Ps 119:140; Pr 30:5; Ps 19:7-9
The Word of God is pure; itís perfect.

Deut 32:4; Is 25:1
God is faithful, and His way is perfect.

Ps 12:6; Ps 18:30
The Word of God has stood the test of time. It has been tested and tried.

1 Pet 1:23-25
Men have come and gone; nations have fallen, but we still have the Word of God.

The Word of God has been tested since the very beginning. Does God really mean what He says? Satan tempted Eve asking, ďIndeed, has God said, ĎYou shall not eat from any tree of the garden?íĒ (Gen 3:1). Jesus, Godís Son, was also tempted as to the integrity of Godís Word (Matthew 3:16-17; 4:1-4). This has always been the question posed to mankind: Is Godís Word really true?

2 Timothy 3:16
The Scriptures, the Bible, contain Godís Word. They are inspired by God. They are ďGod-breathed.Ē

2 Peter 1:20-21
It is Godís Word, not the words of men. It was not an act of human will. Men moved by the holy spirit spoke from God. There are many writers, but only one author.

Galatians 1: 11-12
The gospel Paul preached was not according to man. It came through a revelation of Jesus Christ. The Bible is not like any other literature written by men. We can question menís words. We can choose to disagree with writings and opinions of men; however, the Bible is right every time.

Job 23:12; Ps 119:162; Ps 19:10
It should be highly treasured.

1 Thes 2:13
The Word of God effectually works in those who believe.

Heb 4:12
The Word of God is living and powerful.

Jo 5:39; Acts 17:11
Search the Scriptures.

2 Timothy 2:15
Study, be diligent, to show yourself approved of God.
