Man's Error or God's Infallible Word

Views 817

For me personally I believe that the bible is the infallible Word of God but what is surprising is, those in the church who do not believe the bible was inspired by God - the Holy Spirit. God is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19). God's word will stand forever (Isaiah 40:18, Matthew 24:35).

2 Timothy 3:16 AMP All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God's will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; 17 so that the [a]man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Every scripture, that is every, written in the bible was God-breathed. Man's hand wrote but God guided. God wrote His word for the purpose of:

1. Teaching useful things
2. To show error in our life
3. Correct our faults
4. Train us to live righteously

You can see how convenient it is to say God's word has mistakes, or more to the point, is not all true because then it is an easy step to - God didn't mean that about my sin and His holiness.

2 Peter 1:19-21 KJV 19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

The prophets of the Old Testament were inspired by the Holy Spirit to write about things they did not and could not understand. They tried but it was above them.

Jude 1:3 ESV Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.

Jude wanted to write about the salvation they share but he felt it necessary to write about contending for their faith. What happened?

Necessity - anagke = strong force needed to accomplish something compulsory (absolutely required), The verb anankazo denotes the outward influence or pressure by someone upon another (HELPS Word-studies)

Jude wanted to write about the joy of their shared salvation but God wanted him to write to the believers about fighting for their faith.
