God’s Preserved Words

Justin Johnson

I believe every word in the King James Bible on my desk. Some may find that offensive but I believe it is more offensive to God to believe any less.

There is no good reason to doubt that God could preserve his inspired words perfectly and without error.

The waves and the seas obey him. He has measured out the waters in the hollow of his hand. He declares the end from the beginning and before the world began he knew Christ would die for my sins.

He put on the form of a man, defeated death, and will reign over the universe for eternity. His ways are perfect and his thoughts pure. His faithfulness never ceases and his wisdom is infinite.

It is not a hard conclusion to make that if God inspired words for the salvation of humanity that he would preserve them for those he desired to save.

Sadly, there are many who find it hard to believe every word in the Bible. Others will argue at length attempting to prove the impossibility of God’s preservation through supposed mistakes and errors. Even though I don’t see the need for argument according to Romans 3:3-4, the errors simply don’t exist.

If they have a problem with God’s word, then they will have plenty of time to talk to him about it in heaven. That is, if they are able to trust his words enough to get there.

By the way shouldn’t we be preaching and teaching belief in God and his words and not doubt? What good is it to stand in doubt of the Bible you study when the very words of eternal life and peace with God are only beneficial if they are first believed?

There is a good reason that I believe every word in my King James Bible. The reason is that my faith in God depends upon it.

“…faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” – Romans 10:17

I cannot be throughly furnished unless I do.

“That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. ” – 2 Timothy 3:16

Most importantly, it is an offense to my Lord if I continue in unbelief. It is not a matter of probability that God’s words are preserved. Neither is it a matter of man’s capability. It is a matter of God’s responsibility.

“…And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. ” – Romans 4:21
