What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

Expect that John, called the disciple that Jesus loved, would, when writing an epistle to Gentile believers, emphasizes the things Jesus emphasized. In Chapter two, three, and four he states it plainly and repeatedly, make sure you and others are truly saved, saved people have a different sort of love, and watch out for false teachers. An astute Bible student might take this theme of John and find it repeatedly interwoven in the teachings of our Lord and Saviour. After his nine blessed “R”s Jesus teaches that his commandments are higher than the commandments of the law (Matt 5:21,27,31,33,38), and John says, “He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments is a liar” (1John 2:4). His sermon on the mount declared “If ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?” (Matt 5:46), and John says “For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another” (1John 3:11). Jesus taught on that mountain side, “Enter in at the straight gate,” and “beware of false prophets which come to you in sheep's clothing” (Matt 7:13,15), and John, “This is that spirit of antichrist, wherefore ye have heard that it should come” (1John 4:3). Man, as secular humanist, Roman religionist, or ecumenical modernist, teachs that the Bible is a man-made book. The Apostle John wrote the Truth down sixty years after he heard it from our Lord Jesus Christ. C. I. Scofield attests to the miracle of such inspiration with this thought, “These writers, some forty-four in number, writing through twenty centuries, have produced a perfect harmony of doctrine in progressive unfolding. This is, to every candid mind, the unanswerable proof of the Divine inspiration of the Bible. It is herein marvelous to behold.
