{New Post} In preserving the Bible from error, God is loving us – John Piper

bible

The Scriptures are meant to protect people. How so?

  • Truth leads to freedom (John 8:32); error leads to bondage (2 Timothy 2:25-26).
  • Truth saves (2 Thessalonians 2:10); error destroys (2 Thessalonians 2:11).
  • Truth enlightens (Psalm 43:3; Ephesians 5:9); error deceives (Proverbs 12:17; 2 Corinthians 11:13).
  • Truth gives life (1 John 5:20); error brings death (2 Samuel 6:7).

Therefore, God is concerned not only for his own gory in being a God of truth (Romans 3:7); he is concerned also for us when he guards his word from error.

Taken from John Piper’s book A Peculiar Glory: How the Christian Scriptures Reveal Their Complete Truthfulness.
