THE INSPIRATION OF THE BIBLE

The Bible is God’s inspired revelation of the origin and destiny of all things, written in most simple human language – II Tim 3:16; II Pet 18:30; Psalm 18:30

WHAT IS GOD’S WORD?

Not everything in the Bible is the Word of God! Because the Bible also contains the words of men, the words on angels, the words of demons and even the words of Satan. Therefore, the Bible is not the Word of God but it contains the Word.

The Word of God is that statement or declaration in that is consistent with God’s plans, purposes and provisions in Christ concerning a person, place, thing or event.
