Does the Bible Have Authority Over Our Lives?

Book of scriptures Authority and Moral Relativism

Does the Book of scriptures have authority over our lives? In the event that it does – is it outright? Why, or what difference would it make?

These are significant inquiries, since individuals without a Scriptural perspective don’t have motivation to expose their qualities to any higher power than themselves. To this end moral relativism is such an issue, i.e., on the off chance that there could be no more significant position, no essential fact of the matter – why should you force your qualities on me? Everything gives you the option to say to me your ethics are preferred or more significant over mine?


In the event that there is no Overseeing Authority, and no Outright Power – I don’t reserve the option to state my qualities over yours. Yet, in the event that the qualities aren’t mine, however begin with One who Has outright power, then that is something else altogether.

Moral Relativism in History

Moral relativism has been creating for quite a while. As a matter of fact, it began in the Nursery of Eden when the snake suggested the conversation starter to our most memorable guardians – “Hath God said?” – and afterward proceeded to upbraid God and His thought processes in considering forcing His qualities (His position) over theirs. Adam and Eve picked their own qualities (self-magnification) – when they decided to assume they could “be like God” by eating the prohibited natural product (an endeavor to be more commended than they were), and attested their wills over God’s. We as a whole know the outcome.

This soul went on in Scriptural times during the time of the Appointed authorities, when, “In those days there was no lord in Israel; everybody made the wisest decision in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25). No Lord, for example no more significant position = no reasonable norm for everybody to live by.

It went on with Shakespeare, who was brought into the world in what is known as the Elizabethan period, or the English Renaissance (1558-1603). One of Shakespeare’s most cited lines is expressed by the person Polonius in the play Hamlet “To thine own self be valid, and it should follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be misleading to any man.” While on a superficial level this looks right, it prompts an issue when what is consistent with one man (self) winds up contrary to what is consistent with another. Everybody’s “own reality” doesn’t work. Since what happens when they struggle? Whose values make the biggest difference then, at that point? See what occurs(?) – we’re once again at the starting point once more.

The soul of “my will as preeminent” went on with Aleister One true God Crowley, a mid twentieth century English essayist and stately performer, who fostered a religion called Thelema. Crowley’s works assumed a significant part in what was to come to pass in music and culture all through the remainder of the 100 years. His religions principal subject was “Do What Thou Wither Will Be The Entire Of The Law”. Crowley was worshipped by famous melodic gatherings like The Beatles, Drove Airship, The Entryways, et al. “Do what thou wither before long transformed into the 1960’s colloquialism “Do whatever you might want to do”.

This was trailed by post-innovation, which is the prevailing society delivered by state funded training in the last twentieth and mid 21st 100 years. Present innovation’s mantra appears to be on be that there are no ethical absolutes and everybody has their own existence. Since everybody has their own world then it essentially follows that nobody has the privilege to guarantee their existence to be more right or fitting than any other individual’s.

The Holy book Is Outright

Which carries us to the Holy book, or, all the more explicitly – the Lord of the Good book.

You know, the Holy book is an intriguing book. There isn’t anything else like it in all of mankind’s set of experiences. There’s nothing really close, as a matter of fact!

To me the single most noteworthy thing what isolates it from any remaining books is the cases it makes for itself. The Book of scriptures unequivocally claims to be enlivened by God – our Maker – the Maker of the whole universe.
