Correct. Keep up the good work.

"All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NAS)

What would you think of a person or group that tried to teach that the Bible was not sufficient for you to be "thoroughly equipped?"

What is "scripture?"

Some try to say that the word "scripture" only refers to the Old Testament, however from the following verses we see that the New Testament writings came from God or Jesus through the inspired writers...and that these letters were also considered "scripture."

For example in 2 Peter chapter 3, Paul's letters were indirectly referred to as scriptures. The apostle Peter refers to people who distort the writing of Paul as they do the "rest of the Scriptures."

"...and regard the patience of our Lord to be salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction." 2 Peter 3:15-16 -- (NAS)

The holy writings (scriptures) that the apostles received were from the Lord, through God's Spirit:

"For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread..." 1 Corinthians 11:23 (NAS)

" these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world." Hebrews 1:2 (NAS)

"But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God." 2 Peter 1:20-21 (NAS)

"If anyone thinks he is a prophet or spiritual, let him recognize that the things which I write to you are the Lord's commandment." 1 Corinthians 14:37 (NAS)

"But when they deliver you up, do not become anxious about how or what you will speak; for it shall be given you in that hour what you are to speak." Matthew 10:19 (Jesus speaking to His 12 apostles -- NAS)

"Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words." 1 Corinthians 2:12-13 (NAS)

Do you believe that the Bible is the inspired (God-breathed) word from God?
