ASSAULT

Why is there such an assault on the Bible?  Well, what other book is as forward about human behavior and destiny?   It claims that it is the message of the Creator that knows humans inside and out (Jer.1: 5).  God is the source of everything that is good (Ja.1: 17) and the devil is the source of all that are evil and do Satan’s bidding (II Cor.11: 3; Jn.8: 42-47; Gen.3: 1-15).  Contrary to the popular opinions of the majority, the prince of this world is Satan and not God or the Christ (Jn.12: 31; 14: 30; 16: 11).  Christ’s Kingdom is not of this world (Jn.18: 36; Mk.1: 14).

The Bible is a manual and like a compass points only in the right direction.  It contains instructions as to how humans must live and records all human deeds (Rev.20: 12).  Whatever a human puts into his life and work that he shall also harvest (Gal.7: 7-10).  Man is a fallen creature (Gen.3) and God has provided a way of escape (Jn.3: 16-18).  But those humans that deliberately trample on Grace or the Son of God condemn themselves (Jn.1: 14,17; Heb.10: 26-27; Rev.22: 10-11).  Unresolved sin has no place in God’s world (Rev.21: 8; 22: 15).  Not even the Son of God could amend the principles that govern humanity (Mt.5: 17-20) but had to accept their verdict (Phil.2: 5-11).  Those that think they do not have to obey the rules shall die in their sins (Jn.8: 21). 

The Bible is a light for our journey through life (Ps.119: 105).  It is rather illuminating when we go wrong (Jn.15: 22-25; Lk.12: 2-3).  Jesus uttered this verdict, “Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil.  Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed” (Jn.3: 19-20).  When a sinner looks into the Bible, he or she sees him or herself and what they see they do not like.  Instead of assaulting themselves, they assault the Bible and its Authors.  What shall be the result?
