I know this is true because it says so in the Bible. I believe the Bible is the word of God, given to man, and written into a book. My view on this is the same as Billy’s view on the nature of God. Billy said “The Bible is a book of Redemption, and of course I accept the Creation story. I believe that God did create the universe.” (Letters to Creationist, 2010).
I want to show and tell others what He has done for me and what He can do for them. Scripture makes it clear that God is with us. (Haggai 2:4) says; “Be strong you people of the land declares the Lord and work for I am with you”. Whenever someone receives the Lord Jesus Christ by faith as his Creator and Savior he or indeed becomes “a new creation” (II Corinthians 5:17), and the miracle of regeneration is always recognized in Scripture as an instantaneous event accomplished by the Creator in the mind and heart of the believer at the time of
REL 3000 24 April 2007 The Sermon on the Mount teaches us through Jesus Christ what God wants us to do. Jesus taught through God’s word and through example. His miracles touched many lives of nonbelievers, and his word was echoed throughout the land. Through his gospel, we are able to love, worship, and practice a life full of certainty. He taught us to be kind and not to judge, to treat our neighbors respectfully.
The Bible has such a source of authority, God. This is what is commonly known as divine inspiration. Divine inspiration is “the guidance or influence of the Holy Spirit on the human writers of Scripture so that God controlled them in such a way that what they wrote was exactly what God wanted them to write without error.” (Towns 2008) Support for this inspiration is revealed in scripture like II Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” The term “God breathed” translates to mean “divinely breathed”. Elmer Towns notes “since breath is life, when God put His Spirit into the words of Scripture, He was also putting His life in Scripture.” (Towns 2008) God placed his endorsement of authority on the Holy Scriptures with his own breath and at the same time gave divine life to the Bible. 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?
Also, ‘the angels are sons of God’, (Job 1:6 NIV, TLB), in a sense that they are His creation.” (Sleman 12). After “God the Father,” there is “God the son,” meaning Jesus Christ is God’s son and also, a representation of God himself. Christians believe if they believe in the “son of God,” then they believe in God as a whole. Lastly, there is “God the Holy Spirit,” which is the power of God. Christians see that God gives life and he lives through His own spirit.
The New Testament is commonly referenced as the Old Testament revealed. Genesis is the first of five books that were written by Moses known to most scholars as The Pentateuch or Book of Moses. Genesis lays the very foundation of the entire bible. It is the heartbeat of every true believer’s walk with God. If a Christian does not understand Genesis; it may be extremely difficult for them to truly grasp the entire concept of God’s salvation by grace.
Throughout the story Michael’s will is tested, but he stands strong in what he believes and puts all his faith and trust in God. There is something about him, and his look makes men treat him with respect. Michael knows what he is about, even if the rest of the world doesn’t. “Redeeming Love” is a story of God’s unconditional love. Michael Hosea plays the role of Hosea from the Old Testament.
They refer to the scripture Psalm 83:18, according to the King James Version of the Bible: "That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth." In the New World Translation, the scripture at Isaiah 42:8, "I am Jehovah. That is my name." (Jehovah's Witnesses—Who Are They? What Do They Believe?, 2012) The name Jehovah appears almost 7,000 times in the original Hebrew Scriptures although most Bibles do not show it as such but substitute "God" or "Lord" for
(Religious-Science.com 2008) The truths about the purpose of life and that our creator, God wants us to be happy and that he has a plan for each one of us. There are many references to truth in the Holy Bible. One of the best known verses “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6) explains that Jesus is the truth. In a search for the keyword “truth” online of the Official King James version of the Bible, 364 references of the word in bible verses can up.
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.
