Barclay is thoroughly evangelical, and manages to read his entire theology into every word. I gamely tried to say that sometimes words were just words. A word like ‘Believe’ has to be read in terms of the whole canon of evangelical thought on what constitutes right and salvific Belief. This just doesn’t seem a sane approach to me. Now, sure, John had something in mind when he wrote those words. But what he had in mind was some underlying idea that he chose the word Belief to help communicate, not a definition of Belief. To ask what ‘Belief’ means in that verse is to allow the tail to wag the dog. He used ‘belief’ for the same reason we all use words: to express part of our intended meaning.

Every year there is a significant find that is tied to recorded events that are written down in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. Archaeology supports what the Bible records and more archaeological treasures seem to arrive every year now. These finds are not surprising to Christians but for those who don’t believe the Bible, it is indisputable evidence that the Bible is true and Word of God is certain. In this, there can be no doubt. I would trust God’s Word over any human documentary since they have an agenda and so they maybe did leave it open because they can’t believe in the supernatural because then they would have to admit that they are sinners in need of a Savior. I believe what the Bible says because God can not lie. Reply.

Obviously, the only perfect model of parenting is God the Father, and therefore, as we look at him and his Word, we can discern principles about raising godly children. For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones. Foolishness in the Bible refers to disobedience to God and his Word. Psalm 14:1 says, The fool says in his heart there is no God.

A key verse for understanding the Gospel of John is found at the end of the book: But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name (John 20:31). a. The Gospel of John has even helped scholarly skeptics to believe. The oldest surviving fragment of the New Testament is a portion of John 18, found in Egypt and dating well before . 150 indicating wide circulation by that early date. Dods, Morris, Barclay, Bruce, and others). iii. Therefore in this opening John said to both Jews and Greeks: For centuries you’ve been talking, thinking, and writing about the Word (the logos). Now I will tell you who He is.

What gives us the right to make moral judgments about someone else? Isn’t that God’s job? However, when we take a closer look at the context of Matthew 7 and the teachings of the rest of Scripture, it is clear that this verse cannot be used to substantiate unrestrained moral freedom, autonomy, and independence. This was not Jesus’ intent. Jesus emphatically says this must change, so he gives two commands: Stop judging others in a hypocritical fashion, and get the sin out of your own life.

The Bible itself is neither wholly positive nor entirely negative about religion. After all, at the most basic level, a religion is a set of deeply held personal or institutional beliefs or principles. There’s nothing wrong with that, in and of itself. In fact, by that definition, every human being on earth is deeply religious. But the issue is not whether we have deeply held beliefs and practices-the issue is to whom those beliefs are devoted. To better understand this, let’s turn to the book of Romans in the Bible.

The Bible is no ordinary book; it is the unfolding revelation of almighty God. In it He demonstrates His love and concern for us by bestowing amazing promises and fulfilling them. The Bible is where we can find help for every circumstance of life. After His resurrection, Christ ascended to heaven where He is seated at the Father’s right hand interceding for us. Reveals where God the Father is. He is still seated on His throne in heaven, actively reigning over the affairs of mankind. If knowing where to look in Scripture is the problem, what steps can you take to become more familiar with the Bible? Think back to the last time you found comfort or guidance in God’s Word.
