Why do I choose to believe the Bible?

  • A Changed Life

    Jen got a Call from a student at SRU.  She got to hear a story of a female SRU student that she had talked to a few times.  The young lady had heard the gospel while talking to Jen on campus.  She realized the evil in her homosexual relationship.  She repented and placed her trust in Jesus.  She started going to a good church during the summer.  She decided to go to a different college this year, so she would not be tempted by the LGBTQ culture at SRU.  We are so grateful to God.   Please pray for her.

    The First week in August I spent in NYC.  We had 2 days of training for the Campus Leaders and then several days of outreach.  We did many interesting outreaches on the subways.  We had several sinners anonymous meetings.   One gentlemen comes into the subway car thanking everyone for coming to the meeting.  He asks for people to give their testimony and then when no one does he gives his own.  Then he pleads with people again to stand up and give their testimony.  After a third plea one of us stands up and gives our testimony.  Here is a picture of me giving my testimony of coming to Christ.  Then two others stand up and give their testimony.  As you can see by the young lady here everyone is listening and surprised.    In the one location we did this others had almost been arrested for preaching the gospel a few days earlier and we had the same guards tell the complainers to sit and be quiet so that they could see all that would happen.    A little creativity can go a long way for finding a way to share the gospel.  Many people heard the gospel.

    The parks in NYC are a wonderful place to witness.  People go to the parks to interact with others.  We had many wonderful conversations.   These two had many questions and ended up talking to several Christians about Jesus.  Pray that God is changing their hearts.

    Hundreds of people heard the gospel via open air evangelism in the parks.  God drew several large crowds to hear the gospel throughout the week.  Some crowds gather because of apologetics like here.

    We gathered crowds using IQ tests and trivia as well.  Either way everyone heard a good gospel message.  What a wonderful week we had in NYC.

Why do I choose to believe the Bible?

Without first being converted, all “belief” in the Bible will inevitably turn out to be superficial when tested. However, once I was born again, as I studied the Bible more, I saw and discovered the numerous amounts of proof that made this collection of books truly axiomatic. I discovered that the Bible is not a book of fairy tales. It is not a novel with characters and a plot contrived by men to deceive the world. If we were to place the Bibles uniqueness in a creed, it would sound like this in my own words: 

 “The Bible has 66 separate books, written by 40 different authors (most of whom did not know each other), in three different languages, from three different continents over a 1,600 year time frame with zero contradictions. They are historically accurate, credible, verifiable, and archeologically reliable. The prophecies that were written therein could not be forcefully fulfilled seeing that most of what was written was written hundreds of year prior to their fulfillment, and some are still being fulfilled today. There are over 300+ explicit and implicit prophecies that point to the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ before He was born and before crucifixion was even a known punishment. The Bible is not only historically valid, but scientifically accurate as well. Also, the truthful testimony concerning the fallen, sinful, and depraved nature of man is one that is not found in any other culture in the world in the same way it is depicted by scripture. The cure for such a condition in only found in the original and unique presentation of the gospel. The Bible has not only proven itself in continuity, and internal integrity, but has stood the test of time, tyrants, and external criticism. All attempts to stop, destroy, or prevent this book to be printed, preached, and promoted have utterly failed and were very counterproductive. The Bible was written by the hands of men, but not the spirit of men. The Bible is not only a book of transcendent mysteries and spiritual paradoxes, but also imminent certainties and timeless absolutes. It is unmatched in its philosophy, marked by its wisdom, and abundant in its knowledge. No matter what you do, no matter how you feel, no matter what you may say about this collection of ancient writings, if in the end, this book were a lie (which it won’t), it is still one heck of a book! Why? Because it was inspired by one heck of a God!”

 “All Scripture [is] given by inspiration of God…” -2 Timothy 3:16 (NKJV) 

There are many reasons I can use to try and convince someone to believe the Bible, or arguments I could write as to why so-and-so should choose to do so. However, if someone does not know Jesus, the Bible will always be nothing more than just another religious book. It will have no reality, no relevance, and no real application. The Bible is a living word, because God is living. It is true in all that it’s says because God is true. But, if one is never converted from their sin, then none of that will ever be realized, ever! However, if you fail to believe what the Bible says, then you will never believe in Jesus to save you from your sin. So what do you do? Cry out to God and by asking Him to make you born again. Trust Him to save you from your sin if you understand that you are guilty before God and are deserving of Hell. He is rich in Mercy and will save those who are broken over their sin. Do it today, because in Hell, everyone believes the Bible.
