The Bible is God’s Word

What Scripture says, God says; for, in a manner comparable only to the deep mystery of the Incarnation, the Bible is both fully human and fully divine. So all its manifold contents — histories, prophecies, poems, songs, wisdom writings, sermons, statistics, letters, and whatever else — should be received as from God, and all that Bible writers teach should be revered as God’s authoritative instruction. Christians [indeed, all men] should be grateful to God for the gift of his written word, and conscientious in basing their faith and life entirely and exclusively on it. Otherwise we cannot ever honor or please him as he calls us to do.

~ J. I. Packer, Concise Theology (IVP 1993, p. 5; emphasis added)

  2. I am so thankful to God for His grace. Had I not been grounded in His Word, I would still be running around looking for the next wind of doctrine. I would probably be looking for ‘my best life now.’
