The Bible and Experience

Nothing is more foundational to the way in which you live than how you regard the Bible — how you approach it and how you understand it. This has a direct influence on how you actually live. When the Bible tells you something happened, it really happened. This has to do with the truth of the Bible. But even if you believe it, what role should that have in your life? This has to do with the authority of the Bible. 

Today we’re going to look at the authority of the Bible in the second letter of Peter. There are three things to learn: why the Bible has authority, why that’s a good thing, and how that authority works in our lives.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 20, 2015. Series “What We Believe: Foundations”. Scripture: 2 Peter 1:12-21.
