2 Timothy 3:16, 17 -All Scripture is inspired of God... also 2 Peter 1:20, 20 indicates that man was inspired by holy spirit to pen the prophecies of the Bible. The information contained in the Bible was penned over a period of 1,600 years and the writers lived at different times, coming from many walks of life. Genesis tells us how man's problems began and Revelation shows that the whole earth will become a paradise (garden) as it was intended. The harmony of the Bible proves that is came from God and not from man's imagination or thought process; the entire Bible relates in some way to the unfolding of God's purpose which is what we can expect from Almighty God!
This is the best answer of all. It's what the Bible speaks and the Bible is the same thing as God Himself. It's full of power, as God is. John 1:1 says, "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, AND THE WORD WAS God." Please people, don't pay attention to what everyone says. If people don't know anything about the Bible, why would you listen to their man made ideas? The Bible was not made from stories passed down. It was written by men as they were breathing on by the Spirit of God. God didn't play when He wrote His Word. It's anointing with power. I'm qualified to say so because I'm in fulltime Christian service and I study the Bible all the time and have most of my life. It doesn't make me an expert but I know error when I hear it.
All of ther Scriptures ask us to do two things: love God and take good care of each other. If we do that, God has the way to make the way clear for us to move up.
With atheists around, constantly causing hate, is it any wonder God has to hold us back?
