Ben Patterson in his book, “Theocentric Preaching,” writes, concerning the current phobia to be “relevant”:

“This particular temptation used to be the sole province of the liberal theological tradition. But in the past few years, it has gained a number of victims in the evangelical community . . . The sin courted in this temptation is the presumption that it is the Bible that is dead and we who are alive . . .

Is the Bible relevant? Dr. Bernard Ramm once remarked, ‘There is nothing more relevant than the truth.’ The longer I preach, the more convinced I become that the best thing I can do is simply get out of Scripture’s way.”
