Is the Bible a Book of Human Wisdom?

The Bible’s answer

The Bible, also known as the Holy Scriptures, does contain many wise sayings. However, note the claim that the Bible makes for itself: “All Scripture is inspired of God.” (2 Timothy 3:16) There is much evidence to back up that claim. Consider the following:

  • No one has ever successfully challenged the historical accuracy of the Bible.
  • The Bible writers were honest men who wrote with openness of heart. Their candor gives their writing the clear ring of truth.
  • The Bible has one central theme: the vindication of God’s right to rule mankind and the fulfillment of his purpose by means of his heavenly Kingdom.
  • Although written thousands of years ago, the Bible is free of mistaken scientific ideas that had gained wide acceptance in ancient times.
  • Documented historical evidence proves that Bible prophecies, or predictions, have come true.
