Modern-day young Christians are offered numerous ways to learn God’s word. More often than not, the so-called religious teachers cast doubt on the truthfulness and authority of the Lord’s word. When an individual finds salvation, it is easy to make him think that the Bible is God’s word and that the scriptures are unquestionable.
Naturally, this assumption makes a great deal of sense, as it was God’s word that helped him in his hour of need and following the pathway of the Lord restored him. If God’s word was untrustworthy, then how else was he saved?
However, throughout the passage of our lifetime, we will meet many people who will readily challenge the word of God. Non-believers who teach in our schools and colleges will ridicule the book and preach alternatives in the quest to sound knowledgeable. We can expect such behavior from one who is lost, but the believers among us should be on their guard, after all, we have found the Lord and we have embraced his teachings.
Sadly, a percentage of young students who attend Christian schools and universities will fare little better. Some learned people who refer to themselves as bible teachers will endeavor to shake other people’s faith by stating that the original word of God means something quite different. The same teachers will insist that other phrases offer a better translation, in other words, they feel their word is God.
However, in reality, such talk is foreign to the Apostles and other leading bible characters. They boldly proclaim that the word of God is good and confidently say “Thus said the Lord”.
Read Psalm 12:6-7 to find the main reason for their confidence. The words in the psalm clearly state that the Lord’s words are pure. Note the psalm doesn’t talk about the Word of God in general, it means exactly what it says, the Lord’s words are truthful and they will be preserved forever.
Strictly speaking, it doesn’t matter which age we live in, we will always be able to access the word of God and the Bible will always play an important role in life. If you encounter a bible teacher who tries to undermine the word of the Lord, take heart and be patient. God’s words will be preserved as he promised and the scriptures will always be accessible. God never breaks a promise, so trust your bible and be sure the true message of God will remain with us forever.
It is important to remember that the words of the bible were derived from the Holy Spirit, a being who works in mysterious ways his wonders to perform. The Holy Spirit worked tirelessly to convert people and introduce them to Christ.
Read through Jeremiah 1:1, a heart-warming scripture concerning the Lord’s steadfastness, reliability, and trustworthiness. Read these great words and note God clearly states that he is watching over us to see that his word is fulfilled.
