It's in the Bible...Really?

“God helps those who help themselves.”
“Spare the rod, spoil the child.”
“God works in mysterious ways.”
“Cleanliness is next to Godliness.”
"Jonah was swallowed by a whale."
"Three wise men visited baby Jesus."

Why do these false Bible quotes go unchallenged by people who claim to know the Bible?

Here is another one non-Biblical phrase that many professing Christians accept without thinking.

“The Bible will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from the Bible”.

If that were true, Bible believer's would not sin but, we all know they do! The only thing that will keep you from sin is the power of Grace and Love in Christ that transforms a person from the inside out.

The Bible is the book that informs...it cannot transform!

It tells us about Christ and exhorts us to turn everything over to Him and to walk in His Spirit. But the Bible is not an end in itself. Reading the Bible is good and proper for a believer but, it doesn't do us any good unless we are infused in Jesus and Jesus infused in us by His gracious Grace and Love and we put our full confidence and Trust in the Christ the Bible describes rather than the Bible itself.
