No Foundation Upon Which To Build Their Faith

And without a strong view of Scripture as a foundation, we will not be ready for the hard days to come. Unless the Bible is without error, not only when it speaks of salvation matters, but also when it speaks of history and the cosmos, we have no foundation for answering questions concerning the existence of the universe and its form and the uniqueness of man. Nor do we have any moral absolutes, or certainty of salvation, and the next generation of Christians will have nothing on which to stand. Our spiritual and physical children will be left with the ground cut out from under them, with no foundation upon which to build their faith or their lives.
- Francis A. Schaeffer, The Great Evangelical Disaster

"In the beginning was the Bible. And the Bible was with God. And the Bible was God."

Doesn't that sound ridiculous?

Does not God use earthen vessels for His purposes?

The finite contains the infinite.

The Bible is fully a product of man, and of God. Like our dear Lord Himself.
