“It is frighteningly easy to be bewildered by the pressure to second guess the teaching of Scripture or to cast it aside as irrelevant to the men and women of the twenty-first century.
“Careful attention to what the Bible actually does say is the only effective antidote.
“What God has to say is good. God’s word nourishes life, strengthens relationships and builds churches towards maturity.”
Did you catch that? The only antidote to that pressuring doubt of God’s Word is to read the written Word–and just to read what it actually says. When we need God’s help fighting doubt, or when we need answers to the questions that dog us, sitting with Him and letting Him speak in the pages of Scripture is the surest way back home.
