Bible Truth

As C. S. Lewis said about Jesus’ claims (i.e. he is either a lunatic, a liar or Lord), something similar could be said about the choices we face when we consider the book in which those claims are recorded. Either the Bible is a collection of error-laced letters penned by delusional authors who thought they saw and heard things that never really happened, adding interpretations of would-be events which they believed, but which had no correspondence with reality. Or the book is a shrewdly crafted hoax intended to mislead people to believe in things that the authors knew were not accurate or true. Or the Bible is a record of God’s revelation, penned by the means of honest men of sound mind who did not, and would not, embellish or distort the revelation they were conveying.

The latter is precisely the claim that is repeatedly embedded throughout the record. Peter summarized, “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” (2Pet.1:20-21). If they thought God was speaking through them but he in fact was not, instead they were delusional, then we would all be wise to throw away our Bibles and run the other way! Likewise, if the authors were trying to pull one over on us, we should be discerning enough to reject this band of liars and never again expose ourselves or our families to this kind of fraud. But if God was using them to expose his revealed truth, then we ought to be careful to read, study, memorize and meditate on their words ¬for in reality then, they are the words of God (1Th.2:13).
