Veracity of the Scriptures

DailyTheocentrism: Deut. 29:29 – the arrogant search for the things that cannot be known at the cost of the things that can.

God has even set the boundaries of the mind. Want to know the will of God? It is already revealed. To quote another, “95% in the Scriptures – get the 95% right and the 5% will be no problem.”

We’ve never been able to know anything fully, but we can know it truly.

AskRob: Question on the use of Scripture for “Life Verses”

Question:

I need to understand in detail how to use Gods word correctly for hope, strength and encouragement. I know you mentioned about how some life verses are not verses to use for life verses.

So how do we use Gods word for encouragement and hope?

I know that I have though about this question too long and I have just determined that this will be one that I will think about for years and revise my understanding of it along the way. For now, let me give you my thoughts on it.

– It is implied that since we have a book full of stuff that He wants us to use all the Book

– It has a primary purpose of revealing God to us –

– We know that knowing God correctly is the very most important thing in our lives

– There is always four contexts to every passage – thought, book/author, testament, Bible

These are just a few important thoughts that get me to this point:

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. (ESV)

16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. (ESV)
