There’s a Scripture for That

Always applicable

God designed the Bible to meet the spiritual needs of all people in every culture, in every age. Only God is wise enough to make the Scriptures so universally and perpetually relevant.

His word is never dated.

Like the people of the first century, we too are sinners in need of the same grace they needed then.

God’s plan of salvation never changes (Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Titus 3:5).

Applicable even to thorny ethical questions

But how do we make right moral decisions regarding matters not specifically mentioned in the Bible?

There’s where biblical principles guide our choices.

“. . . His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence” (2 Peter 1:3).

Everything!

Discerning the Difference

young man deciding-tagged

Learning to discern

Good vs. evil. Can we tell the difference? Sometimes it’s easy; sometimes not.

“But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil” (Hebrews 5:14).

Many issues the Bible does not address–directly.

However, the Bible does reveal God—His values, His character, what He loves and hates.

Knowing God through His word

The better we understand Him, the more clearly we see life through His eyes.

That each person may decide right and wrong subjectively is Satan’s lie.

“. . . a man’s way is not in himself, nor is it in a man who walks to direct his steps” (Jeremiah 10:23).

What we need is an objective standard by which to evaluate all things.

We have it—the Bible (Psalm 119:105).
