The Bible is relevant. We don’t make it relevant. We don’t allow it to be relevant. It is inherently relevant.
Along these lines, I just read this brief and interesting opinion piece, “Does the Bible Matter in the 21st Century?,” in which the author contends that the Bible is a profoundly important book today. The author makes a case for the importance of an ethic informed by the Bible. There are a number of caveats to such a statement. Nevertheless, the point of the piece is well taken, especially as it pertains to marriage.
