Authority of the Bible

Filed under: Bible Studies,Old & New Testament — Adam Osborne @ 10:39 pm

All scripture is inspired by God!


II Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Mankind doesn’t understand

Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

The bible is the only way to know what is right or wrong. Man can try to think of how he should behave but he can not know the mind of God. He will try to understand how to get to heaven or how to live a good life, but unless he knows the teachings of the bible, he will not get it right.

How many times have you heard someone say, "Well, I believe this" or "I believe that?" Well, like the scripture says, your own thoughts will not lead to salvation and will lead to death. So many people today are risking their eternal salvation on their own thoughts, which won’t do them any good. They need to know God’s thoughts, that’s why GOD had the bible written through his divinely inspired writers.

Don’t add anything to God’s words!



Deuteronomy 18:20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

Be careful what you say. Sunday school teachers, be careful what you teach. If you aren’t sure, confess that you don’t know and find out the truth.

Revelation 22:18-19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

This applies to anyone….teachers, preachers, bible students, etc..

Deuteronomy 4:2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish aught from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

Galatians 1:8-9 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

This scripture relates to false prophets, cults, etc. They may think that they are fooling people here on earth today, but judgment day is coming for them!

Proverbs 30:5-6 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. 6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

Everything that is in the bible is correct and pure. Not just some of it. We might think we find inconsistencies, but that is not the case. We don’t understand, we might think we know it all, but we don’t.

The Holy Spirit’s role in biblical teaching

John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.

An Instruction Booklet for today’s world



II Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Everything you wanted to know about living is in the bible. You need to know nothing else when it comes to life and godliness.

Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Jot = the smallest character in the Hebrew alphabet.

The bible is the ultimate authority concerning God, life, decisions, neighbors, love, and marriage. Anything and everything concerning life’s daily routines is outlines. The ultimate knowledge book.
