Is the Bible Gods Word

If someone asked you to defend your belief in the Bible, what would you say? Could you give them a sound, reasonable answer? This chapter is just that. It is full of indisputable evidence that demands only one conclusion—the Bible is indeed God’s word. Therefore, it is the sole authority for all of life!

Paul says to his protégé Timothy, and to us today, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Having said that, there would be some who would say, “But the text in 2 Timothy proves nothing. It is the Bible saying that it is inspired. Just because a person claims to be the President of the United States doesn’t make him the president. He may or may not be. What other evidence can be offered that the Bible is truly God’s word?”

Conversion is always a work of the Holy Spirit granting revelation to the darkened mind of a sinner. The Holy Spirit’s revelation is always truth accompanied with supernatural power that opens the cognitive awareness of an unbeliever.
