Everything I believe is biblical. You know the funny thing? There are a lot of people who believe VERY different things from me AND everything they believe is also biblical. You might be thinking “how can you believe something and someone else believe something contradictory and you both be biblical?”
I think maybe the confusion comes from what the word biblical means. Most people think that biblical means that a person reads the Bible, understands what it is saying, and then believes whatever truth they may have found through that process. In reality this is not what a biblical view is.
A biblical view is a view that you can defend with Bible verses. The real goal is not to learn from and develop an understanding from the Bible, but to use the Bible to defend whatever it is that we believe. If you don’t like secular music tell people that it is biblical to only listen to Christian music, I mean, obviously Psalm 1:1 states that “Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,” but if you think it’s ok, you go to Matt 15:11 and remind someone that Jesus said that “it is not what goes into the mouth … that defiles a man.” (but in this case we apply it to the ear).
That is just one example. Basically, whatever you believe, you can find Bible verses to defend it. Then your views are biblical. It is important that we don’t let this true definition get out there for the general public to understand, because, by keeping people ignorant, when we tell them our views are “biblical” it makes it sound like we got them from the Bible, not that we put them into the Bible, and then we will seem more believable.
So, keep this post a secret. Thanks!
