GOD'S HISTORICAL ACCOUNT by steve finnell
There is only one trustworthy account of the history of God and that is the sixty six books of the Bible.
All the extra-Biblical historical accounts do not confirm the accuracy of the Bible. The Bible confirms that the extra-Biblical account are true only if they in fact parrot the Bible.
2 Timothy 15-17 and from childhood you have know the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (NKJV)
Where are the extra-Biblical historical writings that are inspired by God. Does anyone believe that historical writings outside of the Bible are totally trustworthy?
Are all church catechisms, creed books, statements of faith, and other extra-Biblical writings given by inspiration of God? Are they equal to God's accounts of Himself found in the Bible?
Why would denominations need creed books written by men as a guide or the final authority for faith and practice? Unless they are they exact copies of the Bible they are adding to or taking away from God's personal account of the history of Himself.
Creed books are written in order to promote man-made doctrine.
God has His account of His history written in the Bible. God does need extra-Bible writings to validate the Bible.
You can put your trust in God's Bible or you can trust books written by men.
Adam and Eve were the first to put their trust in someone other than God. They trusted Satan.
