We Cannot Know God Without the Bible
Construction Zone 1: God's Word - The Bible
Can we really get to know God without His Word?
No. God wants us to get to know Him through His Word. Romans 10:17 – So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
This Truth Makes
All around us, Creation teaches about God in a general way. Even your own conscience (your sense of right and wrong) teaches you that there is a God. But God’s Creation
and a God-given conscience are not enough to lead people to believe in Christ. People need God to reveal more specific truth.
The Bible is the specific message of Who God is. It is through the Bible that people can have faith. True faith believes that everything God says is right, and and what God says is true for all people.
Big Christian Word: Light. Christians often use the word light to refer to the amount of truth or revelation a person is given by God. In the same way a light bulb light s up a room, God lights up a person's heart and mind by revealing Himself and His truth. Isaiah 8:20 - To the Law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
