The Necessity of Scripture
The Bible is necessary to know God, salvation, and how to live a holy life. We need God’s word for all of life. We cannot live without God’s word. Jesus said in Matthew 4:4, “man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” This was in the context of His temptation from Satan. Jesus needed and we need to use the Bible to live life. The Bible is necessary. You can view show notes and resources here.

The Inspiration of Scripture
If the Bible is not God’s Word then anything else we might say about it won’t matter.

This is foundational for our understanding of God and the Bible. You can view show notes and resources here.

The goal of evangelism is not the minimum amount of truth to the maximum number of people but rather the maximum amount of truth to the maximum number of people.
