Little known evidence for the supernatural origin of the Bible
Truly, The Bible is the most famous book in History- feared and hated by the unbelieving - cherished and loved by those who know that they have eternal life.
It has been attacked without success, burned, banned, torn and ridiculed only to have the attackers shamed when the evidence was shown to be for this masterpiece.
One of my favorite quotes summarises this point:
"Hammer away you hostile hands- your hammers break, God's anvil stands"
"The Bible contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. It's doctrines are holy,
it's precepts are binding, it's histories are true, and it's decisions are immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practise it to be holy.
It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you.
It is the traveller's map, the pilgrims staff, the pilots compass, the soldiers sword, and the Christian's charter.
Here Paradise is restored, Heaven opened, and the gates of hell disclosed.
Christ is it's main subject, our good the design, and the glory of God it's end.
It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth,a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure.
It is given you in life, will be opened at the judgement, and be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labor, and will
condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents."
Indeed, the Bible is an indestructable book, and I shall attempt to show you with but a few examples why so many, from the simple to intellectual geniuses have concluded that this is
The Word of God.

The luckiest guesses in the universe?
See this documentary for more scientific and rational evidence.
-Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." These 10 words describe the fact which was only realised in the 20th century that space time and matter had a beginning..until then it was thought that the universe had always existed from eternity.
-Again in verses like 1Timothy 1:9 and Titus 1:2 we read that time had a beginning which was corobborated only in the 1960's and 70's by astrophysicists like Stephen Hawking.
In Job 26:10 we read:
"He has inscribed a circle on the surface of the waters At the boundary of light and darkness."
Do you realise what this is saying? what shape must one have in order for the boundries of light and dark to take on a circular shape? A sphere. -The Bible taught a spherical earth thousands of years before it was 'discovered'.
Another example is when Christopher Columbus before he set off on his mission quoted Isaiah 40:21-22 to prove that the world was round:
"Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood since the earth was founded?
He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers."
the word 'circle' here in Hebrew is 'chuwg' which literally means 'sphere'- Columbus apparently knew this- and he proved that the Bible is correct- yet many are ignorant of this and even state that the Bible teaches a 'flat earth'- another unfortunate assumption from those who would listen to those who have at the very most only given the Bible a cursory glance and with presuppositions of error.
-Ecclesiastes 1:6-7,'The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course. All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full. To the place the streams come from, there they return again'. King Solomon, writing approximately around 400BC speaks of global wind currents and the earth's water cycle.
The phrase, 'the wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course' is an accurate description of the circular flow of air around the earth, called the 'jet stream,'(also in Isaiah 40:12) This is only a recent understanding of scientists.
-Around 1800 BC in Job 38: 19 we learn that light travels as opposed to it travelling instantanously as it was supposed until the 1600's
-Stars produce sound waves (Job 38:7)
-Some stars are bound in clusters. (Job 38:31)
-The moon has no light of it's own (25:5)
-The Earth used to be originally one large landmass (Genesis 1:9; 10:25, Deuteronomy 32:8)
-Of the 2nd law of Thermodynamics (entropy) we read:
"of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garnment, as a vesture thou shalt change them, and they shall be changed. But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end." (Psalm 102: 25-27, Matthew 24:35, Romans 8:21-22)
-At a time when people thought the earth was a disk resting on the back of animals or held by giant persons or suspended by ropes and chains, the Bible taught that what was only confirmed in modern times: "He stretchth out the North over the empty plane, and hangeth the earth upon nothing."
-8th day circumcision. Only in relatively recent history have doctors 'discovered' why it is best to perform circumcision on ONLY the 8th day and not the 7th or 9th...because only on the 8th day is there a vitamin K and prothombium surge in the blood of the baby which means less pain and less bleeding and a faster healing process.
