Letter about the Bible

I felt the article written by Mr. Panko (March 8, Fillmore County Journal) demanded a response (especially when he would seem to boldly compare those believing in an absolute truth with sects, cults, and terrorists).

We would all agree that people should base their convictions on fact, not solely upon popular opinion or personal feelings. So I thought it my be helpful to readers and to Mr. Panko to give a couple of facts about the Bible.

First, the Bible has been proven authentic. It was written over the course of more than one thousand years, containing 66 books by 40 different authors, yet all passing Canon 1 and 2 standards: Apostolicity, Integrity of Content, Universality and Evidence of Divine Inspiration. The Greek translation for "Word" in The Word of God literally means "God Breathed". The Old Testament claims 3,800 times that the Bible is the spoken word of God and the New Testament concurs. And it's message is still relevant today.

Second, the Bible is prophetic. It contains 3,856 verses concerning prophecy, and about 1/6 deal with future events. In the brief life of Jesus alone we see over 300 fulfilled prophecies!

But the greatest proof of the Bible is the difference its message can make in a person's life. The Bible is not an end in itself: it is the means to the end, which is knowing God and Jesus Christ.
