The Bible, God's Word, is key to our proper lifestyle for the New Year

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: It might be helpful to just quickly go over some of those major issues for 2018 that we need to discuss this week.

DJ: Well there are so many things that we could touch on but let me just run over a few of the ones that I think are going to continue to be a major issue for the church and the world as a whole. First would be Pope Francis I think will continue to be one of the most controversial Popes and on several fronts. I think the evangelical church will continue to move away from literal grammatical historical method of interpretation. And I think that’s going to lead to increasing attacks on dispensationalism and even leading into some anti-Semitism in various forms maybe even within the church.

I think the Biblical gospel is likely to be under cease like never before especially with the on going resurgent’s of five point Calvinism. Tied to the problem of sound Biblical interpretation one topic that we’ve covered several times is sensationalism in teaching, preaching, and writing concerning prophecy and the end times. I think the LGBT agenda now called the LGBTQ agenda they keep adding letters to it I think this will continue to be front and center in the cultural wars and gender issues are likely to get even more strange as we move forward. And then as part of this issue there’s this on going battle against the Biblical institution of monogamist marriage between a man and a woman is a foundation for society.  

JD: Well there’s the list. We need to stay in the book to see how the Lord deals with each and every one of these issues do we not?  

DJ: We absolutely do and we need to take the Bible seriously and we need to learn how to interpret it correctly.

JD: David James with a Biblical prospective on how to live in the New Year.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The guidebook for life is the word of God the Bible. All scripture is given to us by God through inspiration and is prophet-able that’s II Timothy 3:16. A daily dose of God’s word is that which takes care of all of the issues that will confront us in this New Year. The Bible also tells us what the future will be that’s II Peter 1:19 & 20 where it says we have a more sure word of prophecy thus we need to study it. And then of course as we study it the Bible tells us how to live in this world as we await the call from Jesus to join him in the air at the rapture of the church.
