I can list five reasons why the Bible is a textbook for the answer to the world’s ills, and a source for anyone to check out what I says. Personal study is hard work, but one can form a longing for it. It comes with practice, and the benefit is lasting. Someone quoted:
“No one comes to the father except through me” (John 14:6)
That’s in the Bible, and that’s where you find the path. By reading, and applying it you can think for yourself, and the fifth reason involves all Scripture that’s inspired by God. What are the five?
The Bible is beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining, and so that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17)
