The foundation for Christian Truth is the Bible.  The Bible is more than a book of history.  It provides wisdom and instruction for living our daily lives.  It guides us with confidence into the future.

The Bible’s acceptance as Truth is greatly influenced by one’s world view.  A worldview that excludes God can blind one to the obvious.  One can be easily deceived by ideas like parallel universes, aliens, and misinterpretations of scripture.  A worldview that includes God provides real answers to tough questions.  The  real problem is not science.  Science is often a smokescreen behind which those who choose not to believe in God or the Bible stand.

The Bible represents a lifelong search for truth that ends in eternity.

What’s at Stake?

Trust in the Bible is essential to Christianity.  Without a clear biblical understanding of the foundation underpinning our faith, it may be difficult accepting, defending and sharing God’s Word.

What Makes the Bible so Trustworthy?

  • The Bible is the most widely distributed book in the world.  It was written by more than 40 diverse authors from three continents, in three different languages for more than 1500 years.  The Bible is remarkable in the consistency of its content, the accuracy of its prophecy, and the timelessness of its message.
  • No other book in history has been subjected to the study and scrutiny that the Bible has endured.  Many who set out to destroy the Bible became Christians.
  • The historical accuracy of biblical archaeology has long been established.
  • Contrary to popular belief, the Genesis account is supported by observable evidence throughout all fields of science.
  • Jewish translators were meticulous in their biblical translation.  Discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls between 1947-1956 confirmed the Bible’s accuracy over time, as do other ancient texts.
  • The Bible reveals revelations in the fields of astronomy, medicine, biology, anatomy and physics that were not discovered by scientists until centuries later.  For instance, before telescopes — when only a few thousand stars were visible in the night sky — the Bible compared the stars to grains of sand, Jeremiah 33:22.  The Bible claimed each star was unique, Corinthians 15:41.  Today that seemingly ridiculous claim is a  scientific fact.  Without divine inspiration, Paul could not have known what today’s starlight spectra confirms.

  • One after another, biblical prophecies have been or are being fulfilled.  The Old Testament predicted many events in history that were fulfilled in the New Testament.
  • The book of Genesis explains how our earth, universe, and life came into existence.  The Bible reveals: a) God exists,  b) What He is like, and c) What His will is for our lives.
  • Observable science is not in conflict with the Bible.  The fathers of scientific discovery agree:  Newton, Pascal, Lister, Herschel, Simpson, Bacon, Morse, Compton, Da Vinci, Durham and others.  Further, contrary to popular belief, many renowned scientists living today agree as well.


The Bible is as relevant today as when it was written provided one makes the effort to understand the context.  Study Bibles are great for that purpose, as are Bible studies within the framework of a Bible believing church.

The Bible represents a lifelong search for truth that ends in eternity.
