The Bible is true. Every word. There are no contradictions. There is no gray area. It doesn’t matter if you disagree, because truth is truth whether you agree with it or not. And if you choose to believe that all or part of the Bible is not true, you’re deceived. Period.
So where do you draw the line between the world’s view and God’s?
The Bible is the final authority. You may not like that answer, and you may beg to differ. Fine. Go ahead. Argue all you want. But the bottom line is that there is no argument.
You are not God. I am not God. Only God is God. He doesn’t change. Ever.
God doesn’t have to keep up with the times. His Word – the Bible – is just as relevant today as it was two thousand years ago. Every situation, every emotion, every predicament you find yourself in is there. It’s a user guide. A help line. Technical support.
You don’t get to pick and choose what you think is true or not. 2 + 2 = 4 regardless of what you think the answer should be. It’s truth.
You may not like everything the Bible says. I don’t. But I know that when I read one of those things I don’t like, it’s usually something I need to change about myself and that is never easy.
The choice is always yours. You can go through life disregarding God and what He has to say to you. Or you can accept the truth that He is on your side and actually wants you to be all you were destined to be.
You’re on one side of the line or the other.
