And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
1 Timothy 3:16 (King James Bible)This is a very stirring sermon on standing on the word of God!

God has not only given us His Word but He as preserved it.
It is the responsibility of God's people to publish His Word.
"...truth can be spread through the printed word!"
The Lord gave the word:
great was the company of those that published it.
Psalm 68:11 (King James Bible)
6The words of the LORD are pure words:
as silver tried in a furnace of earth,
purified seven times.
7Thou shalt keep them, O LORD,
thou shalt preserve them from this generation
Psalm 12:6-7 (King James Bible)
I will worship toward thy holy temple,
and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness
and for thy truth:
for thou hast magnified thy word
above all thy name.
Psalm 138:2 (King James Bible)
For ever, O LORD,
thy word is settled in heaven.
Psalm 119:89 (King James Bible)
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth:
but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
Isaiah 40:8 (King James Bible)
The pen is mightier than the sword! Especially when in the form of the printed word, thanks to Gutenberg, in 1448, right in the middle of the Catholic Inquisition!
The printing press defeated the Roman Catholic Church's attempt, for centuries on end, to keep the word of God from His people!
