Persuasion the Bible Is the Word of God

I talked to someone yesterday that said he just couldn’t believe that the Bible is God’s Word. When Romans 10:17 says that faith comes by hearing the Word of God, faith is a certainty that what it says is true. Not only is it true, but it is better for you than not knowing it, believing it, or obeying it. For someone who says he does not believe the Bible, what do you say to that person? This young man said that he had a problem with it being written by men. That’s a common refrain – ‘it was only written by men.’ The idea here is then, why believe it? It isn’t written only by men. It is the Word of God. The Bible is unlike any other book and that is easy to see in numerous different ways. I told him about Isaiah 40 through 48 where three times at least God tells His audience what will happen ahead of time so that when it occurs, they will know He did it. God does that again and again. Thirty percent of the Bible is prophecy, where God says what He is going to do. Much of the Bible is also fulfillment of prophecy. All of that is to say that scripture is divine. There is a God. He wrote a book. It is a perfect book. Not only do we read these prophesies and their fulfillment and even see their fulfillment, but the events and the teaching are amazing. The consistency with history and science are astounding. It all fits together in a oneness that can’t be understood without reading through it. When someone obeys it, it brings results in life nothing else. There is also the peace and joy and strength that comes through a mere book, that isn’t a mere book. It is God’s Word.
