Our Authoritative Standard
Pundits doggedly seek to persuade us to buy their interpretation of the world and their convictions of right and wrong. They burrow counsel into our ears, seeking a path to our hearts. Though as Christians we are outfitted to think with the mind of Christ, “plausible arguments” can still threaten to take us “captive” by ensnaring our lives in a moral web “not according to Christ” (Col. 2:4–8).
Thankfully, navigating life does not depend on us. God has given us His Word through His prophets and Apostles. In His Word, we find the reason for creation and promises for the future state of affairs. We understand God, man, sin, and salvation. God discloses His sovereign love, indefatigable forgiveness, and glorious grace. We discover divinity, dignity, depravity, and deliverance. He not only tells us why we die; He informs us how to live.
