Is The Bible And All Scripture Inspired By God – Spiritual Reading.

The seventh thing that the Bible makes plain regarding the work of the Holy Spirit in the various writers of Scripture, is that all Scripture, that is everything contained in all the books of the Old and New Testament, is inspired of God. We are distinctly taught this in 2 Tim. 3:16, 17.

Here we read, “All Scripture (more exactly, every Scripture) is given by inspiration of God (more literally, God-breathed), and is profitable for doctrine, (or teaching), for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness (rather, instruction which is in righteousness), that the man of God may be perfect (rather, complete) thoroughly furnished(better, furnished completely) unto all good works (rather, every good work).”

An attempt has been made to obscure the full force of these words by a revised translation given in both the English Revision and American Standard Version. In this revised translation, the words are rendered as follows: “Every Scripture inspired of God is also profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness; that the man of God may be complete, furnished completely unto every good work.”

There is absolutely no warrant in the Greek text for changing “Every Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, etc.,” into “Every Scripture inspired of God is also profitable for teaching, etc.” “Every” is in the Greek. There is no “is” in the Greek. It must be supplied, as is often the case in translating from Greek into English.

“Is” must be supplied somewhere, either before “given by inspiration” (or God-breathed), or else supplied after it, in the latter case necessitating the change of “and” into “also” (a change which is possible, but very uncommon); and there is not a single instance in the New Testament outside of this in which two adjectives coupled by the simplest copulative “and (kai)” are ripped apart and the “is” placed between them and an “and” changed into “also.”

The other construction, that of the Authorised Version, is not at all uncommon. The translation of the Revisers does violence to all customary usage of the Greek language. But we do not need to dwell upon that, for, even accepting the changes given in the Revision, the thought is not essentially changed; for if Paul had said what the revisers make him say that “Every Scripture inspired of God is also profitable for teaching, etc.,” there can be no question but by “every scripture inspired of God” he referred to every Scripture contained in the Old Testament.

Here, then, taking whichever translation you will, we have the plain teaching that every Scripture of the Old Testament is “God-breathed” or “inspired of God.” Certainly if we can believe this about the Old Testament there is no difficulty in believing it about the New, and there can be no question that Paul claimed for his own teaching an equal authority with the O. T. teaching.

This we shall see clearly under the next head. And not only did Paul so claim, but the Apostle Peter also classes the teaching of Paul with the O. T. teaching as being “Scripture.” Peter says in 2 Pet. 3:15, 16, “Even as our beloved brother Paul also, according to the wisdom given unto him, wrote unto you; (16) as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, wherein are some things hard to be understood, which the ignorant and unsteadfast wrest, as they do also the other Scriptures, unto their own destruction.” Here Peter clearly speaks of Paul’s epistles as being “Scripture.”

Who Gives Prophets And Apostles The Words To Speak – Spiritual Reading.

The 6thing that the Bible makes clear as to the inspiration of the apostle and prophets is that, the Holy Spirit in the Prophets and Apostles gave not only the thought but also gave the words in which the thought was to be expressed. We find this very clearly stated in 1 Cor. 2:13: “Which things also we speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Spirit teacheth; combining spiritual things with spiritual words.” 

One of the most popular of the false theories of Inspiration in our day is that the Holy Spirit was the author of the thought, but that the Apostles were left to their own choice of words in the expression of the thought, and that therefore in studying the Bible we cannot emphasise the exact meaning of the words, but must try to find the thought of God that was back of the words, and which the writer has more or less inaccurately expressed.

There are many teachers in our theological seminaries to-day, and in our pulpits, who speak very sneeringly and superciliously of those who believe in Verbal Inspiration,—i.e., those who believe that the Holy Spirit chose the very words in which the thought he was teaching was to be expressed, but however sneeringly they may speak of those who believe in Verbal Inspiration, certainly the Bible claims that it was verbally inspired.

The passage which I have just read makes it as plain as language can possibly make it that the “words” in which the Apostle spoke were not “words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Spirit teacheth.” Now if this is not the fact, if only the thought that was given to Paul was the thought of God, and he clothed the thought in his own words, then Paul was a thoroughly deceived man on a fundamental point, in which case no dependence at all can be placed in his teachings on any point, or else he was a deliberate fraud, in which case the quicker we burn up his books the better for us and all concerned.

