THE BIBLE IS THE WORD OF GOD: PART#4

THE BIBLE IS THE WORD OF GOD

Part#4: The Bible is Scientifically Accurate

          Many skeptics claim that the Bible is not a science book, and they are right. The Bible is not a science book, but it has demonstrated itself to be accurate in whatever it says at a supernatural level. As a result, it’s no surprise to the believer that whatever the Bible does say about scientific topics is 100% consistent with what we can directly observe in the present. 

         What few skeptics are aware of is that the Bible contains many scientific facts that were impossible to humanly know at the time that they were recorded in scripture as well as many facts that were recorded in scripture thousands of years before scientists finally discovered them. This fact demonstrates the supernatural nature of the Bible.

Question: How could the Bible be so incredibly accurate and advanced concerning direct observation science?

Answer: The same God that made the entire universe also wrote the Bible.
