Man is in a most desperate condition because of Adamís sin. Man is inclined away from God, ignorant of Godís purposes and methods of salvation and incapable of returning to God in His own strength. God is love, omnipotent, righteous and just as well as holy, omniscient, loving and kind and omnipresent.
Therefore, it is not reasonable that a God Who is love would leave man in such a desperate condition and not give him a guide that would reveal to him
- Knowledge of God.
- Knowledge of Godís plan for man.
- Knowledge of how man became alienated from God.
- Knowledge of how to be reconciled to God.
This guide for man is the Bible. It is a written revelation of God. Godís omnipotence makes its production possible. Godís omniscience enables its content. Godís holiness justifies its necessity. Godís righteousness and justice assures its inerrancy.
