The Bible ought to have a central place in the life and working of every church; and in every pulpit! GOD HIMSELF became a man to give mankind a tangible concrete definite idea of what kind of personality to think of when we think of God.The pulpit's one business is the simple, expository teaching of God's word! Jesus not only came to redeem mankind but to reveal the nature of God.In the early days of the Bible's legality in England, many Christians were willing to pay large sums of money, just for an hour or two with the Bible, and just as people camp out for rock concerts today, they used to camp out waiting turns at John Roger's Chained-Bible!Yes, my friend I am not ashamed to believe that the Bible is the Word of the Living God!
One excellent example is in what the Bible says about Abraham.As I am ever mentioning, the advances of science are constantly giving us a clearer view of the past even causing Mythology to become History as with the Trojan Wars, the legendary Helen of Troy, and the Trojan Horse. People enamored of my mythic art have asked me why I believe the Bible is the world's greatest book and aside from my controversial belief that the literal translation prepared from the Greek and Hebrew for the King James version was secretly re-written in perfect grammatical English by Shakespeare, here are my thoughts on and some illustrations from this, easily the most influential collection of sacred writings of all time to Western Civilization..."" In the last half of the 18th century the French philosopher and infidel Voltaire made the prediction that within 100 years the Bible and all Christianity would be completely forgotten.Voltaire died in 1778, but since that time the world has been flooded with millions upon millions of printed copies of the Bible in hundreds of languages and dialects.Even though it is an Ancient Book, the Bible remains up -to-date and completely relevant for us today. It has survived the examination of critics, it is truly the world's greatest book! "All scripture is given by the inspiration of God and is profitable..." (II Timothy )Of course the Bible does include the writings of many different men spanning across time.Looking at many other early writings for instance those in Babylon, Persia, Egypt and other early civilizations are composed of sheer nonsense and primitive superstition. The reason for the Bible's greatness lies in its unique authorship... It openly claims that each author wrote only as he was moved by the one divine author, the holy sprit. The Bible can be trusted in its history as well as its moral & spiritual teaching.The Bible's bold declaration that it is the divine and protected word of God is supported by any number of amazing, seemingly impossible prophecies and their fulfillments.How about the nation Israel" born again" in one day in 1948 as per Isaiah 66 is one that seemed COMPLETELY impossible.For instance, the opening of Genesis, penned by Moses was actually 'The Creation Hymn', sung for ages, finally written down.But alas, translating it alone would not be enough to get it to the English - speaking people, for almost 250 years after the job was completed the throne of England violently opposed its propagation, cruelly martyring men like William Tyndale burned at the stake for smuggling bibles - struggling to get God's work to the people!There was a time in educated circles that it was considered a mark of ignorance to believe the Biblical record.In the early 20th century experts in the field of archaeology insisted that no civilization even existed in UR of the Chaldeans when the Bible records that Abraham lived there.
