Why Trust The Bible?

All throughout history we have had many people cast doubt on the bible and the great God that inspired it. Many have called God a liar, twisting and contorting his words and actions without really understanding the biblical circumstance. This criticism is often to further their own agenda. In light of this slander and persecution of God those trusting in him must be steadfast. People must understand that the bible has been preached for thousand of years. The book of Genesis dating as early as 1450 B.C., and its stories dating as far back as 6000 B.C. contest to its age. The Bible is not a fairy tale. It is a truth that people have found strength in for thousands of years. Matthew 24:35 say’s “heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” The 40 penmen of the Bible where truly convinced that God was delivering to his creation a urgent message. 2 Peter 1:21 says, “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” Most all of these holy men eventually died for their faith. We must understand that the Bible is not a new thing, it is though, a compilation of 66 books penned by 40 different men over thousands of years. This Holy book has stood the test of “time”. God word is something we can rely on no matter the circumstance. We must not allow people, no matter who they may be, to lure us away from Gods true purpose and the truth found in his word. 1 Corinthians 3:19 says, “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God…” Humanity must repent, turn away from the wisdom of this world, and realize that the God of this world will not be mocked. Galatians 6:7 says, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” In this life we are posed with all sorts if choices, some choices have greater repercussions than others, but none greater than this. When we say no to God we are saying that we can take care of ourselves, that we don’t need God, but the reality is that we all need God. The Bible says “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Just like food sustains our physical life, God and his truth sustains our eternal soul. We can not live without God. Listen, this is God’s creation and he can do what he wants with it. Thankfully he chose to sustain it and save it. It is our responsibility to find out who God is and what he want with our life. Understand that disobedience is sin and God will not tolerate sin. Remember, the choice is yours! The title of this article is Why Should I Trust The God Of The Bible. I hope to write a series of article that reveal the divine truth found in the Bible. In these articles I will expose the Logical, archaeological, historical, scientific, and prophetic evidence revealed to us. True biblical Christianity is not a leap of faith. God has given us very real and tangible reason to trust him. I hope that through these article your Christian faith will be strengthened or maybe you will be thoroughly persuade to trust Jesus Christ as your savior.

How To Debate The Evolutionist

In today's society many find themselves at a cross roads. In many of our minds we find ourselves wrestling over this debate of intelligent design or evolution. At the outset lets me first explain each of these points. Intelligent design reveals to us that their is a supreme being who created time, space, and matter. This creator made it fully functional from the smallest particles to the vast universe. This is referred to as the creationist world view. Now the evolutionist believes something totally different. The theory of evolution teaches that there is no supreme power, but that all things came together by random chance. The catalyst is natural selection (survival of the fittest) and random mutations within a organism. This is called the humanist world view. This brief overview help us to see the vast difference between the to beliefs. Often times people are very closed minded about these issues. As Christians we must approach these issues with a loving heart. Today modern science has chosen to adopt the humanist world view. (Read Humanist Manifesto) Influenced by modern science our school systems have began indoctrinating our children. It is our responsibility as parents to understand the subject so we can clearly and concisely teach our children the truth. As you begin to study evolution you will see that their are many holes and great assumptions that are made. Here are some tips when debating these topics.

When discussing evolution you must first define the terms. The word evolution is a tricky word which carries at least six different meanings. It is important to understand what they mean when they discuss evolution.

1) Cosmic Evolution- This is the origin of time, space, and matter. The humanist wants you to believe a big bang created everything (Big Bang Theory). Please understand that they truly believe that nothing exploded and created everything. How can nothing explode. This is not science. This is what someone believes not what they know. Search Alan Guth and Scientific American for more on this radical view.

2) Chemical Evolution- This is the origin of higher elements from hydrogen. The Big Bang only explains the origin of hydrogen and maybe a little helium. The question is how did all the other 105 elements on the periodic table evolve. You can't fuse the heavier elements past iron (fe).

3) Stellar and Planetary Evolution- No one has ever seen a planet form and organize itself into an orbit, nor has anyone ever seen a star form. They can observe a star exploding about every 30 years or so, but they never observe one forming. They estimate that their are
70,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars in our galaxy. If the universe is 20 billion years old it would take 6 1/2 million star forming every minute to create what we see today. So we should see 6 1/2 million new stars every minute if the theory of uniformitarianism is true which influenced Charles Darwin(the founder of the evolutionary theory) and many others.

