Why did God give us the Bible?

Share |

God has given us the Holy Bible to teach us how we can be eternally blessed or how we can be saved.

For this reason God wants us:
  1. To diligently read and study it.
  2. To believe it in our heart.
  3. To live according to it.
  4. To make it known to others.

2 Tim. 3:15: From a child thou hast known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

John 20:31: These are written that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing ye might have life through His name.

2 Tim. 3:16,17: All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Ps. 119:105: Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.
Luke 11:28: Blessed are they that hear the Word of God and keep it.

Mark 16:15: Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature.

The Holy Bible is for the Christian Church the highest authority and the only rule in matters of Christian doctrine and life.

1 Cor. 4:6: (Do not go) beyond that which is written.

Gal. 1:8: Though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
