The Scripture is not a god. God speaks to us through Scripture. The Scripture is only authoritative when the Holy Spirit speaks to us through it. When interpreted by the carnal mind, the Scripture is filtered into error. This is the reason that there are so many denominations all claiming to have the correct interpretation of Scripture and all rejecting what the Scripture says about its own interpretation. (some caveats about hearing God's Voice)

Bibliolatry is a term that has been used since 1847 by many denominations to refer to the worship of the Bible rather than the worship of God. It is idolatry to worship the Bible, though God speaks to us through the Bible. The Bible is not God. This fact is obvious to most Christians, but people become confused.

It is equally a sin of idolatry and much more dangerous to worship the human mind and to think that the human mind can produce knowledge without the benefit of observation or revelation. This is known as Rationalism. Most often, Bibliolatry is mixed with a high level of Rationalism. (Read about the false religion of Rationalism.) It is then possible for a person to claim a high level of authority for their rationalized theology.

Catch phrases include: "You must learn to trust the Bible." "The Bible is our souce of authority."

We must learn to trust God Who wrote the Bible and speaks to us through the Bible. God is our source of authority and He has given us His Word in written form. Whenever we read this Word, we hear the Utterance of God, provided we are willing to obey God. When we have our own mind made up, we hear nothing from the Lord, though we would read the Bible all day long.

It is equally a sin of idolatry and much more dangerous than worshiping the Bible to worship the human mind in the form of intellectualism. (Read about the false religion of Intellectualism.)

It is equally a sin of idolatry and much more dangerous than worshiping the Bible to follow the cult of Scientism. God specifically mentions this cult in commit fornication:" target="_blank" href="">Numbers 15:39... seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring. Idolatry is spiritual adultery. (Read about the false religion of Scientism.)

All Scripture is God-breathed. The Scripture cannot be broken. God has preserved the Scripture through time in such a way that it is trustworthy and it is authoritative in determining doctrine. Of course, it must be revealed. The Holy Spirit reveals through the Bible. There are minor discrepancies in the more than 10,000 texts that are in existence of the Textus Receptus. None of these discrepancies affect any doctrine. Some have attacked the Bible based on the fact that translations do not always agree, but we have the original text, and now we have the original text in electronic format. There are arguments about interpretations of the Bible, leaving the unbelievers confused and wondering who to believe, but these arguments exist because of the fleshly minds of human beings and these arguments disappear when the orders of Scripture are followed for receiving the revelation.

All of this is true, but the Bible is not God. No one can read the Bible without having God speak to the person. Any person who reads the Bible will receive a benefit beyond the words on the page because the Living Word of God, The Christ, will be speaking to them through the written words on the page. Wherever the Bible is read, Christ is. Some people, however, have an tremendous resistance to the moving of the Holy Spirit. They have become puffed up with pride in their thinking to think that human reason, particularly their own, can figure out spiritual things. The Bible is, after all, a spiritual thing that God created. All Scripture is God-breathed.

Someone may say, "The minor discrepancies in the Bible can be discerned and corrected only by human reason, not by documentation from the original copies." Whose reason are we to trust? One person reasons one way and another reasons another way. And they both support their reasoning using logic and they both point out that the other person's logic is wrong or that the other person is making the wrong assumptions. Actually, that is not the case. No part of the Bible can really be understood correctly by human reason, even if we were able to transport ourselves back in time and read the original text. You see that most people could not correctly interpret the words of Jesus while Jesus was speaking those words. The Bible is clear that spiritual things must be spiritually discerned. That is, the Holy Spirit must reveal them to us. Our minds are deceitful and desperately wicked. This is the very reason that God has once again restored the office of the apostle to the Church, for it is given to them to receive the revelation, not as individuals but as a revelation that is confirmed because the same revelation is given to them all as it was in Acts 15.
