Fill-in-the-blank Bible

If you take the Word at its word, it is God’s Word. Because it is God’s Word, it is truth (John 17:17), it is inerrant (John 10:35), it is sufficient for every Christian need (2 Timothy 3:15-17). Are you a real disciple ofJesus? The way you treat the Bible tells the tale (John 8:31-32). It is the end result of a long, deliberate process (Hebrews 1:1-2), done through men moved by the Holy Spirit who wrote out God’s self-revelation, rather than products of their own will (2 Peter 1:20-21).

And it’s markedly complete. No essential God-breathed book has been found that antedates Genesis, nor any that post-dates Revelation. The whole vital, need-to-know story and all the details are there: God, man, the universe, the meaning of life and everything. How it all started, how it all ends, what we’re to be believing and doing (and not believing nor doing) in the meanwhile.

And there’s so much of it. Sixty-six books chock-full of revelation. So much that most professing Christians (to our shame) have never even read it all.

In the light of that, what explains a movement that in effect trivializes it all? (emphasis mine)

There’s no point in reinventing the wheel on this issue. Pyromaniac’s lively post is much more interesting to read than anything I could have come up with anyway. 🙂 Full Post Here   Plus, another excellent post at Four Simpsons!

    Good for Pyromaniacs. We need a fire started on this issue of biblical trustworthiness and sufficiency.
