The Inspiration of the Bible
Those who wrote down the scriptures claimed to be inspired of God in doing so. Inspiration does not refer to a vague leading but a specific guidance of the Holy Spirit in choosing the words which would perfectly communicate the mind and will of God to man. The bible is not merely a holy and divine book - it is the very Word of God. In part one of a series about the bible, we look at the bible's claim of inspiration. What does it mean? Why should we believe that claim? What difference does it make? We address those questions in this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak.
Millions of people describe themselves as followers of Jesus but do not have any affiliation or participation with a local congregation of the Lord's church. On the other extreme, others believe that having their name on a church roll or periodically frequenting worship assemblies, identifies them with Christ and thus, numbers them among the saved. Both views are a misunderstanding of the church and the Christian's relationship with the body. In this broadcast of 'Let the Bible Speak', we see what it means to be added to the church by Christ and why the Christian's participation in its collective work and mission is necessary to spiritual life.
