Shut Them Up with Silence?

I once recall hearing a bible professor lecture on the validity of the Holy Bible when he made a statement like, ‘the bible does not defend itself. It presents itself as fact.’ He illustrated his position by pointing out the bible states how the world began with God creating it. That statement from the bible is not debated but presented as truth to be accepted and beleived.

As Christians we engaged in discussions and debates when presenting biblical truths. Note the following verses.

For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of foolish men. Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God. (1 Peter 2:15, 16 NASB)

The disciple [follower of Christ] is instructed to ‘do the right thing.’ A consistent righteous life will eventually persuade the foolish man.

The will of God is to live a life of right [correct] choices. Not to assume anything here lets establish making the right choices as being found in obedience to holy scripture. That is where you find right and wrong.

God’s bondslave is a servant bound to serve God by a freedom chosen by himself/herself. This slave’s free choice was to become a servant of God. His freedom restricts him from the luxuries of evil actions.

Be Freely Bound to Serve God with a Life Lived in the Will of God.

Until next time,
