Because they are deceived they believe that he is a good pastor. The Bible talks about this in the last days. How many people will be deceived. So many times people just believe everything their pastor tells them without checking it to the Word of God. The Bible is the ONLY book a pastor should be preaching from. Jesus didn’t leave us here in the dark. We have HIS Word and sadly, people are just believing in people rather then testing them and what they teach to the Word of God. If you have a good pastor he will have you get your Bible out and study God’s Word not his. I love my church because all we use is the WORD OF GOD. If you come to my church and don’t have a Bible one will be given to you to use and to keep if you don’t have one. The Bible is literally our handbook given to us by the Lord to guide us in ALL areas of our life in these last days. DON’T LET ANYONE FOOL YOU!!!! Too many pastors and leaders are afraid to come up against a pastor like Rick Warren. The Bible preaching pastors do. The ones that don’t really are not putting their trust in the Lord God. If they truly trusted Jesus pastors like him would NEVER stand a chance. The phrase biblia sacra (holy books) first appeared sometime in the Middle Ages. In English, one of the earliest—if not the earliest—uses of “The Holy Bible” appeared in 1611 on the cover of the Authorized Version, known in the U.S. as the King James Version. The word holy has several meanings, and, as we will see, all of them describe the Word of God.
One meaning of holy is “sacred, sanctified, hallowed.” When God spoke to Moses at the burning bush, He commanded Moses to remove his sandals because he was standing on holy ground. This was ground made holy by God’s presence. Because God is sacred, the words He speaks are also sacred, and sinful men such as Moses must be mindful of God’s holiness. In the same way, the words God gave Moses on Mount Sinai are also sacred, just as all words God has given to mankind in the Bible are holy and sacred because He is holy and sacred. Just as God is perfect, so are His words perfect (Psalm 19:7). Just as God is righteous and pure, so is His Word righteous and pure (Psalm 19:8).
The Bible is also holy because it was written by men under the direction and influence of the Holy Spirit. “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16). The Greek word translated “God-breathed” is Theopneustos, from theos, meaning “God,” and pneo, meaning “to breathe or breathe upon.” We get the English word pneumonia from this Greek root. So, our Holy God, in the person of the Holy Spirit, literally breathed the holy words of Scripture into the writers of each of the books through supernatural means. The divine Writer is holy; therefore, what He writes is holy.
Another meaning of holy is to be “set apart,” just as God set the nation of Israel apart from her contemporaries to be a “kingdom of priests and a holy nation” (Exodus 19:6). Similarly, Christians are set apart from unbelievers who walk in darkness, as described by Peter: “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” This “set apart” aspect of holiness is true of the Bible because it is a book set apart from all others. It is the only book written by God Himself, the only book that has the power to set men free (John 8:32), to change their lives and make them wise (Psalm 19:7), to sanctify them and make them holy (John 17:17). It is the only book that gives life, comfort, and hope (Psalm 119:50), and it is the only book that will endure until the end of time (Matthew 5:18).
I don’t care what people think of me. I care about what God thinks. I will stand with the Lord and His Holy Word. That is all I need to make it through till the end. READ Your Bibles and no one will be able to lead you astray. God bless your heart!!!!:):):)
