The Power of the Written Word

Sometimes we are told that, of course, while Jesus Christ was upon earth there was power in what He had to say, but "all we have now is the written Word." Does the mere fact that God's Word has been written rather than forevermore spoken reduce its force or influence? Do we regard our oral words more sacred and binding than we do our written documents'? Are our deeds, mortgages, government bonds, and Securities rendered valueless because they have been written? Should we shut down the county court clerk's office, the recorder's office and do business by word of mouth to give force thereto? The Savior understood full well that there is power in the Word of God. It ought to be considered as having enough power and force for the accomplishment of that which God intended-namely, the salvation of the souls of men.

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation..." -Romans 1:16
