Is the Bible the Inspired Word of God? (Church Feb 4)

First Jesse told a little about BOND — February marks 28 years of BOND. Jesse started his nonprofit after realizing anger held him back in life. He sat quietly to pray, recognized the anger within, and apologized to his mother for hating her. He realized she turned him away from his father, but couldn’t help herself. It was not “racism” that held him or any other black person back. Jesse started a radio show in Los Angeles to tell this good news to black people, but they did not accept it. One thing led to another.

Afterward, we discussed the recent Biblical Question: Is the Bible the inspired Word of God, or were the men who wrote it inspired? 2 Timothy 3:16 calls “all scripture” inspired by God, and Peter says that God-inspired men wrote it. Jesse points out the limits of merely reading words written by men inspired by God. You must be born again.

If you are not ready for the truth, you are better off not knowing — God requires much of those he gives knowledge. If you do the silent prayer (instructions found on the Church page), commit to it.

    This is New Age beliefism mixed with Christianity. No Orthodox Christian believes the Bible is “just a book”. There is a high subjectivity to Jesse`s thoughts and the Bible speaks directly against what he`s teaching. This is why 2 Timothy 3:16 was written. If it was about going inward then the Bible would state that clearly and the Apostles would have expounded upon it. Just because the word Bible (the verse is interpreted with the word Scripture). I would like to know Jesse`s biblical influences. Because I know he didn’t simply go into a corner and came out with all of these thoughts. I wouldn’t be surprised if those influences have New Age leanings.

      Talib, that’s not true — it’s not “New Age.” And no, Jesse doesn’t know anything about “New Age,” much less has he any “New Age” influences. Everything he said is biblical — all of his points are literally found in the Bible. You should call-in to his show and talk with him on-air about your criticisms and speculations, rather than gossiping and complaining online about him. He’s very open and welcomes disagreement and questions. 888-775-3773 M-F 6-9am PT / 8-11am CT / 9-noon ET. http://jlptalk.com
