Our Solid Foundation
This is the first statement in the Liberty Family Church Core Beliefs:
"The Bible is God’s written Word to mankind. The Divine inspiration of the original accepted canon of scripture gives it sole and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct."
I encourage you to stop and consider carefully that statement. It is foundational to our faith and to all the other statements that describe the principal matters of what we believe. Because it is in written form, the Bible has been able to withstand centuries of challenge and multiple translations. We delight in personal revelation, to bring clarity around passages of Scripture. Divine revelation will always correspond to the Word of God, however, it will never contradict it.
When you consider the Bible as the Word of God, as the very words that God is saying to us, then it must be taken seriously. If you think about some important person in your life - parent, boss, mentor, teacher, coach etc, their words have weight because that person is important in your life. How much more so, the words of God?
May I encourage you in 2020, to make the Word of God a priority? If it is important enough, you will find a way. Read it; meditate on it; apply it in your life.
