  • Contemporary Cultural Context for Ministry Media Resource by

    2 Timothy 3:1-7

    Across America the people of God strive to bring lost people the good news of Jesus Christ. As part of the Great Commission, this is commendable. But our attempts are often misguided as we inadvertently displace the Lord as the center of life in our drive to attract non-believers. Christ-centered preaching has been abandoned for magic formulas promising to deliver our best life now. Ordinary means of grace, like prayer and sacrament, are ignored in favor of marketing to specific audiences. Worship worthy of our majestic Creator is regularly exchanged for mere entertainment. In short, God’s glory … View Resource

  • Authority and Authorship Media Resource by

    2 Timothy 3:13-16

    Written over thousands of years by nearly forty different human authors, the Bible is a collection of sixty-six books that have been preserved down to this day. As Christians, we ought to marvel at the rich history of the Bible. But many people see those facts as evidence that testifies against the divine origin of the Bible. Are the Scriptures merely a collection of ancient writings of religious men? How much authority should we attribute to the Bible? Considering this in this message, Dr. Sproul teaches us the difference between the fallible writings of mere men and God’s infallible Word … View Resource

  • Thy Word Is Truth Media Resource by

    2 Timothy 3:13-4:4

    The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are inspired by God; that is, they are “God-breathed.” Because it is the Word of God, the Scripture is the final, inerrant, authoritative norm for faith and practice. Since the Enlightenment, however, the authority of God’s Word has come under constant attack. Sinclair Ferguson explores how Christian leaders who are followers of Jesus Christ must hold fast to the inspiration, inerrancy, and authority of God’s Word. View Resource

    If you look at the Bible as a document and consider all of its many authors, the method of transmission, and the thousands of years it took to complete the canon of Scripture, the odds seem stacked against the idea of an error-free Bible. What prevents this piece of ancient literature from being without error? What makes it so trustworthy over all other ancient documents? How can we be sure that the Bible is without error?
