Biblical Integration Information:
All Creation is held together by the Living Word and is an expression of the Word of God displaying order, design, complexity, and Truth. God communicates His plan, purpose, and provision personally through the written and Living Word and has set patterns and guidelines for human communication. Partially through the skillful use of languages, we can live out the Great Commission and the Greatest Commandment. Rather than succumbing to our fallen nature or focusing on forms or subjects of communication that are in opposition to God, we should seek to grow in wisdom through our study and use of languages while allowing the Holy Spirit to change our hearts bringing our communication in alignment with the person of Jesus Christ. We are responsible to God for evaluating our communication and literacy choices by the standards of God’s Word and using them clearly, creatively, and concisely to deepen our relationship with God and with our fellow-man.
