Ethical Issues

The bible is able to fully equip us not just in what to believe, but how to behave (2 Timothy 3:16-17). In deciding ethical matters Jesus therefore saw the whole bible as authoritative, quoting what its authors penned as nothing less than the very words of God (Matthew 19:4-5 where he equates the narrator of Genesis with “the Creator“).

Similarly, on contemporary issues in which we may be tempted to follow the views of our society, we too must be willing – following Christ’s example – to trust and submit only to what scripture has to say.
