So, beginnings first (that's how people usually do it) the first point of Thumperism is... Drum-roll please...
- Inerrancy - the holy, perfect state
- Scriptures - the complete 66 books that God has combined into one volume, His complete revelation to man.
Putting this all into a nutshell: God preserved His perfect and holy word from the beginning. He translated it into our English language, in which we now have, the Authorized Version of 1611.
What is the Christian supposed to do with all of this? Well several things pop into my mind at the moment. First of all, and foremost, we need to thank God for this Book! Do you realize that if God's Word wasn't inerrant, if it wasn't perfect, than we would be in complete loss. We would be headed strait for Hell, because we would have never heard of the sweet name of Jesus. God's inerrant Words are something to be ever so thankful for.
We also need to stand-up for this Book. No other book in all of history has been attacked more than God's Word. It seems that from every angle the Book is being criticized, mocked, and scoffed at. As soldiers for the good cause of Jesus Christ, we need to fight to our last breath for God's Book. God uses men and women like you and I. He will use you if you are willing to submit to His calling, and fight for what is right.
And lastly you can read it. Why else did God preserve His written Word? Don't let God's Words go to waste! I love that verse in 2 Timothy were it says (speaking of God's Words): "That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." God wants to use His inerrant Words to change you for the better. Let Him!
