How does God’s truth inform all of life? Dr. Alistair Begg explains how God’s truth has implications for everything.
The truth of God should inform all of our lives. I’m not sure that everybody has that as an understanding of how the truth of God actually does impact our view of everything—our view of science, of technology, of ecology, of life, of marriage, and of everything else. And how it does this is simply through the constraining influence of the Bible itself. We know that all truth is God’s truth, and yet the way in which we get to an understanding of both its essence and its application is that the Scriptures are brought to bear upon all of these things—not in terms of proof texts or trying to find a verse that fits an idea, but rather the comprehensive understanding of how God has revealed Himself—the way He has created, the way He sustains the universe. All of these things, then, are part and parcel of His truth’s influencing both who we are and what we do.
