What Do You Believe About the Bible?

by Pulpit Helps

Morris H. Chapman, Southern Baptist leader, suggests that congregations uncertain of how their pastors stand on the Bible should pose this series of questions to them:

"Do you believe salvation comes by faith in Christ and Him alone? Is there any other way to be saved?"

"Do you believe the Bible to be God's absolute truth in all matters to which it speaks?"

"Do you believe the narratives of Scripture to be historically and factually accurate?"

"Do you believe every Christian should be a soul-winner?"

"What is your passion in life?"

"If a person is truthful, these questions, and others like them, will reveal the condition of an individual's heart before God," Chapman said. "The difference is in the belief system."