4) Organic Evolution- This is the origin of life. Science teaches that the earth formed about 4.6 billion years ago. Torrential rains began to fall creating a primordial soup. Out of this primordial "soup" life formed about 3.5 billion years ago. The problem is that science has never observed non-living material produce living material. To make this even more unbelievable is this non-living material now living had to find food for energy and a mate to reproduce. Food for thought, if science was ever able to create life it would only prove that it take intelligences to create not chance.

5)Macro-Evolution- This is the process by which one organism changes into a completely different organism. This is believed to have occurred over billions of years through tiny mutations within the organism. Yet mutations are rarely, if ever, beneficial to the organism. A eye without a Cornea does not work properly. A bird with one wing can't fly and will most likely die. I could go on and on. Mutations can not explain evolution. Science has yet to discover a "missing link" or transitional species. This has posed a big problem for the evolutionist. They have produced many frauds and fakes which still find their way into the textbooks. Concerning the so called cavemen you must understand that all that is found is the fossilized bone the rest is purely the work of the artist. If the princess kisses the frog and it turns into a prince instantly its called a fairy tale, but if it happens over billions of years we can some how wrap our minds around it and except it. Listen Macro-Evolution has never been observed. It can only truly be excepted by faith.

6) Micro-Evolution- This is variations within a organism. This is observable science. I think we can all agree that their are many different kinds of dogs out there, but dogs only reproduce dogs never cats. Science would have us believe Macro-Evolution is Micro-Evolution over a long period of time. What we must understand is that all variations have limitations. Farmers can breed bigger or smaller horses, but they always get a horse. Many bug may become resistant to pesticides, but never to the heel of a shoe. For more information on this visit

Notice that the first five meanings of evolution are purely religious. Religion is defined as the belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers [evolution] regarded as creator and governor of the universe. I am not against science. I love science. Although I did not complete my degree I studied science for three years in collage. What I don't like is the false information and lies that continue to bombard our children in the public schools. Science is defined as the systematized knowledge derived from observation and study etc. Evolution is not science. It can not be tested or observed. Science will claim to be self correcting and ever changing. My question is when will it correct the greatest blunder in scientific history the Evolutionary Theory.

In recent times many questions have been raised about Barack Obama. Though he is in many way a stranger to us all, he seem to gather the support of many people. I would advise voter to be very cautious when voting for someone they are not sure about. Obama's change may not be the best answer for America in these difficult times. Now, could Barach Obama be the anti-christ. Though he may carry many of the traits of this prophetic character he does not meet the requirements for the anti-christ. Daniel 11:17 says speaking of the anti-christ "Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all." We find here in this verse that the anti-christ could very well be a man of Jewish decent. As far as I know Obama is not a Jew. We also see that he has no desire of women. I do not know if this verse is referring to homosexuality or that he is to busy with the affairs of this world to pursue a relationship, but we do know that Obama is not a homosexual (though he does support their alternate lifestyle) and does have a desire for women hence his marriage to Michelle Obama. We also find that even in his confused theology he still regards a god, maybe not the God (what I mean is the only one true God), so, even if he is a Muslim or a very confused christian (which is hard to imagine) he still seems to acknowledge some form of god. As you can see, though Obama does speak marvellous thing making promises that he can not and will not be able to keep, he still misses the marks required for the true anti-christ according to the book of Daniel. I would like to note that for the true christian, those that have believed upon Jesus Christ, they do not have to worry about the anti-christ. According to 2 Thessalonians 2:7,8 the Holy Spirit which is restraining the anti-christ will "be taken out of the way" which will also include the removal of the church in the rapture and "then shall that Wicked be revealed" (speaking of the anti-christ). But, for those that are concerned in these "latter day" I would keep an eye on the reviving Roman Empire or what is know known as the Europe Union it could be this final gentile kingdom prophesied about in Daniel chapter 2 and 7. I pray that we keep our eyes on The Real Hope of the world the Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.
