Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Proverbs 30:5
One thing that we have gotten away from, even as Christians, is trusting and believing in the Word of God. Theres alot of “Christians” today who will claim the Bible is not inspired by the Holy Spirit, and was just cultural writings of the time period. This is why our Churches have strayed so far away from God. When you have no intellectual foundation for your faith, what principles are you standing on?
Its no surprise why many younger people have left the faith. If our elder Christians cant even recognize the Bible as the Word of God, then why should they believe anything they are taught? So why do so many reject the authority of Gods word? Well because if we declare that its truly Gods Word, then we need to submit to Gods Word. We need to do what the Bible tells us to do!
Jesus said “ Everything that was written needed to be fulfilled about Him, including the Torah, The Prophets, and The Psalms” (Luke 24:44) This is an amazing statement by Jesus has he literally confirmed the entire Old Testament in one sentance. Throughout Jesus ministry he spoke these words also referencing the Torah, the prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, ect, quoting the Psalms and Proverbs. Jesus is the Living Word of God and he spoke the Word of God in person.
So if you believe that Jesus has rose from the dead, if you believe Christ has defeated sin and death, then you must believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God otherwise you would be making Jesus a liar.
