I even believe the cool maps! Yeah, Still do -- it's the attitude I want to have towards the Book.

Yup, more than helpful information, colorful, well proportioned and detailed -- great maps in there too. It's not just any great storybook! Really, what's not to love about the living Word?

Did you know that Jesus Christ believed the inspired Scriptures, and that He wisely practiced them.. perfectly as well? Yup, He did. And never sinned. So if God the Son did, shouldn't we now.. and daily? Jesus believed in Adam and Eve (like they’re real people cuz they are) and in creation and Abraham, and in Moses up there on that mountain top, and in Noah with his Ark traversing through flood waters, and in Jonah deep down there (for three days) in the belly of the fish that got hungry. Real fish, real human that got hurled up!

Hey Buckaroo.. don't know about you, but I'm goin’ with Jesus and the Bible!

"The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold of me." ~ Martin Luther

The incorruptible seed of the Word of God--it lives! I say.. if someone has no spiritual appetite for the living Word of God then there is a 99.9% chance that they are sadly not yet a real Christian. I'm convinced of this. Only God can see the inner condition of the heart, but I believe they are not yet saved, they do not yet have the Holy Spirit living on the inside of them.. because this appetite a result of Him living on the inside. But they could today -- right now! What would prevent you from coming as you are? Have you turned and trusted Jesus.. are you born again?

Listen, you're never more like the devil himself.. when you put a question mark on the Bible? Mr Lu-Cifer and his buds (Satan and his crowd) have tried that so many times. This liar and his crew have tried over and over again to get rid of the Bible. The words in this Book have been so hated, when they should be so loved. They came to us from our First Love! Hello! Yes, the Bible is God’s love letter to the believer.

Did you know that 88% of households in America own a Bible today, and 180+ million people here have downloaded a Bible app. It’s true. The Bible has been translated into 937 languages and language dialects.. not into all yet. I have diligent friends who are Wycliffe Bible Translators who tell me. This is why we travel on purpose--to get the Bible Message out further.

All-sufficient truth--true forever and for everyone!  

"So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17 NKJV

We Christians still believe in the inerrancy of the Bible, in the verbal plenary inspiration of the Scriptures. It's an essential and never forget that our unity as Christians is only to be around a meaningful relationship with the Christ of the Bible... and this Book’s Essentials. Nothing more. May God help us live in, and love the Word more!

What Kurt?.. "verbal plenary inspiration", what exactly does this phrase mean? “Verbal” means every word. It means that every word of Scripture is God-given. Sure, given out of love. The idea is that every single word in the Bible is there because God who controls the whole universe.. wanted it there for people.

It's true through and through, not just a part or parts of the Bible are inspired by God. All of the Bible is. And that's why we carefully preach and teach through all the council's of God.
“Plenary” means Authoritative, yes, that all parts of the Bible are equally authoritative. This includes such things as the genealogies of the Old Testament. All parts of the Bible are of divine origin. Jesus said.
Lots of people tell me how the Roman Church and the Evangelical Christian Church have, through the years, failed (true, I have too), but I respond with.. the Bible derives none of its authority from the Church and God hasn’t.
Does the Bible say the word Trinity? Yet the Bible clearly teaches us that the doctrine of the Trinity is true. Ya gotta well recognize.. you've got to know down in your knower, that it is NOT NECESSARY that the Bible explicitly and formally teach sola Scriptura in order for this doctrine to be true.
Sola Scriptura -- Scripture alone is the primary and absolute source for all doctrine and practice (faith and morals). The Scriptures that we hold dear are a direct revelation from God Himself.
The Bible is God breathed. Yes, in 2 Timothy 3:16 Paul tells us, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” And this is the only use in the whole Book of the Greek word theopneustos, which means exactly that: “God-breathed, or totally inspired by God.
I pray that you’ll be greatly encouraged to meditate upon Scriptures.. especially the passages that address your weaknesses, that you’d memorize the verses that would make a personal impact with you, your friends and family members. We are not to worship the Bible of course, but the Bible specifically instructs us how to and how not to.. worship our one God as He desires.
The Word of God is alive, Authentic, Authoritative, Active I personally love reading through the Proverbs and the Gospels--I love reading through all the books and letters. You know, none of us are to ever outgrow these habits in the Word! I dare you if I may, to pray, praise, worship Christ, and read through all the counsels of God giving Him all the Glory!

The Bible says, "Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following the same pattern of disobedience. For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it pierces even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight; everything is uncovered and exposed before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account." Hebrews 4:11-13

The B I B L E, That's the book for me! But Kurt, wait, hasn't this Bible that we know been corrected, you know tweaked over and over through the years? Nope, God has preserved the Bible very well for us. What's holding us back. Come to and love the living Word (Christ)! With passion, brag on the Word -- so SO wonderful and brag-worthy!
