Why We Have the Bible

By   •   December 30   •   Topics:

God caused the Bible to be written for the express purpose of revealing to us God’s plan for His redemption. God caused the Book to be written that He might make His everlasting laws clear to His children, and that they might have His great wisdom to guide them, and His great love to comfort them as they make their way through life. For without the Bible this world would indeed be a dark and frightening place, without signpost or beacon. The Bible easily qualifies as the only book in which God’s revelation is contained.

There are many bibles of different religions; there is the Mohammedan Koran, the Buddhist Canon of Sacred Scripture, the Zoroastrian Zend-Avesta, and the Brahman Veda . . . They all begin with some flashes of true light, and end in utter darkness. Even the most casual observer soon discovers that the Bible is radically different. It is the only Book that offers redemption to us and points the way out of our dilemma.

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus, as I read Your Word, Your truth shines through and illuminates a dark world.

  4. Linda says:

    I was saved back in the early 70’s then later on in life I drifted away from God’s word. But always kept him within my heart, and prayed occasionally. Now that I am in a good relationship with a Christian man, he is my angel and I know that God sent him to me. I have become closer to God stronger than ever before. With my Christian partner, the Bible and watching reruns of Billy Graham Crusade and my prayers along with my prayer book. Great things have happen in my life for the better and it is the best things that I thought would never happen. All I can say is Thank you to my heavenly father that you gave your son to die for me so that I may become a better person and have everlasting life with Jesus. Amen.

    We know that the Bible mentions love such as John 3:16, I Cor. 13, etc., but I got word that the Koran doesn’t mention love at all.
