    The Bible is a Transforming Power | Les Newsom

    Sermon Reference: 2 Timothy 3:14-17, Hebrews 4:12-13

    Perhaps the reason why we are disinterested in the Bible is because we don't fully apprehend what the Bible claims to be. The truth is: if you are committed to the status quo in your life, then by all means don't dive into the transforming power that is the Scripture.

    The God Who Speaks
    God's Words and Our Words
    God's Words and Our Lives

    The Bible is Wisdom Literature | Les Newsom

    Scripture Reference: Deuteronomy 4:5-6

    The Bible is Divine & Human | Les Newsom

    The Bible is Divine & Human | Les Newsom

    Scripture Reference: 2 Peter 1:16-21

    So is the Bible a book created by God or by the hands of sinful men? While we often say the correct answer, "Both!" oftentimes we fail to realize how differently that conviction leads us to look at the world around us and how we picture a Christian's mission in the world.

    Sermon Points:

    The Problem of the Bible's Humanity
    The Solution of the Bible's Humanity
    The Application of the Bible's Humanity
