The first consideration in this series is the Relevance of the Bible. True it is that if the Bible is irrelevant then so is its Authority, so is any influence that the Bible might make on the lives of persons, the state of the culture, the history of nations in these times. If the Bible is irrelevant then any attempt to place relevance upon it becomes an effort in futility. If that is true, then so be it.
But if it is not true; if the Bible is indeed Gods words to all people, of all cultures, in all nations and at all times then its relevance is axiomatic and its relatability is self evident.
Indeed, the Bible teaches, as its primary purpose and concern, that all of mankind is in trouble, it shouts with absolute clarity that “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement” (Heb 9:27) If this is true then how can the Bible NOT be relevant?
If there is a way that man might be saved from the consequence of this judgement, then this needs to be heard, it needs to be known, it must be told and shared to all people, from all cultures, in all nations and at all times.
