2 Timothy 3:16 - "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." 'Given by inspiration' is literally "God-breathed." God was actively involved in the revelation of His truth to the apostles and prophets, who wrote it down. The Author of the bible is God Himself. Thus Scripture is true in all that it affirms. The person who masters the Word of God will never lose his or her way.
