Jesus told His disciples to continue in His word – because as they did so, they would know the truth, and the truth would make them free! So, what we see from Scripture is that the seeds of truth yield a harvest of freedom!

For example, once people realize that the whole of Scripture is trustworthy – that it is true even where it contradicts so-called science (like evolution) – they open up to the entire word of God. And the word of God is the “sword of the Spirit” (Ephesians 6:17) which moves and frees hearts and minds from the lies and chains of the devil. The Spirit brings liberty, freedom (2 Corinthians 3:17)!

If we stray from what the Bible teaches, we will find ourselves believing lies, and we will become bound by chains of darkness or false philosophy. We will be unable to discern right from wrong and, therefore, under the control of those who hate God. “Armed with cruel hate”, Satan, in fact, is described as the one who “deceiveth the whole world” in Revelation 12:9.

The abandoning of biblical inerrancy leads us down a slippery slope. The constant pressure of a culture which embraces evolutionism, hedonism, cultural Marxism and all sorts of false “isms” has taken its toll. Why believe the Bible about creation when “science” says evolution trumps creation? And if the Bible is wrong about creation, why believe it about family structure and dynamics? Why believe the Bible about homosexual relations or gender identity in the face of pagan arguments for legitimizing the perverse, if the Bible can’t be trusted?

And if that’s the case, why not just pick and choose those parts of the Bible that “make sense”, or that we like? In other words, if the Bible can’t really be trusted, why not just conform the Bible and the church to the sensibilities of the society rather than transform people’s minds to the truth of Scripture?!

All of Scripture begins to unravel for those who start down this slippery slope. Pretty soon, they are left with darkness instead of discernment, with form instead of function, and with platitudes instead of power.
