Why I Believe the Holy Bible

"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."
-- Psalm 119:105

Why I believe the Bible is the Word of God:

  1. Fulfilled Prophecy
    Revealing the future is child's play for "the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity." For he says, "Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:"Isaiah 46:10
  2. Unity of the Scriptures
    The books of the Bible were written over a period of approximately 1500 years by over forty human authors in three different languages, and yet there is a unified theme. Men have tried to ban it, burn it, and control it, and yet it has outlasted them all!
  3. Accuracy of the Scriptures
    Although the Bible is not primarily a history book, it contains accurate historical accounts. Likewise, the Bible is not a book of science, and yet it contains revelations of scientific knowledge that surpasses the science of its day:
    • The book of Job is believed by many scholars to be the oldest of the writings. At the time when Hindu's wrote that the world was resting on an elephants back, Job reveals, "...[God] hangeth the world upon nothing." A statement that we know today to be completely accurate! (see Job 26.7)
  4. Power
    The words of the Bible are not just empty words on a page. They have the power to transform the life of the most wretched sinner (like me).
    "it is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life." John 6.63
    "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10.17
