The Word of God is…

February 18, 2009

applicable. To every situation of life, in all spheres. Every single one of them.

I realize this statement offends the (in)sensibilities of postmodern thought that has left absolute truth pictured as shambles through a preponderance of situational ethics. Thankfully, God isn’t defined (truthfully) by the postmoderns. That’s particularly offensive to them.

Persons who humbly come to God’s Word for His direction, in faithful expectation of his truth do find how wonderfully absolute and how complete God’s word is to account for all men, all situations and all events. The principles of truth belong solely to God and transcend historical context and “situations”. Man created by Him, for Him, and made in His image cannot possibly come up with something new apart from His omniscience. The Word of God is foundational to truth and its application, to doctrine and its practice.

In talking with a friend the other night, she mentioned a man that was disputing the Trinity with her because the word “Trinity” was not in the Bible, and he said that he could only believe in those things mentioned in the Bible.

Really? If that confession is a true statement on his part, or even a pious attempt to be pious, it is not exercised in his practice. Computers are not in the Bible, but he uses one. Cars are not in the Bible, but he drives one. Starbucks in not in the Bible, but he buys his coffee there. So his statement that he only believes in those things mentioned in the Bible is patently false.

However, the principles for how one is to use a computer or drive a car or enjoy something from Starbucks are all found IN THE BIBLE.

The Word of God WAS, IS and always WILL BE. To God be the glory!

    Yes! God has cultivated and grown a love in me for His Word over the past 4-5 years that I never had. Even as a minister’s kids:) So amazing that we have such a solid foundation of guidance and wisdom to reffer to when making decisions in this crazy, chaotic world.

    Amen!! This is just so important. I have a dear family member raving about and recommending I read The Shack because I need (in her words) to get God out of the box I have Him in and understand Him better. Ummmm…..I tried explaining that the view of God in that book isn’t BIBLICAL, and that I need to understand Him as He has revealed Himself in His word. And that IS applicable to all aspects of life as you said so well. Thank you!
