How Do We Know that the Bible Is True?

“There Is a Book . . .”

There were many defining moments in the historic debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham at the Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky. For Ken Ham, one of those defining moments came when Bill Nye twice referred to origins as a “great mystery.” Each time, Ken Ham responded by saying, “There is a book . . .” Of course that book is the Bible, God’s Word, which gives us answers to the skeptical questions of the age.

Was there a defining moment that stood out to you during the debate? If not, it’s not too late! Your defining moment could be leading an outreach or just diving in to learn more so you can be ready to defend your faith. Your defining moment might even be receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Whatever that moment is for you, we would love for you to get connected with us and share your experience.
