This series has explored the indispensable nature of the Bible’s teaching on God’s Word, God himself, and God’s gospel. The Bible’s teaching on these three topics gives a useful paradigm for biblical discernment. Are there other hills that Christians should die on? Possibly, depending on the circumstances and the individuals involved. Questions about end times, about the church,…

Here is the third installment in the series, “Hills to Die On” and the second part on the importance of a high view of God’s word. Biblical discernment requires a high view of Scripture.
