Bible gives proof of itself- you hear people say it’s a book written by 40+ people with different perspectives at different times who encountered God- it can’t possibly be relevant? WHY NOT!?
If you read 65 documentary books or articles on the same topic, written by multiple people, at different times in history all saying the same thing, wouldn’t that lead you to believe it’s true?
Many don’t even read a single book about aliens, but believe it to be so? “Storm Area 51: they cant stop us all” in 2020 got over 2 million responses. 1500 showed up to the festivals, 150 to the area itself. There’s no historical basis of previous civilizations mention of aliens, nor no actual tangible proof than some hoax photos and superstition. If it were true we would have museums or zoo’s full of them (as many would pay to see a real alien). But we don’t.
Ponder this thought too….
There are over 1000 named people in the Bible, and over 3,000 unnamed people. That puts it at 5,000+ who had a direct memory, history, genealogy, and/or story with God or Jesus. If 1000 people came out and said “this is true” would you believe it? 5,000? More? The encounters with God haven’t stopped either- millions have had prayers answered, health restored, questions answered, and lives saved but they are kept mostly quiet and amongst close friends and family in this day for fear of not being believed or judged. You can still find testimonies everywhere though.
“The Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you above all livestock and above all beasts of the field; on your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.””
Genesis 3:14-15 ESV
God foretold the snake would bruise the heel of Eve’s offspring (Jesus, Son of God) but how could he do that if Jesus died for us?
The heel is a metaphor for the foundation of Gods Word. If he can convince people Gods word isn’t true, or even if parts of it aren’t true, than the foundation (the heel) is injured and people won’t stand on it or support it. That tricky serpent has injured the foundation of the Word Of God by misleading the people away and making them doubt, just like he did with Eve and the fruit.
Let us not be deceived. If you are doubting, ASK. If you even have a question in your heart of- can this be true? ASK! Go to the Bible, pray, ask people about their testimonies, find out for yourself.
“”Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”
Matthew 7:7-8 ESV
