The Scriptures are inspired.  2 Timothy 3:16

Some think a writing is inspired if it was written by someone with exceptional talent, and it is motivational.

When the Bible claims to be inspired it claims to be God-breathed or to have originated with God.

"No scripture is of any private interpretation." 2 Peter 1:20

"It did not originate with the men who spoke " (Jenkins).  "It is not the result of human investigation into the nature of things, the product of the writers' own thinking…" (Warfield).

Holy men of God spoke as they were "moved" by the Holy Spirit.  2 Peter 1:21

"What is 'borne' is taken up by the 'bearer,' and conveyed by the bearer's power, not its own, to the bearer's goal, not its own" (Warfield).

The Bible writers were moved, guided, or born by the Holy Spirit to say the very things God wanted said.


What Must I Do To Be Saved?

No question is more important than this. We make many important decisions in life regarding matters such as education, marriage, and occupation. But none is as transcending as that which affects our soul's eternity (Matt. 16:26).


"Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?"

Luke 9:23-25
