Summary: Dispelling the myths about the Bible, and its origins
The Bible Is The Word of God
Over the centuries Christians have been screaming just give us a reason to prove that the Bible is wrong. Give a reason to prove that it’s not the inspired word of God. Give us a reason to believe that its contradictions an errors and inaccuracies’. Give us a reason proof it archeology, prove that the Bible is wrong scientifically. Prove that the Bible is wrong historically. Just give us a reason.
You know over thousands of years countless men and women have made it their mission to destroy the Bible and its credibility. The world has been gunning for the Bible for thousands of years, trying to disprove and discredit it. That it’s not the word of God. Men and women have made every breath of their life dedicated to destroying the credibility of the Bible. One of the greatest stories of this is the famous writer Voltaire in the 1700’s who claimed “in 100 years” Voltaire said “the Bible will be forgotten and I will make sure of it.” Well guess what happened… 100 years later Voltaire was long since dead when the Geneva Bible Society actually purchased his house to print Bible’s out of it. Voltaire was wrong. In 100 years the Bible was not going to be forgotten. Countless men and women have made it their life mission and focused every single breath on discrediting the word of God, Yet the Bible stands true.
You know one of the most common things I hear time after time is this whole business of translation error and I can understand this misconception. People will come to me and they will say “Kyle how can the Bible be accurate when it’s been translated from language to language to language to language to language to language and eventually to English. I mean there is no way that can be true” And I have to admit that would be a major problem. You know it’s like the telephone game. You say one thing pass it on pass it on pass it on by the end it’s not at all what you said. However it is a misconception because we have over 6000 copies of the New Testament, for example that all say the same thing. The Bible that we have today is not a translation that is worked from language to language to language to language to language to language to English. It’s actually a one-step translation straight from the Greek manuscripts that we have into English. So you don’t have that problem you don’t have that discrepancy. One version might say Jesus Christ and another copy might say Jesus. You have very minor grammatical inconsistencies over the 6000 copies. But they all say the same thing and they are a direct translation to English.
One of the reasons I firmly believe the Bible is in fact the word of God is because archeology supports it. Year after year archeological digs are unearthed that consistently prove the Bibles accuracy there is not one archeology finding that has ever flown of the face of the Bible. I mean how is that possible?
