Today, I would like to talk about how the Bible is the best book in the universe. First off, I'll say that I think that the KJV (King James Version) is the only right one. No offense intended to people who believe in and/or use other Bible versions.
The Bible is 100% truth. Everything the Bible says is true and God is true to His Word. He placed His Word above even Himself. People have pointed out such "contradictions" as when in Samuel 1, at the end it said that king Saul slew himself with his own sword so that the Philestenes wouldn't kill him first. Then in Samuel 2 a man came up and informed David that he had slew Saul upon Saul's own request. Confusing though this may seem, it is not a contradiction. The man that claimed to have slain Saul was lying.
Another seemingly contradiction is, in the Old Testament, the Bibles says, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. But in the New Testament, its says to turn the other cheek.
Again, this is no contradiction. The Old Testament law was different from theNewTestament law. I think that God shows us what kind of laws the Jews had before the Savior [Jesus] came so that we can see how back before Jesus's gift of Salvation was available that people were guaranteed to go to Heaven when they died by obeying God's commandments and asking for forgiveness, a combination of works and [the] grace [of God]. But after Jesus's gift of Salvation was available, I am guaranteed going to Heaven when I die (if I have accepted God's gift, which I have) by grace alone. Accepting God's gift of Salvation is telling Him that I believe in Him and to forgive me for all the sins that I've ever committed. After that point, yes, I will still sin, but this time those sins won't keep me from going to Heaven. When I asked God to forgive all my sins back when I first got saved, God forgave all my sins ever committed, as well as any that I would commit in the future. (Still, when I commit a sin, I should still ask God to forgive me then anyway.) Thus, the gift of Salvation is by the grace of God, through faith. Not of works lest any man should boast.
Now that I've finally gotten past that point, let's get back to my topic. The Bible is even scientifically accurate. Recently, there was news that laughing helps to keep you healthy. I don't remember all the details, but they found all this after a 40 year study. Centuries before that study even started, the Bible stated A merry hearth doeth good like a medicine.
The Bible said that the world was round (forgot the refference, but it's somewhere on the book of Job) long before people saw that.
In the Psalms, the Bible talks about the Paths of the seas long before Matthew Maury discovered ocean currents. In fact, Maury got the idea to look for ocean current by read that verse on Psalms.
I know that some will argue that the Bible isn't scientifically accurate because it, obviously, it teaches Creation instead of Evolution, if I don't mention this. So here's a few links refferancing that:
I'd also like to take a few minutes to talk about evolution, and probability. The evolutionists teach that if given enough time a monkey could type at random a whole book.
The probability that a monkey could type the words "Mathematics" is 1/3,670,344,486,987,776 (1 in 3,670,344,486,987,776), much less an entire book. The probability of a monkey typing an entire book is so large that no human can comprehend it. For me, that right there, coupled with the fact that the universe is so complicated and so well designed that only someone with an understanding much greater than that of humans could have done it, disproves evolution.
The probability brings up another argument for my Bible thoughts. Probability supports the Bible because the possibility of the prophecies contained therein comes out to a number so unlikely, that someone must be in control of them. God.
I'll give you an example of one of the prophecies. The Bible says that in the last days there would be wars and rumors of wars. We are currently living in the last days. Soon, the rapture will take place. Well, we are having and hearing about wars. There are other prophecies as well that I could go on and on about, but I don't have the time to present them at present.
That's all for now. Thanks fur reading my little "sermons".
