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.
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.
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.
