Why the Bible is the Most Important Book in the World! Can we know that the Bible is the Word of God? This is a huge question and if you’re not asking it, you should be. This is an important topic to defend, for we argue constantly of why we believe, what we believe and we argue from the Bible that this is God’s word. So, if I am going to say that this is God’s work, I better be absolutely sure and ready to defend it. This is a difficult task in this day and age. The Bible is not the only book that claims to be the Word of God. We have the Book of Mormon; the Avesta; the Talmud; the Qur'an; the Bhagavad Gita, all claiming to be the spiritual words of us being joined to some sort of God. So here in lies the problem with these books, these sayings, these words; they all contradict one another. So we have a couple of options here before you; they can all be wrong or possibly true but they can’t all be right, that is not possible. So as we talk about the Word of God here, if indeed there is a God, He would be perfect and His words would not contradict, they would be sound, speak of truth and be just. So the question that you have to ask yourself as we stack the evidence today is this; is the Bible just a book, no different than any other? Let us begin to review the facts. (Vicky): Is this idea of unity in presenting one central message or theme a logical approach? Please indulge me in this exercise. Below your chair you will find a paper and pencil. Take a few minutes to write down everything you know the Bible to be. Now, would you give a few reasons in response to this? Court: We believe that reading the Bible with an open mind tends to produce atheists. You have to carefully close your mind and read with blinders on if you want t... ... middle of paper ... ...tty. Court: So if we were to consider everything you bought before us today, how could we know you speak the truth? Vicky: For the Bible tells me so: Hebrews 4:12(KJV) For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 2 Timothy 3:16(KJV) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: We utilize it for everything, for if it is the Word of God, it is perfect, it is just and the only thing I can stand on, for I am not! (I don’t get what u are saying here) The Bible is the most important book in the world. It is the most quoted, most sought after, most read, and most sold book of all time!! - AMEN
