The Inspired and Infallible Word of God

Updated on June 4, 2012

The Book

Many are the times when we encounter questions from friends, workmates, acquaintances and even neighbors on the authenticity of the bible (The Book). We get tongue tied for lack of straight answers to their nagging questions. Yet we have a testimony and life experiences that qualify the Word in The Book as the inspired and infallible proof of God’s presence in our lives. Is the bible truly the word of God?


The Bible Qualifies Itself as Scripture

The bible contains enough evidence that suggests it’s having divine origin. A look at 2 Timothy 3:16 points out this fact by stating that “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” Why would the bible authenticate itself as scripture from God and suitable for doctrine and instruction in righteousness if it is not?

Jesus reveals his true identity in the synagogue as the Messiah sent by God to save the world as had been proclaimed by prophet Isaiah long before he was born as stated in Luke 4:14-21 “And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, this day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears”.

Jesus himself affirms to the Old Testament being scripture in Luke 24:25-27 “Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken. Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself”.

In 2 Peter 3:15-16, Peter proves that Paul’s epistles are scripture in the statement “And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you, As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction”.

Scriptures are Void of Error

People claim to have found contradictions in the word of God. It is clearly stated that the original writings had no error (Isaiah 27:3, Isaiah 40:8). Such claims brand God a liar while man assumes righteousness. This we know is fallacy.

The Book is Never Wrong

A look at the King James Bible reveals a collection of 66 books that make up both the Old and New Testament. The Pentateuch are the first three divisions of the Hebrew Scriptures which comprise of the first five books of the Hebrew bible contains the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy which were all written by Moses. We see Jesus validating these books in John 5: 46, 47 using the following words “For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?” The bible is a wonderful book that contains the law that governs us, history of mankind, poetry, prophecy of things to come and what transpired, and most important, it contains principles by which we live. It truly is the incorruptible living word of God. And we are the people of The Book.

    Beautiful hub. I appreciated your statement, "People claim to have found contradictions in the word of God. It is clearly stated that the original writings had no error (Isaiah 27:3, Isaiah 40:8)." The original writings are without contradiction. Unfortunately, as I've grown in the knowledge of the Word, certain translated passages appeared to contractict the whole of Bible teaching. Sure enough, I found out some verses and translations of the original language had been altered (i.e. the Textus Receptus and Codex 61 - late 15th century). I am in love with the original writings and am saddened by the confusion wrought by attempts to alter them in the last five centuries. Stay blessed.
