We learned this week in our 40 Days in the Word study reasons we can trust the Bible. Let’s look at two today
I CAN TRUST THE BIBLE BECAUSE…
1. IT IS HISTORICALLY ACCURATE, and not just doctrinally .. but every other area too! Why? Because God CANNOT LIE! Hebrews 6:18 “It is impossible for God to lie!”We can follow the Bible because in Psalm 33:4“The Word of the Lord is right and true.” He tells us so.
2. IT IS SCIENTIFICALLY ACCURATE! Psalm 148:5-6(NLT) tells us, Let every created thing give praise to the Lord,for he issued his command, and they came into being. He established them forever and forever. His orders will never be revoked.”
Science constantly changes! In 1861 the French Academy of Science published “51 Incontrovertible Scientific Facts that prove the Bible is Wrong” Today- all 51 facts have been proven wrong by SCIENCE!
Adrian Rogers said, “When a scientist agrees with the Bible, it doesn’t increase my trust in the Bible. It just raises my opinion of that scientist!
For 1000s of yrs everyone believed…
1. The earth was flat! Yet, 2,600 yrs ago Isaiah said, “God is enthroned above the sphere of the earth”
2. The earth has to be held up! In Job 26:7(NLT) “God stretches the sky over empty space and hangs the earth on nothing!” How did Job know that? God told him.
3. The number of stars could be counted! 2,600 yrs ago Jeremiah wrote, “The number of stars are infinite”
There many, many more examples, but just remember:
Proverbs 30:5 “Every word of God is flawless
Ps. 12:6 “The words of the Lord are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay and purified seven times!”
Be wise today and always – trust the Word.
