Does the Bible still have relevance in our modern society?

Spiritual Focus

Over the centuries, it has been noted by many, that the Bible provides sound guidance through fundamental principles that never change. If this is true the Bible would still be relevant to our everyday life. We can only know that for sure if we examine it. Upon examination, it becomes clear that there are many practical lessons to be learned from the Psalms & Proverbs. We can also discern important lessons & principles throughout the entire Bible.

The Bible offers practical insight for children, teenagers, parents & couples. It helps us understand how important open communication is & why we should be forgiving, patient, kind & humble & how to find true contentment. Since this is God’s wisdom & he does not change, we can always trust what the Bible has to say. 

Beyond that there is another outstanding feature of the Bible & that is prophecy. Many of the prophecies found in the Bible have already taken place which can be proved by history & archeology. The Bible, then, is no doubt inspired by God & beneficial for us. (2 Timothy 3:16).

The world is in chaos. Many people are fearful & insecure about the future of mankind & sense that there has been a major shift in the world. The Bible foretold that there would be a period of time called “the last days” (1 Timothy 3: 1-5) before God would bring destruction against those who refuse to listen to & obey him. This would be a horrible time, the worst in history.

According to the prophecy in 1 Timothy 3: 1-5 as well as other prophecies in the Bible – it is clear that we are now living in the last days. That being the case it is vitally important that we see the Bible as relevant & come to an accurate knowledge of God & his purposes & live in harmony with that precious knowledge. 

We are grateful to know Jehovah & understand what he purposes for this beautiful earth and for the people who strive to live by his standards. Jehovah is a lovable God & through the Bible he teaches us about himself & how to have a rich meaningful life. We thank Jehovah each day for all he has done for us & look forward to worshipping him forever on earth.
