1: How We Christians can Change Ourselves and the World
world situation, no matter what happens.
There are many people who proclaim that they are born-again Christians, true disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, and that they know and deeply understand what the Bible is about, but do not want to act in accordance with it. Is it because they do not understand what the entire Bible is about, or is it because of wealth and achievements that they will leave behind when their lives fade out? As a result, they live contrary to the message and teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ. So it is very important to look at the meaning of the Bible and what it is about!
The Bible was written by holy men, through the inspiration of God, and directed by the Holy Spirit. It is a book written in the Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek languages. The Bible shows the attitude of Jesus Christ our Lord Himself, and the circle of His followers. This book is for us to learn, study and practise, to enable us to follow Him. This Bible is something in which we can have confidence, so that we can place our hope in Him. Truly, we believe that the Bible cannot be broken and nobody, not even an angel of Heaven, could have the authority to correct or modify its message.
The main ideal of the Bible is the work of God in delivering humans from the power of sin and death, through Jesus Christ, our redeemer and deliverer. We, the people of God, are not forced to accept the messages in it. The Bible sets out the Christian doctrine, and we place our hope in it by following Jesus Christ’s footsteps. However, declaring that we are born-again Christians and taking the consequences of this, we have to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, our life and His teachings, by believing and practising.
What is the Bible all about?
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. (John1:1–5)
