The word is inspired by the word of God. The christian faith is based on the Bible. A key doctrine in Christianity is the inerrancy of scripture, meaning the Bible is original and its handwritten state is without error. The Bible itself claims to be the inspired word of God or God-breathe. 2 Tim 3:16
In old testament salvation is rooted in deliverance from sin while in the New testament, it is through Jesus
Canonization of scripture is needed because there were many books floating around in the early church and so much of people were dying for books which are not worth dying for. Canon refers to measuring rod or yardstick for true word of God. The complete Bible in 397AD i.e. 27 books of the new testament were formalized.
20 of the new testament has been generally accepted, the remaining 7 had to go through canonization. Authoritative, dynamic, generally accepted, prophetic and authentic are the yardstick used for canonization of scripture
Psalm 119:89. God’s word is settled and not evolving. Everything came into existence thru the word of God.
If you believe on the word of God then hold on to it else leave it. When we take God’s word, we need to take it in entirety and not pick and choose. God is showing his love, salvation and to make you live a holy life.
There is no middle ground, we must accept the Bible as exactly what it claims to be: God’s verbally inspired and infallible word
