2 [By Ron Halbrook, adapted from Evidences for God and His Creation]

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

4 4

5 5 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that 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.

6 6

7 7 1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

8 8

9 9 18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

10 10

11 11 24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

12 12

13 13 1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

14 14 15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

15 15

16 16

17 17 15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

18 18

19 19 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

20 20 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

21 21 1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

22 22

23 23 7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

24 Introduction 3. God inspired & preserved Scripture to reveal Himself fully False theories VS true inspiration of God God protects & preserves His inspired Word 24

25 I. False Theories VS True Inspiration of God A. “Natural Inspiration,” A False Theory Talented thinkers & writers are said to be “inspired” & “inspiring”—natural talent 25

26 I. False Theories VS True Inspiration of God A. “Natural Inspiration,” A False Theory Poets  William Shakespeare ( ): Bard of Avon wrote Merchant of Venice, Hamlet, Macbeth  John Milton ( ): Paradise Lost  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ( ): Paul Revere’s Ride, The Song of Hiawatha, Evangeline 26

27 27 9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

28 I. False Theories VS True Inspiration of God B. “Thought Inspiration,” A False Theory Noematical (Greek noema: thought, a thought) inspiration God gave an idea, man developed it & chose words to express it as best he could Allows error in memory, concept, & word choice Claim errors in history, geography, science, etc. 28

30 30 9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. 160 Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

31 31

32 32 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

33 I. False Theories VS True Inspiration of God C. “Mechanical Inspiration,” A False Theory Verbal dictation: God dictated every word to each writer Theory eliminates writer’s style, vocabulary, etc.  David: sweet psalmist of Israel  Luke: physician  Paul: educated in Jewish & Greek cultures  John: his style & themes in Jn., 1-3 Jn., & Rev. 33

36 36 1 Now these be the last words of David. David the son of Jesse said, and the man who was raised up on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel, said, 2 The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and his word was in my tongue.

37 37

38 38 9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

39 39 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

41 41 7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

42 42

43 43 8 But 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. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

44 44 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

45 45 3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
