The Purpose Of The Bible

16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.
17 God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17(NLT)

In this article, I am going to explore the above verses on the true purpose of the Scriptures. The above verses are quite popular even among religious churches. They know how to quote them but none of them are able to understand the true meaning because they have been blinded by the lies of theology.

I have referred the Bible as an engineering book. 2 Timothy 3:16 is my proof to substantiate my claim. It is very clearly stated in the verse that all Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. In other words, God wants us to know that the Bible is meant to be used. The Bible is a tool or a servant created by God to serve our needs, in particular to show us what is right and wrong.

The Bible is never meant to be our master. We are not to worship it. We are use it just as we use our other tools like hammers, knives, screw drivers etc. Sure, we use it as our guide but we are still its boss. There were times I looked at maps to help me to go to certain places but that does not mean the map is above me. It is still my tool even though I “obey” its guidance. Likewise, for the Bible. Therefore, we must not allow ourselves to be deceived by the theologians who tell us that we must obey the Bible as though it is our master. As Christians we use our Bibles. We do not worship it.

What do we use the Bible for? Verse 16 tells us that we use it to teach us what is right and wrong. Let me give you an example. The Bible is very clear in telling us that as believers we destiny is to prosper in every area in our lives. This means all of us believers must have a lot of money, good health, long live and be successful in everything we do. Our role is to compare our lives to the standard of the Bible. If we find any shortfall like not having enough money, not healthy enough or not successful enough then the next step is search the Bible for solutions and put them to work. This is what the last sentence in Verse 16 means.

“It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.”

In short, the Bible is our servant who serves us by teaching us what is right and wrong in our lives. For the wrong things, this servant will teach us the solutions. If you do not have enough money, it will teach you how to make more money. If you are sick, it will teach you how to get healed. You can never find anywhere in the Bible that tells us that God is the pervert who gives people thorns in the flesh to show them his sufficient grace. Our God is not a pervert and the Bible is the proof that He is always on our side to help us to get everything we ever want.

Our God’s desire is to help us to fulfil our desires. Why would he want to do that? The first reason is he loves us and the second reason is in Verse 17.

17 God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.
2 Timothy 3:17(NLT)

Our God wants to bless us so abundantly for us to do every good work. Please note that this is not blackmail. The verse never says God demands us to do good works or he will do perverted things to us. However this does not stop heretics like theologians and doctrine worshippers from turning this verse into one.

In case someone wants to know on why would I regularly refer to the heretics, my intention to dispel the myth that theologians and doctrine worshippers represent Christianity. The truth is they don’t know anything about the Bible. The only thing they know is to pervert the contents of the Bible to support their heresy that God is a pervert. In the minds of the theologians and doctrine worshippers, God is a pervert who likes to do perverted things to people to steal kill and destroy while Satan comes that we may have life and have it more abundantly.

As true Christians, we will never accuse our God as a pervert. Our God is good and the meaning of the word “good” is still the same as what we can find in the dictionary.

2 Timothy 3:17 tells us that God blesses us to prepare and equip us to do every good work. As Christians we want to do good works because it is our nature to do so. Our God is only helping us to do what we want to do. This is definitely not blackmail.

What are the good works we want to do? Since the meaning of the word “good” does not change, it must be works that bring prosperity, health, long life, success, joy and peace to others. To summarize:
 God makes us prosperous for us to bring prosperity to others.
 God makes us healthy for us to bring health to others.
 God gives us long lives for us to bring long lives to others.
 God gives us success for us to bring success to others.
 God gives us joy for us to bring joy to others.
 God gives us peace for us to bring peace to others.

In conclusion, the Bible is an engineering book.
