Inspiriation

A. C. Dixon, Pastor of Metropolitan Tabernacle, London, England commented about the Scriptures as the inspirid Word of God when he said:

“2. A BIBLICAL USE OF THE BIBLE
It is four-fold: “Profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness? “Doctrine” is the teaching, not of the man as he may express his opinion in social converse, but of the ambassador who carries with him the weight of his government’s authority; and in the Bible we find God’s official proclamation of love, pardon, cleansing, righteousness and peace.
The word “reproof” comes after doctrine, because it has to do with the character which doctrine makes. The Bible is profitable not only for the doctrine which we get out of it, but it is the standard by which we try our doctrines. It proves and reproves. It is the plumb-line that we drop by the wall to see if it is straight. It is the yard-stick by which we measure every creed.
The word “correction” means restoration, and gives a thought in advance of doctrine and reproof. It has in it the thought of making right what we have found to be wrong. The plumb-line may show that the wall leans, but it cannot straighten it. The yard-stick may reveal that the cloth is too short, but it cannot lengthen it. The Bible, however, not only shows us wherein we are wrong, but it can right us. When Canova saw the piece of marble which, at great expense, had been secured for a celebrated statue; his practiced eye discovered a little piece of black running through it, and he rejected it. He could discover the black, but he could not make the black white. The Bible discovers the black and makes it white.
The fourth word, “instruction,” means literally “child-culture,” and has in it all that the parent needs for the growth, development and maturing of the child. The Bible is a training school in righteousness. Other books give training in music, rhetoric, oratory, but the specialty of the Bible is training in righteousness.”(http://fundamentalists.whybaptist.com/chaptereight-two.aspx)

Economics

A prophets primary concern is not primarily fore telling future events, but forth telling of God’s message to the nation or the people. Where the fore telling part has ended the forth telling part will never end.

There is no real simple answer to the monetary crisis that we are facing at this time. The causes of it are multitude and not just caused by one particular political party. I blame this problem on the Democrats and the Republicans, simply because we have Republicans in the White House and Democrats in the congress and both seem unable or unwilling to address the problem. The value of the dollar has taken a big hit, this coupled with expenditures that do not add anything back to our economy are beginning to destroy America.

The war in Iraq is part of the problem, a big part, but it is not necessarily the most important part. It would have helped if we had gotten out of Iraq entirely last year, but now the damage has been done and it is irreversible. Spending money on a war that is not only not winnable, but has no end in sight is foolish. Wars in the past have generally helped the economy, but this was when manufacturing was geared up to produce weapons and machinery for war. We are siphoning off energy to use in the war and that is creating problems at home at the gas pump.

The moral quagmire that we have immersed ourselves in since the 1960’s is by far the largest part of the problem. We seem convinced that we can have a huge amount of personal freedom, but zero amount of personal accountability. We are killing millions of future Americans and do not even seem to care. Abortions are increasing at an alarming rate. Today our society demands the most out of “I”, even if it means destroying an unborn life. God help it if something should get in the way of “I” even if it is a helpless little one. No mater how this particular problem is addressed it is still pre-meditated murder. We do not want to put the ten commandments up in courthouses let alone in schools. This aparently because we do not want God envolved in our national life. Well guess what folks, He is involved anyway and the Judgment day is approaching, but it is not to late to repent.

We are spending millions of dollars a year on entertainment of all kinds and an equal amount on drugs and alcohol. Our churches have swallowed the current trends in business trying to make the message palitible and they are getting bigger, but they have sacrificed preaching the word of God in its entirety to do it. We no longer preach about sin, righteousness and judgment for fear that some group will be offended. We want to pack people into our churches and we want them to be comfortable with what we say. We want them to come back to our churches like they do to McDonald’s. Folks we are not McDonald’s we are the church that Christ built and we have His message to preach to the nations. The message is more important then the people and allegiance to God’s Word should take our primary attention.

We do not even believe in nor practice the first eleven chapters of Genesis. The gospel is now just a quaint story and the Bible is full of errors to many. We need to repent now and return to preaching the truths of God’s Word before it is too late. The departure from faith in the message that started in Genesis is slowly eroding what is left of our moral values and convictions. It is surprising how the message of the book Genesis has effected everything we do and think. If the doctrines that are derived from Genesis are lost then so is everything else. Genesis 3 records the fall of Adam and hence the whole race, this important doctrine can be followed from Genesis to Revelation. Romans 3:23 declares “(Rom 3:23) For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
” Romans 6:23 tells us that the “(Rom 6:23) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Romans also tells us that “(Rom 5:12) Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” This message would not exist if it were not for the book of Genesis, gut the book of Genesis and the Christian message disappears.

Our friends and neighbors do not need a message they want to hear, but a message that they need to hear. We should not be primarily tailoring a message that makes them feel good, but a message that will turn them to the truth. (2Ti 4:3) “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;” Messages that are tailored to make them feel good won’t get them saved.

Righteousness

(Rom 3:21) But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

(Rom 3:22) Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

(1Co 15:34) Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.

(2Co 3:9) For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.

(2Co 5:21) For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

(2Co 9:10) Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)

(2Co 11:15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

(Gal 2:21) I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

(Gal 3:6) Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.

(Gal 3:21) Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.

(Heb 11:33) Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

(2Pe 1:1) Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:

(2Pe 2:5) And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
