Chapter 28 - Is the Bible True?
Because the word of God is so important to a Christian, it is the object of persistent attack by Satan. He has woven a massive assault using evolution, scholastic textual and so-called 'higher' criticism, and even social criticism for failing to match current trends in popular thought (that he is directing). Some Christians get sucked into pointless arguments attempting to prove the bible is true. While it can be helpful for those weaker Christians to have someone defend the bible and rebut the facetious arguments of those who attack it, we should remember that these arguments are put forth not to find truth, but to obscure it. If one has placed one’s trust in Jesus, no further 'proof' is needed.
For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. - 2 Timothy 1:12
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: - 2 Timothy 3:16
Christians are called the 'bride' of Christ.
For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. - 2 Corinthians 11:2
One can imagine the character of someone who would whisper suspicions and doubts about a husbands fidelity to a wife in order to weaken or even destroy a marriage, this gives a picture of what Satan attempts with his machinations.
Jesus is called both 'the word of God' and a 'solid rock'. That these two are combined in the person of Jesus gives a solidity to our faith that should withstand the accusations of Satan.
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. - Revelation 19:11-13
To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. - 1 Peter 2:4-8
We can draw comfort and strength knowing that Jesus is the living 'stone' and word of God. As we are joined with him and Christ begins to be formed in us, we also become living stones.
We come to understand that the bible is not only true, but it is truth and from it we can gain insight to the character of God and by it are sanctified (separated) from the corruption in the world.
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. - John 17:17
