Is The Bible The Word of God or the Word of Men?

83 4

"All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness," (2Tim. 3:16)

Everyone has a name, even God. " I am Jehovah, that is my name." (Isa. 43:11)  "For this is what Jehovah says, The Creator of the heavens, the true God, The One who formed the earth, its Maker who firmly established it, Who did not create it simply for nothing, but formed it to be inhabited: "I am Jehovah, and there is no one else." (Isa. 45:18) It was King David who wrote, "May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth." (Ps. 83:18)

So, why not listen to what He has to say to us regarding issues that concern all of us on a daily basis... issues like how to find happiness in a world full of turmoil and grief? In a world filled with people that seek only to divide us over so many issues, "If possible, as far as it depends on you, be peaceable with all men." (Rom. 12:18) Good advice for the human race.

"Happy are the mild-tempered, since they will inherit the earth." (Matt. 5:5) "Taste and see that Jehovah is good; Happy is the man who takes refuge in him." (Ps. 34:8)

How can we, as individuals, deal with so much anger in the world? "A mild answer turns away rage, But a harsh word stirs up anger." (Prov. 15:1) "But now you must put them all away from you: wrath, anger, badness, abusive speech, and obscene talk out of your mouth." (Col. 3:8) "But become kind to one another, tenderly compassionate, freely forgiving one another just as God, also by Christ freely forgave you."

So, what is the Bible's advice on how we can interact with each other? "Put away from yourselves every kind of malicious bitterness, anger, wrath, screaming, and abusive speech, as well as everything injurious." (Eph. 4:31) That's a start, isn"t it? Good advice.

When we try to act accordingly, this Scripture comes to mind: "Sym'e-on has related thoroughly how God for the first time turned his attention to the nations to take out of them a people for his name." (Acts 15:14)

Then it seems that the Bible is confident that it is possible that people from every nation will try to be peaceable among themselves as a testimony to him.

 With statements like the above, the Bible shows that it is relevant today.

    I know the author personally .. . According to the book of John . . . In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word WAS God. Verse 14 says, "The Word became flesh and dwelt among us." The Word is Jesus.
