If this blog were a Christian, this would be its “Life Verse.”
“Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint;
But happy is he who keeps the law.”
When you were a kid, you thought throwing rocks was awesome, until someone told you not to do it anymore. Or until you threw a rock into a tree over your elementary school playground and watched it descend through the leaves and land squarely on your friend Chris’ head, requiring him to get stitches. That’s just an example — not based on personal experience whatsoever.
As we got older, we developed a better understanding of what’s right and wrong based on trial and error as well as common sense. Generally, that compass is built into us, but because we’re human, it’s not perfect. We need a standard.
The Bible has a sturdy infrastructure of standards that we’re supposed to follow. Most people would agree with the majority of them, but there are several laws in the Bible that people vehemently disagree with. And there are even more that are completely impossible to uphold.
However, without the revelation of these standards, how are people to know what the Bible says about how to act? A lot of the instructions in the Bible are covered up by lack of awareness, a cloud of societal or cultural distractions, or outright ignorance. Hopefully, trapword.com provides clarity to a seemingly archaic book and makes it palatable to the average person (who, frankly, isn’t reading the Bible at all).
Ultimately, everything this site stands for points to Jesus Christ, who fulfilled the entirety of the law with His death and resurrection. If anything revealed on here is too “heavy,” join the club.
