I have had many discussions with men about God and His plan for mankind and some have said, "Where did you get this information?" I tell them from the Word of God, the Bible. Some have laughed, some ridiculed, and some stated that the Bible is a book of fairy tales, made up by men, childish stories and anyone who believe these to be true is an idiot?
That's the devil at work. Here is how the Word of God was given to man and it was given in such a way, only a Divine author could have done this!
Over forty different authors wrote the sixty six books of the Bible during a period of 1,800 years; and they all had one theme. The creation and redemption of the human race by God through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
These books of the Bible were written by men from all walks of life such as Kings, Priests, Judges, lawyers, Princes, Shepherds, Soldiers, Courtiers, Statesmen, Musicians, Inventors, Singers, Poets, Preachers, Prophets, Fishermen, Farmers, Tentmakers, Publicans, Physicians, Rich men and Poor men.
They were written in various lands of three continents, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
They were written in different ages and by many men, some who never ever saw each other, knew each other, or had the slightest idea of what the others wrote on the same subjects, yet when all their writings were assembled into one book, there is not one contradiction among them.
Lets suppose forty medical men, each in a different land and age, would write just forty books on how to cure any disease, what kind of cure would such a collection make?
How much unity would one find among their writings?
Collect together forty books of any men on any subject and one will find many contradictions and controversies among the authors.
Who but a divine author could produce such a work, the Word of God, the Bible, through men? Only God!
It is mentioned twice in Scripture in the Psalm's 14:1 and 53:1.
Psalm 14:1; 53:1, "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good."
