by Mike Matthews […]

Jesus Christ and His followers were fearless when it came to proclaiming God’s Word. What gave them such boldness and self-assuredness? They knew without a shadow of doubt the eternal power and absolute trustworthiness of each word in scripture. They also knew that the Holy Spirit went before them, impressing hearers with the truth of His Word.

You’re sharing the gospel and out of the blue you’re asked, “How do you know the Bible is true?” How would you answer?

If you’ve read much on the subject, you’ve probably come across long lists of “proofs”—amazing prophecies, archaeological discoveries, and the like. Yet this emphasis can get some important points backward, if the Bible is to be our guide. Continue reading →

    This article is bad. It uses the Bible to prove the veracity of the Bible. How do you know I am right when I say I am? Because you can just read the sentence: I am right! There! Proof!
    Rather than put out this fluff and believe in it, we should understand that we believe that the Bible is God’s Word by faith. A faith that is built not on logical fallacies like this argument in the post, but a faith built on the witness of the Spirit to our heart and mind.

    Furthermore, how can I respect AIG when they post such articles? Are they serious about understanding truth? Are they so into themselves that they can not see anything beyond themselves?

    Also this line:
    “Jesus Christ and His followers were fearless when it came to proclaiming God’s Word. What gave them such boldness and self-assuredness? They knew without a shadow of doubt the eternal power and absolute trustworthiness of each word in scripture. They also knew that the Holy Spirit went before them, impressing hearers with the truth of His Word.”

    The Holy Spirit certainly impresses many with the truth of the Word, but to imply that all were impressed that the words of Jesus were truth is false. Many have bought into the false idea that everyone who hears the Gospel knows it is true. They do not. It is an unbiblical assumption that skewers many people’s understanding of truth. Many false doctrines arise from that bad assumption.
