WHAT CAN I TRUST?
These days, everyone has an opinion. Each religion has a guide of sorts. How do we know what’s true? Here are some facts about the Holy Bible and why we can feel confident it’s not a hoax.
Biblical scrolls found by archaeologists speak of the “earth being suspended in nothing,” “paths of the sea,” the springs of the ocean, the water cycle, and many other scientific facts that were not “discovered” until years, sometimes many centuries later. 1 The Bible also foretold events that
DID occur as described. 1
The Bible was written over a 1,500 year period by 40 plus authors from different countries and continents, yet it maintains a consistent message. Human eyewitness accounts are inaccurate and inconsistent.2 If the Bible was written by humans without God’s direct influence, we would expect differing accounts and inconsistencies.
Non-religious historical documents and archaeological findings fully support the events, cities, wars, and the rise and fall of specific nations recorded in the Bible.3 None of the sciences or historical findings have been able to discredit or disprove the Bible.4
QUESTIONS TO PONDER:
- Are there other historical documents that can claim these same attributes?
- Do I believe the Bible was inspired (directly influenced / guided) by God?
- If the Bible is inspired by God, what does that mean to me?
Read accounts of former atheists who now believe.5 Do their accounts challenge your way of thinking?
