Why we believe what we believe about Inspiration is not important to our faith, it is crucial, because if indeed this is God’s message to man, rooted from God to us in these forms we hold today, it is the message of hope, life, truth, and salvation to which we ascribe and which we hope to share with others.
Is the Bible the Word of God, or not?
Listen as Michael teaches part one of two on the Doctrine of Inspiration.
When we think about this doctrine of the Trinity – that there’s three persons in one Godhead, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – even for academics and Theologians, it’s a mind bending subject. It’s complicated.
Yet, Scripture has a lot to offer about the relationship not only within the Trinity, but as human beings relate to God.
Interestingly, apart from a Trinitarian Godhead, no one could be saved. In other words, if we don’t understand the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the role of those three persons; we don’t understand how a human being could be saved.
In this episode, Michael addresses questions about Jesus as both man and God on earth, whether we can walk out of the hand of God after we’re secure in our salvation, whether Jesus’ blood atones for the sins of everyone or just for a select group, what Michael thinks about when people say they ‘hear from God,’ and Jephthah’s rash vow to sacrifice whatever walked out his door to greet him when he returned from battle.
