IS THE BIBLE UNCLEAR?  by steve finnell

Is the Bible unclear to you when you attempt to understand the terms for pardon, the history of God and how to live the Christian life? Would that be self imposed confusion?

What might the reasons the Bible is unclear to you?

1. Hebrews 5:8-14..... is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing....(NASB)

Is the Bible unclear because of being spiritually hard of hearing?

2. 2 Peter 3:15-16 ....some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.(NASB)

Is the Bible unclear because so many receive their instructions from the untaught and unstable?

3. Colossians accordance with the commandments and teaching of men?

Is the Bible unclear to you because you are submitting to the commandments of Men?

4. Titus 1:10-16.....14......not paying attention to Jewish myths and commandments of men who turn away from the truth.....(NASB)

Is the Bible unclear because men trust myths and commandments of men more than Scripture?

5. 2 Timothy 4:3-4 ...will not endure sound doctrine; wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance with their own desires,4....(NASB)

Is the Bible unclear to some because they do not like God's view?

6. 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12......10....because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false...

Is the Bible unclear because many reject the truth, and God sends them a deluding influence?

7. Romans 1:18-32....28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind...(NASB)

Is the Bible unclear because men reject God and then their depraved mind is activated.

8. Ephesians 4:17-18....18 being darkened in their understanding , being excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart.

The Bible may be unclear to you because a your hard heart.

9. Mark 7:1-8....8 Neglecting the commandments of God, you hold to the traditions of men.(NASB)

The Bible unclear to men because they reject God's commandments found in the Bible and follow man-made creed books, books about the Bible, Bible commentaries, church leaders opinions, their own desires and books of so-called new revelation.

God's commandments are found in the Bible alone. Man-made tradition is found everywhere else.
