DANIEL WEBSTER SAID
I believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the will and word of God. I believe Jesus Christ to be the Son of God. The miracles He wrought establish in my mind His personal authority and render it proper for me to believe whatever He asserts. I believe therefore, all of His declarations, as well as when He declares Himself the Son of God, as when He declares any other proposition. And I believe there is no other way of salvation than through the merits of His atonement.
GOD’S WORD IS THE LAST WORD
Decisions in the U.S. Supreme Court are rendered on Monday mornings. The bailiff calls for order and the decisions are read. All anyone can do is listen. There is no appeal. No one is allowed to say anything. How much more so concerning God’s pronouncements, in His Word. Habakkuk 2:20 says, “The Lord is in His Holy Temple, let all the earth keep silence before Him.” You had better listen to God! In Romans 3:19 it says that the Law was given “that every mouth may be stopped.” While it is sad that the ungodly heed not His pronouncements, it is even more tragic that many Christians go on day after day ignoring His Word, even disobeying it.
ONE WAY TO DISCERN ERROR
“Error often comes in the garb of truth. It is not always easy to distinguish truth from falsehood. How shall we in this day of deception, cults and confusion of tongues be able to distinguish them from the truth of God? Some false teachers sound sincere and genuine, even when dispensing their soul-damning error. How shall we discern? There is only one infallible test - the Bible! The greatest need of the average Christian today is intensive Bible study.” -Dr. M.R. DeHaan “Study to shew thyself approved unto God... rightly dividing the Word of truth.”
THINK ABOUT THIS
“And when he had called the people unto him, with his disciples also, he saith unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s the same shall save it. For what shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” ~Mark 8:34-38.
