2 Timothy 3:16-17 – All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
You either believe the Word of God or you don’t. If you don’t believe I pray that in time you come to see it as Truth. If you do believe you must believe all of it. “All scripture is God breathed.” You can’t just take part of it and you also need to read it in context. Too many times you see people base their life off one scripture that is taken out of context.
When we read the Word we must take it as a whole. I’ve also heard people explain away certain parts of scripture due to the fact that man had a part in translating it. That sounds reasonable enough because we all know that man can misinterpret and misread the bible, but if you do that, then when do you stop making exceptions. Pretty soon you are making up your own doctrine and that’s dangerous.
Then think about God. Do you think that God, who created the heavens and earth and all that is in them, could control what makes it into His Word? We must take all scripture as truth. Know that God put it in the Bible what He wanted in the Bible and He wants to speak to you through it.
Read the Word, pray that God speaks to you through it, and apply it into your life. Then follow this verse and use the Word to teach, to rebuke, to correct and to train in righteousness. The Bible is our tool to equip the saints to do good works.
