Do not be carried away by the deceiving statement that the Bible "contains" the Word of God.
Reflect on it. A container is different from what it contains; it holds something which itself is not.
We say the Bible IS the Word of God.
He gave it.
He spoke it.
It is infallible.
Men will be judged by it. It is the last appeal. It is God's very and immediate Word. By it every man will stand or fall in the last grand size.
