23 Feb Why the Bible is Reliable
There are some doubts on whether the Bible is a reliable source. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. – 2 Timothy 3:16. Even though some people don’t believe that the Bible is reliable, it is. We will list the major reasons why the Bible is reliable.
1. Scientific Facts

2. Prophecies Being Fulfilled
There are some prophecies found in the Bible that are being fulfilled or have been fulfilled already.

4. Supernatural Beings
There are supernatural beings that the Bible are caught on camera by ordinary people such as angels, demons, and idols caught on camera.
5. History in Code
Bible is the only book which has history revealed in code in Hebrew. The Bible contains names of major events and people throughout history.
So it is always a good to study the Bible daily. The Bible is not only a historical book and a book to help predict the future but it is a life manual. The Bible is the only true life manual we only need as humans. Without the Bible people can be easily deceived to believe they are self righteous when in fact they have evil in their heart. The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? – Jeremiah 17:9.
