There are a lot of books out there and many of them say different things that don’t agree with each other. It’s hard to know which one is right! The same is true in religious books. Christians rely on the Bible as our way of knowing what God is like and what He expects from us. Other religions say that the Bible isn’t true. How can we know that it is?
There are a few ways that people who study the Bible use to test if its correct. They look at the events and people from history mentioned in the Bible to make sure they actually happened and existed. We’re also able to look at the predictions in the Bible and see that most of them have already come true. God keeps all of His promises and He cannot lie!
Another way we can know that the Bible is true is because the Bible says so. Now, some think this doesn’t make sense and lots of other books would claim that they’re true too. But nothing in the Bible contradicts anything else that the Bible says. It all supports itself.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 says that God authored the Bible and that we can trust it. Hebrews 4:12 says that the Holy Spirit speaks to us through the Bible. There are a ton of verses in God’s Word that help to understand this more, but let’s stick with these for now. Can you find any more by doing your own search?
Keep working on memorizing 1 Peter 1:25 “but the word of the Lord remains forever. And this word is the good news that was preached to you.” Do you have it yet?
