Why I believe the Bible is true
The proof is all around you
Sir Isaac Newton marvelled at the precision of the solar system and gave the glory to God.
This most beautiful System of the Sun, Planets and Comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful being.
Israel’s King David composed
1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
3They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
4Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
When the religious authorities demanded Jesus tell the people to be quiet
Luke 19:40 ‘I tell you,’ he replied, ‘if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.’
Isn’t it interesting that as the church is being silenced by “science”, the rocks displayed in museums cry out the truth of the Bible – that God judged the whole world with a flood that buried so many tremendous creatures?
And when Jesus ascended to Heaven, he said
Acts 1:8 you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.’
As Jesus prophesied, witnesses of his goodness have reached all around the Earth. All around you are people who know God. They have experienced his life-changing goodness. They trust the Bible to be true and have proven for themselves that Jesus is the only way to Heaven. Ask them their story – how knowing God has affected their life. I pray God would empower them to show you why they believe the Bible is true.
