Do you believe in God? If your answer is yes, then it is wise to believe in the Bible because it is God’s legal document intended to be read and followed by His creation – Us.
Christians in this dispensation are using the Bible or the Holy Scriptures not only to strengthen their faith but because they are looking for God’s love and protection. Reading the Bible makes us feel safe and secured.
Here’s Top 10 reasons why you should also believe in the Bible.
1.The earth is a sphere
At a time when many thought the earth was flat, the Bible told us that the earth is spherical.
Isaiah 40:22 It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in;
2.The Earth free-floats in space affected only by gravity
Some sources declared the earth sat on the back of an elephant or turtle, or was held up by Atlas. But the book of Job was written about 600 B.E, (nearly 2600 years ago), where God declared the “the earth is hanging upon nothing.
It was only on the 17th century AD when Apollo 8 had seen the actual view of our Earth from the space when they first landed on the moon.
He stretches out the north over the void, and hangs the earth upon nothing.
3.The continents were created as one large land mass
Many geologists agree there is strong evidence that the earth was originally one super continent – just as the Bible said way back in Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
4.Our bodies are made from the dust of the ground
Scientists have discovered that the human body is comprised of some 28 base and trace elements – all of which are found in the earth.
Genesis 2:7 then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being
During the 1950s, Watson and Crick discovered the genetic blueprint for life. Three thousand years ago the Bible seems to reference this written digital code in the book of Psalms.
Psalms 139:16 Thy eyes beheld my unformed substance; in thy book were writ
ten, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, whe
n as ye
t there was none of them.
6. Circumcision on the eighth day is ideal
Medical science has discovered that the blood clotting chemical prothrombin peaks in a newborn on the eighth day. This is therefore the safest day to circumcise a baby.
Genesis 17:12 He that is eight days old among you shall be circumcised; every male throughout your generations, whether born in your house, or bought with your money from any foreigner who is not of your offspring,
7.God has created all mankind from one blood
Today researchers have discovered that we have all descended from one gene pool. For example, a 1995 study of a section of Y chromosomes from 38 men from different ethnic groups around the world was consistent with the biblical teaching that we all come from one man (Adam)
And he made from one every nation of men to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their habitation,
8.There are mountains on the bottom of the ocean floor
Only in the last century have we discovered that there are towering mountains and deep trenches in the depths of the sea.
Jonas 2:6 at the roots of the mountains. I went down to the land whose bars closed upon me for ever; yet thou didst bring up my life from the Pit, O LORD my God.
9. God has given us the leaves of the trees as medicine
Ancient cultures utilized many herbal remedies. Today, modern medicine has rediscovered what the Bible has said all along – there are healing compounds found in plants.
Ezekiel 47:12 And on the banks, on both sides of the river, there will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither nor their fruit fail, but they will bear fresh fruit every month, because the water for them flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for healing.”
10.Proper Human Waste Disposal
Some 3,500 years ago God commanded His people to have a place outside the camp where they could relieve themselves. They were to each carry a shovel so that they could dig a hole (latrine) and cover their waste (In our present time, medical experts have discovered improper human waste disposal leads to airborne diseases such as E.coli, salmonella, Streptococcus at Staphylococcus. )
Up until World War I, more soldiers died from disease than war because they did not isolate human waste.
You shall have a place outside the camp and you shall go out to it;
13 and you shall have a stick with your weapons; and when you sit down outside, you shall dig a hole with it, and turn back and cover up your excrement.
There’s a lot more reasons to know aside from these. More useful information and knowledge for us to live the best of life on earth. It is undeniably true the Bible is a book that came from God. Entrusting your life and fate to God will definitely give us peace and the rest of our soul. Thanks be to God.