There is no possibility of finding any middle ground, and the attempts to find a middle ground have landed those who have tried it in all kinds of absurdities. If you have an exact and logical mind, you must take your choice between Verbal Inspiration and bald infidelity. Paul distinctly states that the words in which he conveyed to others the truth that was revealed to him were the words which the Holy Spirit taught him. 

The Holy Spirit himself has anticipated all these modern ingenious, but wholly unbiblical and utterly illogical and entirely false theories regarding his own work in the Apostles. The theory that “the concept” was inspired but the words in which the concept was expressed were not, was anticipated by the Holy Spirit Himself and exploded 1800 years before our supposedly wise 19th century theological teachers conceived it, and attempted to foist it upon an unsuspecting public.

It was exploded eighteen centuries before it was exploited. Furthermore, the theory is absurd in itself. As the only way in which thought can be conveyed from one mind to another, from one man’s mind to another man’s mind, or from the mind of God to the mind of man is by words, therefore if the words are imperfect the thought expressed in those words is necessarily imperfect.

The theory is an absurdity on its very face, and it is difficult to see how intelligent men could have ever deceived themselves into believing such a thoroughly illogical theory. If the words are not inspired the Bible is not inspired. Let us not deceive ourselves; let us face facts.

The theory is an absurdity on its very face, and it is difficult to see how intelligent men could have ever deceived themselves into believing such a thoroughly illogical theory. If the words are not inspired the Bible is not inspired. Let us not deceive ourselves; let us face facts.

Furthermore, the more carefully and minutely one studies the wording of the statements of this wonderful book—the Bible—the more he will become convinced of the marvelous accuracy of the very words used to express the thought. To a superficial thinker the doctrine of Verbal Inspiration may appear questionable or even absurd, but any regenerate and Spirit-taught man who ponders the words of the Scripture day by day, and year after year, will become thoroughly and immovably convinced that the wisdom of God is in the very words used as well as in the thought which is expressed in the words.

It is a significant and deeply impressive fact that our difficulties with the Bible rapidly disappear as we note the precise language used. The changing of a word or letter, or of a tense, case or number, would oftentimes land us in contradiction or untruth, but taking the words exactly as written, difficulties disappear and truth shines forth.

Countless times people have come to me with apparent difficulties and supposed contradictions in the Bible and asked a solution, and I have pointed them to the exact words used and the solution was found in taking the words exactly as written. It was because they changed in a slight degree the very words that God spoke that a difficulty had seemed to arise.

The Divine origin of nature shines forth more and more clearly the more closely we examine it under the microscope. As by the use of a powerful microscope we see the perfection of form and the adaptation of means to end in the minutest particles of matter, we are overwhelmingly convinced that God, a God of infinite wisdom and power, a wisdom extending down to the minutest parts of matter, is the author of the material universe: so likewise the divine origin of the Bible shines forth more and more clearly under the microscope.

The more minutely we study the Bible the more we note the perfection with which the turn of a word reveals the absolute thought of God. It was because they changed in a slight degree the very words that God spoke that a difficulty had seemed to arise. The Divine origin of nature shines forth more and more clearly the more closely we examine it under the microscope.

As by the use of a powerful microscope we see the perfection of form and the adaptation of means to end in the minutest particles of matter, we are overwhelmingly convinced that God, a God of infinite wisdom and power, a wisdom extending down to the minutest parts of matter, is the author of the material universe: so likewise the divine origin of [the Bible shines forth more and more clearly under the microscope. The more minutely we study the Bible the more we note the perfection with which the turn of a word reveals the absolute thought of God.

An important question, and a question that has puzzled many writers at this point, is: If the Holy Spirit is the author of the very words of Scripture how do we account for the variations in style and diction? How is it, for example, that Paul always used Pauline language, and John used Johannean language, and Peter used language that was characteristic of himself?

The answer to this question is very simple and is two-fold: First, even though we could not account at all for this fact, it would have little weight against the explicit statement of God’s Word with any one who is humble enough and wise enough to recognise that there are a great many things which he cannot account for at all which could be easily accounted for if he knew a little more.

It is only the man who has such amazing and stupendous conceit that he thinks he knows as much as God, in other words, that he is infinite in wisdom, who will give up an explicit statement of God’s Word simply because he sees a difficulty in the way of the acceptance of that statement, which he in his limited knowledge cannot solve. But there is a second answer, and an all-sufficient one, and that is this: these variations in style and diction are easily accounted for.

