Daily Bible Nugget #781, Proverbs 30:5

The Nugget:

Proverbs 30:5  Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

My Comment:

I have been responding to a number of Muslim challenges to the truth of the Bible. Here is a short example from today that should be instructive to all where I said to a fine Muslim:

You comment with great insight above that:

“The biggest problem with Bible is the various voices. Some places G-d Speaks. Some places Jesus speaks. Some places wicked men like Paul speaks. Some places the enemy of man speaks.”

This may be a very unique quality of the Bible: it faithfully and accurately records the words of the people it tells us about.

The Bible says this about itself:

Proverbs 30:5
5  Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
King James Version

We should have no problem believing what God has spoken in His written word, the Bible.

We should have no problem believing what our Lord Jesus Christ has spoken in His written word recorded in the Bible.

Jesus told us in no uncertain terms that Satan or the Devil is a liar (John 8:44), so we must be very cautious about believing what Satan says, for often when Satan speaks, what he says is untrue, incorrect, or a flat-out lie. But the Bible truthfully records what Satan has said when it quotes him.

Now there are wicked men whose words are also truthfully and accurately recorded in the Bible as a matter of historical record.

However, we must not blaspheme our Lord Jesus Christ by suggesting that what Paul is accurately recorded as saying, doing, or writing is wicked because our Lord Jesus Christ Himself has told us that He chose Paul to be His Apostle to proclaim His truth to the Jews, the Gentiles, and to kings. The historical record in the New Testament shows Paul faithfully accomplished that appointed mission.

Jesus said:

Acts 9:15  But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
Acts 9:16  For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name’s sake.
