Before you have an apoplectic fit, let me clear the table by saying emphatically:
1. I consider the Bible to be God’s revelation, fully authoritative, fully inspired, and fully reliable. For that reason, I read the Scriptures regularly. I mediate on them, seek the Lord through them, and study them. And to the both of you who have read my newer books [cough], I expound the Bible, quote it, cite it, teach it, and seek to unveil it in those books.
2. I’m also a person of prayer. I pray daily in one form or another. (As I’ve shared elsewhere, there are different kinds of prayer mentioned in Scripture: supplication, intercession, thanksgiving, fellowship, etc.) For the Jesus-follower, prayer is like breathing.
Are we clear now?
