The Winds of Philosophy and Methodology - Paul Thompson
Will Scripture dictate how we live our lives or will we rely on the methodologies of men?
Paul Thompson explains in this video that we either will be governed by Scripture alone or we will live and rely upon the methodologies of men. Scripture is sufficient no matter your situation. We ought to be hungering and thirsting to understand what God desires for our life.
It is sufficient to assist fathers to teach their children, it is sufficient for pastors to teach their congregation, it is sufficient to teach married couples about marriage. There is no need to look elsewhere for answers and guidance. If there is an issue in the church or family, Scripture speaks on that. What and who will we adopt as our ultimate source of authority?
Psalms 19:7-10 (NKJV) - "The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb."
