Most of you don’t know this, but…
I have a bad habit of not letting go of the shift key when I
capitalize a word. It usually comes out as WOr, and not Word. Or THe,
instead of The.
Be glad I didn’t write down the first verse of the Gospel of John!
The situation we have – as seen today from Fundamentalist eyes – is
that Christianity has been overwhelmed by opponents of Christianity.
We’ve been given a viewpoint of something diametrically opposed to
Biblical Christianity, and it has been passed off by fallen angels
masquerading as ministers of light to us as if it were true
How are we saved? I’d say that we’re having a problem even with that
concept since I was a boy.
What are we supposed to believe about the Bible? Most believers hold
to a defective view of Scripture.
Who is a Christian? We hold to a Biblical definition – but then we
welcome under the title of “Christian” people who don’t fit that
I’ve tried to write these articles a dozen times, and never quite knew
how to approach this. But here it is. Should be short, perhaps a week
of small articles you’ll actually have time to read, for once!
The question I want to ask is, how many of you are asking the same
questions? How many of you have come to the same conclusions?
Most of the readers of this blog are here because they hunger and
thirst for righteousness. They don’t agree with everything I write
(that’s a good thing, BTW – if you agree 100% with any human, you’re
in trouble!), but they are of the same mindset – or you wouldn’t be
Let’s talk first about the Bible, because if we can’t get that right,
we can’t get anything right. What’s your standard? The people who
introduced heretical Bibles that deny the deity of Jesus Christ are
trying to make sure you don’t have a standard to measure things
The Bible has no errors. That should get an amen out of you. I see the
attacks on the Bible DAILY by theological liberals every day in my
Logos program. Greatest Bible software in the world, but you pay for
it by constantly seeing the articles appear linking to video
interviews or video blog entries by modernists. “If Archaeology
contradicts the Bible, what should we believe?” Is one such headline
they blared. Here’s the answer, I’m sure all 300 of you thought of it
We believe the Bible, and doubt Archeology. That’s what we should
THe Bible has no errors, No mistakes. Not one word in the Bible is
spurious. Every word there was placed there by the hand of God, put in
the mouths and pens of the Biblical writers. The question we should
think is not, “what did the author intend by this?” but “What did God
intend by this?” If you’re worried about what PAUL teaches, then
you’re already day late, dollar short.
Because if you disagree with something, “Well, that’s just Paul.”
If on the other hand you believe in mechanical inspiration (which I
do, and oddly enough everyone who’s been saved a week or so believes
automatically), then it’s not Paul who wrote it, it’s God writing
through the hand of Paul. God tells me not to have long hair? Yes,
Lord. Paul tells me not to have long hair? That’s just Paul, and I’m
free to choose. See what I mean?
If you grasp this mindset, the Christian faith gains more power, and
holds you secure even in the darkest night.
