“Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures”
by the word of truth,
The tool that God uses for our regeneration is the “word of truth” (Scripture and the gospel).
The Bible is the best means of declaring the gospel message.
There is no part or aspect of Scripture that is untrue. The Bible accurately recorded the lie of Satan. Satan’s lie was an untruth, but the accurate recording of it is true. We can believe the entire Bible because God the Holy Spirit wrote it by directing the human authors as they penned the passages.
“Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4).
“For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe” (1 Thessalonians 2:13).
Since the Bible is unadulterated truth, it is the supreme vehicle for declaring truths about God. Preaching and drama are good systems for declaring God’s truth, but they cannot measure up to God’s Word.
