Isaiah 5:20 says: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” (ESV) God’s Word is never old fashioned or culturally irrelevant. It’s always spot on and it often reveals where we’re way off. That’s not only true now, but also down through the ages. Few men have died for worthless opinions or mere bits and pieces of conventional wisdom. Few have died for lies, half-truths or fleeting public sentiment. But multitudes have given their lives with respect to their convictions regarding the Word of God–for what it says and Who it represents. Speaking of Jesus, John 1:1 & 14 says the following: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (ESV) Clearly the Word is a Person and that Person is Jesus Christ. Many embrace the oxymoronic notion that they like Jesus but reject the Bible. But the Author is inseparable from the words He spoke and inspired to be written. Matthew 24:35 & Luke 21:33 are identical as Jesus, the Word Made Flesh, declares: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.” (NIV)
