Terry Virgo on avoiding drift away from the Bible

I am continuing to enjoy the installments of Terry’s video series.  This segment talks about the various ways in which we can find ourselves drifting away from absolute Biblical truth.  I do encourage you to watch all these videos.  Here are some extracts from today’s video:

“In an endeavor to be relevant . . . not just quaint and supposedly out of date…it is possible to move away from the unchanging truth. It is important to hold to Scriptures relevance…we have to work hard to translate Bible stories into the present world. Or it could be in an endeavor to give more time to worship, enjoying the presence of God, charismatic experience, you think we don’t have time for the preaching. We have always worked hard at being Spirit and Word. The experience of the Spirits presence, but also the preaching of truth. Without this we would be vulnerable to drift. . . You can find yourself being pushed away from biblical norms into reflecting the culture, being more acceptable to the man on the street, more plausible, therefore you leave some of the more difficult parts of Scripture . . . The Bible is an objective, authentic authority, it is not really for us to make choices about our preferences. . . We have tried hard to submit ourselves to what the Bible says. . . What men and women need is to know what God thinks and what God says, and the Bible perfectly expresses that for us”
