One of the first things in the garden that Satan did with Eve was to ask her, “Did God really say that?” and he began to get her to question the reason why she should do as God said instead of just doing what He said. Psalms 119:11 says,
“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”
The Bible is the word of God, a book that God himself inspired more than 40 writers over a period of 1600 years to write so that we could have reliable written guidelines for our lives. Many people have been trying to discredit what the Bible says, referring to it as outdated and filled with contradictions. But no matter what people have had to say in their attempt to discredit the Word of God, it continues to prove itself true and reliable in every situation. Hebrews 4:12 states emphatically that,
“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
No book, no accumulation of words and ideas can impact your life like God’s word. So to those who question the truth of the Bible, ask them if they have read it themselves.
John 16:13 in the ESV says it this way,
“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth,”
Additionally, John 17:17 states,
“Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.”
