The Bible says it, I believe it, that settles it.

The Bible says it, I believe it, that settles it.

There are many things in the bible that are probably not applicable in our modern days of living on the New Testament, in the days of our Lord Jesus Christ even the indicators of our calendars years are AD, In the year of the Lord. Before was BC, Before Christ.

There are some dogmatic arguments from some people such as “the bible says that slavery is acceptable, only way to God is through high priests. Sacrifice lambs, etc. ” these are history which in fact I’m happy to read and know with excitement how our forefathers lived. I do not imply that all are not applicable. With a little bit of common sense and guidance from the Holy Spirit, you’ll have the discernment on what’s applicable and what’s not. The ten commandments are still very applicable. Eitherway, I believe the bible is the very word of God. Since it’s the word of God, there is no harm in believeing it. In fact by not believing, it probably bring more harm.

Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

1 Tim 4:13
Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.

Romans 10:17
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Seriously, nobody have to convince anybody to read the bible. Similarly, nobody have to convince anybody to believe in Jesus or the gospel. We are commanded to go out and ” 15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.” from Mark 15.

See? No need to convince. Do your job and share the gospel, let the holy spirit do it’s job to convict the heart of the listener.

Well, the bible says it, not me. And I’m going to believe it. That’s settled.
