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.
Scripture doesn’t tell us everything we may want to know about everything. But it tells us everything we need to know about the most important things. It gives us something the Internet, with all its terabytes of information, never could: wisdom. The purpose of the Holy Scripture is not ultimately to make you smart, or make you relevant, or make you rich, or get you a job, or get you married, or take all your problems away, or tell you where to live. The aim is that you might be wise enough to put your faith in Christ and be saved.
From infancy you have known
the Holy Scriptures,
able to make you wise
for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.
God’s Word never promises to answer every human question, but it does promise to be the basis of truth for understanding all things (Psalm 86:11; Proverbs 30:5; John 1:14; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16). That includes history and science, as well as doctrine.
When we base our thinking on God’s authoritative Word, we can confidently answer questions about our world and our life. The question is not whether we can answer every question but whether the Bible is trustworthy in all that it teaches—and it is. Often we underestimate the direct answers we do have in Scripture.
Do not add to or subtract from these commands I am giving you. Just obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you.
And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ.
