Using the Bible to make moral decisions

1. Many Christians believe the Bible is the word of God. It contains teachings on how to live. For example: the New Testament offers moral guidance and teachings on how Christians should behave (e.g. St Peter and St Paul).

2. The Bible has authority from God about what they should believe and how they should live. For example: it contains laws that tell Christians how they should act (e.g. the Ten Commandments). Jesus' teachings and examples are shown which Christians should follow.

3. Some Christians believe that only the Bible should be used to decide what is right, wrong, and what they should believe. The Bible comes from God so it is the only thing that can be trusted. The Bible has been handed down for hundreds of years and has kept Christianson the right path. God's truth does not change.
