I get it. For us to believe that the Bible is God’s word because it says it is doesn’t hold much water. Spare the comments.

However, there are internal evidences within the book that give credence to its claim to be divinely inspired.

1.The Bible has amazing unity – Some 40 authors with about half that many different professions – kings, shepherds, fisherman, lawgivers – wrote over a 1,600 year time span and still there is major consistency and unity in the message of the book. What other book can make that claim?

2. The Bible has been amazing preservation – Not a few times has the Bible been sent into exile, burned and discarded, yet we still have them. It will not go away.

3. The Bible is historically accurate – anyone who says the Bible is filled with contradictions hasn’t done their homework. Indeed there are any number of websites intent on pointing out inconsistencies. There are an equal number that have answered such challenges. Who you going to believe?

4. The Bible is scientifically accurate – the Earth is round (Isaiah 40:22), suspended in space, (Job 26:7) among countless stars (Genesis 15:5) and introduces the 1st and 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics. (Isaiah 51:6.)

5. The Bible has been an influence for good – Okay, not always, but….think Shakespeare, Milton, da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Ninja Turtles (just kidding), Rembrandt, Bach, Handel, Brahms…

6. The Bible is honest – It’s not all good about the heroes in the book – lies, adultery, betrayal, doubt…

7. The Bible is accurate in its prophecies – Nostradamus was right something like 10% of the time. The Bible has never missed. Never ever.

8. The Bible changes lives – Let’s make a list of how many people’s lives have been transformed for the better because they decided to become agnostic or atheist and compare that to the list of those who have been changed because of the message in the Book.

There is something about the Book. It says it was written/inspired by the the Divine. Perhaps it was.
