Is the Bible what it claims to be? by Arthur James Bendle Download PDF EPUB FB2

Only the Christian Bible claims to be God’s very word to man and only the Bible contains the verifiable track record of prophetic fulfillment as evidence of its claims. Biblical prophecies are batting No other religious group or religious writings can make the same claim.

The Bible is a collection of 66 books written by about 40 authors, in three different languages, on three different continents, over approximately years. The Bible claims to be inspired and inerrant. This means that came from God and that it is without error in everything it addresses (2 Tim.

The bible which is known to be the holy book of Christians has been judged as a demonic book in the past by a spiritualist and occult man who claims to be Lucifer. This man claiming to be Lucifer made this shocking revelation during an interview with us at studios.

The Bible is the Word of God, because it is the Book of Infinites—the revelation of what nature, without it, never could have attained, and, coming short of the knowledge of which, nature were lost.

The greatest need of the soul is salvation. It is such a knowledge of God as shall assure us of "comfort" here and hereafter. The Scripture claims to be God's Word, therefore the claim ought to be examined. The consequences of ignoring its message can cause someone to spend eternity apart from the living God.

Therefore the matter of the nature of the Bible is of the utmost importance for humans to consider. The Bible claims to come directly from God, and the Bible claims to be true in everything it says.

But those two claims by themselves wouldn't necessarily make the Scriptures something on which we all should base our lives. After all, if God were to inspire an extremely accurate dictionary, it probably wouldn't change much for most people. The Book of Daniel was written during this period and included in the Septuagint at the last moment, though the text itself claims to have been written sometime around B.C.

The Bible claims to be the word of God This fact does not settle the issue, of course. The Koran claims to be the word of Allah; the Book of Mormon claims to be the revelation of God. But at least we know that Christians do not believe something about the Bible which it does not claim for itself.

Pastor claims first trumpet from the Book of Revelation is about to be blown. The Book of Revelation is the final book of the Bible and the New Testament.

In the book seven trumpets are sounded, one at a time, that unleash apocalyptic events witnessed and spoken of by John of Patmos in his vision. According to Revelation chapter eight, the. (OPINION) ETH – Several Bible scholars according to Express, are now claiming that the seals in the Book of Revelation have now been broken and that End of the World is now upon us.

They also believe the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse who bring death, war, famine, and disease before the return of Jesus [ ]. The Bible is the only book with supernatural confirmation to support its claim of divine inspiration. The testimony of Christ and the legacy of prophecy are two proofs for inspiration.

A third line of evidence is the unity of the Bible. The Bible covers hundreds of topics, yet it. There can be no doubt that the Bible does claim to be the very Word of God. This is clearly seen in Paul’s commendation to Timothy: “ from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

Pope Francis has responded to claims that many of his teachings “contradict Bible teachings” by saying that his words “overrule” anything written in the Bible. The Bible (from Koine Greek τὰ βιβλία, tà biblía, "the books") is a collection of religious texts or scriptures sacred to Christians, Jews, Samaritans, Rastafari and others.

They generally consider the Bible to be a product of divine inspiration and a record of the relationship between God and Bible appears in the form of an anthology, a compilation of texts of a variety. The Bible is a sealed book; and can only be understood by divine intervention. (Luke ) “Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the Scriptures ” But what kind of people are those who will not (in any manner) understand.

Simply because a particular book claims to be from God does not mean that it is from God. However, to say that the claim of inspiration “is pointless double-speak” greatly diminishes the importance of such a claim.

The fact is, the claim of inspiration at the hand of God is extremely rare. The Bible candidly claims to be "given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness" (2 Timothy ).

Of course, the Bible is not the only book to claim divine inspiration, but it is unique in that it offers substantial evidence to back its claims. The Bible is the Word of God written for His people, spanning 66 books in the Old and New Testaments combined. It is the best selling book of all time with over 50 billion copies sold and distributed.

According to Wycliffe Global Alliance, at least one portion of Scripture has been translated for 3, of the 7, existing languages; the Bible in its entirety has been translated in languages. Many books have claimed to be the Word of God or divine.

In addition to the Bible, various groups have claimed divine inspiration for the Apocrypha, Book of Mormon, Qur'an, and other works. How do we know the Bible is the Word of God. First, we must read it to determine if its facts are accurate.

New Bible students are struck by the Bible's authoritative claims about itself. For instance, Paul writes in II Timothy"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God." The phrase "inspiration of God" is in Greek theopneustos, literally "God-breathed." Scripture, then, is a direct product of God's mind and being.

We know the Bible is a compilation of 66 books and letters written by more than 40 authors over a period of approximately 1, years in three different languages. How, then, can we claim it is God-breathed. Inspiration means the Bible truly is the Word of God and makes the Bible unique among all other books.

While there are different views as to the extent to which the Bible is inspired, there can be no doubt that the Bible itself claims that every word in every part of the Bible comes from God (1 Corinthians ; 2 Timothy ).

The New Testament claims to be God’s revealed Word to humanity. It claims the following things: it is a record of God speaking, it is infallible, it was written to benefit future generations, it is eternal and unchanging, it is powerful, true, a guide for daily living, authoritative, and the Word of God.

