The Sunday Message

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. – 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NIV)

Many people believe that the words in the Bible are inspired by God and it is without error. Others believe that it is the human interpretation of what God was telling the writers.

A recent Gallup poll found that a record few Americans believe the Bible is the literal word of God. Gallup reported:

Fewer than one in four Americans (24%) now believe the Bible is “the actual word of God, and is to be taken literally, word for word,” similar to the 26% who view it as “a book of fables, legends, history and moral precepts recorded by man.” This is the first time in Gallup’s four-decade trend that biblical literalism has not surpassed biblical skepticism. Meanwhile, about half of Americans — a proportion largely unchanged over the years — fall in the middle, saying the Bible is the inspired word of God but that not all of it should be taken literally.

So where do your beliefs fall in this poll? Actual word of God? A book of fables, legends history, and moral precepts recorded by man? Or do you believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God but that not all of it should be taken literally?

There’s more interesting information from the Gallup poll that you can read HERE.

No matter how you view the Bible, I believe it is a wonderful guide, rulebook, and law in by which to live. The Bible has helped me.
