There is another thing you need to know about the inspiration of the Bible: It is objective truth. What do I mean. It is true whether you like it or not. It is true whether you feel it or not. It is truth whether you experience it or not. It is truth whether you’re in the mood for it or not. It is objective truth. It has nothing to do with whether your feel it, into it, do you like it, do you not like it, do you want it, do you not want it—it doesn’t matter. Martin Luther said, The Bible? I don’t have to defend it. It is like a lion. All I have to do is set it loose; it will take care of itself.” It is objective truth.

It is sort of like gravity. You don’t have to like gravity. You don’t have to get excited about gravity. You don’t even have to believe in gravity. But if you get up on a 3-story building and jump off, gravity will let you know that it is objective truth. It will let you know that it has nothing to do with whether you’re in a gravity mode today. If you go up high enough and jump far enough, gravity will let you know that it is the last truth you will ever learn! It is objective truth. It’s not whether you want to obey the Word, you’re into obeying the Word—it is objective truth.
