What does Texas Baptist Men believe about the Bible?
Texas Baptist Men believe the Bible is God’s Holy Word. We believe it was written by men who were divinely inspired by God. It is trustworthy, authoritative and true without any mixture of error. The Bible itself best expresses what TBM believes about the Bible:
“Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.” Psalm 119:89
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” Psalm 119:105
“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8
Jesus said, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.” Matthew 5:17-18
“. . . the Holy Scriptures . . . are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:15-17
There can be no improvement over words of scripture about scripture.
