Rev. Sean Kilgo, pastor at the Northeast Kansas Lutheran Partnership, goes “Back to the Forge” with host Rev. Timothy Appel to discuss the seven attributes of Scripture.
What do we mean when we say that the Bible is God’s Word? How does the devil attack our faith in the Word of God? Knowing and confessing the seven attributes of Holy Scripture provides a strong defense. 1) Inspiration: Jesus said it. 2) Inerrancy: Jesus doesn’t make mistakes. 3) Infallibility: Jesus can’t lie. 4) Authority: Jesus said so. 5) Efficacy: Jesus’ words do stuff. 6) Perspicuity: Jesus means it. 7) Sufficiency: Jesus said enough.

Sharper Iron, hosted by Rev. Timothy Appel, looks at the text of Holy Scripture both in its broad context and its narrow detail, all for the sake of proclaiming Christ crucified and risen for sinners. Two pastors engage with God’s Word to sharpen not only their own faith and knowledge, but the faith and knowledge of all who listen.
