It is my presupposition/claim that the bible is the 'Word of God' - meaning that God is the author.
I also use the presupposition that God is Good all the time. (Good is defined as moral perfection)
Some might not agree.

I looked at this study: http://www.answersin...hority-god-said

and it asked

What is the basis for the authority we claim the Bible has? (Hint: If you erase God, who is left to quote when you need answers?)

Is the answer to this question truth or Absolute truth?

Interesting Rico, what distinction make you between the "living word" and the written word? do you think there is a distinction to be made?

The Word was made flesh, the Word is alive. (See John 1:14 for some context)
Also found this book from 1909: http://www.mun.ca/re...dasc/LITW01.HTM

So your saying "God's Word" is alive? Interesting, I'll study more.

Amazingly enough, the word used in describing Christ in John chapter one is “Logos”

and the ETYMOLOGY of the word “logic”?

Middle English, from Old French logique, from Latin logica, from Greek logik (tekhn ), (art) of reasoning, logic, feminine of logikos, of reasoning, from logos, reason; see leg- in Indo-European roots.

Ergo, The “Logic” was made flesh, the “Logic” is alive… Just a thought.

While 'word' is directly translated from the greek word 'logos', 'Logic' only finds it's root/origin in the actual greek word.

'Logic' and 'logos' do not actually mean the same thing and therefore cannot be interchanged.

This is not to imply that the 'word' is not 'logical'....it is just not described as such in the John reference.

Peace

The word logic comes from the word logos (i.e. is a derivative for the word logos). In other words, it derives its meaning from the word logos....

God's word is alive because he is alive. "The word was made flesh" refers to his spirit annointing the body of Jesus. Although,a man could speak the same words, his words would not speak life because the man does not have life because of his sins and transgressions. Thats why the disciples did'nt preach until they were filled with the holy spirit. Until then,they were not only still dead, but full of their own knowledge and not God's.


Enjoy.
