Warfield: inspiration

Wednesday, March 22, 2023
    [Jesus:] “David himself, speaking by the Holy Spirit, declared:
        ’The Lord said to my Lord:
            “Sit at my right hand
        until I put your enemies
            under your feet.”’”
        —Mark 12:36 (NIV)
    If criticism has made such discoveries as to necessitate the abandonment of the doctrine of plenary inspiration, it is not enough to say that we are compelled to abandon only a “particular theory of inspiration,” though that is true enough. We must go on to say that that “particular theory of inspiration” is the theory of the apostles and of the Lord, and that in abandoning it we are abandoning them.
    ... Benjamin B. Warfield (1851-1921), The Presbyterian and Reformed Review, Volume 4, 1893, Philadelphia: Presbyterian and Reformed Review, 1893, p. 185-186 (see the book)
    See also Mark 12:36; 2 Sam. 23:2; Matt. 22:43; Luke 1:70; Acts 28:25; Rom. 3:2; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; Heb. 4:12; 2 Pet. 1:21
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, do I fully believe Your word?
