Why We Believe the Bible is True (selective scriptures) by John MacArthur.
Indifference to Scripture is not a mark of regeneration. Indifference to Scripture is not a mark of salvation. Indifference to Scripture is a mark of spiritual death. And I believe that in all generations, including this one, God’s true church, the genuinely redeemed, are desperately hungry for the truth. They want the Word fed to them. They want the Word taught to them, preached to them. They want the Word explained to them with all its richness and depth.
This society wants everything but the Scripture, and the church is content, seemingly, to give them everything but the Scripture. And those who hold to the authority and the priority of Scripture, those who hold to the authority and priority of sound doctrine, those who are sober and serious and diligent students and preachers of divine revelation are ridiculed by the world, by the culture and by many in the church, although I am convinced the true believers, the true believers long for and do all they can to find those who will feed them the truth. more
