Looking for some inspirational Bible verses? “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.” – Proverbs 30:5.
Ever since Eve encountered Satan’s barrage of doubt and denial (Genesis 3:1-7), mankind has continued to question God’s Word. Unfortunately, Eve had little or no help in sorting through her intellectual obstacles to full faith in God’s self-disclosure (Genesis 2:16,17).
Now the Scripture certainly has more than enough content to be interrogated, considering that it’s comprised of 66 books, 1,189 chapters, 31,173 verses, and 774, 746 words. When you open your English translation to read or study, you might have asked in the past or are currently asking, “How can I be sure this is the pure and true Word of God?”
A question of this kind is not altogether bad, especially when one seeks to learn with a teachable mind (Acts 17:11).
In Scripture, the person of God and the Word of God are everywhere interrelated, so much so that whatever is true about the character of God is true about the nature of God’s Word. God is true, impeccable, and reliable; therefore, so is His Word. What a person thinks about God’s Word, in reality, reflects what a person thinks about God.
The revelation of God was captured in the writings of Scripture by means of “inspiration.” This has more to do with the process by which God revealed Himself than the fact of His self-revelation. “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God…” (2 Timothy 3:16) makes the claim. Peter explains the process, “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” (2 Peter 1:20,21) (The MacArthur Bible Handbook by John MacArthur xvii, xviii, xix)
