Inspiration and Revelation
What is the point of all this? The point is that Godís word is completely reliable and worthy of our efforts to know it better and to apply its teachings. What is true and right has already been settled, not by the mind of man but of God. Every single one of us is headed for eternity, and the Scriptures of God are the only guide available that will lead us to eternal victory, and they do so by leading us to Godís Son. We should not and cannot easily cast Godís book aside and assume that everything will work out all right anyway. The words of Scripture are inspired, or breathed, of God. His word is our hope.
