“What We Believe – Part 2:
The Authority of Scripture”
Peter is telling us how trustworthy, accurate and authoritative Scripture is, but the Bible gives us many more insights about its own authority.
The Authority of Scripture

  1. It is God’s written word; God’s commands we are to obey. (Psalm 19:7-11)
  2. It is inspired by the Holy Spirit. (John 14:26)
  3. It is the unerring witness to Jesus Christ, the living word. (John 17:7)
  4. It is the trustworthy record of God’s revelation, completely true. (John 14:16-17)
  5. It has been preserved and proves itself in human exposure.
  6. Human authors moved by God in common languages. (Romans 15:4)
  7. Illuminated by the Holy Spirit’s work and God’s teachings. (Romans 15:13)
