Personal note: My own personal feelings about Scripture is as follows: The books are Love Letters to His children and an instruction manual on how to live a happy, joyous, healthy, and prosperous life, both now and for all eternity.
George Washington said, “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without (god) and the bible.
Napoleon said “The Bible is no mere book, but a living creature with a power that conquers all that oppose it.
Horace Greely said, “It is impossible to enslave mentally or socially a bible-reading people. The principles of the bible are the groundwork of human freedom.”
Andrew Jackson said, “That book, sir, is the rock on which our republic rests.”
Here is what Scripture says about itself:
John 17:17 Set them apart in Your truth – Your Word is truth.”
We are set apart by the power of His Word. It is truth. We either believe and live by the words of our Savior or we don’t.
Hebrews 6:18 so that by two unchangeable matters in which it is impossible for Elohim to lie, we might have strong encouragement, we who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the expectation set before us.
Hebrews 6:19 which we have as an anchor of the life, both safe and firm, and entering into that within the veil.
Hebrews 6:20 where Yahshua has entered as a forerunner for us, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. Our Creator keeps His own laws. His own nature and character are perfect and cannot be altered.
John 8:32 and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
