Another year has come and gone and a new one is now upon us. Everyone is also closer to the graveyard or the Day of Judgement, (whichever comes first) and for all nonbelievers, this is true if you accept it or not (Hebrews 9:27). Looking back over our past, we need to be honest with ourself and see where we stand on God’s approval list because with many of us, He is not pleased (1 Corinthians 10:5).
The attitude of man continues to sink to all time lows. The respect that men should have for the commands of the Bible, the word of God just keeps getting worse. Man has accepted the false theory that the Bible is outdated, when the truth is, the Bible is the everlasting word of God suited for every generation and it will be the standard by all men will be judged on the last Day (John 12:48; Revelation 20:11-12; 2 Cor. 5:10).
And dig this if you will. The earth, the heavens and the works on the ground will all be destroyed by God (2 Peter 3:10-14). And the only thing left will be those who stood on the Bible the word of Almighty God (Matthew 24:35; 1 Pt. 1:22-25; 1 Thessalonians 4:17; 2 Thess. 1:6-10).
Not bad for a book which is supposed to be outdated, but the truth is; the Bible is powerful enough to get a person into heaven and to remain standing long after all humanity is gone (1 Timothy 4:11-16). One more thing to add. Can any non-believer offer anything better then principles taught in God’s word? (Deuteronomy 4:8). If so, what is it? One non-believer thought he could answer the question. His reply was “love”. But that isn’t anything new! The word of God teaches man to love and that fellow was simply repeating a virtue that God had already instructed man about. Again I ask: if the Bible is obsolete, why is it everlasting and will be the rule by which all will either go to heaven or go to hell?
