Three ways to live

Which is your way?

Do they believe the Bible?

I think this is a neat way to test the leaders who want to run your country:

However, let me point out what I think is a deficiency in all three answers. The question should not be whether you believe the Bible literally or not, it should be whether Bible has authority over you. What do you do when you encounter a passage that requires a change in you behavior or attitude? Do you tend to write it off as something cultural or outdated? Or do you think long and hard how to properly apply it to your life? This makes all the difference.

Very often those who say they don’t believe Bible is literally true are those who end up picking and choosing what to believe from it. They might like “Love your neighbor” and discard “Take up your cross and follow me”, accept “Forgive your brother” and reject “I am the truth, the way and the life. No one comes to father except through me”.

How are you doing?

And ultimately, reading the Scriptures should point us to the person and work of Jesus, not (just) a set of good principles to live by

“You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and(B) it is they that bear witness about me”
John 5:39
