Parts of the church seem to practice a kind of bibliolatry in which the Bible is worshiped rather than the God of the Bible being worshiped. I think it is fair to say: “The Bible is not God.” There may be a new Trinity in the church culture. Do we worship the Father, the Son, and the Holy Bible? We must remember that Scripture is God’s word, but it should not be the point of our worship but will inform us how to worship better. Scripture certainly leads us to life. We should allow Scripture to speak to us devotionally, as well as have our devotions informed from scholarly resources. Let Scripture be the vehicle that God intended it to be! Scripture is literature, which informs us of who God is, what his deeds are, what they mean, who we are, how we relate to God, and how we relate to others as we live in his Story.
