Should Trust in God, Jesus and the Bible
in God and His Word can be difficult. Believing in the Bible and God’s
dependability requires faith with at least some measure of backing. God’s existence,
the Bible’s accuracy, and Jesus’ credibility are all interconnected. If one element
proves to be wrong, then everything about the truth of Christianity is capable being
brought down. Thankfully, all three have been solid in consistency. No matter how
difficult there is a certain safety in depending on God and His Word.
existence is capable of being proven by the actuality of the universe itself
and the certainty of the Scriptures in God creating it. Undeniably, the
universe has an origin. Some believe in an evolutional stand point while others
believe in the Biblical point of view. Even with the vastly different
ideologies, there is the common ground of established laws of science that
dictates that both sides agree on. Life can only be derived from a living
thing. Evolution does not provide a
living origin whereas the Bible gives clear examples of a Creator. “The living
God, who made heaven and earth and sea and everything in them” (Acts 14:15) (NIV Standard
Full Color Bible).
God made it so that living things could only
credibility of the Scriptures is often up for debate, but key evidences are
prominent throughout history. Many of the history that is mentioned within the
Bible has been proven to be accurate. For example, the Hittite nation was
considered nonexistent until an investigation in 1906 was conducted that led to
a man named Hugo Winckler excavating Hattusa, which was the Hittite capital.
With forty different authors and sixty-six books that all correlate, the Bible
proves itself ability to remain precise. Even the Dead Sea Scrolls are capable
of connecting with the recognized canon books of the Bible. “The scrolls
discovered at Qumran are dated about 100 B.C. and turned out to be
nearly identical to the writings of the Old Testament that we have today” (Pinto). The Bible has
proven through careful examination and study that it is accurate and correct.
Demonstrating evidence of Jesus
being the Son of God ties back into the accuracy of the Scriptures. The Bible
mentions the coming of Jesus Christ and His resurrection. Psalm 16:10 “Because
you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay”
(NIV Standard Full Color Bible). Jesus also proved
His sovereignty through the various miracles He performed in the New Testament.
Raising Lazarus from the dead, feeding the 5,000, and healing the sick were
only a few of the many miracles that Jesus accomplished in His lifetime. “That
evidence includes fulfilled prophecy and recorded miracles in which Jesus reversed
the laws of nature” (Peace With God). As long as the
Bible is proven to be a reliable source of information, Jesus being the Son of
God can be completely believable.
of God, the integrity of Jesus, and the correctness of the Bible are often difficult
to trust or prove. Through faith, which has at least some backing, people can hold
true to the evidences provided to them by God. Humans have been granted with some
semblance of hope that their faith is not just blind and ignorant.
