Romans 11:33-36

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

The Character and Nature of God

The character and nature of God insures the inspiration, inerrancy, and infallibility of the Bible. Some would consider this a circular argument, but it is one that is completely logical. If the God of the Bible exists, He is perfect, righteous, holy and omnibenevolent. As such He loved man enough to reveal Himself to him. He revealed Himself in His creation – not enough to know Him intimately, but enough to know He exists.

If God was the god purported by the Deists, that limited revelation would be sufficient – but He is so much more. He made us for relationship with Him. Because of that, He revealed Himself in His Word. He is known sufficiently, truly and intimately through His Word – His inspired, inerrant, and infallible written Word, and His Word made flesh.
