Dead Men on the Bible

Oswald Chambers, 1874-1917

Referencing the mystery of the Bible and 2 Peter 1.21, ("Holy men spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit"), Oswald Chambers said: "The mystery of the Bible is that its inspiration was direct from God, not verbally inspired, but the inspired Word of God – the Final Word of God; not that God is not saying anything now, but He is not saying anything different from the Final Word, Jesus Christ.  All God says is expounding on that Word.  The Final Word and the only Word are very different.  Be reverant with the Bible explanation of itself."

Martin Luther, 1483-1546

"This is the sum of the matter:  that everything shall be done so that the Word prevails…We can spare everything except the Word.  We profit by nothing so much as by the Word.  For the whole Scripture shows that the Word should have free course among Christians.  And in Luke 10, Jesus Himself says: 'One thing is needful' – that Mary sit at the feet of Christ and daily hear His Word…"  (Mary Jean sent me this one)

Soren Kierkegaard, 1813-1855

"When you read God's Word, you must constantly be saying to yourself, 'it is talking to me, and about me.'"
