The Bible speaks to everything

Mark Ward opens his blog post about how to do a biblical study on the topic of abortion with the following assertion:

The Bible speaks in some way to anything you can think of, but it doesn’t speak explicitly to everything you can think of.

He’s right. As I mentioned, his post is specifically about how to study what the Scripture has to say about abortion, not explicitly, but implicitly. This reminds me of how in Worship in Song I compare this very issue–how the Bible speaks to abortion–with how the Bible addresses the topic of music. The Bible doesn’t deal with the subject explicitly, but it certainly does so implicitly. And a healthy understanding of the authority and sufficiency of Scripture will lead us to want to submit everything–including abortion and music–to biblical authority.
