On the Making of Books and Blogs


Posted by Matt Postiff August 5, 2011 on Matt Postiff's Blog under GeneralĀ 

The Spirit of God tells us through Solomon:

"And further, my son, be admonished by these. Of making many books there is no end; and much study is wearisome to the flesh. Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man's all." (Ecclesiastes 12:12-13 NKJV)

My wife Naomi and I were talking about this recently, and she wrote to me the following paragraph.

"I also recently came to the realization that of the making of blogs there is also no end! I guess they fit right in there with the books. While it is encouraging to read Christian blogs and books, we should always remember that, no matter what advice or opinion we may read, the end of any matter is to fear God and keep His commandments. There are so many people who are influenced by books they read--particularly books on parenting, husband/wife relationships, church matters, etc... There are lots of wonderful resources out there with good and godly advice and encouragement. But we must remember the only infallible guide is the Bible. Sometimes book-advice can have implications or results that can also produce fruit that is contrary to the Word of God. We must make sure that, rather than following any given book, that we are following THE Book—the Bible."

This goes along with what I've said for a long time: If you don't have time to read the Bible, you don't have time to read anything else.

The Bible is the sufficient rule of faith and practice for us in parenting, marriage, church, and all things.
