A Worldwide Problem
The world does not recognize God, Jesus or the Bible. If Jesus came back today, the world would consider him a complete stranger with no credentials. He would not be accepted. His guidance would be refused. At the very least, his wishes for the world would be considered interference. At the worst, he would be forcefully opposed.
Christians are Jesus’ credentials. We have two main duties:
Purpose Of This Site
Bible Issues seeks to address a part of the problem above by presenting the Bible as a book of reason, history and religion that is still relevant to today. Christians are to use the entire Bible, not just the New Testament.
Christians must never be complacent. God has given us so much: the Bible and centuries of knowledge. Today we are literate and educated. Our responsibility is not simply obtaining forgiveness of our sins, or even spreading the Gospel of Salvation. These are only the elementary teachings of Jesus (Hebrews 6:1). Much more is expected of us. We must keep and teach the whole Bible (Matthew 5:17-19) in order to convince the world of sin and judgement (John 16:8-11).
The Christians before us thought they lived in and were building a Christian society. We, their children, know we live in a secular society. If we do not do our duty, even what we think we have will be taken away.
For to every one who has will more be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away. (Matthew 25:29)
