A Non-Negotiable Authority: Mandatory

So if the Word of God is inspired and inerrant; reliable and trustworthy; if it is sufficient and necessary; if it is superior—well then, we don’t negotiate the Bible with God. This book is mandatory! Therefore, today I see that I must accept the charge; I must preach the word; I must anticipate resistance and I must fulfill my ministry. And the only reason we have a ministry is by God’s grace—and the only way we fulfill it is by God’s grace!
