Yes, it is, merely by calling it the title that only Jesus merits does constitute idolatry.

A phrase can hold two meanings.

The Word was used as a Messianic title for Christ-as seen in the first chapter of John, but also refers to the actual words of God found in the Bible.

Another example of this is the title "Son of Man". It is a title for Christ the Messiah, but also used as a title for any human being (one born to another human).

Clearly, a title doesn't need to be exclusive to one application.

From the revealed Word of God, the KJV Bible as well as guidance from the Holy Spirit.

2Ti 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2Ti 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Joh 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.

I feel you fail to understand that skeptics need evidence for the Bible's authority to come from somewhere other than the Bible.

There is a lot of evidence to support the belief that the Bible is God's Word. Both external (manuscripts, archaelogical confirmation) and internal (its unity, its preservation throughout history, its amazing, life-changing power, etc.)

Word of God, huh?

Only thought that honorific was applied to the Logos; in regards to the Bible, wouldn't elevating a book to the place of supernatural distinction be...idolatry?

STWELCH

You have a misconception about the Christian view of the Bible. True Christians do not directly worship the Bible, they worship God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth. However, they believe (rightly, I might add) that the words contained in the Bible were divinely inspired by God. It is not idolatry to regard the Bible as God's Word.

Hah. The only "right" place being the Bible? I don't need a book to tell me what to do with my life.SolidSnake35

Then it is a very good thing that the Bible is more than a book, isn't it?

that was funny. Where do you really get it from?

If he can't take the question seriously, I'd venture to guess he definitely doesn't get it from the right place.

As Crushmaster has said, I live my life by the Bible, which is undoubtedly God's Holy Word.

Yep you are right; I don't see how love for your child can be affected by science though. Unless I misunderstood your point; in which case, enlighten me. :Psuper_mario_128

Well, then, if love cannot be proven scientifically at all, how can you say it exists? After all, you say that God cannot be proven scientifically, and as a result He is imaginary. Are we going to add love the list of things that cannot exist in atheism, alongside happiness?

Even though I'm sure this was a gag, are you saying the purpose of living is death? That is like saying the purpose of education is ignorance...
