Statement of faith - confidence in the
I accept the Scriptures the way they have come to us - as the Word of God. In looking closely, I have found them to be consistent and reliable. We can understand them by studying the context and related Bible passages. Furthermore, I hold that the same Holy Spirit who inspired them has protected their messages through the centuries, and indeed will help us understand them. I accept that they were given for doctrine as Paul wrote to Timothy. I also believe that they are totally adequate as a guide to belief and practice.
I encourage you to take your own Bible and read for yourself. Also, I'm not a prophet so when I say something you have reason to question, be like the Bereans who, when they heard Paul, searched the Scriptures to discover if he was telling them the truth. At first, they didn't know he was a prophet.
The King James Version is used because it is widely accepted and in the public domain. It is also a good translation although for some passages, other versions have better represented the manuscripts. As needed, we look at word meanings from the original languages.
What we do not supply
The word of God is precious and far beyond human wisdom (Isa. 55:8; Prov. 3:5). But He has promised the Holy Spirit to help us understand (John 16:13). So, whenever you open the sacred word, also open your heart to God in prayer, allowing the words of this commentary to direct your thoughts to the Scriptures and to the One they tell us about.
