Below are videos of the four studies that were given at a special ‘Inspiration Day’ held in Coventry by the Coventry West Ecclesia on 21st May 2016.
Two Speakers, Bro Philip Wetherall (Daventry) and Bro Nigel Bernard (Pembroke) were invited to deal with the following subjects.
1: ‘All scripture is given by inspiration of God’ – Bro Philip
The acceptance of this statement requires diligent application of our minds to those things which have been written aforetime. God has made it very clear that the Bible has come from him and that, as such, every word that he has selected is important. This talk emphasizes the essential nature of verbally inspired Scripture and that it is the means by which man is able to become acquainted with the promises and thereby escape the corruption that is in the world through lust. -Philip Weatherall
2: ‘Comparisons and Alleged Contradictions’ – Bro Nigel
This talk considers the way that scripture interprets scripture. The speaker examines several examples of where a passage contains quotations from another passage. The network of quotations within Scripture is cited as evidence for inspiration. It is shown that true Bible study involves “comparing spiritual things with spiritual” (1 Cor. 2:13). Some alleged contradictions are also considered with possible solutions, but it is emphasized that such apparent contradictions reflect our lack of understanding rather than a fault with the text. – Nigel Bernard
3: ‘The writing of the Old Testament’ – Bro Philip
Evidence is provided in Scripture to show how the Old Testament books having been received by the prophets were delivered to the Levites that they might be preserved. Writings existed from very early times and the books of the Old Testament reveal how later books depend upon those earlier Scriptures. This talk also demonstrates how the writings were utilized at various periods in Israel’s history. – Philip Weatherall
4: ‘The writing of the New testament’ -Bro Nigel
This talk shows that New Testament books were referred to as Scripture and accounted as such from the outset. External evidence is cited to prove the New Testament documents indeed existed in the First Century. The gospel of Luke is examined, showing how Luke was moved to write by the Holy Spirit “from above”. Comments by Paul in 1 Corinthians 7, which are sometimes wrested to claim he was only partially inspired, are shown to be inspired in the same way as the rest of the epistle. Paul’s request to Timothy concerning his cloak is looked at in depth showing that it is truly the Word of God and should not be dismissed as a trivial, non-inspired text. – Nigel Bernard
A number of articles were referred to by both speakers during the studies and we have made most of them available via the links below.

Bible Truth & Prophecy is an exciting on-line tool for establishing just how far removed from the teachings of the Bible mainstream Christian teaching has become.
End Time Prophecies are interpreted using the Bible, not man made ideas or notions.
Key Biblical subjects such as the Trinity, Devil/Satan worship, Holy Spirit Gifts & much more are all dealt with extensively from the Bible’s viewpoint and not man’s.
We will demonstrate how Christian beliefs have become corrupted, and reveal the ‘Truth’ as taught by the 1st Century Apostles.
