Back to the Bible

Jesus tells us in John 8:32 and 17:17 of the necessity and glory of Truth in the divine realm. We must know the Word of God if we would truly be free. One of the besetting sins of modern society is a lack of knowledge in the Bible’s contents. It really is no marvel that so much ungodliness runs rampant in our streets because a lack of Scriptural emphasis will always bring chaos into our lives. Men have forgotten Christ and the bulwark of righteousness He provides. In Proverbs 14:34 the inspired penman boldly affirmed: “Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any People.”

American desperately need to get back to the Bible in our homes. Last year this nation alone contributed 1,200,000 divorces to an already degraded world scene. In both Malachi and Matthew we learn that “God hates putting away” and let not man put asunder what God hath joined together!

We need to get back to Bible teaching regarding proper respect for authority. Holy Scripture informs us to pay taxes, obey the rulers and to pray for those in authority (Matt. 22:21; Rom. 13:1; I Tim. 2). This is the only way to stop the rioting, protesting and anarchy in our cities today. The Bible alone has the answer to our dilemma. Let us have the courage to return to its sacred teachings.

There is a genuine need for each one of us to go back to the Bible for God’s plan of redemption. In Acts 22:16 and Galatians 3:27 we clearly see the necessity of being baptized into Christ for the remission of sins. Bible baptism is immersion in water “in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit” (Matt. 3:16 and 28:19).
May we all get back to the Bible—starting today!
