IS THE BIBLE COMPLETE?
By Joel Finck
Scripture Reading: Colossians 1:.25, Revelation 22:18, 19
As incredible as it may seem, there are still various groups within Christendom that do not believe the Bible is God's complete revelation to man. The Roman Catholic church has its traditions of the "fathers" which are supposedly on par with the Bible. Many charismatic groups believe that modern day visions and prophecies still supplement the Word of God. What saith the Scriptures to these things?
In Colossians 1:25, Paul writes, "Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God." The wordfulfill here is from the Greekpleroo, meaning to fill completely. In this context, Paul is referring to the mystery (verse 26), which indeed fills up or completes God's full revelation to man. The Old Testament prophets and the Jewish apostles such as Peter, James and John were given revelation pertaining to God's dealings with Israel and the kingdom program; butthey were not given one word about God's heavenly program, the Body of Christ. This only was committed to Paul; and according to our text, Paul completed the Word of God.
What about the prophetic program? Is God's revelation concerning His earthly, kingdom plan also complete? Yes, for in Revelation 22:18 & 19, we read the sober warning not to "add unto" nor "take away from the words of the book of this prophecy." We can rest assured that the Word of God is complete and that it is the final authority for faith and practice for the child of God, especially as we "rightly divide the word of truth,"
