It has come to my attention that there are people who make an assumption that life today is different than it was thousands of years ago. These people use this as a presupposition to reason that the Holy Bible is not valid today because it was written about life thousands of years ago. Now at first thought, this seems like a rational postulation and that life thousands of years ago was different than life is today.
Let’s look into this hypothesis of life thousands of years ago and today being different and see if it is a valid starting point to argue the assertion that the Holy Bible is outdated and not applicable to life we (you and I) experience today.
Well, in fact, life thousands of years ago is no different back then as it is today. Life thousands of years ago is no different than life today because people thousands of years ago wanted food, drink, to be loved, riches, jobs, freedom, encouragement, to be heard, hopes to live a long and healthy life, etc. Pressures from day to day living were prevalent thousands of years ago as it is today too.
People thousands of years ago had pain and suffering as we do today and in many cases, even more pain and suffering than we do today because today we have much better medical knowledge than back then. People also thousands of years ago died like people die today. With death of a loved one thousands of years ago the grief, pain, and suffering felt back then is the same grief, pain, and suffering one feels today when a loved one dies.
Thousands of years ago some people followed the one true God of creation and others did not just as today some people do and some people don’t today. Back then, their means of life, day to day pressures may have been somewhat different than today as the technology we have today they did not have however, life thousands of years ago was and is the same as today in that they had to provide a means of living for their families and encountered day to day pressures which acted upon them back then as the day to day pressures act upon us today.
Thus our findings are that life today and life thousands of years ago are not different. Therefore, the teachings within the Holy Bible about life are just as valid today as it was for life thousands of years ago and will still be valid thousands of years from today because the Holy Bible is timeless with regard to living life on earth.
Think about this for a moment; Atheists use books written very recently to say that God does not exist. Yet when followers of Jesus Christ use a book which has been tested and not proven false and always confirmed via scientific discoveries over its thousands of years of existence, they get upset and say that the Holy Bible is outdated and does not pertain to life today. Well, now you know that life today is the same as life thousands of years ago when the Bible was written and even before it was written.
If you have not already done so, you can start today your honest search for absolute truth. Those who diligently seek absolute truth will find it if and only if you make a personal choice to do so. I and millions of people around the world have found absolute truth and the love which comes from a personal relationship with Christ Jesus. I pray that you are not apathetic in your quest for the truth and that you are honest with yourself and start your authentic search today for absolute truth. If you honestly seek the truth about God, you will find Him.
