What Not To Forget In Battle #1: Your Sword

I’m going to be responsible and not use blogging to procrastinate, even though that’s what I want to do, so this will be short.

All I really want to say is this: the Bible is truth. I believe many authors of Christian literature have a true gift for writing and teaching, and reading books about the Bible and Christian life is super helpful and a good thing to do. But we have to remember that the Bible is the standard and the only book we can be sure is completely true. Yes, God speaks through others, but we have a responsibility to check what they say and/or write against the Bible. Yes, God speaks through visions and prophecy, but again, we always have to check it against the Bible. If it doesn’t agree, then which will we accept – the words of people, who after all are only human like everyone else, or the Word of God?

“For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12

“I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word. Do good to your servant, and I will live; I will obey your word.” Psalm 119:16-17

“All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.” Psalm 119:160

For more on this, see all of Psalm 119.
