"The Results of Believing in the Word of God"
INTRODUCTION: In 1976, Harold Lindsell, wrote a book
enti'tliiL *tl Rattle far the Bible.-" In this book he
wrote that the subject of biblical inerrancy should be
the most important theological subject of this age. He

this and would all that all morality and moral conscious-

of the Word of God.' We spoke about the authority, the
priority, the central place, the reverence for, the response

God in belief, this week we will see how it affects their
lives. It is one thing to believe the Word of God, however,
it is another to allow that belief to become practice to
where your lifestyle is altered because of that belief.
This lorning I want to preach on, 'The Results of Believing
in the Word of God." What will happen in your life when you
really believe, I mean really believe, that the Bible is the
actual Word of God? In this text today we will see four re-
sults of these people believing in Word of God. These four
results will also be in your life and line when we really
believe in the Word of God:
