How should church members have tried to find out what Jesus would have done in their situations? They should have read there Bible. 2Peter 1:3 says, By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. This verse means that every single question we have is answered in the Bible. God has also given us instructions to how to live our lives like Jesus did through his word, the Bible.
