One big challenge of the Christian life is to courageously stand our ground regarding the veracity of God’s word, while living in a world which makes a sport of mocking, maligning and ridiculing it. It is helpful to regularly study and frequently recall how the Bible stands apart from all other religious texts, and how God has gone to such great lengths to underscore its supernatural origins through so many exacting predictive prophecies. The Scripture also provides us perspective by reminding us that all people (not just Christians) will one day be held accountable for the truth contained in God’s word. Jesus said, “The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day” (John 12:48). Being certain about the truth and importance of the words contained in the Bible should not only instill us with fortitude when the world mocks Scripture, but should also prompt us to lovingly seek to persuade people to soberly reconsider the truths they now dismiss.
