"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is for profitable doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness (II Timothy 3:16).
"All scripture is given by the inspiration of God." Upon this statement of fact, evangelical Christianity stands. The Bible claims to be the inspired Word of God. By "inspiration" we mean that the Holy Spirit exerted His supernatural influence upon the writers of the Bible. The writings were inspired--not necessarily the writers, for the Bible nowhere claims to have been written by inspired men.
