Why do Christians rely on bible?

Naturally, we rely on the principles that are found in the Bible to answer the questions. The Bible :

  • It is more than just a historical account that archaeologists use to unearth lost cities and civilizations
  • In it are valuable Truths and Wisdoms for practical living. You might recognize these "Life Principles" are universal so that if anyone applies them, they will discover the wisdom that brings happiness and security to relationships and life in general.
  • We believe that the Bible is "inspired" that means to say that the Words, Facts and Principles are from the Creator.
  • It is God's written Manual to us.
  • God uses the Bible to communicate to us His purpose for creating us, what He intends for us and how we can come to know Him personally and intimately.
  • We are able to "believe" because He has proven His Word to us and therefore God wants to prove His Word to you.
  • The "faith" or "belief" Jesus wants you to have is one that God will prove to you personally from His Words He commits to you in the bible.
Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine (teachings or instructions) is not mine, but His (God) that sent me. 17 If any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
— John 7:16 KJV
