"Trust the Bible. Jesus Did!"
“For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, willby any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.”
Matthew 5: 18 NIV
You may have heard someone say, “I trust Jesus, but I’m not sure about the people who wrote the Bible.” There’s a problem with that. Jesus trusted them. If you trust Jesus you ought to trust them.
When Jesus talked about the Bible with people, He would often base His argument about the truth of the Bible in a single sentence or even a single word. He believed each and every word. So if I trust Jesus why wouldn’t I trust the Bible?
He saw the Bible as a book that changes lives. People were changed by the touch of it; people were changed by reading about those people who were changed. He believed each of those events and knew that they had happened.
Some of the stories that people argue about now, Noah, Adam and Eve, Sodom and Gomorrah, especially Jonah, were used as illustrations by Jesus when He talked with people. He wouldn’t use an illustration that wasn’t true.
So if He believed it and I believe in Him, I ought to believe it also.
Peace in the Lord,
