy the blessings that He has so richly promised.
