If we believe in such a God, it is also probable that He would, out of love and for His own purposes and designs, reveal Himself to men.
Because of man’s obvious condition in sin and his obvious inability to meet his spiritual needs (regardless of all his learning and technological advances), special revelation revealed in a God-breathed book is not only possible, logical, and probable, but a necessity.
In the course of time, the terms canon and canonical came to be applied to the catalogue or list of sacred books distinguished and honored as belonging to God’s inspired Word. It is important to note that religious councils at no time had any power to cause books to be inspired, rather they simply recognized that which God had inspired at the exact moment the books were written.
Jews and conservative Christians alike have recognized the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament as inspired.
Writers might enjoy a good gossip or a crazy party once in a while, but the act of writing and the nexus of our lives is pure solitude.
It is choosing introversion over extroversion, lonely hours/days/weeks/years over fun and sociability. Talent, as charming as it sounds, amounts to no more than 12 per cent of the process. The remaining 8 per cent is “luck” or “zeitgeist” – in short, things that are not in our hands. If there is no love between the author and the story, there is no love between the reader and the story.
The word canon is used to describe those books recognized as inspired of God.
If we believe that God exists as an almighty God, then revelation and inspiration are clearly possible.Their canonicity was inherent within them, since they came from God. Even if a letter of Paul were discovered, it would not be canonical.People and councils only recognized and acknowledged what is true because of the intrinsic inspiration of the books as they were written. Nevertheless, men and councils did have to consider which books should be recognized as part of the canon, for there were some candidates that were not inspired. In the process of deciding and collecting, it would not be unexpected that some disputes would arise about some of the books. However, these debates in no way weaken the authenticity of the truly canonical books, nor do they give status to those which were not inspired by God. After all, Paul must have written many letters during his lifetime in addition to the ones that are in the New Testament; yet the church did not include them in the canon. That’s the freedom we should not allow anyone to take from us.The fact of the inspiration of the Bible as God’s special revelation to man naturally leads to the question (since many other religious books were written during both the Old and New Testament periods) what particular books are canonical, that is, what books are inspired and should be recognized as a part of God’s authoritative revelation? Are any books included that should not be in our Bible?
