Reflections Along the Jesus Way
May 28, 2023 – Quote for the Day:
“The Bible, some say, is the Word of God. That is a false supposition, according to the Bible. Jesus is the Word of God (John 1:1-14). Jesus is the Word of God. He alone occupies the throne of authority. He does not share that throne with a book.
Bible publishers have long titled the Bible as ‘holy.’ God alone is holy. God alone is infallible and inerrant. Humans are created, mortal and less than perfect – all that we touch and produce falls short of perfection and holiness.
Humans have determined the Bible to be holy, infallible and inerrant. Neither God nor the Bible makes any such claim… The entire Bible is relevant and significant as it is read and understood through a Christ-centered filter… many read the Bible in order to discover what they already believe to be true and reinforce their religious faith. In so doing, they abuse the Bible to serve their own interests.”
