2 Timothy 3:16 is a main verse to go to when defending the Word of God. We learn these basic attributes of the Word of God from this verse:

The Bible is:

  • able to be learned and understood
  • able to be taught and explained
  • able to be taught to children
  • a collection of sacred writings
  • able to make you wise for salvation
  • teaches faith in Christ Jesus
  • completely breathed out by God
  • profitable
  • teaches
  • reproves
  • corrects
  • trains in righteousness
  • makes the man of God complete
  • equips for every good work

“You, however, have followed my teaching, my conduct, my aim in life, my faith, my patience, my love, my steadfastness, my persecutions and sufferings that happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, and at Lystra—which persecutions I endured; yet from them all the Lord rescued me. Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:10-17 ESV)
