Obeying God’s Commands

Obeying God’s Commands

It isn’t popular these days to speak of God’s Word as a book of commandments. Commands imply law, and we’re accustomed to grace. But the fact is, both the Old and New Testaments contain many commandments that all God’s people are to obey. Keep Reading

Gaining True Wisdom

David’s characterization of God’s Word as “the testimony of the Lord” (Ps. 19:7) speaks of its role as God’s witness to who He is and what He requires of us. In addition, it’s a “sure” witness. That means it’s unwavering, immovable, unmistakable, reliable, and trustworthy. Keep Reading

God’s Transforming Word

Many today doubt the power of Scripture in dealing with the deeper aspects of the human heart and mind. The Bible may be helpful for certain superficial or “spiritual” problems, they say, but it’s too simplistic and inadequate for the more complex psychological issues of modern man. The truth is, however, the best psychology can do is to modify external behavior. It cannot redeem and transform the soul. Only God can do that through the power of His Word. Keep Reading

A Psalm of Sufficiency

A Psalm of Sufficiency

King David was a man of stark contrasts. He knew the humility of shepherding a flock and the prestige of reigning over a nation. He experienced glorious triumphs and bitter defeats. He sought after God, yet also suffered immense guilt and pain from immorality and murder. That led to even his own son’s seeking to take his life. Some of his psalms reflect great hope and others despair. But through it all he continued to look to God, being assured of God’s sovereignty and the sufficiency of His divine resources. Keep Reading

Submitting to Divine Authority

We might assume that those who affirm the inspiration, inerrancy, and infallibility of God’s Word would automatically submit to its authority. But that isn’t always the case. Even those who hold to a high view of Scripture sometimes fail to obey it. We need to be reminded that the authority of God’s Word isn’t simply a doctrine to be affirmed but a priority to be pursued.

Trusting God’s Word

Trusting God’s Word

Infallibility refers to the truth of Scripture as a whole, whereas inerrancy focuses on the accuracy of every single word. Like inerrancy, infallibility is grounded in the character of God. God cannot lie and does not change (1 Sam. 15:29). He is thoroughly consistent in everything He does, and His Word reflects those characteristics. The psalmist wrote, “The sum of Thy word is truth, and every one of Thy righteous ordinances is everlasting” (Ps. 119:160). Paul said, “The Law is holy, and the commandment is holy and righteous and good” (Rom. 7:12). Keep Reading

Rallying Around the Word

Rallying Around the Word

The term inerrancy conveys the belief that the original writings of Scripture are wholly true in everything they teach—whether doctrine, history, science, geography, geology, or any other discipline or knowledge. It also applies to accurate copies of those original writings. Keep Reading

From the Mouth of God

From the Mouth of God

Second Timothy 3:16 speaks of the inspiration of Scripture. “Inspired” is the translation of a Greek word that literally means “God-breathed.” Every word of Scripture is from the mouth of God! Keep Reading

Modern-day Revelations

Modern-day Revelations

For many years I’ve watched with deep concern as a significant number of Christians have drifted from a thoughtful, Biblical, God-centered theology to one that is increasingly mystical, non-Biblical, and man-centered. One of the most disturbing indicators of this trend is the proliferation of extra-Biblical revelations that certain people are claiming to receive directly from God. Keep Reading
