Victor Paul Wierwille was a Bible scholar and teacher for over four decades.
By means of Dr. Wierwille's dynamic teaching of the accuracy and integrity of God's Word, foundational class and advanced class graduates of Power for Abundant Living have learned that the one great requirement for every student of the Bible is to rightly divide the Word of Truth. Thus, his presentation of the Word of God was designed for students who desire the in-depth-accuracy of God’s Word.
In his many years of research, Dr. Wierwille studied with such men as Karl Barth, E. Stanley Jones, Glenn Clark, Bishop K.C. Pillai, and George M. Lamsa. His formal training included Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Theology degrees from Mission House (Lakeland) College and Seminary. He studied at the University of Chicago and at Princeton Theological Seminary from which he received a Master of Theology degree in Practical Theology. Later he completed his work for the Doctor of Theology degree.
Dr. Wierwille taught the first class on Power for Abundant Living in 1953.
Books by Dr. Wierwille include: Are the Dead Alive Now? published in 1971; Receiving the Holy Spirit Today published in 1972; five volumes of Studies in Abundant Living— The Bible Tells Me So (1971), The New, Dynamic Church (1971), The Word's Way (1971), God's Magnified Word (1977), Order My Steps in Thy Word (1985); Jesus Christ Is Not God (1975); Jesus Christ Our Passover (1980); and Jesus Christ Our Promised Seed (1982).
Dr. Wierwille researched God's Word, taught, wrote, and traveled worldwide, holding forth the accuracy of God's "wonderful, matchless" Word.
Joh 10:10; 3:16
Excerpts from SNT 0302 John 10:10
“Every class has to start someplace and this class on Power for Abundant Living begins with a subject dealing with the greatest secret in the world today.”
“There is a great secret in this world, and the reason it is a secret is because people don’t know it. Once something is known it is no longer a secret… The greatest secret in the world today is that the bible is the revealed Word and will of God. That’s the greatest secret: That the bible is the revealed Word and will of God. That is the greatest secret in the world, because nobody believes it.”
“We believe in this class on Power for Abundant Living that the Word of God is the will of God.”
“In the Gospel of John, in the 10th chapter, in the 10th verse, we read the following, ‘The thief [the thief] cometh not but for to [What?] steal, and to kill, and to destroy.’ Jesus then says the rest of it, ‘I am come that they might have life and that they might have it [What?] more abundantly.’”
“Because, if you can’t trust God in John 10:10, if you can’t trust His Word there in John 10:10, how can you and I trust His Word in John 3:16?”
“People this verse is the foundational scripture of this class on Power for Abundant Living because it is this verse where you start making up your mind. Either Jesus Christ told the truth or he lied. It is as simple as all that. That’s right. It is as simple as all that. Either that’s the truth or it’s a lie. If it is a lie you know what we ought to do? Be honest, give it up, chuck the whole thing and have it over. But if it’s the truth, if it is the truth, then somewhere, someplace, somehow, He must be able to tell us how we can receive this life which is abundant.”
