Not meaning to imply you didn't, Jason. And yes, a great first question.

I assumed he had seen the whole thing, but understood the rest. I'll edit.

comment Does Jesus ever claim to be God, or the son of God?
The link was put in by someone else. But there isn't any significant difference between the two wordings - the key is in "I am".

Hi Jason, and welcome to the Christianity Stack Exchange. Nice to have you with us. Please have a look at the FAQ if you haven't done so already.

comment How does the Bible differentiate between sickness and sin?
You're saying that Job's comforters spoke the truth, but were nonethless rebuked for it because they couldn't be sure it was the truth?

comment How does the Bible differentiate between sickness and sin?
Job's 'comforters' insisted that Job must have committed a sin to be visited with the diseases and other misfortunes, and God rebukes them for saying that.

comment How does the Bible differentiate between sickness and sin?
"Disease comes always as consequences of sins" is directly contradicted by John 9, and the whole book of Job.

A subtle word shift might explain some of the confusion here. Adams writes 'Calling drunkenness a "disease" or a "sickness" rather than a "sin" ...' and he is right. Alcoholism is a disease (in my opinion) but alcoholism and drunkenness are very different. One may be drunk without being an alcoholic, and one may (with much willpower and support) be an alcoholic without being drunk.

comment Is the Bible an inexhaustible source?
That is precisely my point. The word of God (Bible plus other stuff) is inexhaustible, but that doesn't mean the Bible is inexhaustible.

comment Is the Bible an inexhaustible source?
The fact that God is inexhaustible (which several of your quotes actually mean) doesn't mean that the Bible is inexhaustible.

It's a common mistake to assume that references to "the word of God" are always referring to the Bible, but that frequently isn't the case.