-Until relatively recently is was also commonly believed that the ocean floors were smooth- yet once again if the people had believed the Bible there would be no surprise. (eg Jonah 2:3-6)
-Another assumption was that apart from tides, people thought that oceans were are still as lakes- without current- until the 1800's when Matt Fontaine Manry 'discovered' 'rivers' in the oceans- Interestingly they were only discovered because Maury decided to take Psalm 8:8 literally:
"The fowl of the air and the fish of the sea and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas."
-Yet another fairly recent discovery was that of 'sea springs'- which were already spoken of in Job 38:16 and Proverbs 8: 28
-The Evaporation and Condensation cycle in verse 7
-The Black Plague which was destroyed in the great fire of 1666 claimed many victims unnecessarily if only they had cleaned themselves under RUNNING water- as the Israelites did as instructed in Leviticus 15:13
-The book of Job is the oldest book in the Bible (during the so called bronze age) and yet many of the 'discoveries' of science were ironically already listed in this book as you may have already noticed..another is in Job 20:24 "He shall flee from the iron weapon, [and] the bow of steel shall strike him through."
Note that he mentions weapons made of iron in the bronze age..furthermore..steel was only 'invented' in 1859!
-Throughout history skeptics used this passage to criticize the validity of the Bible :
"And they they of the people and kindreds and tongues and tongues and nations shall see thir dead bodoes three days and a half, and not suffer their dead bodoes to be put in the graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the face of the earth" (Revelation 11: 9-11) how could the whole world see two dead bodies for 3 1/2 days?- then television was invented.
-Dinosaurs described in Job 40:15-19:
"Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.
Lo now, his strength is is his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.
He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his
stones are wrapped together.
His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.
He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him
can make his sword to approach unto him."
Some people try and say this was a Hippopotimus or elephant dispite that the descriptions contrast..an elephant does not have a tail like a cedar tree.
and Job 41: 1, 19-21
"Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord [which] thou lettest down? ...Out of his mouth go burning lamps, [and] sparks of fire leap out.
Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as [out] of a seething pot or caldron.
His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth. "
This is hardly a likeness to a crocodile as some would try to convince us.
In fact there have been found dinosaur fossils with dual cavities in their skulls that have been thought to be used for mixing chemicals like the bombadier beetle of today...the basis for the "fire" breathing dragon legends- remember that the name dinosaur (terrible lizard) was only first used in recent history.
-Psalm 19:6- (speaking of the sun) "Its rising is from one end of heaven, And its circuit to the other end; And there is nothing hidden from its heat." until relatively recently this was used against the Bible by critics because obviously the sun does not go around the earth..until it was found out that this passage speaks of the sun going in rotation around the milky way galaxy!
-Psalm 139:16 "thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect (Hebrew Golem, an embryo or fetus) And in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, WHEN AS YET THERE WAS NONE OF THEM."
This shows that David, thanks to the wisdom God gave him, knew that a fetus starts out as a ball of cells, without recogniseable limbs, and that they do not develop until later.
-The Bible specifies the perfect dimensions for a stable water vessel (Genesis 6:15). Modern ship builders are well aware that the ideal dimension for ship stability is a length six times that of the width. Keep in mind, God told Noah the ideal dimensions for the ark 4,500 years ago.
-Sanitation industry birthed (Deuteronomy 23:12-13). Some 3,500 years ago God commanded His people to have a place outside the camp where they could relieve themselves. They were to each carry a shovel so that they could dig a hole (latrine) and cover their waste. Up until World War I, more soldiers died from disease than war because they did not isolate human waste.
-The Bible states that God created life according to kinds (Genesis 1:24). The fact that God distinguishes kinds, agrees with what scientists observe – namely that there are horizontal genetic boundaries beyond which life cannot vary. Life produces after its own kind. Dogs produce dogs, cats produce cats, roses produce roses. Never have we witnessed one kind changing into another kind as evolution supposes. There are truly natural limits to biological change.
-Chicken or egg dilemma solved (Genesis 1:20-22). Which came first, the chicken or the egg? This question has plagued philosophers for centuries. The Bible states that God created birds with the ability to reproduce after their kind. Therefore the chicken was created first with the ability to make eggs! Yet, evolution has no solution for this dilemma.
