It is my singular desire to bring glory to God through the clear dissemination of His Word. The following statements are given to make lucid the intent of this blog:
1. Our basic premise is that the Holy Scripture (the 66 books commonly known as The Bible) is the infallible and inerrant Word of God. In all matters of discussion, the Bible will have the last word on any matter of discussion.
2. My opinion is worth little, God's Word is priceless and its nature is both authoritative and absolute.
3. While God has used many writers over hundreds of years to write the Bible, God - and God alone - is the only Author. The Bible is the very exhaled breath of God on written page (II Timothy 3:16).
4. According to II Peter 1:20-21, there is no room for interpretations of the Bible made by men. Holy men of God were moved by the Holy Spirit of God to write down God's interpretation. This is why it is said, "Let Scripture interpret Scripture." While men may receive many illuminations concerning the Holy Scripture, there is but one, true interpretation of Holy Writ - that is the Biblical interpretation.
5. Given the truth of my 4th statement, this is the reason why we are commanded by God (II Timothy 2:15) to be good students of the Bible. We are commanded to study His Word in order to know how to rightly divide His Word. By the Holy Spirit's leading, we will through diligent study come to know the mind of God. And in knowing the mind of God, we will come to know Him - in all His holiness, love and glory!
