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.
