The Bible Tells Me So
By Peter Enns
Editor's note: This talk is a bit of a "meaty" and perhaps a controversial subject. I hope it will not stumble anyone's faith, and it should not be taken as an attempt to discredit the Bible but rather a way to put it into perspective.
To paraphrase a quote... "The bible is not simply God speaking to us, but rather God's peoples story about the Creator"! This helped me understand where he is coming from. In fact, if you look at the Bible in that way it will help put to rest some of the Bible critics who try to debunk the bible because it's inconsistencies.
Having said that I also want to add that God can and does use anything to speak to you - He takes us where we are at and know what we need and can take.
In my formative years as a young Christian I memorized a lot of Bible verses, and time and again the Lord brought passages to my remembrance in order to guide me in my walk with Him.
