Scriptures: 2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Hebrews 4:12
If you had just one book on a deserted island, what would it be? Dr. Merritt suggests it be the Bible, for two reasons. First, because there is a God. Second, because God has given us his final Word in the Bible. Either the Bible is just like any other book that has even been written, or it is unlike any book that has ever been written. Inspired by God, every page contains the very breath of God. This message details the tremendous and valuable gift of the Bible, in the context of the holiday season.
"If this is God’s final word to the human race then all that you ever need to spiritually believe is found here and nowhere else. That is why I call it God’s 'Final Word' not God’s 'best word', because it is God’s only word. That is why you don’t need a Book of Mormon, or a Koran, and that is why you don’t need any other source of spiritual truth. You have everything you need and all that you need between the pages of this book. Genesis is the beginning of God’s Word. Revelation is the ending of God’s Word and what you have in-between is God’s Final Word." --Dr. Merritt
