Veritas

A variety of viewpoints are presented from our religious, political, and economic spectrums, but only the absolute truth of the gospel of Christ has the message that ultimately answers the most pressing questions and serious concerns of the human soul. The book is concerned with encouraging and helping church leaders bring spiritual renewal to their people through the biblical gospel.

What is the Gospel? Part 8

In order for us to believe and act upon the Word of God, we have to trust its witness as the Word of God and know "that what the Bible says is just what God would say if he were to speak directly" (Erickson). How could an infinite God and finite human writers produce an inspired, inerrant text? Stott says, "Theologically we may say revelation has come to us through the means of inspiration." God spoke his divine word from his mouth and guided the human authors to write what he wanted written; therefore, the scriptural witness is reliable and sure (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Richard France notes: "It is not that its authors were merely passive channels for a divine revelation independent of their own thoughts; the stamp of the writers' personalities on their books is clear. But the classic Christian belief is that what they wrote in their own language, and in their own historical setting, was directed by God so that the result was no less his word than theirs."
