I’m excited to pursue this topic and become better at explaining why I believe the Bible, also called the Holy Scriptures, as used by the Christian church, no words removed or added such as some religions have done, is true and trustworthy. As my friend said who is going to be leading a study on this, “In the past we didn’t have to explain why we trust the Bible. Now, over half of church-going, self-described believers say that they are not sure if the Bible is 100% true.” I couldn’t find the study for that but it’s common knowledge that many people in today’s culture think the Bible is just a book of moral stories or contains words of wisdom, but not necessarily actual events or the word of God. It’s more important than ever to know WHAT you believe and WHY and be able to answer that question. But before I list any of my reasons, I’d like to hear from you!
Why do you trust or not trust the Bible? Do you prefer one version over another? Do you base your life and beliefs on the Word? Is it the foundation of your faith? If not, what do you base your faith on? Please share in the comments.
