The mode of operation by which the Holy Spirit worked with the authors in order to assure an infallible and inerrant product is a matter of much speculation among theologians. The mystery remains inscrutable, but the process is intelligible and the parameters are definable.
In view of what the Bible says and shows about itself, a definition of divine inspiration can be formulated. First, the elements of a definition will be set forth; then, the definition will be derived from them. There appear to be six basic elements stated or implied in the Bible.
Biblical inspiration is not only verbal (located in the words), but it is also plenary, meaning that it extends to every part of the words and all they teach or imply. Inspiration does guarantee the truth of all the Bible teaches, implies, or entails (spiritually or factually).
Numerous passages make it evident that the locus of revelation and inspiration is the written Word, the Scriptures (Gk: grapha), not simply the idea or even the writer.
The Bible claims to be a book from God, a message with divine authority. Indeed, the biblical writers say they were moved by the Holy Spirit to utter His very words—that their message came by revelation so that what they wrote was breathed out (inspired) by God Himself.
Life is animate being, and once it begins it inexorably leads to death. At least this is the case after the fall of Adam in the Garden of Eden. (Gen. 2:17; 3:1-6) This will not be the case after Jesus' Second Coming. Death is a cessation of life, an irreversible state that is characterized by the cessation of all those processes that sustain life.
Does God Exist? Can We Know There Is a God? A large class of theologians and philosophers deny that the existence of God is susceptible of proof. This is done on different grounds.
The existence of God is so obviously manifested, by everything within and around us, the belief in that existence is so natural, so suited to what we see and what we need, that it comes to be generally adopted.
