The Bible: A Good Source to Check Up on Modern Deceptions

Bible

 

The Bible is God’s Word–which means it is the ONLY source of truth in the world today.

But what does that mean?

Why is it so important for man to have a source of the truth he can consult?

What, if any, are the PRACTICAL benefits of God’s Word?

There are several benefits for man to have a source of truth–never mind whether most men believe this to be true or not–he can consult.

Here are FIVE of those benefits to consulting, believing and living God’s Word, the Bible.

1- The Bible contains the truth about man and man’s conditions, afflictions and well-being.  By adhering to what God’s Word commands, man is able to unlock much good which God intended for ALL mankind.

2– Why does the reader suppose the world relentlessly attacks and changes the words of a book the world claims NOT to believe? Why is is so important for God’s Word to be obscured and hidden for so much of mankind? It is important because the Bible offers the ONLY true account of what is to shortly take place in the world.  It matters not if the reader believes this to be true or not–some events detailed in the Bible have already taken place. Those events will CONTINUE to take place on an almost daily basis until the return of Jesus Christ.  IF Satan and his workers of iniquity hope to achieve their limited success (as recounted in great detail in the Bible), they must mock and scoff at what God’s Word warns is to take place until few find the path to salvation.  Both spiritually and physically.

3- The Bible contains an unbroken history of the human condition, warts and all.  The Bible is NOT some account written by men to appeal to the pride and vanity of man.  IF one wants a prettied-up story of man and his foibles, the reader would be advised to consult one of the many compendiums which man has spent centuries compiling. IF the reader wishes to know about man and his many shortcomings–as well as what to do to mitigate these flaws–then the Bible is the reference work without peer.

4- The Bible provides a kind of source code against which to check the many modern deceptions in the world today.  There are so many deceptions in the modern world, most readers would be initially overwhelmed by the truth which the Bible contains. But this is one of the book’s great values: it provides a rock against which the stories of modern man might be measured.  For example, there are a GREAT many modern stories which circulate concerning the health and physical, mental and spiritual afflictions of man.  It is helpful to consult God’s Word on these torments.  What does the Bible say about senility and dementia, for instance?  Might modern man’s understanding of various afflictions and torments be quite different from what God’s Word provides? Might there be some advantage to be gained by those who presently control the world to keep the bulk of mankind in the dark as to the true nature of man and his condition? The Bible provides the truth about man–and sometimes, the truth is not initially soothing to the one hearing it.

5- The Bible contains not only true information about man, man’s many afflictions and their nature, it also contains important warnings for the future.  ANY and ALL who heed the warnings of God’s Word will avoid a host of problems. It is suspected that for this reason alone, the Bible must be attacked until few believe what it contains.

What the Bible contains is true–which is why the world ridicules, attacks and otherwise challenges what is written in God’s Word.

This should provide a clue as to the REAL value of God’s Word to man.

DOES the reader believe the Bible?

OR, does the reader believe the Bible IF God’s Word does not conflict with the man stories concocted by man?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
