What You'll Discover in this Episode:
God Declares Himself
as the Christian's Counselor
In this episode, we will discuss why the Word of God is inspired, inerrant, authoritative, infallible and sufficient. This podcast will provide further understanding in our confidence in the the Scripture and to God as the Author.
To give an introduction about the topic of biblical sufficiency, let us look into the two kinds of revelation:
1. General Revelation
2. Special Revelation
This is what God revealed to all people, in all times and in all places. "For what may be known about God is plain to them because God has shown it to them." Romans 19. This is a truth that is manifestly set forth before all men. It's clear to everybody.
General revelation has a problem in the interpretation of the facts. It is because our minds are less than perfect, purity and a subject to error. In General revelation, we can try to explain the facts of science as we observe the things that we hear, feel, touch, see and taste. The problem is that although the facts might be accurate, we can misinterpret them.
This is the Word of God. It's the Scriptures. It's God's revealed truth to a specific time and people. "All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right." 2 Timothy 3:16.
It's the Holy Spirit of God that moved upon the authors of the scripture to write exactly what he wanted written. It means to "breathe into".
The Bible is God's special revelation to humanity. It contains no error and it is truth. It's the inspired, inerrant, authoritative, infallible, super-sufficient Word of God!
The authority of the Scripture is not derived by humans. It's original authority is God. It does not change with the times, culture, the nation or the ethnic background. It cannot be challenged or overthrown. It is the permanent authority of God. It is the ultimate authority. It is the obligatory authority of God. It is consequential authority.
This is the only rule for faith in life. It always is the authority in all theological controversies including the the topic of the sufficiency of the scripture...
