How valuable is the Bible to us today?
In the movie “Book of Eli” it tells the story of Eli (Denzel Washington) in a post-apocalyptic world. A man charged by God with the responsibility of protecting the last remaining Bible and bringing it to a safe place. In the story it relates how valuable the Bible is to Eli and how he protected it from all kinds of violent people. Literally with his life until the very end. Eli had memorized the entire Bible and until his dying breath, retold the entire Bible to be recorded for prosperity. How valuable is the Bible to us today? Would we value the Bible so much that we are willing to live our whole life just to protect it? And die doing it? The movie “Book of Eli” subtly challenges the discerning movie-goer about the value of the Bible. Did you know that in real life, Denzel Washington is a devoted Christian who reads his Bible every day and attends a Pentecostal church? 2 Timothy 3:16-17 - All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
