Will We Condemn God's Word? | From the Archives

Wilt thou also disannul My judgment? wilt thou condemn Me, that thou mayest be righteous? (Job 40:8)

Why would anyone even try to "condemn God's Word?" Why would they try to make it invalid? What is their purpose?

If a person can claim that God's Word is inapplicable to them, they then have no standard by which to measure their life. If God's Word is not to be trusted, then who can say that sodomy is a sin? Who can say that abortion is wrong? Who can say that premarital relationships are abomination to God? If we can disprove God's Word, then we can make all of these sins appear "righteous."

These are the big topics of sin today, but what about the little sins in our lives? Are there any areas where we are trying to disprove the Bible? Any areas that we try to "explain away" to excuse our behavior ("what this really means is . . .")? It is easy to condemn those who blatantly disannul God's judgments -- but let us do a heart check and "see if there be any wicked way in me."
