1 John 2:15 – 17 tells us that the things that drive the world, the “critical” ideas and needs are going to pass away. As we looked at yesterday God does not change; further His Word does not change Isaiah 40:8 tell us the Word of God stands forever. In Isaiah 55:11 we read that God’s Word accomplishes what God intends. There are more passages on the Word in the Bible; a whole lot more. They pretty much say the same thing it is authoritative and should be followed.
Perhaps we forget that. Perhaps we forget whose story this is. Perhaps we have confused who created who. Maybe we think that the pressures of this world’s culture should somehow inform and change the way that we understand God’s Word. We are so much smarter now. We know so much more than when the Bible was written. Surely, that should count for something. Surely, the things we think the Bible should say are more important than what it says. Or maybe we can just explain it away by relegating the Bible to a past irrelevant culture or one that is different that did not understand all that we know now. Yeah, that will work.
