Bible Lessons

 

In the past 150 years, intellectual men in their quest to understand life and it's origin have a desire to adopt theories which logically parallel what they observe in life. What is observed is filtered through their sense of rational reasoning. If they only believe in what can be seen and touched or what can be physically observed under microscopic analysis or by other types of observation, then they are not open to spiritual matters because spiritual things cannot be physically observed or sensed. Darwin's Origin of the Species was widely accepted because it gave world intellectuals an alternative idea to the Bible's account of the beginning of creation. Eventually the theory of evolution of the species became the tangible standard for understanding the origin of life because it rationally appealed to their senses. Still today the intellectual secularists steadfastly cling to the idea of evolution and strive to gather evidence which can be used to support Darwin's theory. After man's great efforts and expense to disprove the theory of creation, evolution remains just a theory, but is accepted by educators as fact.

Why? Is there an underlying motive for taking a theory and accepting evolution as fact? Does the unspiritual natural man desire to be only accountable to himself for the life he chooses to live? Otherwise, if he believes in life's creation by God then he must accept the fact that he will be held accountable to God for the life he lives. If he can find a sensible alternative to God then he can do and choose as he wills, not as God wills.

A sense of self and a self determined belief about life is the ultimate motivator for believing in evolution. The Bible directly contradicts self-centered philosophy as a perception for living life. Obedience to God's Law is dramatically different than obedience to man's laws because the Bible removes man as the ultimate center of life. Man's laws are important, but God's Law is preeminent.

How can a book (Origin of the Species) written only 150 years ago by a single person be more important to these men than the Bible, which is the oldest book known to man? The Bible has always been the top seller since it was written. It has never been out sold!! The Bible out sells all other books because it impacts the world more than any other book. The Bible sets the standard for real truth because those who read it believe it is the factual Word of God. For those who seek to know God, the words of God are spirit breathed into the mind of man and under this anointing he begins to transform his thinking about spiritual matters. No other words of any other book have this spiritual anointing from God. This anointing creates an underlying affection for the Bible.

Well, to help direct your path in your quest to seek true wisdom, I offer this short defense of the Bible as being the only true Word from God. Most books of other religions were written by one man in a secluded place claiming to have heard from god or god's angel(s). These books are based on the testimony of one man's revelation and experience with his god. Books written by one man, in seclusion with no other witnesses, no historical account of the beginning, no account of God's involvement with man since the beginning and no archeological evidence supporting God's history with man.

On the other hand, the Bible is configured by sixty-six books written by forth five different authors over a period of two thousand years with a comprehensive accounting of God's involvement with the Israelites. Additionally, God spoke His message through the Old Testament and New Testament prophets was spoken out in the open many years before documentation occurred. Meaning, man's faith in Jehovah God of Israel existed long before documentation began. No other author of any other book can make this claim.

Isaiah 45:18-19 (KJV) - For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else. (19) I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.

Only God could inspire writing of the Bible over such a long period of time, through so many prophets. The Bible prophetically declares the future and then fulfills all prophecy tieing all the books together in a cohesive presentation of Messiah, whom God sent to deliver mankind from darkness. Then He made the Bible the most cherished and popular book of all times. Additionally, the Bible is mostly prophetic in its narrative structure, a most unique characteristic.

I encourage each spiritual seeker to be careful when accepting messages of revelation from one man (around which a religion was founded) concerning what his god has declared. Prior to accepting any non-biblical idea of truth, Investigate the uniqueness of the Bible's origins. The Bible merits everyone's sincere investigation, seeking to learn life's truth.

Is the Bible actually the true Word of God? See Origin of the Hebrew Language for evidence.

Did the Israelites really cross the Red Sea? See Red Sea Crossing for evidence.
