‘Supernaturally Mind-Blowing’: David Limbaugh on Amazing Proof of ‘Living Word of God’ By Billy Hallowell for Faith Wire
Author David Limbaugh, brother of the late Rush Limbaugh, believes there are some “supernaturally mind-blowing” realities about the Bible and its relevance to the human experience — elements he has extensively explored throughout his expansive writing career.
In particular, Limbaugh, who co-authored the new book, “The Resurrected Jesus: The Church in the New Testament,” alongside his daughter, Christen Limbaugh Bloom, said he finds the timeless truths of Scripture and their persistent relevance captivating.
“Every time you read Scripture, you may read it in a different context. You get a different insight … which proves that it’s the living Word of God,” he told CBN’s Faithwire, noting it is both enduring and unchangeable. “The Word doesn’t change, but it meets you in whatever circumstances you are and it’s God’s speaking directly to you, which I find supernaturally mind-blowing.”
Limbaugh went on to note the Bible isn’t “some abstract set of theological concepts or moral principles,” and that it is told through real people and their struggles. And he said the Apostle Paul, whose epistles are at the core of “The Resurrected Jesus,” offers much for humans to learn and glean.
Limbaugh pointed back to the early church fathers to illustrate how the truths embedded throughout Scripture prove “human nature never changes,” specifically highlighting the astute knowledge and understanding of these early church fathers.
“These people were every bit as smart as we are,” he said. “When it comes to insights into people, I’m not even sure we’re as smart as they were.”
These individuals dealt with many of the same issues we face today, with Scripture showing how the Apostles also faced these plights. For instance, Paul and other church leaders were forced to deal with unbiblical perspectives and false teachings pervading the church.
