The Truth is from God. It is never archaic. Neither is it ever anything less than explosive in power. It is the dynamite of God and the church is always right to seek its abundant wisdom and unmatched lead.
The Truth will not be turned aside by the strongest rules of men. That's why the Church of Christ is in perpetual stirring because the Word refuses to be denied. It sets people free.
Man-made laws have imposed themselves as the True Grid. Those hawking the Bible as the Standard with warnings of Do not add to or take away from the Word are very likely to impose the True Grid to keep the Bible saying what tickles their ears. BTW....we are as guilty of having our ears tickled as any religious brand I ever met. We've used that Timothy passage to apply it to our denominational friends when we are the ultimate abusers.
True Grid says things to the Bible which did not come from the Bible...but it sounds so.....biblical.
Here are two examples of True Grid: (1) our hermeneutic never came from God; but from man's judgment, and (2) when that grid won't quite do it for us to get our way we impose the flag of all flags....Well, it just isn't expedient. Really?
Take a look. Hermeneutic and expedient are not Bible words. Yet they serve as the True Grid to do what? Both are supposed to allow us a clear conscience to continue to tickle our own ears. This is a blatant violation of the use of the Word of God. "Truth" is what will set us free. "True Grid" is what will keep us captive.
