As I said in my last post, I was going to post a post on a paper that I wrote in my senior year of high school. First off, I am not trying to prove anything in this paper. This paper was written for my enjoyment to show the infallibility of Scripture through Scripture alone and through a couple of dead unbelievers. It is a pretty interesting paper and I think that you all will enjoy it. Here it is:
The Indestructible Word of God
The Bible is the most important book in the entire world and it is under attack everyday. Skeptics are ignorant of it, infidels despise it, and liberals trash it. The unseen forces of evil and even some human beings want to demolish the Bible off the face of the earth. Others love it and hold fast to its astounding truths. Is the Bible reliable or is it just an untrustworthy source of fairy tales? Is this book indestructible or is it a book that can be destroyed? These are two significant questions that provide us with simple, but concrete answers.
First of all, is the Bible reliable or is it an untrustworthy source of fairy tales? The Bible easily provides answers to both of those questions in 2 Timothy 3:16. That verse states that: "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." 2 Timothy 3:16 clearly says that ALL scripture was inspired by God. The end result of the matter provides overwhelming evidence for the reliability of Scripture through Scripture alone. The Bible can clearly be trusted as a reliable source, not as a book of fairy tales. Overall, it is truly amazing to be able to fully trust the Scriptures as God's infallible, inerrant Word.
Finally, is the Bible an indestructible book or is it a book that can be destroyed? This question is easily answered by two dead unbelievers, who made it their life's mission to destroy the Bible. However, their plans failed miserably resulting in humorous effects. Voltaire, the French philosopher, in 1776 said, "100 years from my day, there will not be a Bible in the earth except one that is in a museum." Voltaire should have held his tongue because a hundred years later; Voltaire's home was used to store Bibles and to distribute them all over Europe. Again, Voltaire made a foolish comment, "It took twelve men to start Christianity; one will destroy it." Voltaire died that same exact year. Wow! God is not mocked (Galatians 6:7). Also, another man named Robert Ingersoll said, "In fifteen years, I will have this book (Bible) in the morgue." Fifteen years later, Ingersoll was in the morgue. God definitely has an incredible sense of humor and an extreme protection over His Word.
God's amazing Word is truly reliable and indestructible. Isaiah 40:8 says, "The grass withers, the flower falls off, but the Word of our God will stand forever." All in all, the Bible is and will always be God's wonderful words of light that continues to illuminate the hearts of unregenerate sinners and refreshes the hearts of His true followers.
His Word can fully be trusted. Sola Deo Gloria!!!!
