Preservation of Scripture
It makes sense that the God and Creator of the universe could accurately preserve his words if he chooses. Not only has He has claimed to do this, evidence shows that he has indeed done so. The bible is not just a record of God’s “sayings”, nor is it simply man’s record of his "doings.” It does not merely contain the word of God. The bible is the revealed word of God…. every word of it. It is His truth standard by which all personal beliefs are judged. It ALONE is the final authority for Christians. The New Testament has historically been the only textbook to govern the beliefs and activities of Christians.
God's words are eternal and cannot be broken. To change his words is a direct attack on Him and an attempt at dethronement.
Crimen Laesae Maiestatis (Latin) -literally, The Crime of Injured Majesty; an offense against the dignity, person, or authority of a reigning sovereign; high treason The ungodding of god; the unwording of the word
