Thesis 1: Christ the Word

The Bible is the Word of God.[1] The Word of God is Divine.[2] Every Word of God is sovereign over us.[3] We Worship God’s Word.[4] Christ is the Word.[5]

The purpose of posting Theses is to foment debate. Comments, questions, and criticisms are always welcome.

I must confess, however, that I am not interested in long drawn-out debates over the deity of Christ. That debate is over, as far as I'm concerned. This Thesis, and a couple that follow, are foundational for future Theses, and are posted as premises for upcoming arguments, rather than an invitation for debate on these initial Theses.

If you're looking for answers, or have a comment, that's great, but if you're looking for detailed, protracted debate on this subject, you probably won't find it here.

It is as necessary to accept that the Bible claims that Christ is Divine to understand the message of the Bible as it is to understand that Aesop claims that wolves are dangerous to understand Aesop's story about The Boy Who Cried "Wolf!" The deity of Christ is just a part of the Biblical story. (Not a perfect analogy, I admit.)
