The word canon is now used to refer to the complete list of the Bible’s God-inspired books. Although the original documents have been lost, we can be sure that the original words have been preserved in the copies we possess today.
Although we have faith that the Bible really is the Word of God, it is not a “blind” faith or a mere assumption. It is something we can know for certain.
We worship the God who inspired the Bible. So the Christian is in love with the Word of God. All God’s people are summoned to love this Word of God more and more, until they meet him whom they have met in its pages throughout their lives.
The Christian faith is both reasonable and justified. The very language of the Hebrew Old Testament reveals that our faith is intrinsically linked to truth. It is founded firstly and primarily upon God’s consistent and reliable Word.
Clear biblical teaching—accepted by nearly everyone until very recently—has been declared “incompatible with human dignity” by a British court.
Scripture is so hard to understand. How can anyone be sure they understand it correctly?
The concept of “blind faith” is a recent invention, found nowhere in Scripture.
Without the original texts of the Bible in our hands, how can we be sure our surviving copies don’t contain lots of mistakes?
What makes the Creation Museum, Ark Encounter, and the message of AiG so powerful? And why are these two outreaches so inspiring to Christians and infuriating to atheists? Two words: biblical authority. You see, the core message of AiG is that all of God’s Word is true, from Genesis to Revelation!
I believe the Lord has raised up organizations like AiG to call the church back to the authority of the Word of God—calling for a new reformation.
This quick survey can be used to present to a pastor at a church or a Christian college to see if the institution really believes what the Scriptures say.
The devil has been able to convince generations of people that the written Word cannot be trusted—particularly beginning with the book of Genesis.
The chapter “Science and Scripture” in The Enduring Authority of Christian Scriptures, edited by D. A. Carson, undermines the very purpose of the book.
The Creator’s visuals convey a valuable message we all need to hear. But to learn the lessons that matter most, nothing beats His words!
Most of us do not live the same way as the ancient Israelites. So, when we read Genesis, can we understand what was meant for the original audience?
The Bible is our final authority in more areas than our beliefs.
If you can’t trust the Bible when it talks about geology, biology, and astronomy, then how can you trust the Bible when it talks about salvation?
The Bible is inerrant, yet some have tried to state that the Bible erroneously records 20 commandments.
The human authors of Scripture always wrote precisely what God intended.
The Bible is unlike any other religious book. Despite 40 authors writing from three continents over nearly two thousand years, it maintains perfect consistency.
People need to understand that the Bible is not just the word of men—but that it is, in truth the Word of the living God.
One of the most amazing testimonies to Scripture’s truth is its preservation over thousands of years despite sometimes intense efforts to destroy it.
An Israeli team of computer scientists has developed software to analyze literary authorship and applied their technique to the Bible. By analyzing literary styles and word choices, they tried to scientifically assess the authorship of portions of the Old Testament.
Not just the Bible’s authors but Jesus Christ Himself claimed that the Bible was God’s Word.
Although the original documents have been lost, we can be sure that the original words have been preserved in the copies we possess today.
