The Bible is Inspired By God
What does it mean that the Bible is “Inspired?"
• Literally means, “God-Breathed."
• Holy Spirit (God) moved men to write.
• He allowed them to use their own language, style, and gifts within
the context of their culture.
• The Holy Spirit overruled in the expression of thought and in the choice of words.
• This “guaranteed” that they recorded accurately all that God wanted them to
say, and exactly how He wanted them to say it.
• The Bible is a harmony of the active mind of the writers and the sovereign
direction of the Holy Spirit.
