The Bible is NOT Jesus, Therefore it is NOT the WORD of God.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it. 

The written word of God...the bible...points to the Living Word of God...Jesus Christ.


The Word of God became flesh...the bible, the written word of God did not become flesh?


The Word was with God and the Word was God... the bible was not with God nor is the bible God?


The heavens and the earth were created by the Word of God...the heavens and the earth were not created by the bible the written word about God?


The bible is not a member of the Godhead...Jesus "The Word" is a member of the Godhead.


Jesus the Living Word is to be worshipped...to worship the bible is to make an idol out of it.


The bible tells us that Jesus is perfect...Jesus does not tell us that the bible is perfect.


The bible tells us that Jesus is the only mediator between God and man…Jesus does not tell us  the Bible is the mediator between God and man.


The bible is a witness to the Living Word of God...Jesus Christ is the Living Word of God.


The the Scripture inspired by God was given to witness to Jesus the light of the world, so that people would see the light. Though the Scriptures originally given by God were given in inspiration, the copies that were translated into the bible were not thus, the bible is not the infallible, inerrant Word of God.


The Light of the world, the express image of God, not only came into the world, the world came into being by Him the Word, not through the bible the written word. Believing in the bible does not make one a son of God, believing in Jesus the Word does make one a son of God. Jesus is the Word of God that became flesh and dwelt among us full of grace and truth. The bible testifies to the fact that because of Jesus the Word...we have received truth upon truth and grace upon grace


Grace and Truth came Through Jesus the Word not through the bible the written word that points to the Living word. God's purpose for the bible is to point us to Jesus the Light of the world...the living Word of God.


John 5:39-40 tells us…You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; but it is they that testify on my behalf. Yet you refuse to come to me to have life.


The supreme value of the treasure that is the Scripture, is that it is the divine witness to people that the Word of God is Christ.

Biblicists who elevate the bible to be the Word of God are making the bible into a idol and in opposition to the purpose and plan of God, not only for the community of the redeemed, but also for the community of humanity. 

Does that mean we are not to have a high view of Scripture , of course not…but Jesus is Lord! It is Christ who is the Light of the world…not the bible, the bible is a light unto my path that leads me to Jesus the Word of God...it is not in itself the Word of God. 


It is the misuse and the abuse of the bible by man that does not deserve respect or given the honor as being the written word of God, let alone the Living Word of God.

Satan's deception of biblicism is a way of avoiding the supremacy of Christ regarding His community of the redeemed in order to keep them under the control of religion and in order to maintain the religious status quo.


"Indeed, the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And before him no creature is hidden, but all are naked and laid bare to the eyes of the one with whom we must render account." It is clear the writer is speaking of Christ in this passage in Hebrews...not the Bible.


Respect, honor and read the bible as the written word that is a witness of Jesus the Living Word of God...don't make an idol out of the bible by elevating it the position that ONLY CHRIST holds...The Living Word of God!
