Why I Believe in the Inerrancy of the Scriptures (44 KB)
Since many books claim divine origin, we human beings must be able to recognize whether a book is in fact the word of God. Our reasoning faculties must be sufficiently competent to consider the evidence of inspiration and inerrancy, applying the law of contradiction and other self-evident rules of logic in order to ascertain whether the Bible is consistent with a supernatural origin. If the Holy Spirit is responsible for what the biblical writers wrote, and if the Bible contains errors in historical details, then the Holy Spirit is the author of error. If the Scriptures are not inerrant and completely trustworthy, then God himself is equally untrustworthy.
Is the Bible the Word of God? (598 KB)
Is the Bible the infallible word of an Almighty God, as fundamentalist Christians believe? Or is the Bible a collection of Hebrew myths and legends, as atheists and agnostics allege? Do you believe in the Bible by faith alone, trusting that the faith of your parents was correct? Is there any way to prove the Bible is the word of God instead of the Islamic holy book, the Quran (Koran)? Does historical and archaeological evidence favours the Bible, or are they against it? Can the Bible's inspiration be proven by human reason? Does God allow us to believe in any religion we want, because "all ways lead to God"? Do human beings live in a world without meaning, in which random natural processes created their bodies and they decompose them for similar reasons? Is the purpose of life merely to maximize pleasure and minimize pain while avoiding getting "caught"? Or do men and women's lives have purpose, because an Almighty God is working out a great plan of His own here below? If the Bible is the Word of God, what is your part in God's plan for humanity? Are there any real answers to the mystery of life? Or are we just supposed to try to figure it all out on our own, using human reason and emotion to stumble along?
Biblical Authority (58 KB)
The Bible is God's message to mankind spoken in words by God Himself. Let us not dishonor Jesus by doubting and disobeying His authoritative word. Jesus' person is inescapable from His words. All Christians must be in submission to God's final authority--the inspired, therefore, inerrant Word of God.
Chicago Statement of Biblical Inerrancy (53 KB)
The authority of Scripture is a key issue for the Christian Church in this and every age. Those who profess faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour are called to show the reality of their discipleship by humbly and faithfully obeying God's written Word. To stray from Scripture in faith or conduct is disloyalty to our Master. Recognition of the total truth and trustworthiness of Holy Scripture is essential to a full grasp and adequate confession of its authority.
Bible's Foundation (47 KB)
The Bible Foundation is enshrined in the first 3 Chapters of Genesis. Destroy these 3 chapters and you have destroyed the Bible. If the first 3 chapters are not taken seriously and real but as a mythological story, then sin is not real and the coming of Christ useless for in that case there is no need to render an account of our life to God for He also would not be real and thus, in our illusion, we would be free from anyone over our lives. And this is exactly what Satan and heathens and Evolution would want us to believe. But we must contend earnestly for the true Faith once for all delivered to the saints (Jud 1:3).
What is Biblical Prophecy (49 KB)
Prophecy is a message from God Almighty intended to encourage obedience and trust and to give us hope for things to come.
In a nutshell Prophecy in the NT is: “the proclamation of the inspired declaration of divine will and purpose of God to His elect people, as revealed by the Holy Spirit, suited to their specific needs of the moment and comprehensible to them”.
The Perfect Doctrine (37 KB)
The human heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked, and we see proof of that in ALL religions with all sorts of doctrines within the same group. Christianity is no different with its hundreds, indeed thousands of splinter groups each with its peculiar doctrine and everyone claiming to be the correct one and the others false. This is nothing else but the result of vanity in the human soul.
