"If Christians abandon the doctrine of biblical inerrancy, then having a standard of truth by which all humans are to live their lives would be impossible. Like the son who obeys his father insofar as he agrees with the father’s rules, a Christian would have his own standard of authority because the Bible would be authoritative only when he judged it to be a reliable guide. Simply put, Scripture cannot be demonstrated to be divinely authoritative if the Bible (again, in its original autographs) contained factual errors." - Miller, Lyons
I know that as humans, we like to pick and choose what we really like from the Bible. I am completely guilty. I take one verse and make it justify my sins, arguing that God says its okay. But the Word is God and the God is Word. Everything spoken is from Him and there is no error. It is perfect. If we argue that some parts are wrong or outdated, then the gates are flung open for what’s “right” and “wrong”. What would stop man from saying that this part of the Word is good but this part, I don’t really like so I’m going to say it is of error. God and His Word never went out of style, it’s not old-fashioned. It’s perfect and it’s what we need to live by. ”All scripture is God-breathed” 2 Tim. 3:16 It tells us all we need to know.
I Will Sing of Your Love Forever
Freely you gave it all for us
Surrendered your life upon that cross
Great is the love, poured out for all
This is our God
Lifted on high from death to life
Forever our God is glorified
Servant and king
Rescued the world
This is our God
I use to hold the time of praise in disdain. I can’t hit a note, let alone hear it. When the praise band would repeat the bridge or chorus, I’d mock the unnecessary repetitions. When I served as a praise leader, I did it for the recognition, never having fully comprehended what each song means. I cannot help but to lift my hands until it feels like they will fall off my shoulders. Not only because He deserves my praise, but my heart cannot help but to sing constant praise. I tasted His freedom and its hard to keep my off-key mouth shut. Praise is beautiful time to lift up prayers set to melody. And each word I utter, I only do so because it is so real. I will forever glorify, forever live. He is joy. Cannot wait to be in Heaven where all we do is sing about His majesty.
