The Bible inspires nearly every major value of Western Civilization today. This short yet thorough video is a masterpiece. It artfully covers thousands of years of history and displays how the age-old wisdom of the Bible inspires our everyday lives today.
The Basis of Western Values
- Value of Human Life
- World Peace
- Justice and Equality
- Universal Education
- Social Responsibility
Are any of the above values very important to you? Well, if yes, where do they come from?
Are they ideals that we picked up from the Romans? Do they originate from the Greeks? What about the ancient Muslims or Crusaders? From where did these ideas come from?
The answer is – the Jews. Yes, that’s where they come from.
More specifically, these ideas stem from the Bible.
Eternal Ethics of the Bible
The origin of all of these ideas comes from Mt. Sinai. God delivered the commandments along with their explanations at Mt. Sinai.
The Jewish values are more than 3,000 years old, and they are eternal. Nothing that the Bible-observant people live by today is based in “new” values. It is the “age-old” gift from the Lord itself that we use to this very day.
Educated Jewish families for thousands of years is not a new concept. It has been going on for time immemorial. Social responsibility is not a new phenomenon for Bible believers. It is an inspired idea that originates from God – it is a commandment.
There are no universal principles that the majority of the Western world believes in today that do not go back to the Bible.
