Example text

It is important to note here that when Paul said that ‘every scripture is inspired by God and profitable” for holy living, the New Testament was not as yet completed, gathered together, and existing THE ENTIRE BIBLE IS TODAYS STANDARD 25 as a published collection of books. Paul’s direct reference was to the well known Old Testament scriptures, and indirectly to the soon-to-be-completed New Testament, By inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Paul taught New Testament believers that every single Old Testament writing was profitable for their present instruction in righteousness, if they were to be completely furnished for every good work required of them by God.

In all of these contexts the kind of people we are, the kind of goals we have, and the kind of rules we observe in decision-making are ethical matters. AU human behavior and character is subject to appraisal according to moral value; every one of our attainments (whether they be aims that are fulfilled or character traits that are developed) and every one of our actions (whether they be mental, verbal, or bodily behavior) expresses an unspoken code of right and wrong.

The entire Bible speaks of God, and we read that the Iiving and true God is holy, just, good, and perfect. These are attributes of an ethical character and have moral implications for us. The entire Bible speaks of the works of God, and we read that all of His works are performed in wisdom and righteousness – again, ethical qualities. The world which God has created, we read, reveals God’s moral requirements clearly and continuously. History, which God governs by His sovereign decree, will manifest His glory, wisdom and justice.
