Question 4: The religious pastors and elder always expound man’s words in the Bible when they preach to us, especially those of Paul. They don’t spread the Lord’s words or the Lord’s will. This is indeed a fact. But there’s one thing that still puzzles me. Isn’t the Bible inspired by God? Don’t the words in the Bible come from God? Why do you make such a clear distinction between the words of man and those of God in the Bible? Aren’t man’s words in the Bible revelations from God?
Answer: “All scripture is given by revelation of God.” Who exactly said this? Are you clear? Did God say that, or was it man? On what grounds did you make your point? “All scripture is given by revelation of God.” This wasn’t said by Jehovah God, nor by the Lord Jesus, or the Holy Spirit. It was said by Paul. Paul wasn’t Christ. He was merely a corrupt man. How could he know that all scripture is inspired by God? Whether or not all scripture is God-breathed is something only God knows, is an issue that only Christ can clarify to us. Because man can’t know or see through such things. If it starts from the time Moses wrote “Genesis” till the Lord Jesus’ coming to work, there exists at least a thousand-year gap. It’s clear that Paul didn’t know the authors of the Scriptures at all. How could he know those words of men were all inspired by God? Could the authors of the Scriptures have contact with Paul and tell him all their words were inspired by God? It’s clear that Paul spoke those words without any proof. He said that based on his personal knowledge of the Scriptures. It wasn’t on behalf of the Lord Jesus, nor the Holy Spirit. This is a fact. Based on this word of Paul, the pastors and elders in the religious world conclude that all the words in the Bible are inspired by God and are God’s words. This contradicts the historical facts. In the apostles’ time, when the churches received their letters, everyone would say it was the apostles’ words or these were Brother Paul’s words. Nobody would say that they were words inspired by God, or they were the Lord Jesus’ words. Even Paul himself dared not say that his words were God’s words, or were inspired by God, much less say he spoke on the Lord Jesus’ behalf. And so, that “all scripture is given by revelation of God” is simply groundless! Only Paul said so, and he referred to the Old Testament. Yet people believe it. Why do people believe these words of Paul? If someone else said these words, would people believe it? It’s evident that people have blind faith in Paul and worship him too much. Every word of Paul seems to be that of God. Isn’t it people’s notion and imagination? This shows completely that people keep Paul instead of the Lord Jesus in their hearts. They all worship and follow man but don’t fear the Lord or exalt Him.
