God is our most basic need. He reveals Himself and His will in the Bible (Ecc. 12:13). The Bible is truth and fits man's unchanging needs: God is, the Bible is God's word, Jesus Christ is God's Son, Man's purpose is to love God and his fellowman (1 Pet. 1:23).

If the Bible outdated and irrelevant? God and His truth are never outdated (Psa. 90:1). The dangers of sin do not change. The problem of sin and evil are resolved by the Bible, NOT by science, medicine, or technology.
