Why do we have the Bible?

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
            Paul stated the Bible’s purpose in 2 Timothy 3.  He said the Bible was breathed into writers who exhaled on to the paper to write the truth.  So, since it come directly from God then it has some purpose in our lives.
1.      Teaching – to instruct people on truth
2.      Rebuking – to chastise people who are doing wrong
3.      Correcting – to give slight adjustments to someone’s life
4.      Training – to strengthen someone for service
5.      Equipping – to give someone the tools they need to do good things
