Standing on the world or the Word?

Here are a couple more drops of yesterday’s dose. If the Word of God is really where the church looks for authority, then we need to let the Word be that authority. It makes no difference if science or scholarship appear to support the Bible. In fact, if we look for history or geology or archaeology to verify what the Bible says, then our real authority isn’t the Bible--it’s history, geology, and archaeology. It all comes down to whether we find our foundation in the World or in the Word.
