"The Bible Will Always Survive!"
“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my Words will never pass away.” Matthew 24: 35 NIV
It may be hard to believe this but the Bible has been despised, derided, denied, disputed, dissected and debated for as long as it has existed. Some people don’t like it, or what it represents.
Yet is it still the most published, translated, and read book in the world. More importantly, it’s still changing the lives of those who apply what it teaches. That’s one of the reasons I believe the Bible is God’s Word. It has survived so many attacks throughout history.
It is the inspiration for more music, art and architecture than any other item. If you were to take the Bible out of our culture, you would destroy most of the major music, artwork and architecture of the last 2,000 years. It has flourished despite the unrelenting attacks.
If you start looking around you’ll notice that there are a lot of things that used to be and aren’t anymore. The Bible is still with us. Those who spoke out against it and sought to have it destroyed are long gone. It remains.
No matter what attacks come the Bible’s way, it always survives and it always will. The reason for that is quite simple: it’s God’s book! He says it will remain.
Peace in the Lord,
