‘The Bible is an unreliable book, because it is written by man.’ Every book in the world is written by man. Do you think that, for this reason, all the books are unreliable? If it is such a sense, we may be able to be unreliable all the books in the world. Because its author is also mere a man. Nobody think so. Denying the Bible for that is severe mistake not to believe in God actually. The Bible’s author is man, but its teaching do not come from man. In other words, the Bible was written by the Prophets who received the Holy Spirit of God.
2 Peter 1:21-22
Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
Here, pay attention to this word ‘The prophecy comes from God‘. For example, a rich man ask a lawyer to make his will. The lawyer writes his will at his dictation. In his will, the thinking and word of the rich man are written, not the lawyer’s. The Bible is like that. Though it is written by man, the word and will in it come from God. The real author of the Bible is Almighty God and it is God’s thing. Therefore, let us see the Bible with a faith before forming a hasty conclusion. Then, how can we know the Bible is the word coming from God? That is to check whether it is fulfilled or not.
You may say to yourselves, “How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the LORD?” If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him.”
The Bible says it is not form God, if the prophecy was not fulfilled. Conversely, if it is really fulfilled, it is the clear word of God, isn’t? From now let us see the prophecy of the Bible. Then you will be convinced that the Bible is the word of God.