-Which came first, proteins or DNA (Revelation 4:11)? For evolutionists, the chicken or egg dilemma goes even deeper. Chickens consist of proteins. The code for each protein is contained in the DNA/RNA system. However, proteins are required in order to manufacture DNA. So which came first: proteins or DNA? The ONLY explanation is that they were created together.
-Our bodies are made from the dust of the ground (Genesis 2:7; 3:19). Scientists have confirmed that the human body is comprised of some 28 base and trace elements – all of which are found in the earth.
-The First Law of Thermodynamics established (Genesis 2:1-2). The First Law states that the total quantity of energy and matter in the universe is a constant. One form of energy or matter may be converted into another, but the total quantity always remains the same. Therefore the creation is finished, exactly as God said way back in Genesis.
-The first three verses of Genesis accurately express all known aspects of the creation (Genesis 1:1-3). Science expresses the universe in terms of: time, space, matter, and energy. In Genesis chapter one we read: “In the beginning (time) God created the heavens (space) and the earth (matter)…Then God said, “Let there be light (energy).” No other creation account agrees with the observable evidence.
-The universe had a beginning (Genesis 1:1; Hebrews 1:10-12). Starting with the studies of Albert Einstein in the early 1900s and continuing today, science has confirmed the biblical view that the universe had a beginning. When the Bible was written most people believed (ie the scientists of the day) the universe was eternal. Science has proven them wrong, but the Bible correct...again.
-Light can be divided (Job 38:24). Sir Isaac Newton (who took the Bible seriously) studied light and discovered that white light is made of seven colors, which can be “parted” and then recombined. Science confirmed this four centuries ago – God declared this four millennia ago!
-Sexual promiscuity is dangerous to your health (1 Corinthians 6:18; Romans 1:27). The Bible warns that “he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body,” and that those who commit homosexual sin would “receive in themselves” the penalty of their error. Much data now confirms that any sexual relationship outside of holy matrimony is unsafe.
-Reproduction explained (Genesis 1:27-28; 2:24; Mark 10:6-8). While evolution has no mechanism to explain how male and female reproductive organs evolved at the same time, the Bible says that from the beginning God made them male and female in order to propagate the human race and animal kinds.
-Vast fossil deposits anticipated (Genesis 7). When plants and animals die they decompose rapidly. Yet billions of life forms around the globe have been preserved as fossils. Geologists now know that fossils only form if there is rapid deposition of life buried away from scavengers and bacteria. This agrees exactly with what the Bible says occurred during the global Flood.
-The continents were created as one large land mass (Genesis 1:9-10). Many geologists agree there is strong evidence that the earth was originally one super continent – just as the Bible said way back in Genesis.
-Continental drift inferred (Genesis 7:11). Today the study of the ocean floor indicates that the landmasses have been ripped apart. Scripture states that during the global Flood the “fountains of the great deep were broken up.” This cataclysmic event apparently resulted in the continental plates breaking and shifting.
-Ice Age inferred (Job 38:29-30). Prior to the global Flood the earth was apparently subtropical. However shortly after the Flood, the Bible mentions ice often – “By the breath of God ice is given, and the broad waters are frozen” (Job 37:10). Evidently the Ice Age occurred in the centuries following the Flood.
-Life begins at fertilization (Jeremiah 1:5). God declares that He knew us before we were born. The biblical penalty for murdering an unborn child was death (Exodus 21:22-23). Today, it is an irrefutable biological fact that the fertilized egg is truly an entire human being. Nothing will be added to the first cell except nutrition and oxygen.
-God fashions and knits us together in the womb (Job 10:8-12; 31:15). Science was ignorant concerning embryonic development until recently. Yet many centuries ago, the Bible accurately described God making us an “intricate unity” in the womb.
