Authority of the Bible

 

Bible, Authority of

           Trying to destroy or defend the Word of God is like having two men push with toothpicks on opposite sides of the Rock of Gibraltar. While one is trying push it over with his toothpick, the other is trying to hold it up with his. The rock is going to stay firm regardless of what either man does!

 

Bible, Authority of

           The authority of Scripture is so rooted in and closely linked to the authority of Jesus Christ that the two are indivisible. To attempt to distinguish them is like asking which blade of a pair of scissors is more important, or which leg of a pair of pants is more necessary. We know Christ through the Bible, and we understand the Bible through the knowledge of Christ and the Spirit he sent.
