“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16).
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching…
There are four things that God’s word is useful for. The first of which is teaching.
God’s word teaches us the truth. God’s word teaches us the truth about why we exist, who we are, who’s we are, our ultimate purpose.
You see, truth matters. Knowing the truth matters.
One of the greatest fallacies of the post-modern world is that all opinions matter.
I have heart disease. Thus far in my life, I have had a quadruple bypass surgery, have had over a dozen angioplasty and angiogram procedures, and currently sixteen stents in my heart.
When it comes to advice regarding the treatment of my heart disease, do I give same weight to the advice of some guy I come across the internet or YouTube as to the heart surgeon who has studied all his/her adult life about heart disease? It would be ludicrous to give the same weight for the opinion of some random guy or even a doctor who hasn’t specialized in heart disease as I do with the heart surgeon.
Some opinions matter absolutely more than others. Not all opinions are of the same value.
When it comes to looking at the world around us, who we are, why we are here, and what we were created for, the ultimate and the only truth for the disciple is the God-breathed scriptures. God’s word is the standard and the ruler by which we measure all things else. When we give other things the same weight as God’s word, you will be forever confused about reality and truth.
All Scripture is God-breathed and the first thing it is useful for is right teaching.
God’s word is indispensable for the follower of Christ.