The Holy Spirit is infinitely wise. He Himself is the Creator of Man, and of man’s power of speech, and therefore he is quite wise enough and has quite enough facility in the use of language in revealing truth to and through any individual to use words, phrases and forms of expression that are in that person’s ordinary vocabulary and forms of thought, and He is also quite wise enough to make use of that person’s peculiar individuality in revealing the truth through him. It is one of the marks of the Divine wisdom of this book that the same Divine truth is expressed with absolute accuracy in such widely variant forms of expression.

The Superiority And Distinction Of Biblical Scripture – Spiritual Reading.

“Some, we are aware, would gladly persuade us that things are so totally changed since the Bible was penned, that we need other guidance than what its precious pages supply. They tell us that society is not what it was; that the human race has made progress; that there has been such a development in the powers of nature, science, and philosophy, that to maintain the sufficiency and supremacy of the Bible, at such a point in the world’s history, can only be regarded as childishness, ignorance, or imbecility.”

“Now, the men that tell us these things may be very clever and very learned; but we have no hesitation whatever in telling them that, in this matter, “They make a great mistake, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God.” We cannot listen for a moment to men, however profound in their reading and thinking, who dare to treat God’s book as though it were man’s book, and speak of those pages that were penned by the all wise, almighty, and eternal God, as though they were the production of a shallow and short-sighted mortal.”

“It is important to see clearly that men must either deny that the Bible is the Word of God, or admit its sufficiency and supremacy in all ages and in all countries — in all stages and conditions of the human race. God has written a book for man’s guidance, and we argue that the book must be amply sufficient for man, no matter when, where, or how we find him.
But, let it not be supposed that we prefer ignorance to learning.”

“Let none imagine that we despise the discoveries of science, or treat with contempt the achievements of sound philosophy. Far from it. We honor them highly in their proper sphere. We could not say how much we prize the labors of these learned men who have consecrated their energies to the work of clearing the sacred text of the various errors and corruptions that, from age to age, had crept into it, through carelessness or infirmity of copyists, taken advantage of by a crafty and malignant foe.”

“Every effort put forth to preserve, to unfold, to illustrate, and to enforce the precious truth of Scripture, we most highly esteem. On the other hand, when we find men making use of their learning, their science and their philosophy, for the purpose of undermining the sacred edifice of divine revelation, we deem it our duty to raise our voice in the clearest and strongest way against them and to solemnly warn the reader against their destructive influence.”

Excerpt From – The Bible: Its Supremacy And Sufficiency By Charles Henry Mackintosh

Bible Verse:

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.

Hebrews 4:12-13

How Should Christians And Believers Interpret Bible Scriptures – Spiritual Reading.

Biblical interpretation has become a major point of contention among many believers and christians. Different sects interpret Bible scripture differently and sometimes amidst all the religious, theological and philosophical debates and arguments, the truth can fall away.

The Jewish Rabbi will have a different take with many emphazising context ,history, language, culture and tradition.

The Catholic Priests will have their stand, advocating intense meditation, research, praying the rosary and asking mother Mary for guidance etc.

Ordinary believers will suggest believing whatever the clergy and Church leaders feed them during worship and fellowship services.

Despite all the chaos and confusion that comes with this subject, I think the answer is a simple one.

How do we interpret scripture and the Bible?

By the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said the Holy Spirit would teach us all things.

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. 

John 14:26

In fact after his resurrection, Jesus had to open the minds of his disciples so that they could finally understand the scriptures. Jesus is the author and finisher of the Bible.

Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 

Hebrews 12:2

Trying to understand the Bible without his guidance or counsel is a waste of time and most often just leads to divisions, heresies, and wrong doctrines of men as is being evidenced in our world today by the various mis-interpretations of various scriptures.

My prayer is that the Lord will open our eyes and ears so that we can be able to hear and see his Holy Spirit who will guide our hearts in all truth.

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2. through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4. perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

The Word contained in the Bible is the true Word of God that has been preserved through the ages and generations. It is powerful. It is life giving. It provides healing. It is food. It is the manual for life. More people need to spend time reading the Bible if we are to see our world change.

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:1-5
