The idea that God had when He gave the nation of Israel His morals and ethics, they did not have a choice to modify them in any way. God wanted them to be the model for all the nations of the world for all generations and prove His wisdom superior to any other for a witness of His Supremacy and to reveal His perfect character and His design for all of His creation. No other wisdom is accurate or adequate enough to accomplish this.
Between 1560 and 1599, The Geneva Bible was providentially unleashed upon a dark, discouraged, downtrodden English speaking world. Just when it looked as if the Machiavellian, Divine Right kings, such as the Tudors of England, were about to drive Christendom back to the days of Caesar worship, a Bible appeared that set the stage for a Christian Reformation of life and culture the likes of which the world had never seen. By the time of the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588, just 28 years after the first printing of the Geneva Bible, it was already being said of the English that they were becoming a “people of the Book.” The results of a people reading and obeying the Word of God were the explosion of faith, character, the first missionary movement in history, literature, economic blessing, and political and religious freedom.
