Mathematical Improbability: How we Know the Bible is True (2022 Edition)
It always baffles me especially when atheists try to debate me on “Bible Facts and Errors”, it’s like listening to a child trying to lecture a soldier on the harshness of war, and all the child has done was read books on war, never stepping on the battlefield. Sure, the child *might be* full of “head knowledge” but still expresses this incomplete/mechanical understanding (without the Holy Spirit) of what war is like. It’s quite a sight as they blabber on and on, delusionally thinking spewing useless propaganda and ideology intimidates. *eyeroll*
We all know, growing up in this secular world, that it inevitably indoctrinates and brainwashes us when we step into “higher education” or college university:
Marxism / Communism / Political Correctness.
Political correctness, if most of you haven’t figured out by now in 2022, is against God and the Bible.
It will claim that the Bible is not true (or at least not 100% true)
But here in this post, I’m going to argue that the Bible is, in fact, 100% true and the infallible Word of God.
How do we know this? Well again,
I’m going to share 4 reasons (In descending order with #1 being the most important):
1. The Bible says so
2. Jesus Christ
3. Bible prophecy
4. The Jews1. The Bible says so
–There are 66 books in the Bible with 40 different authors, living at different times, living in different places. Spanning ~1600 years (1492 BC to 100 AD). And yet, ALL of these stories are harmonized. No contradictions.
-Scripture is not written by man, but inspired through God. As these men were writing, they had NO IDEA what they were writing because they were simply “the vessels” of God’s voice. (1 Peter 1:10,11)
10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: 11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.-Everything in the Bible is not by men, but of God. These Words were designed to get inside you, and prick your heart (1 Thessalonians 2:13, Hebrews 4). We NEED this book to be REBORN, otherwise we’d all be spiritually dead, with no salvation. (1 Peter 1:23)
23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.-From (2 Peter 1:20,21) We know that
20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.A. We take these Words literally as God’s Word
B. That these Words also Prophecy future events (I’ll cover this later)
-The Bible is a book of truth, there are no lies. (John 17:17)
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”Haters of the Bible will say,
“NO!! THE BIBLE IS FULL OF ERRORS!!!!”No kiddo, you just didn’t read into it enough. There are no errors.
“Errors” are MADE UP / INVENTED by the haters. Don’t buy any of their nonsense. They try to sound smart with their broken duct-taped glasses but they are FULL of it.
Dr. Peter Ruckman addresses “problem texts” haters of the Bible will try to throw around in his book, “Errors” in the King James Bible be sure to check it out. (I will not waste time debating pointless/endless minutiae idiots here like to salivate over. I’ve also noticed that 99% of these “false facts” can be googled and rebutted in under 1 minute)
2. Jesus Christ
This has been covered extensively in this (+past) thread . But to review lightly,
We know that Jesus was an actual person that existed that literally walked on earth via
–Historical records / Documented evidence (backed by credible historian scholars)
“But we can’t find his bones in any Tombstones!!!”Well that’s because he rose from the dead and ascended to heaven, which further supports the resurrection.
3. Bible Prophecy
Mathematically, it’s impossible that men could have written the Bible.
I’ll give an illustration,
Let’s say you made a “prophecy”
–There will be a horse named Peter
–This horse Peter will win the Kentucky Derby
–This horse will win at 4:10 pm in the afternoon
–This horse will be brown colored
–etc etc etc”
Lets say you made a total of 10 particulars/prophecies and let’s also assume,
YOU GOT THEM ALL RIGHT (10/10 or 100%)
What are the chances or probability of this?
This would be 1/10^10 or 1/ trillion chance.
Okay, with this in mind, lets apply it to prophecies made about Jesus,
In the old testament, it prophecies 354 particulars that were fulfilled by Jesus
If you do the math, this would be a mathematical impossibility.
How did men do the impossible? Did the men really get 354 particulars correct?
Well no, they didn’t, it was through God’s inspiration
Which brings us to our final point, the Jews
Let’s tie this final point, again, with prophecy.
In the Bible, it is prophesied that God would give his chosen people, the JEWS, to have their land (ISRAEL) FOREVER. (Genesis 12) (Genesis 35:11,12)
11 And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins; 12 And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.If you haven’t been living under a rock,
The news is ALWAYS talking about the turmoil and bad stuff happening in the middle east, which involve the Jews/ Israel.
The fact that the Jews still exist today is a miracle
Since 70 AD, the Jews were without a country
2000 years later, in 1948, Israel is rebirthed (Fig Tree) as a nation again. (Isa 66:8)
8 Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
There is no ancient nation, in the HISTORY OF THE WORLD, that has come back after 2000 years.
Even while H I T L E R exterminated 6 million Jews,
Even while the U.N has tried to destroy Israel.If we examine the last Words in the last book of the Jewish Bible (2 Chronicles 36:23),
23 Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth hath the Lord God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The Lord his God be with him, and let him go up.The last words say this:
“Let him go up” (or BACK to ISRAEL) for Revelation 6 to be fulfilled!!!
In other words, all this stuff regarding Jews/Israel has been prophesied as well!!!
If you’ve been paying attention to this thread, we know the JEWS will be important during END TIMES PROPHECY, and we see these prophecies unfolding before our very eyes here in 2022
If you think men
“Made all this up”
You are greatly deceived and you are only fooling yourself by ignoring the Truth and condemning yourself to Hell.
