The Bible

The Bible is not a “how to” book, a road map, a calendar of events, a history book, or a code of conduct.  The Bible is a Him book.  From beginning to end it is the declaration of the redemptive glory of God in Christ.  Take the preeminence of Christ out of the Bible and all you have is another book.  Use the Bible for any other reason than to declare Christ crucified and you misuse the word of God.

About Greg Coleman

I am a Particular Baptist who affirms the absolute sovereignty of the triune Godhead in all things. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in the God-man Jesus Christ. He is the Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, Disposer and Judge of all that ever was, is now or ever shall be. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and men. He was made to be sin for his people and saved them from their sins by his substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross thereby satisfying the justice and wrath of God against them. The sufficiency of his death to the satisfaction of God’s justice is proven by his physical resurrection from the dead and enthronement in glory at the right hand of the Father. Jesus Christ is coming again to judge the living and the dead. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.

    Amen! The living words of God to us, including the History, the instructions, examples, and spiritual things that are so alive we can’t even comprehend! The Bible is so much more than even this…for there are no words to completely describe all of the life stored up within.

    Said well… Amen! We must declare with Paul, “That I may know Him.” Within the very nature of the old man is the continuous effort to define and confine God to tangible-ness. We want an “Immanence” approach where He is seen and contained in creation and “in our hearts” rather than the Bible’s declaration of a transcendent God Who reaveals Himself… through His Word. I love Pastor Pruitt’s statement “It is a HIM book.” We read the Word of God to know Jesus, that God may conform us to be like Jesus. Any other approach we pursue will leave us wanting. Great word… blessings.
