Holding the Bible against all the standards of scholarly accuracy and reliability, the Bible stands head and shoulders above the classical works of literature that are accepted by secular culture. So, by their own standards they must admit to the reliability of the Bible or confess their anti-biblical bias.
Having established the Bible is reliable, can we establish its truth?
Let me share scientific evidence of the truth of the Bible.
3,400 years ago the Bible revealed these facts about our universe that have only recently been discovered by science:
The Bible said the earth is a sphere when most of people thought the earth is a flat disk. Those who declared the truth about a round earth were ridiculed and even persecuted until the 16th century when it was proven to indeed be round. The Bible was right and science was wrong.
The Bible taught that their are billions of stars in the universe when conventional wisdom believed there were 1,100 stars. Science has since discovered that there are, indeed, billions of stars in multiple galaxies through our universe. The Bible was right and science was wrong.
The Bible revealed that light is in motion while scientists for centuries believed it was fixed in place. Now, everyone readily accepts the fact that light is in motion at 186,000 miles per second! The Bible was right and science was wrong.
The Bible declared that air has weight but for centuries men believed air is weightless. Modern science now readily accepts that air has weight. Science was wrong and the Bible was right!
The Bible established that blood is a source of life and healing. But for years physicians believed that sick people must be bled to be healed. Bloodletting was commonly practiced as late as the 1700's when science discovered that life is in the blood! Who knew? The Bible knew!
For the better part of recorded human history, the Bible has been a more reliable source of truth than commonly held human understanding. Science has been wrong for many more years than it has been right. The Bible has always been right!
So, remember that when you are tempted to judge the Bible against scientific beliefs. The experience of history would teach us that science should be judged by the Bible!
Astronomer Robert Jastrow stated, "For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream...he is about to conquer the highest peak [of scientific truth]; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries."
Don't be intimidated by so called "learned scientists" who teach and believe in opposition to the revealed truths of the Bible. The God Who wrote the Bible and created the universe would have to be considered the original Scientist!