The Bible makes some very bold claims. First, it says it is the Word of God. In the Old Testament book of Nehemiah, chapter 8, we’re told the law of Moses was read, and in verse 8 it claims it is the law of God. Criticism of the Bible is an interdisciplinary field of study concerning the factual accuracy of the claims and the moral tenability of the commandments made in the Bible, the holy book of considered to be the perfect word of God by devout Christians (and the Jewish parts by devout Jews), scholars and scientists have endeavored for centuries to scrutinise the texts to.

God inspired the writing of the Scriptures, and the Scriptures themselves claim to be inspired. I believe that this claim of inspiration in a faultless book is a very powerful argument.

In addition, I believe that it's quite amazing that the Bible constitutes 66 book by 40 different authors, and yet it folds together into one complete book.

In his best-selling novel, "The Da Vinci Code," Dan Brown wrote that the Bible was assembled during the famous Council of Nicea in C.E., when Emperor Constantine and church authorities purportedly banned problematic books that didn't conform to their secret that's not how it really went.

"The Da Vinci Code" was fiction, but Brown wasn't the first to credit the Council. Pollster Frank Luntz also refuted a claim that he had heard the resident using the n-word, writing in a tweet at the weekend: "I'm in ‪@Omarosa's book on page She claims to have heard from. In contrast, news reporter Lee Strobel comments about the Book of Mormon: "Archaeology has repeatedly failed to substantiate its claims about events that supposedly occurred long ago in the Americas.

I remember writing to the Smithsonian Institute to inquire about whether there was any evidence supporting the claims of Mormonism, only to be. However, the Bible does make that claim.

The Bible clearly declares itself to be the revealed will of God in five distinct ways: 1. The authors testify that what they are writing is true. They purposefully intended their writings to be received as fact, not as fiction: Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile an account of the things.

This is an example of an "internal" evidence that the Bible is the Word of God. Internal evidences are those things stated within the Bible that claim its divine origin. A few other internal evidences are the unity of the Bible, the fulfilled prophecies in the Bible, and the unique, powerful authority of the Bible.

In the case of the Bible, the Koran, and the Book of Mormon, all three claim to be from God, and to be infallible. The Diary of Anne Frank, from what I understand, makes no such claim. “Well, is good for you that I am reading the Bible, otherwise, I would be having you for dinner”.

Don’t know if the story is true, but it drives a point: if you meet the Creator through the Bible, and you care to read what His purpose was when creating all, you will be changed one way or another, and most likely for the better.

Blessings. The Bible: What It Claims to Be The word “Bible” is of Greek origin—“Biblos” meaning “The Book.” It is found in the New Testament, as that is the part of the book originally written in Greek.

The first sentence in the New Testament is: “The book of the generation of. It is fallacious to assume, other than in the conversational sense, that the Bible is one book that claims to be divinely inspired.

Now, the Book of Mormon, the New World Translation (NWT), and the Quran all fall subject to this claim, and this is why it is so easy to refute them. Some claim that there are books in the Bible that have been lost and recently been discovered like the Lost Gospel of Judas.

There is even a Gospel of Mary. Even the Old Testament is said to be missing these apocrypha books, like Tobit, Judith, Maccabees, The First and Second Book. The simple reality of the Bible is that it was written by people.

If you don’t believe me, then I have to question how carefully you’ve actually read it as countless books of the Bible explicitly state their human authorship, i.e.

every single one of Paul’s letters just to name a few. Hence, when approaching Bible difficulties, the wisdom of St. Augustine is best: “If we are perplexed by any apparent contradiction in Scripture, it is not allowable to say, The author of this book is mistaken; but either [1] the manuscript is faulty, or [2] the translation is wrong, or [3] you have not understood.” (Augustine, City of God.

With overBible prophecy books sold, Mark Hitchcock is fast becoming one of the most popular and widely trusted voices on this topic. The Amazing Claims of Bible Prophecy is his newest release.

This book takes a fascinating look at one of the most important aspects of Bible prophecy: It confirms the divine origin and complete reliability of God’s s:   Coronavirus: Bizarre claim Book of Revelation warns epidemic could have 'huge death toll' CORONAVIRUS disease (COVID) could huge a huge death toll if a chilling prophecy in the Bible's Book of.

The Bible does not make this claim for itself and in fact states in the Prologue to the Gospel of St. John that Jesus Christ is the Word of God, not the Bible. History: Before the Christian Bible was commissioned a number of scrolls and texts were floating around believed by some to be inspired of God and not so by others.Humanists reject the claim that the Bible is the word of God.

They are convinced the book was written solely by humans in an ignorant, superstitious, and cruel age. They believe that because the writers of the Bible lived in an unenlightened era, the book contains many errors and harmful teachings. The Bible never claims to be a science textbook.

Nevertheless, the Bible claims to be “true from the beginning” (PsalmKJV), so every specific reference about science must be accurate. Indeed, this is one way the Bible’s authenticity can be tested.
