Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is alive and active…” The Bible is authoritative due to divine inspiration, but what good would this authority be if what was written in the Bible was unreliable? We not only have Gods authority behind the Bible we also have Gods verity in the Bible. This is what is called inerrancy. Inerrancy is being unquestionably true and accurate and free from errors and mistakes. The Bible speaks of itself in such a way in Psalms 12:6 “And the words of the Lord are
And Mathew28:18 say “Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”. That means that the word of god has authority. And just like Jesus – the revelation of god - has authority that was given by The Father, so does the word of God. Next we’ll discuss inspiration. As I believe, we can define inspiration as a supernatural guidance from the Holy Spirit poured upon a person, and that influence gives the individual comprehension and make his writings accurate and trustworthy.

Aquinas said: “Consequently, law must needs concern itself mainly with the order that is in beatitude.” From this we can see that the Bible played a big part in the development of Natural Law; this proves that Christians make moral decisions through a multiple of different ways. The Bible clearly has a
It gives great emphasis to the chronological order of the words of God and takes the written words as a whole, using each and every word literally to support your walk with God. Wesleyan theology, on the other hand, focuses on a more abstract interpretation of the bible. Wesleyans see the bible as an enhancement to the Christian faith. They are more into having great confidence in their faith and using the bible as a reference in order to follow God in a more abstract way. They focus on their relationship with God as a whole and don’t see the bible as a step-by-step manual as Fundamentalists do.
Jessie Moore Essay Outline: Placher CSBS 1311.06 Outline I. Placher begins his argument stating that the Bible is true and he will prove his statement correct by finding an another way of explaining how the Bible is true compared to how other believers try to explain. A. Placher’s first minor claim is if we say the Bible is true, then what the Bible means is true as well. He argues that we must comprehend the Bible’s genres, recognize the attitudes toward the narrating of details in history, and think about the social perspective that the Bible was written in to understand the truth about the Bible. 1. Placher states that the genre is important for understanding the meaning of the Bible because different genres make different truth claims.
Biblical Worldview Essay Introduction: The “Image of God.” What is the image of God in a Christian? The “image of God” is vastly used to describe what the Christian faith should portray. We can find this term in the Bible a few times. In the Old Testament, Genesis 1:26-27 to be exact we find that it states that “man is created to the image of God”. I believe that “the belief that mankind is created in the image of God” really is trying to allow us to see that our reflection should be that of those characteristics that God portrays such as compassion, love, understanding, patience, respect and so on.
Verbal inspiration has to do with the actual formation and use of the words themselves. It involves the employment within sentences of nouns, verbs, prepositions, articles, etc. This “verbal” concept of inspiration contends that the Spirit of God guided the holy writers so that the very grammatical modes they employed were divinely orchestrated in order to convey subtle meanings of truth. While biblical scholars acknowledge that God used the individual talents and personalities of the holy writers, nonetheless it must be recognized that divine supervision was present so that the exact messages that Heaven intended were
Why is it so important? And, can the Bible really be trusted to be the perfect word of God? Inerrancy is the idea that the original manuscripts were perfect, without error, and were the exact message that God wanted to communicate. Paul Feinburg described inerrancy as: “ …when all facts are known, the Scriptures in their original autographs and properly interpreted will be shown to be wholly true in everything they teach, whether that teaching has to do with doctrine, history, science, geography, geology, or other disciplines or knowledge.” The evangelical leaders that signed the Chicago Statement on Inerrancy had to agree to this definition: “Being wholly and verbally God given, Scripture is without error or fault in all its teaching, no less in what it states about God’s acts in creation, about the events of world history, and about its own literary origins under God, than in its witness to God’s saving grace in individual lives.” The argument over Inerrancy is not a new one. Movement away from strict inerrancy in evangelism has been under observation for a long time, at least since the publication of Edward J. Carnell’s Case for Orthodox Theology in 1959.
Wisdom – is not just good practical judgment or common sense or a high degree of knowledge. The wisdom that is of the Spirit is centered on Jesus. It is concerned with the best way to live. It is God's guidance on how to live as a Christian. (Mark 10:20, 1Cor 12‐14, Luke 18:22) B.
