I value scripture as a source of insight and encouragement leading to growth in character. As it is written:So for me ---you say the words written in the Bible are not God's words ----you won't be listening to scripture as it turns you off if quoted -----and yet you quote it yourself -so you are quoting what you don't pay attention nor believe in yourself which makes no sense to me at all and contradicts what you say
”All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the person of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”
I do not take scripture as the source of my salvation; understood as healing and renewal. I say this as one who has studied scripture for all of my adult life. I understand that the diverse authors of scripture were inspired by the living word of God; which was present in the beginning, is present in this moment, and will be present for all the time to come.
My faith is grounded in this biblical insight:
“...it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. This life that I live now, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave his life for me.”
