Is the Bible Just Another Book?

The attached sermon is a MUST-see for anyone interested in learning about the validity of the claims of the Christian Bible. During the recent Ligonier Conference 2010, Pastor Steve Lawson delivered this masterful sermon on 2 Timothy 3.16 (the verse from which this blog derived its name) and develop the following list of 10 reasons to believe that the Christian Bible is the Word of the one, true, and living God:

  1. The direct claims of the Bible (2 Timothy 3.16; 2 Peter 1.21).
  2. The perfect unity of the Bible.
  3. The reliable transmission of the Bible.
  4. The historical accuracy of the Bible.
  5. The scientific accuracy of the Bible.
  6. The prophetic accuracy of the Bible.
  7. Jesus Christ’s testimony about the Bible.
  8. The amazing indestructibility of the Bible.
  9. The ethical superiority of the Bible.
  10. The supernatural power of the Bible.

Please don’t just settle for the replication of the list here. If you are at all interested in discovering whether or not the Bible is “just another book,” then please take a few moments to listen to the entire contents of the sermon. I promise that it will leave you with much to consider!

About Elizabeth

I am a sinner, saved by grace striving to increase in the knowledge of my Savior and His precious Word each day. The reader should know that there are a few presuppositions with which I approach this blog: 1) I believe in the biblical gospel, which basically purports that all mankind is born under the curse of sin (due to the sin of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden). Therefore, man is separated from God and can have no relationship with God because He is perfectly holy, not even able to look upon sin. Unfortunately, God is also perfectly just and must not only separate Himself from sin, but must also punish it. In order to reconcile man to Himself, God, the Father, sent God, the Son, down to earth to live as a man and take our sins upon Himself on the cross. While on the cross, God, the Son, bore the full weight of the wrath of God, the Father, against our sins in order that we who believe in Him might be set free from the curse of our sin. God, the Son, Jesus Christ, died as a propitiation for our sin in order to appease God, the Father's, holy and just character, redeem us from sin, and reconcile those who believe in this gospel to God, the Father. 2) I am primarily writing to those who already believe in this biblical gospel. In other words, this blog is not focused on evangelizing the lost, but edifying believers. 3) I believe that the Christian Bible is the very word of God. Therefore, it is completely inerrant, infallible, sufficient, and authoritative in the life of a believer.

    You got it!

    I actually found out about it from one of our Youth Group kids (go figure!) and I have been really blessed by it. I pray that you will be too! 🙂
