The Bible's Oneness
- The Bible contains sixty-six books written by over forty different
writers from differing backgrounds over a span of two thousand years. Yet
from Genesis to Revelation the Bible proclaims one truth, one plan of
salvation, one code of ethics. Why? Because the Bible is the Word of God; a
God who inspired and guided each human writer to write His Word.
- Kings have
directed campaigns to root the Bible out of their kingdoms. Emperors have
declared all-out wars to destroy the Bible. Yet ever since the days of the
printing press, the Bible remains the most read book throughout the world.
Why? Because the Bible is the Word of God; a God who is almighty to preserve
His Word throughout the ages.
The Bible's Universality
- The Bible speaks to people from all types of cultures, continents,
centuries, backgrounds, languages, ages, occupations, etc. It not only
relates, but it also speaks powerfully to stop sinners, renew hearts and
lead people to God. Why? Because the Bible is the Word of God; a God who
delights to apply His Word, by His Holy Spirit, to the minds and hearts of
of Bible commentaries have been written; countless sermons have been
preached, and yet, new insights are continually drawn from the Bible's
limitless depths. Why? Because the Bible is the Word of God; a God of
infinite wisdom and truth.
The Bible's Honesty
Biographical accounts of the heroes of faith in Scripture differ from
human-authored biographies. Biographies written by people tend to enlarge
their heroes' strengths, minimize their weaknesses and ignore their errors.
The Bible, however, honestly relates David's, Noah's, and Peter's sinful
failures as well as their triumphs of faith. Why? Because the Bible is the
Word of God; a God of perfect honesty and integrity.
The Bible's Truth
writings attempt to minimize mankind's sin and expand upon his goodness;
they attempt to credit man with some aspect of his salvation. This appeals
to people. The Bible, however, teaches that natural man is totally sinful
and cannot save himself; only God's grace can save him. The Bible exalts God
to the highest and humbles man to the lowest. Why? Because the Bible is the
Word of God; a God of infinite justice and graciousness.
The Bible's Historical
- Ancient human
writings generally contain numerous errors. With expanding archeological
evidence, however, biblical truths are being increasingly supported. To
date, no factual evidence has been substantiated that disproves a single,
biblical, historical truth. Why? Because the Bible is the Word of God; a God
who loves truth and is without error.
The Bible's Scientific
- When reading
books written by authors who lived many years ago, we encounter numerous
errors due to the writers' lack of current scientific knowledge. To date,
however, no scientific truth has been discovered that contradicts the Bible.
The Bible, in fact, speaks of several scientific truths prior to their being
discovered by man and believed by societies. Why? Because the Bible is the
Word of God; a God who creates, upholds and understands all parts of His
The Bible's Prophetical
- Human predictions and prophecies generally contain a mixture of truth
and error. Some prove true while others do not. The Bible is full of
prophecy; but no biblical prophesy has yet been proven wrong. Why? Because
the Bible is the Word of God; a God who is all-knowing, who knows the end as
well as the beginning of all things.
The Bible's Personal
- Applications of biblical truth have renewed people's lives, granted new
spiritual life, opened spiritual insights, replaced hate with love,
convicted people of sin, revealed Jesus Christ as the Saviour of sinners and
turned people from self-centered to God-centered lives. Why? Because the
Bible is the Word of God; a God who delights to convert and save sinful
people. Yes, the Bible is the Word of God. Its oneness, indestructibility,
universality, inexhaustibility, honesty, truth, historical accuracy,
scientific accuracy, prophetical accuracy and personal application all
testify of this truth.
