When We Place Ourselves In A Position Of Authority Over God’s Word

One of the tragic changes that we see unfolding in our culture today is that people are increasingly placing themselves in a position of authority over the Word of God. It is now quite normal for people to think of the Bible as intolerant, bigoted and old-fashioned. The result is that clear teachings in Scripture become reinterpreted to fit their “enlightened” human wisdom.  The Bible simply does not work this way. I want to plead with people to remember that the Bible does not need to be rescued, we do. The truth of the matter is that God and His Word are in a position of authority over every square inch of our lives and this universe. Instead of revising God’s Word to fit into our way of thinking or our lifestyle let’s humble ourselves before God and the timeless authority of His Word.
