Scriptures: 2 Peter 1:12-21, Psalm 19:7, Psalm 111:7
The legendary Spanish explorer Ponce De Leon searched for the fabled "fountain of youth". He never found it--but there is another fountain that's available to all of us. The "Fountain of Truth"--God's Word, the Bible. The North American church has sometimes forgotten how valuable and powerful this Book really is. What makes it valuable and what separates it from every other book in the world? In this message, Dr. Merritt details the believer's love affair with God's Word--how to revere it, respect it, obey it and understand it's true importance for life and living.
"The word fable is the Greek word muthos from which we get the word 'myth.' it means a manufactured story that has no basis in fact. Peter makes the point strongly that Christianity is not fable; it is indeed fact. Jesus is not a fairy tale figure. He was, and is, true and real." --Dr. Merritt
