227 Is the Whole Bible Given by Inspiration of God?

Intro

Men today think the Bible and God are one.

They believe that all the words of the Bible

were the only words God spoke,

and that they were all said by God.


Verse 1

Those who believe in God even think that

though men wrote the Old and New Testament books,

they were given by God’s inspiration

and recorded the Holy Spirit’s words.

This is faulty human understanding.

It’s not in accordance with real facts.

In fact, apart from the books of prophecy,

most of the Old Testament is past record.


Pre-chorus 1

Some New Testament epistles

come from people’s experiences;

some come from the enlightenment

given by the Holy Spirit.


Chorus

It’s a great mistake and blasphemy

that human records and epistles

are seen as the Holy Spirit’s words

spoken to the churches.


Verse 2

The Pauline epistles came from a man’s work,

from the Holy Spirit’s enlightenment.

They were all written for the churches

to exhort and encourage brothers, sisters.

These were not words from the Holy Spirit.

Paul couldn’t speak for the Holy Spirit.

He saw not John’s visions, nor was he a prophet.

The epistles were for the churches of his age.


Pre-chorus 2

His edifying, positive words

that he said to men were all right,

but they couldn’t represent God

or what the Holy Spirit uttered.


Chorus

It’s a great mistake and blasphemy

that human records and epistles

are seen as the Holy Spirit’s words

spoken to the churches, spoken to the churches.
