In 2 Timothy 3:16–17 Paul writes, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” God demands that Christians submit to the authority and sufficiency of Scripture. We can rely on it to guide us in every aspect of our lives. But how do we respond to controversial contemporary issues? Does Scripture have all the answers?
Biblical Sufficiency Applied approaches various controversial topics in light of Scripture, among them parental discipline, the new perspective on Paul, worship, testing God, Rob Bell’s Love Wins, and more! It will challenge and encourage readers to be confident in Scripture’s sufficiency and to use it as the eminent guide to Christian living. All Scripture passages are linked to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With the advanced reference features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “discipline” or “worship.”
“Since Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar persist in attributing the cause of the calamity to something Job must have done, they show the inability of human CRW to resolve the calamity of Job. They discredit the life of Job (which life the Lord had decreed ‘upright and blameless’) to serve their own purposes. Job bemoaned the lack of compassion and true concern of his so-called friends in their merciless interrogation of Job in his time of grief and discomfort.” (Page 11)
“worship—that which is spiritual, internal and a matter of the submission of man’s will to the will of God” (Page 189)
“the faculty of human CRW is inadequate to resolve the perplexities of life.” (Page 8)
“Worship is not a matter of man’s cleverness or creativity.” (Page 188)
