    Mark 13:31
    Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.

    Psalms 119:160
    All your words are true;
    all your righteous laws are eternal.

    Isaiah 40:8
    The grass withers, the flower fades,
    But the word of our God stands forever.

    Acts 13:44-50
    And the next Sabbath nearly the whole city assembled to hear the word of God. 45 But when the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy, and began contradicting the things spoken by Paul, and were blaspheming. 46 And Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly and said, "It was necessary that the word of God should be spoken to you first; since you repudiate it, and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we are turning to the Gentiles. 47 "For thus the Lord has commanded us,

    'I have placed You as a light for the Gentiles,
    That You should bring salvation to the end of the earth.'"

    48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they began rejoicing and glorifying the word of the Lord; and as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed. 49 And the word of the Lord was being spread through the whole region.

    The word of the Lord(Jesus) is the word of God. More proof Jesus is God in Acts.


    The word of the Lord, the word of Christ is the same as the word of God. The word of the Lord(Jesus) was spread throughout the book of Acts as the very word of God and they are used interchangeably in Acts. Below we see the word of the Lord = Jesus words are the very words of God. This can be said of no mere man but only a man who is also God as Scripture declares about Christ.

    Colossians 3:16
    Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you,

    Romans 10:17
    Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.

    2 Thessalonians 3:1-3
    Finally, brothers, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you. 2 And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men, for not everyone has faith. 3 But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.

    1 Peter 1:23-25
    For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. 24 For,

    "All men are like grass,
    and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
    the grass withers and the flowers fall,
    25 but the word of the Lord stands forever."

    And this is the word that was preached to you.

    1-Can we say let the word of Paul richly dwell in you
    2-Can we say let the word of Peter richly dwell in you
    3-Can we say let the word of David richly dwell in you
    4-Can we say let the word of Moses richly dwell in you

    the answer to the above is a resounding NO you cannot say it.

    But you can say let the word of God, the word of the Lord, the word of Christ richly dwell in you because they have the exact/identical meaning. Indeed the living Word is Christ. In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God.

    hope this helps !!!

    I would ask you, @Christophany, how you answer the contention of the Jehovah's Witnesses who say that 1 Corinthians 8:6 means that Jesus isn't God?

    The words of all of these people, as they are recorded in the Bible, are the word of God.

    Isn't that (and all that proceeds it in the OP) rather obvious?

    Is there something you were trying to get at? Usually people have a reason for posting things.

    JW's always have one verse that they have some askew off track view of and they run with it until they find another.

    in the 70's it was they were the 144,000 in revelations and then they dropped that one then they stay on some idea that Jesus was an angle or something like that, they may still be running with that one. they do have their own version of the bible which does exclude some text that show that Jesus is the Word of God as explain in John:

    KJV
    Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 
    Joh 1:2  The same was in the beginning with God. 
    Joh 1:3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 

    of which:

    1Co 8:6  But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. 

    agrees.


    those who don't know the Lord God via Jesus Christ make up their own ideas of what they think or believe God ought to be, and use scripture to agree with that theology. since the newspaper and now media the public is conditioned to see tunnel vision rather the whole picture. its easy to say this means this and go to another verse and say this means that and nether are true. and its human nature to fall for it, the proof of that is in the garden at the tree. the serpent didn't deny there was a God, he just got them to believe and trust something other then God who stated the commandment about the commandment.

    I daresay we can acknowledge the specialness and sacredness of scripture without having to elevate scribes & translators up to the level as if they were infallible deity themselves.

    I have stopped engaging the poster as NOTHING is ever satisfactory and always insists on having the last word, comment etc......

    It is not edifying in any way, shape or form and a teacher is also a good student and is always learning.

    So I have moved on and wish the person the best and no hard feelings.

    There are many whom I have learned things from and seeing things from their perspective and insight even though we might disagree on some things. So just because there are disagreements on the non essentials/salvific issues doesn't mean we cannot learn from each other as iron sharpens iron.

    hope this helps !!!

    All Scripture is inspired by God as per 2 Tim 3:16.
    Peter declares ALL Paul's epistles are the word of God. 2 Peter 3:16

    Yes, all SCRIPTURE is unless the author says it is not scripture or inspired by God. Yes, Peter verified that Paul is indeed an apostle and his epistles are scripture. That was a general statement. Paul was specific in what is and what is not.
