Is the Bible an Archaic Relic?

If you listen to the pundits criticizing Scripture as archaic and useless for today’s world one might be repelled to read the bible. After all, it was finished almost 2000 years ago so how could it have any meaning in this day of computers, jets, nuclear energy and great medical advances? Those same people will cite these as jsut a small part of the reason that the Bible should be dismissed. It might be interesting to hear from these why they also think God does not exist. Some would hedge and say there is no empirical way to prove His existence and that would be that.

I give you what Timothy, a assistant to Paul, wrote about the Bible.

All Scripture is inspired of Goda and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness,  so that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3: 16-17

The word of Jehovah God concerns humanity as a whole no matter what time a person is born into. It is also meant for the humanity of this planet and what may also exist in this vast universe is not what the Bible has been written for. It is for us only. The argument about extra terrestrial life is therefore, a moot point as concerns human nature. IN fact, it is part of human nature to wonder and the Bible allows us to wonder with constraints based on our needs and not a being from some other world, if indeed those exist. We don’t know and God has not said. He didn’t need to as we have enough on our plates that we need only worry about ourselves and each other.

Put another way.

For the word of God is alive and exerts power and is sharper than any two-edged sword and pierces even to the dividing of soul and spirit, and of joints from the marrow, and is able to discern thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Hebrews 4: 12

We should always bear in mind the faults that imperfection has left us with. We all are imperfect and we tend to not being able to help show this at every turn. It is a reason not to curse others but to work on our relationship with God each and every day. Prayer will reach Him and He will also be aware of you when you do. Listen and watch to see how your prayer is answered because he sees your need even if you do not.
