Church and the Use of the Bible

The church is a place to worship God. Since the Old Testament times, God continually send his prophets to warn his people. The prophets were given the opportunity to hear God’s voice. So, as they were given that mission, they are truly blessed if they carry it out faithfully. Nowadays, we are being warned by God through the use of the Bible. When you read the Bible, you can actually see a lot of warnings and teachings from God. Also, it is being used by different churches to teach God’s word.

The Importance of Bible in the Church. Some churches doesn’t use the Bible during worship. Others even say that it is only the Church pastor, priest, or minister who have the right to hold or read the Bible during worship. It’s a ridiculous thinking! The Bible is very important. It is a book that God gave to us as our guide in knowing His teachings or law. To understand it better, all of us must study the Bible very diligently until the morning star rises in our hearts.

The Church without the Bible. In the age of the Son, Jesus always gave his teachings through the Scriptures or the Bible. He also used it to rebuke the teachers of the law who claim to believe in God. Our God Himself set us the example of using the Bible whether during worship or when teaching someone. So, without the use of the Bible in the Church, it cannot be said that it is a church. Why? Simply because they are not following the examples of Jesus.

The Bible as a Tool to have Good Morals

Prove that you are a real Christian who follow in the footsteps of Jesus. Nowadays, numerous crimes are happening everyday, anytime, and everywhere. Why? It is all because people all over the world are becoming corrupt and the fear of God is disappearing. It is a very sad fact.

In other words, the morality of people is disappearing. Since they don’t believe the Bible, they don’t give time to listen to it or even read just a single phrase. People are engaging in sexual immorality which is against God’s word. They don’t hesitate to commit heinous crimes. Everything bad happens because of the absence if God in their lives.

In other words, they don’t want God to rule them. That is why day by day, we hear all kinds of crimes taking place. The Bible which is God’s word is a very important tool to maintain a happy and peaceful life. We can endure present sufferings through the teachings of the Bible. We can love even our neighbors, serve other people, maintain our good morals and always practice right conduct with the help of the Bible.So, without the Bible, people can easily commit detestable acts against God and against other people. The Bible is a good source of good teachings from God.
