"I don't trust the Bible. It's just a book written by people. It can't be trusted."
Have you ever heard this? I've heard this from people of all ages.
When I hear this, I often ask, "Do you use instruction manuals? What about math books? History books?"
Individuals always respond, "Of course."
And this is the problem with their rejection of the Bible. All of these books were penned by people, yet they are trusted.
It is true that the Bible was penned by men. However, it was also inspired by God.
King David wrote, “The Spirit of the Lord speaks through me; his words are upon my tongue. The God of Israel spoke. The Rock of Israel said to me: 'The one who rules righteously, who rules in the fear of God.'"
The Bible was written by men and was inspired by God.
How did we get the Bible? Men wrote down what God desired so all people at all times could know the truth of origin, meaning, morality, destiny, salvation, and more.
Reflect: Proverbs 2. How would you describe the Bible? Is it wisdom? Confusing? Something else? How does God's wisdom differ from the world's wisdom?
Respond: How can you integrate more of God's Word into your life?
