Believing The Bible

Greetings My Friends;
Believing the truth of the Bible is pretty much of a challenge for most people. Many people say that they believe in Jesus, but the Bible has too many holes in it. They look for things to reject.
Let's take a look at the Bible again, this time through spiritual eyes, not human eyes. The first thing we have to do is recognize that nothing is impossible with God, and the next thing is that God does not lie.
The Bible says what it does, because it was inspired by God. When you accept that fact, you must also realize that if God wrote the Bible, He would make sure that those He dictated it to would get it right.
I have heard the arguments that if God is a loving God, He would not send people to hell just because of what they themselves did not consider important. They are trying to make themselves feel less condemned when they spout off like that.
When you tell these people that the Bible means what it says, it is not up to us to say what God really meant. A lot of people cannot get it through their heads, that God does not send people to hell, they send themselves, by the choices they do or do not make. The Bible makes it very plain, that only through Jesus can a person be saved. At that point, the conversation is usually over.
People that believe in evolution, and totally reject creation, have a long list of questions they cannot answer. An example is the fact that fish fossils have been found in mountains. The remains of different species, have been found a half a world away from where they belong. Oil and coal are found in the wrong places. Those are just for starters.
 Another frequent argument is Noah's flood. Besides where did all of the water come from? It is impossible for so many people, and animals to show up that quick in the historic timeline. How could people be so advanced so quick? How come historical records didn't record the second beginning?
Well my friends, it is a matter of faith. I look at it this way. If some of what is in the Bible is wrong, the whole thing becomes suspect. God is a liar at that point. God however is not a liar.
I believe that when we get to heaven we will find out how and why. Remember we are dealing with a God who can do anything. If God wanted 10 million people on the earth  one day after the flood, all He had to do was say so. He could have planted 65 million-year-old dinosaur bones the same way. Maybe this sounds simplistic to you, but nothing is impossible with God.
Remember, God created the world in the first place. He can manipulate whatever, whenever, and wherever. He is God. We just have to believe. As the old saying goes, and it does show up in the Bible, the bowl does not tell the Potter how to make it.  Give your brain a rest, relax, and let your heart guide you. Stay in the word and just believe. If I am wrong, you haven't lost anything. If I am right however, you stand the chance of losing everything.
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation;
Father, I repent of all of my sins. I believe Jesus suffered, died, and rose again to forgive all of my sins and to make salvation possible. I ask Jesus to come into my heart to be my personal savior. Thank you Lord.
