The Holy Bible Truth. Wisdom. Hope

Psalm 119:89 (KJV)

For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
This book reveals the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable.

Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword, and the Christian’s charter.

Here paradise is restored, heaven opened, and the gates of hell disclosed. Christ is its grand object, our good is its design, and the glory of God its end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet.

Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure. It is given you in life, will be opened in the judgment, and will be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labor, and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents.

  1. Another connecting Bible reference I think that would be good to add is John 16:12-15: “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now…the Spirit of truth…will guide you into all truth”

    Which is the time Jesus told his first century followers that there were greater truths and revelations that they could not handle at the time because of their limited perspective.

    To declare the Bible as final is to declare that God has no power to continue revealing Himself to us through the Holy Spirit (which He explicitly said He would do), and is to patently endorse things the Bible does not explicitly forbid. The big one that comes to mind here is slavery. If the Bible is final, then slavery is A-OK was far as God is concerned, because Jesus never said we couldn’t keep hundreds of humans in chains against their will.

    We know this simply cannot be true. It sounds ridiculous because it is ridiculous. Please try rethink your fundamentalism and understand that God is so much more than the petty monster in a box that you’ve made Him out to be.

    • I know that this comment will never make it through moderation, but to whomever reads this, please do try to reconsider your beliefs. God is love.

      • Yes, God is love. He is also merciful, but on the other hand He is also Just, Holy, and cannot tolerate sin. If we reject His love and mercy then He has no choice except his Justice and Holiness. It’s our choice, really, not His. One of the greatest deceptions of our time is squelching all of God’s attributes except His love.

    • John 16… could easily refer to the guidance he gave to those who wrote the NT. That would have included Luke writing Acts, and Paul writing over a third of the NT. The Holy Spirit gives us guidance in interpreting the principles of Scripture to everyday life. The Bible is like the constitution, which is settled. The Holy Spirit is the Supreme Court, if you wish. As far as slavery goes, the early church used the principles of Christ and the apostles which gradually led them away from slavery. The OT regulations for slavery were intended to make life more bearable rather than less so. Better to be a Hebrew slave than a slave anywhere else. It was more like being an indentured servant. Two corrections. I am not a Fundamentalist, and God is NOT a petty monster. Put aside your preconcieved notions and read the New Testament for yourself, especially the Gospels and let God show you truth.
