'How can you believe the Bible? It’s just a book written by men.' Have you ever faced that question? Has it ever left you in silence? Has it ever left you in doubt? When you face such doubts or opposition, LOOK TO THE BIBLE AS THE TRUE AND TRUSTWORTHY WORD OF GOD. Yes, the Bible speaks for itself. Who do you most want to take the stand in a trial? …The person on trial! And God is pleased to take the stand and speak for Himself. How many critics and defenders of God’s Word have come and gone? But the Word of God remains. That in itself is powerful testimony that this is more than just the word of men.
Marvel at how the Bible speaks with one Voice (resonating through some 40 authors over about 1600 years), pointing to salvation in Jesus. Peter, an eyewitness of Jesus’ glory, wrote, "And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place." (II Peter 1:16-21) This light penetrates the darkness of our sinfulness with the good news of forgiveness and eternal life in Him who was crucified for us and raised to life. This is a light the world cannot extinguish, and it brings a hope, peace, and joy that the world cannot give and the world cannot break. For these reasons and many more, you can LOOK TO THE BIBLE AS THE TRUE AND TRUSTWORTHY WORD OF GOD.
