Do We Believe God's Word?

As we saw a few days ago, there are people who are trying their best to disannul God's judgments -- to "explain away" God's Word so that they can approve their works. It is very easy to get on topics (such as abortion) and debate heatedly, trying to convince others of their error. However, the bottom line is: what does God Word say? If one does not trust God's Word, they will not even see the errors of their ways.

What do you believe about God's Word? Here are some of my beliefs of God's Word:

The Word of God is Inspired ("God-breathed")
"For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool." (Mark 12:36) 

"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." 2 Timothy 3:16

"For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." (2 Peter 1:21) 

"And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction." (2 Peter 3:15-16)

God's Word is Truth
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. (John 17:17)

And now, O Lord GOD, thou art that God, and thy words be true, and thou hast promised this goodness unto thy servant: (2 Samuel 7:28)

The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. (Psalms 19:9)

Thou art near, O LORD; and all thy commandments are truth. (Psalms 119:151)

God's Word is without error
Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it. (Psalms 119:140)

Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. (Proverbs 30:5)

Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. (Psalms 119:128)

The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. (Psalms 12:6)

As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. (Psalms 18:30)

The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. (Psalms 19:8)

Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. (Romans 7:12)

It is total authority
"Thus saith the Lord" and/or "the Lord saith - 867 verses

It is eternal
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. (Matthew 24:35, Mark 13:31, Luke 21:33)

For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. (Psalms 119:89)

It is given to us for instruction in life, godliness, doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction
For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. (Romans 15:4)

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. (2 Peter 1:3-4)

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (2 Corinthians 7:1)
