But It Was Written So Long Ago

by Anonymous

It’s amazing how many Believers, when sharing their faith, have encountered skeptics who seem to use the same reasoning repeatedly, “The Bible was written so long ago. How can it possibly be relevant to modern times?”

Turn to Isaiah 40:8, which reads, “The grass withers, and the flowers fade, but the Word of Yahweh stands forever.” (NLT throughout) Forever is a mighty long time! Yahweh’s Word is relevant for our every need. It is from His mind and heart. Who could deny that the all-wise, all-powerful, ever-present Creator is the best guide of all?

James 1: 5 says, “If you need wisdom—if you want to know what Yahweh wants you to do—ask Him and He will gladly tell you.”

Turn to 2 Timothy 3: 16-17, which reads, “All scripture is inspired by Yahweh and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right. It is Yahweh’s way of preparing us in every way, fully equipped for every good thing Yahweh wants us to do.” I’d say that sounds pretty relevant, wouldn’t you?
