Episode #6 - The Unchanging Truth of God's Word
Recommended Resource: Story of William Tyndale
Matthew 24:35 - “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”
The goal of Bible reading is not just to get through the Scripture, the goal is to get the Scripture through you. To learn it, to apply, to obey it, and to live it. In doing so, we learn to know God personally and intimately.
We live today in a post-Christian era. There was a time in the past when it was generally assumed that there was such a thing as “revealed” truth. Objective truth that was true for all. Today the value of our society is relativism.
In two national surveys conducted by Barna Research, people were asked if they believe that there are moral absolutes that are unchanging or that moral truth is relative to the circumstances. By a 3-to-1 margin adults said truth is always relative to the person and their situation. Among teenagers, 83% said moral truth depends on the circumstances, and only 6% said moral truth is absolute.
We live in a culture where tolerance has been elevated above truth. This value of tolerance assumes that all lifestyles and moral convictions are equal. Truth is believed to be personal.
If we are not so very careful, we can buy into this philosophy. As Christians we must guard our hearts and protection our churches against this fallacy.
Here’s a conviction we must maintain: The Bible is the final authority for faith, doctrine, and lifestyle. The Bible is the inspired Word of God.
As you and follow Jesus, as we continue on this journey as a disciple of Christ. We must value the Word of God. It is a timeless book. It has never been more relevant than it is today. Through this book we come to know God. Today let it be a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path.
