There is no higher or better chronicle on morality than the Bible.
Even though modern science has strenuously tried to discredit the Bible over the last 100 years, time and time again new archeological finds and scientific discoveries ultimately validate its trustworthiness. (e.g., see Evidence that Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell, also Show Me God by Fred Heeren)
Is the Christian church perfect? Of course not; it is made up of fallible people like you and us. But God’s word the Bible is perfect:
2 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness.”
While every other religion on the planet is man-made, professing that man can somehow achieve perfection and eternal life in and of himself, the Bible rightly teaches that man is utterly lost without a divine Savior Jesus Christ:
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
The price of entrance into heaven is exactly the same for every person who has ever lived on planet earth. Regardless whether they were rich or poor, tall or short, white or otherwise, Protestant or Catholic, good or bad.
Romans 10:9 “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.”
The family and its intended inner-workings were designed by God from the very beginning. We cannot ignore the master builder’s instruction manual and not expect to encounter great difficulty.
Ignoring the owner’s manual for a new car is not that different than putting water into the gas tank and then complaining that the engine will not run. Once the water reaches the engine, the engine will be completely and utterly ruined.
Similarly, just because you own the new car does not give you the power nor the wisdom to write your own instruction manual with your world-view of how it should operate.
Most people who would argue against using the Bible have never read it, or they have latched on to half-truths that are taken out of context.
Most of us have heard the line that we’re told comes from the Bible, “Judge not lest ye be judged.” But that is not where the verse in Matthew 7:1 stops!
“Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. 3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, `Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
God gave each of us a mind, and he expects us to use our faculties to make wise choices and decisions that honor him, our families, and ourselves.
