IS GOD'S WORD TRUSTWORTHY? BY STEVE FINNELL
Is God's word trustworthy or is it filled with falsehoods and mistranslations? Jesus admonished the Sadducees for not understanding the Scriptures. (Matthew 22:29) Why would Jesus hold the Sadducees accountable for understanding the Scriptures if God's written word can not be trusted to be accurate?
Men believe that God created the heavens and the earth, however, they do not believe God is smart enough to give men a Bible that is without errors.
Believers in Christ agree the God parted the Red Sea so the Israelites could flee to safety, however, many proclaim God cannot preserve the Scriptures without errors.
Those who believe in God admit that He destroyed the world by a great floods, saving only Noah and the inhabitants of the ark, however, they deny that God has the power to insure that the Bible has been translated infallibly.
Christians believe that Jesus was resurrected from the dead by the power of God, however, they doubt that God can give us a Bible that is trustworthy, without error, the truth and nothing but the truth.
How ironic, that the same people the claim that the Bible has been mistranslated, not trustworthy or needs additional revelation to be completed; but put their complete trust in Bible commentaries, creed books, catechisms, statements of faith, books about the Bible, and so-called books of new revelations from God.
HOW COULD IT BE POSSIBLE FOR A GOD WHO IS OMNIPOTENT, OMNISCIENT, AND OMNIPRESENT TO BE UNABLE TO GIVE US AN INERRANT BIBLE?
