Inspiration of The Scriptures
By: Dr. Millard B. Box
The Bible—God’s Holy Word, Scripture—is the very keel of the ship of Christianity. If the waves of worldliness engulf it, then there is no hope. God’s Word is the Keystone in the arch of Truth. If modern doubt is able to destroy that Keystone, then there is no place for the door of salvation. God’s Word is the foundation of Faith. If we do not build on that, then the tides of higher criticism, so-called, will sweep away our house of Faith.
This work examines the three attitudes toward the Word of God: 1) the Bible contains a record of the history and religious thoughts of men; it consists simply of the conclusions and opinions that men have formulated as a result of life and experience; 2) the Bible contains some of the revealed truth of God, but many other things in the Bible are the result of human error and ignorance; 3) the Bible, in its entirety, word for word, as written in the original manuscripts and insofar as faithfully preserved and translated, is the complete, inerrant, and exclusive revelation of God to man.
