applicable. To every situation of life, in all spheres. Every single one of them.
I realize this statement offends the (in)sensibilities of postmodern thought that has left absolute truth pictured as shambles through a preponderance of situational ethics. Thankfully, God isn't defined (truthfully) by the postmoderns. That's particularly offensive to them.
Persons who humbly come to God's Word for His direction, in faithful expectation of his truth do find how wonderfully absolute and how complete God's word is to account for all men, all situations and all events. The principles of truth belong solely to God and transcend historical context and "situations". Man created by Him, for Him, and made in His image cannot possibly come up with something new apart from His omniscience. The Word of God is foundational to truth and its application, to doctrine and its practice.
In talking with a friend the other night, she mentioned a man that was disputing the Trinity with her because the word "Trinity" was not in the Bible, and he said that he could only believe in those things mentioned in the Bible.
Really? If that confession is a true statement on his part, or even a pious attempt to be pious, it is not exercised in his practice. Computers are not in the Bible, but he uses one. Cars are not in the Bible, but he drives one. Starbucks in not in the Bible, but he buys his coffee there. So his statement that he only believes in those things mentioned in the Bible is patently false.
However, the principles for how one is to use a computer or drive a car or enjoy something from Starbucks are all found IN THE BIBLE.
The Word of God WAS, IS and always WILL BE. To God be the glory!
