What’s special about the Bible

 

Why should anyone believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God? It is true that the Bible itself claims to be God’s word, but we cannot depend on these claims alone. To do so would be circular reasoning. We would be saying, in effect, ‘The Bible says it is the word of God, so what it says is true, and therefore it is correct when it says it is the word of God.’ This gets us nowhere. Other religions claim that their scriptures are inspired. Why should we believe the Bible rather than, say, the Koran or the Book of Mormon?  Read More >>

Is Bible the Absolute Truth

 

The problem with the belief that there are no absolutes is that the belief itself is contradictory. To prove it, you have to believe that there are absolutely no absolutes! Actually, it is more reasonable to say that all religions are wrong than to say that all of them are right. There is no middle way. Without absolute truth we have chaos. The Bible claims to contain absolute truth. How can we test its claims?  Read More >>

Is the Bible Our Final Authority

 

God will have a people upon the earth to maintain the Bible, and the Bible only, as the standard of all doctrines and the basis of all reforms. The opinions of learned men, the deductions of science, the creed or decisions of ecclesiastical councils, as numerous and discordant as are the churches which they represent, the voice of the majority-not one nor all of these should be regarded as evidence for or against any point of religious faith. Before accepting any doctrine or precept, we should demand a plain "Thus saith the Lord" in its support.-The Great Controversy, 595  Read More >>

Why Should I study the Bible

 

The Bible has been studied for centuries by people searching for God. It has changed many lives for the better and has comforted many sorrowful people. It is believed that the Bible contains the way to eternal life. The Bible claims itself to be inspired by God. And if this is so, then there are many reasons not to discard its words, but to find comfort and guidance within this holy Book.  Read More >>

How to Study the Bible

 

We must truly want to know the truth before we can know the truth. Our motives for studying the Bible must always be honourable and acceptable to God if we would receive instruction and guidance from the Holy Spirit.  "Whom shall He teach knowledge? And whom shall He make to understand doctrine?… For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line, here a little, and there a little." (Isaiah 28:9,10). The only correct and safe way of securing an understanding of a particular truth is to study everything that the Bible has to say about that specific topic.  Read More >>

How to interpret it

 

We certainly don’t have the option of interpreting the Bible according to our personal whim. Peter tells us (2 Peter 1:20) that scripture prophecy is not a matter of one’s own interpretation. The original writers of the scripture, the prophets, did not use their own interpretation of what was being revealed to them. At the present time we are not to interpret what we read in our own private, individual way. Neither the one who sends out the message nor the one who receives it are to put their own personal interpretation on the information. Read More >>

Christ and the Bible

 

After his resurrection Jesus found on the road to Emmaus some of his disciples who were deeply depressed and seemed to have quite lost the plot (Luke 24:13-27). He chides them with being ‘slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken’ (v. 25). His summary of ‘the prophets’ is that the Christ had ‘to suffer these things and then enter his glory’ (v. 26). Then, beginning with ‘Moses and all the Prophets’ he explained to them what was said about him ‘in all the Scriptures’.  Read More >>

Bible Symbols Chart

 

Why cloak Bible prophecies in Symbols? Luke 8 :10 And He said, "To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is given in parables, that 'Seeing they may not see, And hearing they may not understand. Many of the apocalyptic prophecies were given while the prophets were in a hostile foreign land. One reason God cloaked the prophecies in symbols was to protect the messages.

Principles of Biblical Interpretation

 

In studying the Bible, I have found the following rules to be of great service to myself, and now give them to the public by special request. Every rule should be well studied, in connection with the scripture references, if the Bible student would be at all benefited by them. 1. All Scripture is necessary, and may be understood by diligent application and study (2 Timothy 3:15-17). 2. Every word must have it’s proper bearing on the subject presented in the Bible (Matthew 5:17, 18). 3. Scripture must be it’s own expositor [explainer], since it is a rule of itself . . .  Read More >>

Questions on Bible Versions

Question: The newer Bible translations are said to be prepared with the use of the oldest and thus most accurate manuscripts. How do you respond to this? Response: That claim is certainly made. But the question is, is it valid? It is true that the oldest manuscripts are generally found in the so-called Egyptian textual stream. However, there is cause to think that those oldest manuscripts may well be part of a limited and localized textual stream, preserved by the unusually dry climate of that area . . .  Read More >>

"Discrepancies" in the Bible

What is a discrepancy in the Bible? For our purpose, a discrepancy in Scripture would be an idea, a thought, or a statement that appears discordant with or contradictory to other ideas or statements elsewhere in the Bible. Now the critical question is this, Are there discrepancies in the Bible? This question, in its essence, addresses the nature of the Bible. Does the Bible, in its nature, contain conflicting and inconsistent ideas and information?  Read More >>

The Bible and Science

 

There are people whose work entails using their eyes to investigate the kind of world in which we live. They are, of course, scientists. Much has been written about the conflict between science and faith. It is unfortunate that there has been such a bitter opposition between those exploring the creation of God and those exploring the God of creation. There has been distrust on both sides, but especially on the part of Christians who have found themselves with their backs to the wall, apparently dreading each new discovery, and ready to contest scientific findings as if they were the work of the enemy.  Read More >>

What does the Bible say about absolutes

 

The message is implicit everywhere today - "There are no absolutes." "Think what you want, say what you want, do what you want." The only absolute, the philosophy of the multitudes goes, is our own personal values which means, boldly, what we want. Often only the laws of society, which offers a degree of protection and stability, hinder some people from doing what seems right, or desirable, in their own eyes, as it was on occasion in Bible times (Judges 17:6; 21-25). As a result we have - and it's in the Bible - "those who call evil good, and good evil" (Isaiah 5:20).  Read More >>

Lost Books: Are they Really Lost?

 

Can the Pseudepigrapha, Apocrypha, and Didache actually be considered lost books, or was there another reason they weren't included in the Bible? Whether a book is considered “lost” depends on how we define the Bible.  Whether a book is considered “lost” depends on how we define the Bible. If it is a supernatural book inspired by God and preserved by God, then there cannot be any “lost books.” Obviously, if God inspired His Word it would be up to Him to preserve His Word so that human beings would be able to read it and benefit from it.  Read More >>
