What the Bible Says
Notes by Mary Van Nattan unless marked otherwise.
Luke 8:11 ...The seed is the word of God.
2Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: We do not need the "original Greek" or some scholar's corrections of the Bible. God has promised to give all things for life and godliness, so He must give is a preserved Bible or else He is a liar! Romans 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. (The promises of verse 4 are attached dierctly to verse 3.)
2Peter 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. We escape corruption of the world by partaking of the divine nature. We do this through the word of God. Thus, we cannot be clean without pure scripture. John 15:3, Job 14:4, 1 Peter 1:23. John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
