It seems there is so much unrest in the world. Wars, rumors of wars, major global illnesses, disagreements on all types of social issues – and the list goes on. What should be my reaction to these?
A person recently told me she was conservative in her way of thinking. I responded that I didn’t know if I was conservative but rather I was “biblical”. She had a strange reaction but I told her that, since God’s Word is my measuring tool, the answer to all my decisions are found in the Bible.
Psalm 18:30Psalm 18:30
English: American Standard Version (1901) - ASV
30 As for God, his way is perfect: The word of Jehovah is tried; He is a shield unto all them that take refuge in him.
WP-Bible plugin NIV states, “As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.” Since God’s Word is flawless, why would I look for the answers anywhere else? Some people try to make the Bible say what they want by making their own interpretation but as the lyrics of the old song goes, “if God says it, I believe it, and that settles it for me!” I am not going to change God’s Word to suit my own needs or so I will be socially accepted.
I am going to look “within the covers”!
Following are the lyrics to the song “God Said It and I Believe It” as sung by Del Delker.
