The Reliability of the Bible, Part 2 of 3

September 10, 2012
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.

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.

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.

Sometimes in a business deal, the negotiations come down to one choice — you either take it or leave it. As a guidebook for the race of life, we must either take the Bible as it is, or reject it outright. Picking only the parts you like will not do.

Beneath the shifting sands of our culture there’s a bedrock that is immovable and unchangeable. That bedrock is the Bible. The Bible gives direction to those running life’s race, not just for this life, but for the life to come. Beginning today, we’ll study why you can trust this book with your life.

As the songwriter penned, “Love is a Many-Splendored Thing.” And its greatest splendors are found in 1 Corinthians 13. Real love seeks the good of others first, and our personal benefit last. This is a far cry from the way people are attracted to each other these days. But as Christians, we are held to a higher standard. We are called to love others as Christ has.

From time to time the issue of spiritual gifts has divided believers. Speaking in tongues has long caused contention. The Apostle Paul put that issue to rest a long time ago in his writings to the church at Corinth. He taught that there is something that far transcends all spiritual gifts — and that something is love.

These days, the problem with the word “love” is one of definition. People “love” their cars, and “love” new fashions. But millennia ago, the Apostle Paul wrote the ultimate essay on love. After studying 1 Corinthians 13, there’s no doubt as to what real love is, and what it isn’t. Today we will study more details on God’s view of love — the love He shows us, and the love we are to show to others.
