What is truth? Many people today decide what’s “true” based on what they want to be true. Truth is changing and fluid. In the past, what used to be “true” about marriage is that it’s between a man and a woman. But today, the “truth” about marriage has changed.
The problem with this system is that nothing is absolute. Don’t like the current “truth”? Just change it! Re-define what’s true until it fits your desires. Keeping track of what’s true at any given time can be exhausting. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
The Bible is God’s absolute truth to us. It defines what’s right and wrong. It defines the “safe” boundaries in which we can live and play. It’s the absolute truth about His love for us and how He has saved us through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
But the Devil doesn’t want you trust it. In fact, that’s how all sin started: Satan called God’s Word into question:
Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” Genesis 3:1
Satan tricked Eve into disobeying God by questioning the truth of God’s Word. And He still uses this tactic today. He constantly asks, “Did God actually say…?” So how do we know if we can trust the Bible? Did God actually say…?
Today we explore some of the evidence—both from the Bible itself and from external sources—that illustrate why we can trust it. You’ll find it’s more than just “blind faith” in the writings of a collection of authors, but rather a unified message of hope, love and forgiveness for all people.
