The Word of God

The silent influence of a Christian character will fall upon men like a sunbeam. May God help you to do right because it is right.

 The Bible is a progressive book; the communication of intelligence grows with the opening of God’s Word to the understanding.  {1888 259.1}

The Bible presents beautiful truths that all may understand, and at the same time it deals in deep mysteries and doctrines which will require deep thought to understand. But nothing is to be misinterpreted, misapplied, or weakened as lightly inspired if inspired at all. God does nothing by halves. His Word is inspired.And God designs that men shall take the Scriptures as His inspired Word, and any man that shall venture to distinguish between the portions of God’s Word, exalting one and belittling another, and taking away from another, places himself in a dangerous position.  {1888 259.2}

Importance of God’s Word

My cry has been: Investigate the Scriptures for yourselves, and know for yourselves what saith the Lord. No man is to be authority for us. If he has received his light from the Bible so may we also to the same source for light and proof to substantiate the doctrines which we believe. The Scriptures teach that we should give a reason of the hope that is within us with meekness and fear.  {1888 188.1}

The Bible, the Bible alone, laid up in the heart and blessed by the Spirit of God, can make man right and keep him right.

. . .  unless the Spirit of God shall have a controlling power, conscience will be warped. The heart, the fountain of the issues of life, is kept only when the word of God is brought into the soul, and rules there.
