What sets the Bible apart from all other books? When you read it, you sense something different about this Book. What is it? God breathed into the Scripture so that what comes out of the Scripture is the breath of God, as it is written,

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3.16–17). 

Yes, if God has inspired into the Scripture, then of course, the Scripture is profitable for teaching us, for reproving us, for correcting us, for instructing us in the ways of righteousness, and can make us complete men and women of God, so that we can perform any good work.