-God has created all mankind from one blood (Acts 17:26; Genesis 5). Today researchers have discovered that we have all descended from one gene pool. For example, a 1995 study of a section of Y chromosomes from 38 men from different ethnic groups around the world was consistent with the biblical teaching that we all come from one man (Adam)
-Origin of the major language groups explained (Genesis 11). After the rebellion at Babel, God scattered the people by confounding the one language into many languages. Evolution teaches that we all evolved from a common ancestor, yet offers no mechanism to explain the origin of the thousands of diverse languages in existence today.
-Origin of the different “races” explained (Genesis 11). As Noah’s descendants migrated around the world after Babel, each language group developed distinct features based on environment and genetic variation. Those with a genetic makeup suitable to their new environment survived to reproduce. Over time, certain traits (such as dark skin color for those closer to the equator) dominated. Genesis alone offers a reasonable answer to the origin of the races and languages.
-Healthy dietary laws (Leviticus 11:9-12). Scripture states that we should avoid those sea creatures which do not have fins or scales. We now know that bottom-feeders (those with no scales or fins) tend to consume waste and are likely to carry disease.
-The Bible warns against eating birds of prey (Leviticus 11:13-19). Scientists only in recent history recognize that those birds which eat carrion (putrefying flesh), often spread disease.
-Avoid swine (Deuteronomy 14:8). Not so long ago, science learned that eating undercooked pork causes an infection of parasites called trichinosis. Now consider this: the Bible forbid the eating of swine more than 3,000 years before we learned how to cook pork safely.
-Radical environmentalism foreseen (Romans 1:25). Two thousand years ago, God’s Word stated that many would worship and serve creation rather than the Creator. Today, nature is revered as “Mother” and naturalism is enshrined and the extermination of humanity over plants and animals is espoused.
-The Second Law of Thermodynamics (Entropy) explained (Psalm 102:25-26). This law states that everything in the universe is running down, deteriorating, constantly becoming less and less orderly. Entropy (disorder) entered when mankind rebelled against God – resulting in the curse (Genesis 3:17; Romans 8:20-22). Historically most people believed the universe was unchangeable. Yet modern science verifies that the universe is wearing out “grow(ing) old like a garment” (Hebrews 1:11). Darwinian macroevolution directly contradicts this scientific law.
-Incest laws established (Leviticus 18:6). To marry near of kin in the ancient world was common. Yet, beginning about 1500 B.C., God forbid this practice. The reason is simple – the genetic mutations (resulting from the curse) had a cumulative effect. Though Cain could safely marry his sister because the genetic pool was still relatively pure at that time, by Moses’ day the genetic errors had swelled. Today, geneticists confirm that the risk of passing on a genetic abnormality to your child is much greater if you marry a close relative because relatives are more likely to carry the same defective gene. If they procreate, their offspring are more apt to have this defect expressed.
-Genetic mixing of different seeds forbidden (Leviticus 19:19; Deuteronomy 22:9). The Bible warns against mixing seeds – as this will result in an inferior or dangerous crop. There is now growing evidence that unnatural, genetically engineered crops may be harmful.
-The earth was designed for biological life (Isaiah 45:18). Scientists have discovered that the most fundamental characteristics of our earth and cosmos are so finely tuned that if just one of them were even slightly different, life as we know it couldn’t exist. This is called the Anthropic Principle and it agrees with the Bible which states that God formed the earth to be inhabited.
-Law of Biogenesis explained (Genesis 1). Scientists observe that life only comes from existing life. This law has never been violated under observation or experimentation (as evolution postulates ie abiogenesis). Therefore life, God’s life, created all life.
-Air has weight (Job 28:25). It was once thought that air was weightless. Yet 4,000 years ago Job declared that God established “a weight for the wind.” In recent years, meteorologists have calculated that the average thunderstorm holds thousands of tons of rain. To carry this load, air must have mass.
-Jet stream anticipated (Ecclesiastes 1:6). At a time when it was thought that winds blew straight, the Bible declares “The wind goes toward the south, and turns around to the north; The wind whirls about continually, and comes again on its circuit.” King Solomon wrote this 3,000 years ago. Now consider this: it was not until World War II that airmen discovered the jet stream circuit.
