The Supreme Critic

The Supreme Critic

About 1900 years ago St. Paul wrote to Timothy, with regard to the sacred Scriptures:

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (II Tim.3:16).

This truth has been confirmed by overwhelming evidence, and those who have tried, through the centuries, to overthrow the Bible have been about as successful as a man trying to overthrow the Rock of Gibraltar with a pea shooter.

Furthermore, the Word of God towers above the clergy as well as above the laity. The Bereans were called “noble” because they put the words of even the great Apostle Paul to the test of Scripture, to see if he taught anything contrary to it.

That blessed Book is the Supreme Critic. If we overlook vital doctrine, it is the Book that will “teach” us. If we handle the Word deceitfully, it is the Book that will “reprove” us. If we go astray in our conclusions, it is the Book that will “correct” us. Where moral questions are involved, it is the Book that will “instruct us in righteousness.” Well do we remember when we were first convicted by the Bible as the written Word of God — and we have never ceased to thank God for the blessed results.

This Book condemns men as sinners before a holy God, but presents salvation free and complete through the vicarious death of Christ at Calvary.

“Christ died for our sins” (I Cor. 15:3).

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).

To the Reader:
Some of our Two Minutes articles were written many years ago. Rather than rewrite or date such articles, we have left them just as they were when first published. This, we felt, would add to the interest, especially since our readers understand that many of them first appeared as newspaper articles. We hope that you’ll agree that while some of the references in these articles are dated, the spiritual truths taught therein are timeless.

  1. Scripture is ALL WE HAVE, isn’t it……..there’s no “let’s check THAT book and see what God said about this there…” And this is probably why there’s such a purge to get it out of hospital and hotel drawers..and the military! 😦 Thankfully, we WILL keep it alive WITH HIS GUIDANCE!! Have a beautiful day, Sparks 🙂

    1. It is sad how so many are turning away from Jesus. It’s not that they don’t know who He is, they actively hate Him. One thing I’ve learned, though, the devil may try to purge God from the earth, but he won’t succeed. Jesus will be, and is, triumphant. Nice to be on the Winning Team, huh?!
      Hope you have a beautiful day too Z! Keep looking up! ❤

  2. Made me think of this old song:
    Jesus is all the world
    The world to me
    He is my life
    He’s everything that I’ve hoped for
    He’s everything that I need
    When I am lonely
    He gives me comfort
    When I’m sad he cheers me
    I want to let you know
    If I should fall
    He lifts me up
    And When I am empty
    He fills my cup, yeah
