The Bible Says . . .

It has long been ICR's position that God's revealed and written Word cannot (and must not) be changed. Sola Scriptura was the battle cry of the Reformation revival that led to both the great missionary movement and the modern scientific age.

  • God has exalted His written Word by decree and majesty.
    Psalm 138:2; Isaiah 55:11; Revelation 1:3
  • God demands accurate and precise reading of His written Word.
    II Samuel 22:31; Psalm 19:7-8; Proverbs 30:5-6; Nehemiah 8:8
     
  • God's written Word must not be altered or deconstructed in any way.
    Matthew 5:18-19; John 10:35; II Peter 1:20-21; Revelation 22:18-19
     
  • God's written Word is eternally valid and supernaturally protected.
    Matthew 24:35; Psalm 119:89; Psalm 119:160; Isaiah 40:8; I Peter 1:23
     
  • God's written Word is the standard of both righteousness and judgment.
    John 12:44-50; II Timothy 3:16-17
     
  • God's pleasure and will (truth) is revealed through the Scriptures.
    II Peter 1:21; John 17:17

It is obvious, therefore, that the text of Scripture presents a very high view of itself. All that follows in our deliberations regarding the Creation will flow from how we view Scripture. The higher regard we have for the words of the text, the more careful we will be with the interpretation of the text. The more we use other words and passages of Scripture to define and clarify a given text of Scripture, the less we will be inclined to allow extra-Biblical information to alter the obvious rendering of a word or a passage. The further away from the clear reading and face-value of a passage an interpretation becomes, the more likely such an interpretation will be subject to human error and come into conflict with other axioms of God's Word.

ICR's public and academic insistence on this position is being resisted strongly by some, even in the evangelical world. Pray with us and share with us as we challenge those who question the true facts of history as revealed in God's Word.
