The Bible is written about more than 2000 years ago. Is it still relevant for us today ? Man has advanced tremendously through science, research, industrial revolution, manufacturing, engineering, medical field, energy exploration, computer technology,transportation, satellite and space exploration, DNA etc. So is there a need for the Bible ?
But let us take a fair or unbiased assessment of what man has done so far.With man's progress comes the inevitable pollution. We are changing our world environment, causing global warming, which could be causing weird weather patterns. We are also depleting our natural resources and energy. In short we are exhausting the earth, but we may say we have no choice because we need to survive. What is man planning to do now ? One way is man is trying to explore the new frontier perhaps Mars or anywhere ?
Would you believe the Bible already saw long time ago the problem or problems we have now ? You may say how ?
I hope you have a Bible so you can check this. But if right now you do not have one, let me quote the Bible. In the Old Testament, the book of Isaiah says in chapter 65:17 " For behold , I (God of course is talking) create new heavens and a new earth; And the former shall not be remembered or come to mind.
Also in Isaiah 66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth which I shall make remain before Me," says the LORD.
Even apostle Peter as he wrote in II Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
Apostle John also saw the future as he wrote in Revelation 21:1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.
Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
So now back to our question, Is the Bible still relevant today ? And the answer is yes and even still ahead of our time.