-Medical quarantine instituted (Leviticus 13:45-46; Numbers 5:1-4). Long before man understood the principles of quarantine, God commanded the Israelites to isolate those with a contagious disease until cured.
-Laughter promotes physical healing (Proverbs 17:22). Recent studies confirm what King Solomon was inspired to write 3,000 years ago, “A merry heart does good, like medicine.” For instance, laughter reduces levels of certain stress hormones. This brings balance to the immune system, which helps your body fight off disease.
-Intense sorrow or stress is harmful to your health (Proverbs 18:14; Mark 14:34). Researchers have studied individuals with no prior medical problems who showed symptoms of stress cardiomyopathy including chest pain, difficulty breathing, low blood pressure, and even heart failure – following a stressful incident.
-The Bible cautions against consuming fat (Leviticus 7:23). Only in recent decades has the medical community determined that fat clogs arteries and contributes to heart disease.
-Do not consume blood (Leviticus 17:12). A common ritual in many religions in the ancient world was to drink blood. However, the Creator repeatedly told His people to abstain from blood (Genesis 9:4; Leviticus 3:17; Acts 15:20; 21:25). Of course, modern science reveals that consuming raw blood is dangerous.
-Life is more than matter and energy (Genesis 2:7; Job 12:7-10). We know that if a creature is denied air it dies. Even though its body may be perfectly intact, and air and energy are reintroduced to spark life, the body remains dead. Scripture agrees with the observable evidence when it states that only God can give the breath of life. Life cannot be explained by raw materials, time, and chance alone – as evolutionists would lead us to believe.
-Origin of music explained (Psalm 40:3). Evolution cannot explain the origin of music. (and indeed even regards it as 'purposeless') The Bible says that every good gift comes from God (James 1:17). This includes joyful melodies. God has given both man and angels the gift of music-making (Genesis 4:21; Ezekiel 28:13). Singing is intended to express rejoicing in and worship of the Lord (Job 38:7; Psalm 95:1-2).
-Our ancestors were not primitive (Genesis 4:20-22; Job 8:8-10; 12:12). Archeologists have discovered that our ancestors mined, had metallurgical factories, created air-conditioned buildings, designed musical instruments, studied the stars, and much more. This evidence directly contradicts the theory of evolution, but agrees completely with God’s Word.
-Cavemen described in the Bible (Job 30:1-8). Four thousand years ago, Job describes certain “vile men” who were driven from society to forage “among the bushes” for survival and who “live in the clefts of the valleys, (and) in caves of the earth and the rocks.” Therefore “cavemen” were simply outcasts and vagabounds – not our primitive ancestors as evolutionists speculate.
-The seed of a plant contains its life (Genesis 1:11; 29). As stated in the Book of Genesis, we now recognize that inside the "humble" seed is life itself. Within the seed is a tiny factory of amazing complexity. No scientist can build a synthetic seed and no seed is simple!
-God created “lights” in the heavens “for signs and seasons, and for days and years” (Genesis 1:14-16). We now know that a year is the time required for the earth to travel once around the sun. The seasons are caused by the changing position of the earth in relation to the sun. The moon’s phases follow one another in clock-like precision – constituting the lunar calendar. Evolution teaches that the cosmos evolved by random chance, yet the Bible agrees with the observable, testable evidence.
-Olive oil and wine useful on wounds (Luke 10:34). Jesus told of a Samaritan man, who when he came upon a wounded traveler, he bandaged him – pouring upon his wounds olive oil and wine. Today we know that wine contains ethyl alcohol and traces of methyl alcohol. Both are good disinfectants. Olive oil is also a good disinfectant, as well as a skin moisturizer, protector, and soothing lotion. This is common knowledge to us today. However, did you know that during the Middle Ages and right up till the early 20th century, millions died because they did not know to treat and protect open wounds?
-Man is “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). We are only beginning to probe the complexity of the DNA molecule, the eye, the brain, and all the intricate components of life. No human invention compares to the marvelous wonders of God’s creation.
