Handle the Truth
by Randy Chambers, 2014-09-08
2 Timothy 2:15, NKJV: Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Some may worry about a day that could come when the powers that be will try to take our Bibles. But why would they? The adversary does not have to take from our hands, what he has already taken from our hearts. Most Christians spend little to no time in the Word of God each day. The tactics of the adversary, Satan, have already struck a devastating blow. Clever magician that he is, he has with one hand distracted us with the things of this world; while with the other hand, he has hid our Bibles from view and their rightful place of prominence in our lives. With so few Christians studying the Word of God, it becomes easier with each passing day for the adversary to twist and distort the truth of Godís Word through the use of popular cultural viewpoints. In the church, there are few who diligently open the Word of God; searching through it for life-changing applications. With that in mind, the question one must ask is simply this: if our Bibles were taken from us tomorrow, how much would really change within the day to day lives of most of the Christians within the church today?
