But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. ALL SCRIPTURE IS GIVEN BY INSPIRATION OF GOD, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Timothy 3:14-17. Have you ever tried to explain the Bible to an unbeliever and they come back at you with the words, "The Bible is just a book written by man"? Well, they're right, the Bible was, written by man. Here's the difference, the Bible WAS written by man, WHO WAS INSPIRED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, to write the words he did. And the Bible is the ONLY book Inspired by the Holy Spirit to qualify as THE WORD OF GOD. Many men have written some really great books ABOUT God, but again, only the Holy Bible is proven to be the Word OF God. Big difference. For example, I write this daily devotional called  MORNINGTIME that I hope is even somewhat inspired by the Holy Spirit ABOUT the Things of the Lord,   but it is not the inspired word OF God. The Bible is HIS WORD and man is not to add, or take away any words from it. To do so is just another bible "translation". The King James Bible has best withstood the Test of Time as far as books go. And the Bible is a Wonderful written Reference Manual, AS THE HOLY SPIRIT HELPS US UNDERSTAND HOW TO APPLY IT TO OUR EVERYDAY LIVES FROM A PRACTICAL PERSPECTIVE. He Knows the Heart OF God, and the intent of HIS WORD, and He instills it into our Heart as only the Holy Spirit can. The Bible is GOoD, BUT TO SOMEDAY SEE CHRIST FACE TO fACE will be even better. So read The Word, study Christ, allow Him to Live IN your Heart with Repentance, Forgiveness, and Salvation, Growing into CHRISTLIKENESS all the rest of your days, that you may Eternally, Be Blessed.
