Building faith on the framework of God's Word

Why You Can Trust the Bible – Part 1

(2 Timothy 3:16-17 TPT)  Every Scripture has been written by the Holy Spirit, the breath of God. It will empower you by its instruction and correction, giving you the strength to take the right direction and lead you deeper into the path of godliness.  (17)  Then you will be God’s servant, fully mature and perfectly prepared to fulfill any assignment God gives you. 

(Matthew 24:35 NKJV) Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.

(Matthew 24:35 TPT) The earth and sky will wear out and fade away before one word I speak loses its power or fails to accomplish its purpose.”

  1. It is historically accurate.

(Psalms 33:4 NIV) For the word of the LORD is right and true;

Three tests in order to be historically accurate: 

    1. Eyewitness Accounts
    2. Recorded and copied with extreme care.
    3. Archaeological confirmation.
  1. It is scientifically accurate.

God created all of the scientific laws. 

(Psalms 148:5-6 NLT) Let every created thing give praise to the LORD, for He issued His command, and they came into being. He set them in place forever and ever. His decree will never be revoked.

Scientific things that were believed when then Bible was written are proven wrong by what the Bible says: 

  • The earth was flat. 

(Isaiah 40:22 NIV) God sits enthroned above the circle of the earth… 

  • The earth is held up or suspended on something.

(Job 26:7 NIV) He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing.

  • The numbers of stars can be counted. 

(Jeremiah 33:22 NLT) And as the stars of the sky cannot be counted… 

  • Too much blood made you sick. 

(Leviticus 17:11 NLT) …for the life of the body is in its blood.

  • Man cannot pass disease to another human being. 

(Leviticus 13:4 NLT) “…the priest will quarantine the person for seven days.

(Psalms 12:6 NIV) And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible, like gold refined seven times.
