Why do Christians quote Scripture? Why is the Bible so important to them? Why do they think it is authoritative? Why do they seek to obey it?
Quite simply this is why, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
It is the word of God, not just the words of men written.It is what God has said to mankind from the beginning and it does not change. It is his standard of righteousness. It is how men and women, boys and girls can be saved from sin, death and hell.
It is the book about God the Son, Jesus Christ whom it glorifies from Genesis, where he is promised as the Saviour to come to destroy Satan, to Revelation where he is married to all his people, his church, to live with them forever in bliss in the New Heavens and Earth.
If you have never taken this book seriously–YOU MUST! YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY DEPENDS ON YOUR RESPONSE TO IT.
