We are looking at this in our men’s Bible study and I wanted to make sure and capture it.

Why I believe the Bible is true, authoritative, infallible, inerrant and perfectly sufficient in all matters of faith and practice
The title of this post is meant to be provocative, particularly in this day that Scripture is being attacked and perverted. In reality, Scripture has always been twisted, disparaged and misused. It claims to be the very Word of God, and there is nothing the Adversary loves more than to cast doubt on the truth of that Word.
From the very beginning, Satan has questioned His Word:
Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the LORD God had made.
He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’” But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (ESV)
Briefly, I want to outline the reasons that I believe that the Bible is the authoritative source of truth (ASoT):
- Jesus authenticates it
- The Holy Spirit lives in me and testifies to it
- The Holy Spirit has stewarded it throughout the ages
- The harmony of its message across time, cultures, and languages
- The historical evidence of preservation

I was very convicted by the message this last Sunday concerning stewardship of the body.
I am going to capture my progress and some thoughts as I enter into this 6 week challenge.
Week 1 challenge:
Daily - as many push-ups and sit-ups as possible in 2 minutes per exercise - I did 35 knee pushups, because I can’t do regular and 45 crunches, because I can’t pull myself up :(
Do at least 1 5k (3.1 miles) this week - I did 2 miles today.
Weakness is currently leaking freely out of my knee, hip, and shoulders, right now!
I am in terrible shape.
I am also not a very good TikTok-er :)
