The Bible Under Attack


The Bible in today’s time is under extreme attack. The devil knows that his time is short and he is trying to destroy as many faiths in Jesus Christ as possible, by obliterating one’s trust in Scripture. I want to share with all of you an exchange I had. Faith in Scripture is essential to our faith in Christ. Without holy Scripture, we will drift dangerously away from God’s presence.

Chas said:

If anybody’s faith is in the bible alone, then his faith is worthless. You might choose to do what you think is God’s will according to the bible, but because it is the word of men, you will be doing what men think is God’s will.

My response:

First of all, I would disagree with you wholeheartedly and I’m blown away with what you just said.

For you to say this, “If anybody’s faith is in the bible alone, then his faith is worthless.”

That statement tells me which side you’re really on without a shadow of a doubt.

The Bible is not men’s words like you wrongly said but it is the Word of Almighty God according to 1 Thess 2:13 which says, And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe.

Paul to the church in Galatia said, Galatians 1:12 I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

By you rejecting the Bible as God’s Word you are rejecting Jesus Christ. The Bible is what God said and His Word teaches us by the direction of the Holy Spirit how to do His will and how to live a life that pleases Him.

John 12:48 says, There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day.

Jesus and His Word are two sides of the same coin. His Word convicts us of sin and directs us into His righteousness.

  1. Such an awesome blog post. I liked your response to Chas’s statement saying, “The Bible is what God said and His Word teaches us by the direction of the Holy Spirit how to do His will and how to live a life that pleases Him.”

    For me, I like that it is only through the Holy Spirit that we can receive direction from God on what is His Will for our lives.

  2. In my youth, I judged God and the Bible by the words and actions of men, and rejected what I was told, and what I saw as the fruit of those teachings. I had not truly read the Bible from beginning to end. Years later, I picked it up and read it objectively for the first time, taking care to read out of it only what it says and not into it what I had been told. It was so much more than I expected, and decidedly different as well. I was still in the Book of Genesis when I realized the error in my judgment. I had come upon a complex word puzzle which I began to solve, but could not complete. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, making Jesus my only teacher, I came to realize that I had stumbled upon a hidden tutorial. I was taught how to access hidden prophecies that are then fulfilled in later books within the canon, like an answer sheet proving the deductions. I was taught concepts and principles, precept upon precept, ultimately harmonizing them all into a single unified concept. I can now see time they way in which God and His Prophets see and describe it. I know the four horsemen so well, I call them by their first names. I was given the Almanac of the Prophets: a timeline of the past, present and future. The entire saga of the Tribes of Israel is a complex, cohesive metaphor for the passage of time. Everything they did and everything that was prophesied about them becomes a perpetual pattern of behaviors for specific tribes, and they always do them in season. It tells you who will do what to whom, as well as why, how, and when… and they have been doing it repeatedly, and will continue to do so.

    God is real, his word is true, and his precept are eternal. His Word is the sharp, double-edged sword that comes from the mouth of the Rider who is called Faithful and True. It cuts both ways. It has been used for both good and evil for centuries. In the hands of a novice, it can be dangerous. In the hands of a narcissist, it is down-right deadly. Let the Master, the one who is The Word, show you the proper way to wield it.
