“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!”
We must guard ourselves against lowering the standard of God’s Word to our level of understanding or political correctness. And we must guard against raising our traditions above the standard of His Word. The Bible is not meant to be paraded past the judgment bar of your mind. You can argue with it, but why?
You can pick up any other book and read it, but this is the book that reads you. It pulsates with life and power. It cuts, burns, crushes, and wields mountain-moving power. His Word has a life of its own. It is the voice of God to you. You cannot refuse it, deny it, distort it, or dilute it. You can only bow before it.
When was the last time you studied the history behind the Word of God? Go to a bookstore or your church’s library; you will be amazed to find out how the translations were discovered and passed on.
