Why Go Back to the Bible?

The question “Why Go Back to the Bible” needs to be answered. The Bible is our authority in religion. Jesus said “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8: 32. Jesus further tells us that we must worship God in spirit and in truth. John 4: 24. One can now ask the question “What is truth?” Jesus tells us that God’s Word is truth. John 17: 17. Read the whole chapter. Add these scriptures to your study: John 14: 23-24, Hebrews 1:1-2, John 3:35, Matthew 28:18, John 17:2, Ephesians 1:20-23, John 12:48, John 6:68. In closing ll Timothy 3: 16-17 states the following: “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” Back to the Bible! No other book is needed.

Back to the Bible

This thought is a novel approach to obtaining God’s salvation. Go back to the Bible, the Word of God, and throw out all teachings of men. After all, God created us, and it is God’s plan that will save us, not man’s plan. Salvation cannot be obtained by obeying the teachings of men. I say again, go back to the Bible, the Word of God. Throw out all teachings of men. Matthew 15: 7 – 9: “Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”
