2 Peter 3:5-7

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 5 For they are willingly ignorant of this, that the heavens were made long ago, and the earth formed out of the water and by water and by the word of God, [Jesus, whose name is "the word of God," created all the heavens and the earth, and all that is in them.]

 6 Through which [word and water] the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. [In the time of the flood, no scripture existed, and scriptures cannot create or destroy.]

 7 But by the same word the present heavens and the earth are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly people. [These three verses clearly prove that "the word" or "the word of God" is not the Bible; instead the word is the all-powerful, living creator and judge: Jesus, the word of God, who created all things in heaven and earth, and whose name is "the word of God." To think the Bible created the worlds is ridiculous; to think the Bible destroyed the world is ridiculous; to think the Bible can destroy ungodly people is ridiculous; and so it is ridiculous to call the Bible "the word." Jesus and "the word" are one in the same.]
