Why I Believe the Bible Is Real?
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
(2 Timothy 3:16–17 NIV)
Why do I believe so deeply that the Bible is the Word of God? Let me share with you some of the most meaningful reasons.
• The phrase, “Thus saith the Lord” appears more than two thousand times in the Old Testament. God was speaking!
• The Bible was written more than sixteen hundred years ago by about forty different writers, with a single theme and author (the Lord). Though at first read some things look contradictory, when we accept Christ, the Holy Spirit gives us understanding of how it all fits together. No group of mortals could possibly produce such a book.
• You can study a passage you’ve known all your life, and the Holy Spirit will suddenly give you fresh insight. There is an inexhaustible richness in the Scripture that is unlike any other book!
• The Bible applies to any race, any tribe, any ethnic group, and any age group in any time. Its application is universal!