-Strong and weak nuclear force explained (Colossians 1:17; Hebrews 1:3). Physicists do not understand what binds the atom’s nucleus together. Yet, the Bible states that “all things consist” – or are held together by the Creator – Jesus Christ
-Safe drinking water (Leviticus 11:33-36). God forbade drinking from vessels or stagnant water that had been contaminated by coming into contact with a dead animal. It is only in the last 100 years that medical science has learned that contaminated water can cause typhoid and cholera.
-Pest control (Leviticus 25:1-24). Farmers are plagued today with insects. Yet God gave a sure-fire remedy to control pests centuries ago. Moses commanded Israel to set aside one year in seven when no crops were raised. Insects winter in the stalks of last year’s harvest, hatch in the spring, and are perpetuated by laying eggs in the new crop. If the crop is denied one year in seven, the pests have nothing to subsist upon, and are thereby controlled.
-Soil conservation (Leviticus 23:22). Not only was the land to lay fallow every seventh year, but God also instructed farmers to leave the gleanings when reaping their fields, and not to reap the corners (sides) of their fields. This served several purposes: 1) Vital soil minerals would be maintained. 2) The hedge row would limit wind erosion. 3) The poor could eat the gleanings. Today, approximately four billion metric tons of soil are lost from U.S. crop lands each year. Much of this soil depletion could be avoided if God’s commands were followed.
-Animal instincts understood (Job 39; Proverbs 30:24-28; Jeremiah 8:7). A newly hatched spider weaves an intricate web without being taught. A recently emerged butterfly somehow knows to navigate a 2,500-mile migration route without a guide. God explains that He has endowed each creature with specific knowledge. Scripture, not evolution, explains animal instincts.
-Animals do not have a conscience (Psalm 32:9). A parrot can be taught to swear and blaspheme, yet never feel conviction. Many animals steal, but they do not experience guilt. If man evolved from animals, where did our conscience come from? The Bible explains that man alone was created as a moral being in God’s image.
-Pseudo-science anticipated (1 Timothy 6:20). The theory of evolution contradicts the observable evidence. The Bible warned us in advance that there would be those who would profess: “profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge (science).” True science agrees with the Creator’s Word and the Creator's Word agrees with science.
-Death explained (Romans 6:23). All eventually die. The Bible alone explains why we die – “The soul who sins shall die” (Ezekiel 18:20). Sin is transgression of God’s Law. To see if you will die, please review God’s Ten Commandments (Exodus 20). Have you ever lied? (White lies and fibs count.) Ever stolen? (Cheating on a test or taxes is stealing.) Jesus said that “whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:28). Have you ever looked with lust? Then you’re an adulterer at heart. Have you ever hated someone or called someone a fool? If so, the Bible says you are guilty of murder (Matthew 5:21-22; 1 John 3:15). Have you ever used your Creator’s name (Lord, God, Jesus, or Christ) in vain? This is called blasphemy – and God hates it. If you have broken these commandments at any time, then by your own admission, you are a blasphemer, a murderer, an adulterer, a thief, and a liar at heart. And we have only looked at five of the Ten Commandments. This is why we die.
-Justice understood (Acts 17:30-31). Our God-given conscience reveals that all sin will be judged. Down deep we know that He who created the eyes sees every secret sin (Romans 2:16). He who formed our mind remembers our past offense as if it just occurred. God has declared that the penalty for sin is death. Physical death comes first, then the second death – which is eternal separation from God in the lake of fire (Revelation 21:8). God cannot lie. Every sin will be judged. His justice demands it. But God is also rich in mercy to all who call upon His name. He has made a way for justice to be served and mercy to be shown.
