The Bible’s Mic Drop

Mic DropRecently, during his final White House correspondents’ dinner, President Barack Obama ended his speech with “Obama Out,” then he dropped the microphone and walked away.

A “mic drop” is a modern parallel to spiking a football. It is a gesture that signals the end of a statement so definitive that it cannot possibly be followed. Nothing more to say. Notable mic-droppers over time have included everyone from Eddie Murphy to Chris Rock to the Arctic Monkeys.

The Bible is the authoritative Word of God

When God finished giving His written Word to man in the form of the Old and New Testaments, which we call the Bible, He also said in effect, “God Out”, and then added in the last book of Revelation:

“If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life…” – Revelation 22:18-19

The term “sola Scriptura” (Latin: the Bible alone) is a phrase that Bible scholars have used for centuries to describe the truth that the Bible, and it alone, is this final authority in all matters of faith and morals.

In today’s modern culture of moral relevance where anything goes, there is no right or wrong, if it feels good do it, the Bible stands against such thinking. True followers of Christ should never deviate from God’s commandments to abstain from immorality and sexual sin, for instance, no matter how many other people around you are doing it. If God called it a sin in the Bible, it is still a sin. Fornication, adultery, homosexuality is still immoral. Time hasn’t changed this fact, nor has God relaxed His demand for a life of holiness from His people.

Our Lord Jesus Christ, Himself, affirmed the Bible. In His prayer for believers in John 17:17, He said, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” The Holy Scripture, is the believer’s standard of truth.

Beware of allowing post-modernist thinking that has subtlely crept into the church today to influence your view of the Bible and morality. What God has said in the past is still true today. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4).

God has said it, I believe it, that settles it. Mic drop.
