The Author Behind the authors - God Inspired Men to Write His Words - 2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21

All Scripture was written by God not men, 2 Timothy 3:16
Todd was a seeker, but one day he challenged a Scriptural principle I shared with his wife. 

When I gave him the reference, he said, "Well, that was just Paul's point of view, not God's." 

I explained that Paul wasn't writing his words when he wrote the Epistles, he was writing God's. 

Todd was genuinely confused, but some people use Todd's argument to ignore passages they don't like. I've actually heard Christians say Paul was immature or only had partial knowledge when he wrote something! 

It's true that Paul's words weren't perfect; but the Epistles are not Paul's words. 

In 2 Peter 3:16, Peter said that Paul's letters "contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures..." 

What a comfort to know that the Bible was written by men who "spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit" (2 Peter 1:21).

    1. Hahaha, totally forget to say that I have experienced that as well. We must remember that God was moving and speaking through them and that if He didn't want it in the Bible it would not BE in the Bible!
