“In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began.” - Titus 1:2
We speak of the Bible as inerrant and infallible. But is it really important that we believe that the Word of God is true and perfect?
Yes. If any part of His Word is not true, then we must conclude that God is a liar. But God cannot lie! Every word in the Bible can be relied upon. Billy Graham came to this conclusion in the early years of his ministry and prayed, “I have seen enough of the transforming power of this Word to know that You are behind it…. I take it by faith…and trust You to make clear to me what it means.”
F. B. Myer, one of the greatest devotional writers of all time, said if any promise of God should fail, “the heavens will clothe themselves in sackcloth, and the sun and moon and stars will reel from their seats, the universe will rock, and a hollow wind moan through creation, bearing the tidings that God is mutable, that God can lie.”
A God of truth cannot inspire untruth. Praise God for His absolute trustworthiness.
