The Gospel Truth The Truth vs. The Deception

The Problem with Your Bible

Jesus is the Way, Truth, Life


The problem with your Bible might be you. Today, there are many people who have the wrong authority. They claim the Bible is their final authority. Today, there are many people who want the Bible to be the definitive testimony of Jesus. Today, there are many people who believe knowledge of the Bible gives them eternal life. Today, there are many people who think life is found in the Bible. Today, there are many people who think the Bible is the way to heaven. Today, there are many people who think God gave us a Bible canon so that we would not perish but have eternal life. Today, there are many people who think the Bible was God's final revelation to us. Today, there are many people who think the Bible is God's final Word to us. You might be one of these people and that might be the problem with your Bible.

There is nothing inherently evil about a book. The contents of the Bible are all good. Faithful men moved by the Holy Spirit, the power of the Almighty God, wrote the words in your Bible. But men have taken the writings of God's people which were otherwise good and turned them into an object for evil purposes, an object of worship, an idol to serve.

Friend, our final authority is not a book, not even a book about God and Jesus. Our final authority is the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is not a book. The Bible is not our final authority, a man raised into glory is our final authority.

Jesus did not say that whoever does not carry his Bible cannot be my disciple but whoever does not carry his cross.

The Bible is not the final revelation of God to us; Jesus is the final revelation of God to us.

The Bible does not reveal God the Father to us; Jesus reveals God to us.

The Bible cannot witness to us that we are children of God; the Spirit witnesses to us that we are children of God.

God did not call us to believe in a Bible canon; He calls us to believe in His Son.

Jesus did not want a book to be his testimony. He calls you to be his testimony.

Jesus did not want you to write up a written statement of faith; He wants you to be a statement of faith.

We are not to be conformed to the image of the Bible; we are to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ.

No knee will bow nor tongue confess that the Bible is the final authority; Your knee will bow before Jesus whom God made Lord!

The Bible is not God's final and complete Word to us; Jesus is God's final and complete Word to us.

The Word of God by which He speaks to us is not a 66 book canon stack of paper; the Word of God is Jesus Christ.

Eternal life is not found in the Bible. Eternal life is found in Jesus Christ.

Knowing the Bible does not give you eternal life. Knowing Jesus gives you eternal life.

The Bible is not the Way to the Father; Jesus is the Way to the Father.

The Bible is not God's whole revelation of Truth; Jesus is God's whole revelation of Truth.

The Bible is not our Life; Jesus is our Life.

The Bible is not alive; Jesus is alive.

The Bible is not the Resurrection and the Life; Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life.

The gift of God is not eternal life found in your Bible; the gift of God is eternal life found in Jesus Christ.

The Bible is not the Way to the Father; Jesus is the Way to the Father.

The Bible is not your Shepherd; Jesus is the Good Shepherd.

The Bible is not God's salvation; Jesus is God's salvation.

God did not give His only Book so that whosoever believes the Book will have eternal life. God gave us His only Son so that whosoever believes in HIM will have eternal life.

The Bible cannot save you; Jesus is our Saviour.

The Bible did not die for you; Jesus died for you.

God did not call us to follow the Bible; He calls us to follow His son.

The Bible is not our Teacher; the Spirit of Jesus Christ, the Spirit of Truth, is our Teacher.

The Bible requires translation; the Spirit of Truth requires no translation.

The Bible requires interpretation; the Spirit of Truth requires no interpretation.

The Bible cannot witness to you that we are a child of God: The Spirit witnesses to us that we are children of God.

The Bible does not search our hearts; the Spirit of Jesus searches our hearts.

God's will was not written by men on paper in ink but by the Spirit of the Living God on our hearts in love.

The Bible is not the Light of the world; Jesus is the Light of the world.

The Bible is not the Bread of Life; Jesus is the Bread of Life.

Jesus did not say that without the Bible you can do nothing; He said without ME you can do nothing.

Jesus cannot be found in your Bible; Jesus lives in those who love him.

It is not those who are led by their interpretations of the Bible who are sons of God; it is those who are led by the Spirit of God who are sons of God!

The Bible is not your Lord, Messiah, and Savior; Jesus is your Lord, Messiah, and Savior.

The problem with your Bible just might be you. Jesus is not just a story.

Bow down and surrender to Lord Jesus. He is alive and he truly dwells in the hearts of those who love him.
