I believe in a basic premise, starting point, and place of about Scripture. If a man believes in the Scriptural God; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, he also believes in the inspiration of Scripture. On the other hand, if man does not really believe in the Biblical God, but accepts at best only some of the insights of the Bible into religious truth, he will not believe in the unique inspiration of Scripture. The converse is also true. Our belief in the inspiration of Scripture means commitment to be Biblical God, while refection of inspiration means rejection of God. Our acceptance of Scriptural doctrine is part and parcel of our acceptance of the doctrine of God. Scripture flows from the Divine nature, Scripture Is linked with what God has done, God's Scripture (His Word) and works are thus confessed or negated.
