The Bible Is God’s Word

—John MacArthur

“The Old Testament writers refer, either specifically or generally, to what they’re writing as the very words of God about 4,000 times. Two thousand times they make direct claims that the Lord spoke to them, but at least 4,000 times, they affirm that what they are writing is the word of God. The New Testament writers quote the Old Testament as the word of God about 320 times, and make reference to the Old Testament at least a thousand times. So, the writers of the New Testament affirm the infallibility and inerrancy of the Old.”

清教徒教會對作父親的要求

——Paul Washer, The Christian Life 2
“你要知道,在某些清教徒教會中,父親若不願意教導孩子要理問答,你就會被教會公開開除。我記得好像是約翰歐文的教會,每個父親都要寫自己的要理問答,讓牧師檢查他要教導的題材。你看到我們是何等的墮落嗎?”

“Believing God” vs. “Believing in God”

I agree that “believing God” means trusting God, and “believing in God” means believing there is God or believing that God is real. The point is, if one truly believes that God exists or God is real, he or she will believe everything God says. Therefore, believing in God implies believing God, and vice versa. Actually, those two phrases are both used in the Bible. For example:

John 5:24 = “believes Him who sent Me”
John 6:29 = “believe in Him whom He has sent”

John 3:16 = “… everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.”

Hebrews 11:6 = “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him.”
