“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. ”
Jesus said in Luke 21:33, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”
This means not one jot, one tittle, one mark, one abbreviation point…not one word will pass away!
God’s Word is infallible.
In all that it teaches and all it affirms, it is correct and right and perfect. And the Word of God is inerrant. That is, there are no errors in the Scripture. Can you imagine a perfect, pure God breathing out error? Certainly not! God's word is accurate and the very source of truth!
And when you deny the authority of Scripture, you deny the authority of God.
It’s as simple as that. In effect, when you deny or distort the authority of Scripture, you deny and blaspheme the work of the Holy Spirit in giving us the Scriptures and you even defame the deity of Jesus Christ, who is described in the Bible as the incarnate Word of God. His very name is the Word of God!
And while the Word of God…and the God of the Word…are not identical, they are inseparable.
You cannot separate God from His Word. Even Jesus came believing and teaching and preaching the Word of God, affirming the Old Testament and proclaiming the new and the living way of salvation.
That’s why you can trust the Bible through and through.
It’s His Word, telling us how to go to heaven, how to know Jesus Christ, how to experience eternal life, how to know and worship Him!
YOU CAN TRUST THE WORD OF GOD AS THE ULTIMATE source OF TRUTH.
