Not as the Word of Men

On my drive to school today I listened to talk radio. To be perfectly honest I don’t do that often. I don’t even like to watch the news. It’s depressing, and since there are as many opinions as there are opinion-makers, they must be ingested with a strong draught of discrimination if anything intellectually-nutritional is to be gained from them.

Pretty strong words coming from someone who writes a blog! Thankfully, on Taking Back the Bible, we have one saving grace: I Thessalonians 2:13.

On this blog, if we’re careful, our words are not the “word of men.” I Thessalonians says

For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe [italics mine].”

Every true Christian understands that the Bible is not just a collection of works from forty different writers spanning thousands of years . . . it is the very Word of God. It is true, perfect, and efficacious.

As I said, human beings are fallible. My writing is not inspired; it has the potential of being very wrong! But as long as my opinions and philosophies are grounded in God’s Word I cannot go wrong. That goes for you as well! That’s what this site is all about: 1. Taking a firm stand that the Bible is indeed the spoken Word from the one and only, Almighty, All powerful, All knowing God of the universe, & 2. From that starting point, dissecting God’s Word so as to apply it to our lives.
