It is His word, it was here before creation and it will be here when humans are dust. In the beginning was the word and the word became flesh. Jesus quoted scripture all the time.

It is the word of God from Genesis (in the beginning) to Revelations (Revelation of Jesus Christ). Nothing more is needed and if God does add something then He will never contradict His word (scripture) so all we need is the bible.

Exactly!!! Any new "revelation" that contradicts the Word of God, which is Jesus, is not from God! They do not understand this because they have scales on their eyes. They have scales on their eyes because no, the truth is not in them.

Do you believe Scripture interprets Scripture?

You don't allow anyone to do anything. If you are speaking of Carolina_Guy and your dislike of his speaking the truth, it is God who COMMANDED him to do so.

Mark 16:15
He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.

You are being vilified and called horrible names because you speak "the truth" in the face of the deceived. You are doing God's just work against a collapsing, unsaved civilization. Anyone who uses his or her mind to think anything but what people thought 2,000 years ago is "taken by the Devil".
1 Peter 4:16
However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.

2 Corinthians 12:10
That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

John 15:18-19
"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.

Quote:
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know how your mythology works. I've spent plenty enough time around your sect.
It's not mythology, and it's not a sect. Christianity is based on a proven prophetic book, which just happens to be the Bible, the Word of God. Christianity can only be obtained by believing that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for our sins and accepting Him as Savior. Do the studies, do the research on fulfilled prophecy.

2 Timothy 4:3
For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.

Quote:
It's interesting that you use the phrase "the truth is not in you" when referring to a book that is clearly not within you. It's a book. It's not within anyone.
It's not a phrase, it's scripture from the Holy Bible. The Bible is indeed written on the hearts of those who believe in God and His Son Jesus Christ.

1 John 2:4
The man who says, "I know him," but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

2 Corinthians 3:3
You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

Quote:
One of your reincarnations you'll understand all of this. For now, you need a book - or, as you might say, an extra leg to stand on.
There are no reincarnations. It's just another lie. For now and forever, we have the only book that is needed and required. The Holy Bible is not an extra leg, it is the Word of God that we stand on.

Hebrews 9:27-28
Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

Quote:
Someday you'll be standing on your own two legs.
No, we will not. None of us will ever do this. Here's what will happen, "someday":

Romans 14:11
It is written: " 'As surely as I live,' says the Lord, 'every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.' "

It's solely up to you as to what you will confess and where you will spend eternity. But you will be doing it ON YOUR KNEES.

I can't rep you again, but this is an amazing post and brought tears to my eyes--I was listening to I Will Rise by Chris Tomlin at the same time. Thank you for taking the time to write this, DotL, God used you to give me encouragement. I pray many will see the truth in your post, this truth that comes from God! Amen sister!
