Do you believe Bible is inspired?

By Todd Barrier

This past week we began looking at some of the fundamentals of Christianity. We are doing this to help our faith grow as we face challenges in the coming year. A strong foundation is helpful in withstanding life’s storms.

We began by looking at the basic building block: belief in the deity of Christ. We build on that this week by looking at our next fundamental: belief in the inspiration of the Bible.

To be able to base your whole worldview on the Bible, you have to believe it came from God – not just that it was written by godly people but that it was God-breathed! Many people believe the Bible is a great read, but to live your life by it, you must go deeper than that.

The words of the Bible teach us to trust that it is from God.

In 2 Timothy 3:16-17, we are told all scripture is given by inspiration of God. In 2 Peter 1:20-21 we are told no scripture is of any private interpretation but that these words were written as the writers were moved by the Holy Spirit.

The book we say we believe tells us its words came from God. So, belief that the Bible is inspired is a basic fundamental of Christianity.

Next week we will look at “recognition of the authority of scripture” as a basic building block.
