Quote of the Day: Where Inspiration really lies

What Hodge calls his doctrine of plenary of inspiration misses the point that Biblical authority doesn’t rest on any intrinsic value the words of the Biblical texts may or may not have on any given topic. The Bible’s authority rests upon the power of the Holy Spirit to use the text to enliven the community of believers. It is an extrinsic authority, foreign to the text itself, and superlative to the communities of faith who find within it testimony to the power and presence of the Living God with those whom God chooses.
