Perhaps it has always been the case, but there seems to be a growing trend in the church today to adjust the clear words and meaning of the Bible to fall in line with current public opinion. Sadly, many church leaders seem to be far more concerned with being politically or culturally acceptable than with being true to God’s word.
This is a dangerous territory. For if we cannot have confidence in the unchanging truth of God’s spiritual laws as expressed in His word, we will increasingly lose confidence in God Himself and His precious work of redemption from sin through the cross. However challenging, do I continue trust in the wisdom of God or follow the wisdom of man?
God has not given us His laws to simply provide an interesting opportunity for debate regarding their current validity. They are written down in the Bible, affirmed by Jesus and His followers, so that, whatever the changing fashion of public morality, those who choose to walk God’s way can be confident that there exists an eternal plumb-line of divine righteousness. What was right with God in the past will always be right and, what’s more, it will always lead to well-being for those that live, in Christ, according to God’s unchanging word.
Prayer: Father, I choose to believe that Your truth will endure through all generations on earth until the end of days, irrespective of the ever-changing opinions of the world. Amen.
