The Predictions of the Bible, Part 4 of 4

September 17, 2012
Most so-called prophets bathe their predictions in mystery and allegory. Few give the names of specific places and people as the Bible does. Nostradamus never predicted the death of a great city the way the Bible tells of ancient Tyre’s judgment. Today we’ll study why fulfilled prophecy means you can trust that the Bible is true — down to the smallest detail.

Living With Your Passions
In a hyper-sexualized culture, sex is either reduced to pleasure-seeking or conflated with our identity. But God designed us as sexual beings for emotional and spiritual intimacy whose highest calling is to worship Him. In this revised edition, Pastor Erwin Lutzer draws on forty years of ministry experience to present a rationale for sexual purity. He gives an honest answer to the sexual pressures we face like extramarital relationships, self-gratification, same-sex attraction, and more. As desire-driven creatures, we don't have to pursue happiness at the expense of character. With our identity grounded in Christ, we can live victoriously with our passions.

In clear language, the Bible predicts what will happen hundreds of years before events take place. This is fulfilled prophecy — and fulfilled prophecy is a powerful reason for trusting the Bible to be true and authoritative. Today we’ll hear more examples of how predicted events came to be fact.

In a day of terabytes in processing power, finding hidden codes in the Bible may seem timely. But is this how God validates His word? Pastor Lutzer takes a common-sense approach to the Bible Code issue, and calls us to return to the plain words of God-inspired Scripture.

One of the key reasons for trusting the Bible is its accuracy in predicting the future. Its prophecies have been fulfilled again and again. Yet some point to a Bible “code” as evidence of hidden revelation. Today: the “Bible Code” analyzed, and why it’s not needed to prove the Bible’s divine origin.

Is the Bible historically accurate? Lots of scholars say “no,” even when new findings prove otherwise. The bottom line is that you can trust this book. Running life’s race demands a trustworthy guidebook. Today, we will explore why the Bible is reliable in both historical and in spiritual truth.

Lots of scholars take pot shots at the Bible, claiming it’s not historically accurate. The trouble is, mounting evidence proves otherwise. All it takes is a trip to Israel to verify the uncanny precision of the Bible’s geographical references. The more the Bible is attacked, the better it looks.

Most of us believe what we read in the newspaper. After all, no critical scholars hold seminars to debunk the New York Times. Though they are slow to attack a well-known newspaper, critics are quick to debunk the Bible. And since the Bible is under perennial attack for its accuracy, just how reliable is it? Can it stand up to its critics?

We’ve had the Bible on the witness stand for a few days, and it’s told us over 1,500 times that the Word of the Lord was communicated through its authors. These men spoke with a single voice, although they wrote over a 1,600-year span of time. We now have a choice: either this book is true, or it is the biggest lie ever perpetrated. Which is it?

To gather evidence, courts take testimony from witnesses. To evaluate the claims of the Bible, we’ll put it on the witness stand. As the cross-examination begins, we find a book that claims to speak for God. In fact, it claims God spoke through its authors. Today we will look at the claims the Bible makes for itself.
September 5, 2012
The Bible was written by 40 authors over a period of 1,600 years — still you can see a clear unity despite the diversity of its authors. And this book makes some remarkable claims for itself. Today, we’ll pause in the race of life long enough to put the Bible on the witness stand and hear its own testimony.
September 4, 2012
The Bible stands up to even the most intense scrutiny. If you’re seeking the truth with an open, honest and humble heart, you will find it in the Bible. As we run the race of life, we are confronted by doubters who point to apparent errors or contradictions in the Bible as a reason not to believe. Beginning today, Pastor Lutzer takes a look at some of these “errors” and gives us some explanations.
