The Authority of the Bible ‘NOT’ the Church.

A @Christadelphians Video: Description: The Bible is the Word of God. There are many churches which have added other writings and teachings to the words of the Bible distorting its true message. We need to read the Bible for ourselves to understand what God wants from us. Summary The discussion centres on the authority of the Bible over the church, exploring its accessibility, composition, and teachings. It contrasts the Bible’s singular authority with the additional doctrines introduced by various Christian denominations over time. Emphasis is placed on the Bible’s unchanging nature and the importance of individual engagement with its teachings.


The discussion delves into the sole authority of the Bible over the church, tracing through history the emergence of additional teachings within Christianity. It highlights the importance of individual interpretation of the Bible’s teachings and warns against the distortion caused by supplementary doctrines.


  • 📖 The Bible’s authority surpasses that of the church, a significant topic given the historical limitations on access to the Bible.
  • 🕰️ Throughout history, limited access to the Bible led to reliance on church authorities, hindering personal interpretation.
  • 📜 The Bible, comprising Old and New Testaments, reflects a consistent message despite diverse authorship over 1500 years.
  • 🏛️ Churches like Catholicism have introduced additional doctrines alongside the Bible, such as sacred traditions and papal infallibility.
  • 🔄 Doctrines like the Trinity and infant baptism emerged through councils and later developments, diverging from original Christian teachings.
  • 🙏 The Bible emphasises God’s unchanging nature, challenging the need for additional doctrines beyond its teachings.
  • 💡 Individual reading of the Bible is encouraged for understanding and living according to God’s plan, independent of external teachings.
  • ✝️ The session concludes with an affirmation of the Bible as God’s word, urging readers to discern its message amidst supplementary teachings.
