The #Bible is STILL The “Relevant” Word! –

Bible Still Relevant Today

For that they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever (Rom 1:25)~ Before the beginning began, GOD has determined what is right and wrong, and since HE made clear what we weren’t supposed to do, we have ALL sinned and fallen short of His glory, but rather than humble ourselves before Him and respect HiM, we’ve decided that ‘our’ ways are now okay and we are all about what WE want. We  rationalize everything that governs us and conclude by our own wisdom that in some cases, ‘sin’ is no longer sin, but is now the choice of our free will and lifestyle! In fact, the more controversial it is against God’s standards, the more desirable the lifestyle seems to get! People say things like, “but the Bible was written by a “MAN”, it was not the word of God. I’m sorry, but social mores have changed.” … and also one that stated “You forget that the United States is not a theocracy; the bible is irrelevant concerning public policy.”….It amazes yet saddens me that we look at the Bible and say it’s outdated and doesn’t apply to today’s “social” world. But THIS Christian believes that the Bible is a sure guide to eternal life! The prophets and apostles did not speak from themselves, but delivered what they received of God! I believe what the Word says in that “All Scripture is breathed out by GOD and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work (2 Tim 3:16-17). But “we” have decided that God’s standards as the Word defines them are too restrictive to the different varieties of lifestyles people want to have so we must redefine those standards to accommodate every choice of lifestyle we want to lead. We think that if enough of ‘the people’ are okay with it, and will vote it into a law or have a faction that supports it; it’s okay and even “right” to do. So someone that’s highly published or famous or charismatic; and with a popular dialect of supposed intellect comes out with their interpretation! Popular culture likes it, and THAT makes our choices and lifestyles and interpretations justified and therefore okay! No thanks worldly views! I’ve got enough to give account for as it is, I won’t be trying to explain to God why ‘I’ changed the rules … One question I don’t want to have to answer is “Who made YOU God?” Because my only answer could be… “The people” and honestly, that’s another bad story in itself. Remember what happened when the Israelites decided to fashion their own god and make their own rules! That’s where this world is headed right now! The intent and meaning of God’s word doesn’t change to suit our choices! His Word is THE word, PERIOD! It’s according to HIS will as it is written and is not up for debate, negotiation or re-interpretation under cultural or social scrutiny! There is no “I know the Bible says this but…..”. Plain and simple, “thus saith The Lord”! He is God and He changes NOT!
