God’s Word is Forever and Unchanged

                I watched a video on the news of a man strapping on a jet pack and flying around a big city. That was amazing. That sort of thing was just “science fiction” as I was growing up. So were cordless communication devices that allowed people to speak to each other and view each other even a thousand miles apart. We are now experimenting with self-driving cars, drone deliveries, and other such things that just a generation ago would have been impossible. It’s called innovation; aka “progress”. A lot of amazing things have changed as our scientific knowledge has increased. Who knows what technology will bring us in the years ahead?
                Unfortunately, because technology has changed, many people believe that somehow other things have changed. Because we can access information quicker, view events across the nation as they happen, and even fly with a jet pack, some think that humans have somehow evolved on other levels…. because we have advanced so far, so quickly, with technology; that everything has changed. Not so….and that is where the Bible becomes so vitally important in our world. Yes, the Bible was written thousands of years ago. But that certainly has not made it obsolete.
                You see, the Bible isn’t about technology. It is not about world history. It is not about medicine. The Bible is about human beings. More specifically about the human relationship with our Creator. While many things have changed, humans have not. Human nature is still rife with greed, selfishness, hatred, lust, and thirst for power. Nothing scientific or technological will ever change that; it will not control that. Only a relationship with God will ever show us how to live, how to love, and how to fulfill our purpose.
                So, when the Bible tells us of only two sexes and God’s purpose for those two sexes, it is still as true today as it was the moment God wrote it to us. When the Bible tells us that God created us in the womb and so we have no intrinsic right to destroy that life it should guide us to oppose abortion today as we always have. In short, people haven’t and (won’t change) so the Bible doesn’t change. It doesn’t have to be updated or abridged. It was God’s perfect word when He gave it to us, and it is His perfect word even now. Study it, learn it, and by all means….live by it!
Say good things about your Savior and your church!
