Wesley's Notes for 2 Timothy 3:16

3:16 All scripture is inspired of God - The Spirit of God not only once inspired those who wrote it, but continually inspires, supernaturally assists, those that read it with earnest prayer. Hence it is so profitable for doctrine, for instruction of the ignorant, for the reproof or conviction of them that are in error or sin, for the correction or amendment of whatever is amiss, and for instructing or training up the children of God in all righteousness.


People's Bible Notes for 2 Timothy 3:16

2Ti 3:16 All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God. The Revised Version is much better: "Every Scripture inspired of God is also profitable", etc. Whether it is depends on its inspiration. For instance, the Apocrypha is called Scripture, but is not inspired. For doctrine. For teaching.

Evangelist Jeanette A. Valentine's comment on 2014-06-23 15:23:14:

Just as the Lord said through 2Timothy 3 16 ALL SCRIPTURE IS GIVEN, NOT SOME, BUT ALL IS GIVEN BY INSPIRATION OF GOD, ALMIGHTY GOD IS THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE. WE LIVE BY FAITH.Man didn 't just happen think about these words off the top of his head. God cares for us and has given us specific instruction on how to live to please Him. No matter how you disect it , The word of God stands true.

Yes, I agree , the Word of God is the account ; it is not a story : Yes , I agree, the Word of God is His altitude. How far do you want to go up ? The Word of God is inspired by God to men for us to profit in all areas ofmine and your life. Praise God for a copy of His written Word for my life .

Yes Lord your Word Is All True,as Your Word This World Will But Your Word Will Not!


Larry Sloma's comment on 2013-12-01 08:15:47:

Jesus Christ is the Word of God (Logos) and the Bible is the 'account' of what God breathed. 'WE'hear the Shepherd and Follow Him and have the VOICE of the Holy Spirit as 'teacher' as Scripture says. There is dispute between what we have been told by man and what God has said.


Doris's comment on 2013-11-20 03:16:20:

I say yes Lord, your word is true, powerful, and sharper. Your word works in every erea of our lives as christians. Thank you my Father for your word in me.


Santos Tovar's comment on 2013-11-07 12:15:10:

Yes, the original scriptures were inspired by God. If any discrepan-
cies have occurred, these are due to translations misspellings and other human inaccuracies, not God's. Therefore, all Scripture is inspired, accurate, and truthful to God plan for humankind.


Centive's comment on 2013-09-22 01:40:53:

All scripture is profitable for doctrine. It doesn't say all scripture is doctrine.


Joseph Gakura (kenya)'s comment on 2013-08-16 19:34:28:

i like to say yes Lord,the scripture tells you your altitude.


Tom Goff's comment on 2013-06-05 08:36:59:

All scripture is 'God Breathed' straight from the mouth of God. THAT is God talking to you. Even as important as if you heard his voice speaking aloud personally just to you. Remember Moses? We should say , " Yes Lord!" each time we read His Word.


Douglas's comment on 2013-05-07 10:28:51:

Truth of God is in all Christians, that we can be able to go forth with the Holy Spirit guiding us on every step we take on the narrowed path that God has set before us all.


Anthony F.alcanar's comment on 2011-09-18 13:44:27:

The bible is the word of God.A very powerful book which can change every thing, it gives hopes and grace. Because the bible was made by God by His unquestionable love for all of the human being he create. You and me is one of the main reason why God decided to book bind His word, this is the testament which is written how he create us and save us from the grave. All we to do is follow His word and that is the bible thw word of God....
