2 Timothy 3:15-17 “And that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”
To the glory and honor of Jesus Christ I offer to the reader links to a seventeen part blog series I recently completed entitled: “Why the Bible”. The series is found on my daily blogsite: pastormahlon.blogspot.com. Readers are more than welcome to use as much of the series as possible. In the series we deal with such topics as the Bible’s inspiration, preservation, canonicity and inerrancy. Other subjects such as the uniqueness of the Bible in comparison to other religious books and the issue of the pseudepigrapha, the apocrypha and the trustworthiness of the 66 books are discussed.
The hope is that this series has introduced the reader to what is a vast and important subject. The title “why the Bible” was chosen to be stated in either the form of a question to deal with opposing viewpoints or as a simple declaration to express what the Bible itself is. The opening text above is where we started in this series. The reader must never forget that the battle for the Bible is never over but must be waged by every pastor, teacher and person in the pew. To that end I simply point the reader to the links of every post with the hope of equipping and encouraging other Christians to declare and defend the faith once for all delivered to the saints. Why the Bible? Because our lives both here and for eternity depend upon it being the Word of God, pointing to God and being the written form of God’s voice in today’s world for the glory of Jesus Christ.
