      All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

I absolutely love this, and Paul wasn’t joking one bit when he said “All Scripture,” and the key word is “ALL.” What does this mean? All of it, the bible is God-breathed and is useful even to this day. The other day I was reading about someone who was trying to say the bible didn’t apply to today’s society.   Really, if there was ever a time that this world and culture of ours needs scripture, needs God, the time is now.

The bible has been tested through the ages and time and time again its been proven correct. People have tried to prove it wrong, but in the end the bible always wins out. It has been falsely accused and banned in some country’s and still its the most sought out book in history. It always prevails and it always trumps anything humanity could come up with on the way we are supposed to live.

I have found that people don’t want to accept the truths of scripture because they don’t want to admit they need help. They don’t want to admit that the way their living is wrong and then scream the bible and the church are wrong. I see it all the time, people need the hand of God in their lives, but refuse anything He has to offer, because they “know better.” I was talking to a guy the other day and he was trying to tell me that living an adulterers life was OK, that “everyone does it.” Really? Well I’m here to tell yo that not everyone does it that’s for sure.

Scripture was given to us by God so we can learn about His awesomeness and His love for us. It teaches us how to get along with God, and with other people. It is the foundation for life and the undisputed word of God. The biggest problem with society today is “Political Correctness,” saying things that make people feel good. Well I’m not a politician so I refuse to be political correct. Last night I  was having coffee with a friend whose a teacher for second and third graders, and she was telling me that they can’t tell the students they got an “F” because it hurts the students feelings! This is why young people don’t stand a chance these days because their feelings get hurt if they get a bad grade.

When I was growing up we had to work for our grades, and if we didn’t work for our grades then we failed, end of story. This society we live in is so worried about hurting people’s feelings that just saying “Hi” to someone could get us locked up. Let me fill you in on a little secret, if your feelings get hurt by something I said, good!! Take it up with God because that’s were the problem lye’s, not being right with Him, and the majority of society isn’t right with Him, so there little feelings will get hurt.

Scripture is the only thing, the only way to truly know God. Its meant for loving us and teaching us and rebuking us, and this is exactly what this society of ours needs today.

Thanks for reading!! be blessed!!!!

  1. Hi Scott, so very True as you shared, to say we don’t need the Scriptures is foolishness but we do need Spiritual eyes to understand them, in other words God’s wisdom, empowered by The Holy Spirit as Jesus The Living Word our only Teacher leads us into all Truth and yes He confirms it by the inspired written word and He will also show us when man is in error.

    Having been in a Ministry with XCult members who when they were part of the Cults believed they alone had all the Truth and this seemed genuine because they majored on the Bible but sadly only as they were lead to understand it so Truth gets twisted and added to and parts are left out and even when they leave the Cults they often take time to let go of it’s teachings and so error can be passed on.

    We don’t Trust man’s interpretation of the Scriptures regardless of their degrees and credentials we are to Test the spirit of those who teach us by God’s Truth not our own agenda or by man’s fleshy understanding.

    To know the Truth, Jesus said we have to know Him in our heart not just our head…John 5:39-40 & 1Corinthians 2: 2-3 & 9-16

    1John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is Truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him.

    Colossians 2 :2 -3 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in Love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

    1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is True, and we are in Him that is True, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the True God, and eternal life.

    John 15:14-15 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.(KJV)

    Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops (KJV)

    Psalm 32:8
    I will instruct you and teach you in the way you shall go.
    I will guide you with Mine eye.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne.
