 Dear Neels:
I don't want to offend you, however, I think that your approach to this thing is
not very wise. You will not persuade anyone of anything. As you said, you only
get people upset, so what's the point.  I "expose" the Christian Church and their
doctrines for very specific reasons under special commands, but I don't see this
in what you are attempting to do. I do not set out to rub some doctrine of mine
into others faces.
 
Besides, I think that your arguments are extremely weak if not unscriptural
altogether.  The phrases "Word of God" and "Word of the Lord" are found
nearly 400 times in Scripture. There are only two books that do not mention
God (Esther and Song of Solomon).  So I would say that is pretty good internal
evidence that these words are the "words of God."
 
When most people would suggest that the Bible is the ONLY word of God, they
mean that there is no other collections of books that are inspired in the same way
that the Holy Scriptures are. I do not believe that most would deny that nature
itself is a "word" from God concerning Who and What He is.  In Ecc.7:16 we are
told to "Be not righteous over much...."  I think that is good advice. Don't try to
come across as "holier than thou" to other people and you will be better able to
show them other things that they will not listen to if you come on too strong.
God be with you,
Ray