-Eternal life revealed (John 3:16). Scientists search in vain for the cure for aging and death. Yet, the good news is that God, who is the source of all life, has made a way to freely forgive us so that we may live forever with Him in heaven. “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). God desires a loving, eternal relationship with each person – free from sin, fear, and pain. Therefore, He sent His Son to die as our substitute on the cross. “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”(Romans 6:23). Jesus never sinned, therefore He alone qualified to pay the penalty for our sins on the cross. He died in our place. He then rose from the grave defeating death. All who turn from their sins and trust Him will be saved. To repent and place your trust in Jesus Christ, make Psalm 51 your prayer. Then read your Bible daily, obeying what you read. God will never let you down.
-The solution to suffering (Revelation 21). Neither evolution nor religion offers a solution to suffering. But God offers heaven as a gift to all who trust in His Son. In heaven, “God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:4).
The Bible is inspired by the Creator. Therefore it is no surprise that life’s ultimate questions are answered within its pages. The Bible reveals the purpose of our existence. Scripture alone explains where our conscience came from. And no other source explains the root cause of death. Seeing that all die, wouldn’t it be wise to search for the remedy in the only book that proves it was inspired by God? The Bible offers the only remedy for sin, suffering, and death. God’s Word presents the only perfect, sinless Savior – one who died for our sins and rose from the dead. Jesus is the Creator (John 1; Colossians 1). He said “I and My Father are one” (John 10:30). He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). And He promises His followers: “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish” (John 10:28). Your eternal destiny will be determined by your choice. There is only one provision for sin. Jesus died in your place. Only by faith in Christ’s finished work will you be saved. This is God’s free gift offered to all. Please do not let pride, religion, opinions, or love for sin separate you from God. No sin is worth an eternity in hell. Please heed Jesus’ words – “Repent, and believe in the gospel” (Mark 1:15). If you do, you will live in heaven with our awesome Creator forever!
It isn't just that the Bible proves itself with it's accuracy in science and medicine- but also that it contains NONE of the errors that were commonly held at the time and even up to modern times.
It is a fact that none of the religions and no other 'holy' book is able to make the claim of 100% accuracy.
Are these just lucky guesses? or are you now convinced that there is an vastly superior mind behind the Bible- just as Christians have said all along.
Also, what are people today saying that we shouldn't take the Bible too literally on? 6 day creation?- 6,000 year history? ..how long until science (or rather, certain biased scientists) 'discovers' that the Bible was correct in these areas too?
Bible "Contradictions" refuted
More evidence of supernatural design:
As one reads through the Bible, there are many parts they would automatically skip over because they do not seem relevant or all that interesting..one example would be the genealogies..yet there is something truly amazing in the very first genealogy (if there are any more- I would truly like to know) in Genesis 5:
It is basically a list of ten names- from Adam to Noah..but what we read is a transliteration from the original Hebrew..but what do they read in English?
Adams name means 'man'- Him being the first man makes that straightforward.
Adams son was named Seth which means "appointed" - as Eve said "For God hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew"
Seths son was named Enosh which means "mortal" "Frail" or "miserable"- it is from the root word 'anash' which means 'uncurable'
Enoshes son was called Kenan which can mean "sorrow"
Kenans som was Mahalalel which means
Mahalalels son was named Jared from the verb 'yaradh' meaning "descent" or "shall come down"
Jareds son was Enoch which means "teaching"
Enochs son was Methuselah whose name comes from the root 'muth'- "death" and'shalach'-"to bring"
Methuselahs was the father of Lamech whose name is still rooted in our english word "lament" - and it suggests despairing.
And Lamech is the father of Noah- which means "rest" or comfort" as it is derived from the word 'nacham'- 'to bring relief'
Now if we read those names again after that transliteration:
"Man [is] appointed mortal sorrow; [but] the blessed God shall come down teaching [that] his death shall bring [the] despairing rest."
This is the summary of Gods plan- the gospel- hidden in a geneology in Genesis...an astronomical co-incidence? or further evidence that there is the God.
How The Bible Texts Came To Be.
"Ever since God created the world, His invisible qualities, both His external power and His divine nature have been clearly seen; they are perceived in the things that God made. So these people have no excuse at all!" (Romans 1: 18-20)
