I am reading a new book this week. I love to read things that makes me rethink what I have forged in my head or is putting together some of the bizarre questions that I have often had, but refused to try to answer because I was nervous the answer.
For many Christians, the question regarding where the Bible came from is almost non-existent. But think about it! Where did this collection come? Did it just 'POOF!', here it is? Did Moses receive the 66 book collection? You may have heard of the Canon of Scripture, but what group of guys put this collection together that constituted the 'Bible'? Were these guys infallible in their decision making process? Do we have all the books necessary? A lot of these questions should keep us all humble and eager to worship the God revealed in Scriptures and not the Bible by itself? It is God's Word. But, I understand it to be the revelation of God, not God himself.
Before I create more questions, let me give you TWO STATEMENTS TO LOOK AT. Then ask you to decide which is YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF SCRIPTURE!
1. The Bible is an infallible collection of infallible books.
2. The Bible is a fallible collection of infallible books.
You may be surprised!
