All Christians will agree that the Bible is the standard of truth for Christians. Since it is, then obviously, the way to see if something is true is to see if it lines up with the Word of God. Each Christian has the responsibility to prove everything they hear by the Word and by the witness of the Holy Spirit to its truth.
“Prove all things; hold fast that which is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21).
Today, the world has no enduring standard. Every man does what is right in his own eyes, as Israel did in the day of the judges (Judges 17:6). A multitude of standards abound in the 20th century, ranging from the many cultic and false religious standards to our current cultural “standards.” Much of the confusion in the world today comes from this one thing: Society has abandoned the one standard of truth, which is the Bible.
Zechariah 4:10 “For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.”
Welcome to the Bible Answers for Daily Living blog. Most of my readers have known me from the BibleResources.org website or the former website of Bible.com, of which my husband, Bud, and I founded back in 1994. YouVersion is now leading the future of Bible.com by providing a free Bible App made available on the Bible.com website; while the Lord is now directing us to share Bible based teachings and other Bible tools on the BibleResources.org website. When we turned Bible.com over to YouVersion it had around 2 million unique visitors a month. I never dreamed when the Lord called me to serve Him that He would have me share the writings that He revealed to me with a potential audience of 2 million people. Our current website, BibleResources.org, started with a humble beginning as well, and is growing daily and that audience is nearing the half million mark. I just feel the Lord wants me to share in this first blog about how He commissioned the literature and online ministry and grew it for His purposes. We began the Christ Unlimited Ministry in 1975 with a small evangelistic outreach in West Texas. Today, He has commissioned us to take the gospel to the world via the Internet. We take our calling seriously as we realize the gravity of being a good steward of the Word of God.
