False Doctrines

The Bible Is Only God's Word When It Speaks To You - False Doctrine:

There are times when God's word can seem like it was written for someone else or another generation. If you read a passage of Scripture and don't feel like it's for you at this time or that God isn't speaking to you from that passage, does it make the value of those words worth anything less?

There are also times when it seems God's word was written so we can use its wisdom in something going on in our own lives. That's one of the beautiful things about His word. It offers something for everyone...the world...for God so loved the world (John 3:16).

A person can gain insight by reading God's word, and then come back to the same passage and gain addition insight at a different time. That is because the Holy Spirit helps believers in Jesus with understanding and wisdom and our situations are changing all the time. Passages about being a good parent may be just what you need when you have a child but seem irrelevant to someone with no children.

God's word came to us to offer guidance and direction for what God wants for us and from us. The entire Bible is God's word because He inspired the words to be written down and they are for everyone. Just because something doesn't seem to fit now doesn't mean it can't be used later or to shed insight with a friend or family member now that the timing was right for.

Here Are Just A Few Things To Consider:

What if a person ignored all the passages that related to their opposite sex because it "didn't seem to speak to them." After all, why would a man need to know what the bible says about being a woman..he will never be one? Why would a woman need to know about what God's word said about being a man... she will never be one? However, either one could have children years later in life. Would you now, as a parent not want to teach to your own children what God's word has to say not only about them but about the qualifications of the one they may want to marry someday?

Do you read through Jewish feasts in the Bible like Passover and think it has no meaning to you because you do not celebrate this or any other Jewish holiday? Remember Jesus was Jewish and understanding these Feasts help to understand the fulfillment that our Messiah brought. Try thinking of the holiday of Passover as a story of redemption with the first Passover Lamb that finds it's full meaning in the redemption that Jesus brings as ultimate Passover Lamb sacrifice. For more on this kind of thing please read Messiah In The Jewish Holidays.

The entire word of God is designed to show us that we are sinners and need a saviour. Therefore, God's word is relevant at all times and should be considered. Just because a passage doesn't seem to fit in your life today, doesn't meant that the exact same passage isn't just what the person living next to you needs to hear. Perhaps that passage that you think doesn't speak to you today was meant for them and you are the one God wants to share it with them.

Thinking that the Bible is only God's word or only useful to us when it speaks to us is a type of false doctrine.

The Bible Says it this way:

"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness" (2 Tim. 3:16).

"No prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit" (2 Pet. 1:20 - 21).
