John R. Rice (December 11, 1895 – December 29, 1980) Preacher … evangelist … revivalist … editor … counselor to the thousands … friend to millions—that was Dr. John R. Rice, whose accomplishments were nothing short of miraculous. Known as “America’s Dean of Evangelists,” Dr. Rice made a mighty impact upon the nation’s religious life for some sixty years in great citywide campaigns and in Sword of the Lord conferences.
Like many other strong fighters for the faith, Rice was also marked with a sincere spirit of compassion. Those who knew him best knew a man who loved them. In preaching, in prayer and in personal life, Rice wept over sinners and with saints.
The Infallible Inspiration of the Bible
“Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” – Mark 8:38.
4. God Gave Moses “The Words of The Lord”
What does the Bible say about verbal inspiration? In Exodus 24:3, 4, we read:
“And Moses came and told the people all the [The thoughts of the Lord? No, all the words], and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the [They are taking responsibility that the words they have heard are words from God] words which the LORD hath said will we do.
“And Moses wrote all the [that is, when Genesis was written; that is, when the beginning of the Pentateuch was written] words of the LORD, and rose up early in the morning . . .”
Now look at verse 8:
“And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words.”
Thus you see the Pentateuch is inspired word for word. God gave the words.
