This is a great topic, thank you for bringing it to our attention pastor Jack!

I actually have a comment about the post you linked to:

http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/five-tips-for-picking-the-best-bible-translation/

I couldn’t find a place to post a comment on that page.

With choosing a study Bible, how do we know how knowledgeable the commentator(s) are? If we found a biased commentator, or one that wasn’t knowledgeable, that could have an adverse effect on us while reading the study section. It would be great to have guidance on choosing a study Bible.

Thank you for sharing your insight with us, and cautioning us in our actions and thoughts.

Thank you my brother. I believe the cross can become an idol too in my opinion. You are always the great encourager my brother. I think the two most trustworthy Bible’s with commentaries are the ESV’s Mac Arthur Study Bible and the Reformation Study Bible with editor R.C. Sprouls.

Thank you for sharing some ideas on Study Bibles. I will look in to both of them.

You cannot make God an idol: John 1:1 (KJV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

What we can make an idol is basically that what we want to believe. And then try to claim the Bible doesnt really say what it says. The word says what it says. And the word is God.

God is God as in Jesus Christ (John 1:1-4) and God is not an idol, I agree. we should worship God and worship Jesus Christ Who is very God!
