OK, for many this is an uncomfortable topic, I know it was for me for
years. But before you click away from this page, please at least consider
what I have to present here, and just for a moment try to put aside whatever
it is that makes you uncomfortable. For me it was the Bible-thumpers,
religious hypocrites, and those insidious tele-evangelists! Though my
Catholic upbringing was enough to keep me from becoming an atheist, I
nevertheless seldom delved into religion. However, I later had to ask
myself if my distaste for those "hypocritical, righteous Bible thumpers"
was a good reason to avoid pursuing and knowing the true God. One thing
I think we all could agree on is that if we truly were created it would
be awfully important to know something about our Creator!
I'll make no bones about it and say that I've personally come to believe
that the Tri-une God1 of the Bible
is the Creator. I have found after much research that the Bible is the
only religious book that provides overwhelming evidence that
it is the Word of God. This unparalleled book was written in 3 different
languages over a 1500 year period spanning 40 generations and penned by
more than 40 authors from every walk of life, including kings, tax collectors,
fishermen, peasants, and rabbis2.
The Bible has been read by more people and translated into more languages
than any book in history. Despite its many controversial topics,
and the diverseness of its authors, the Bible has maintained a remarkable
harmony and consistency from Genesis through Revelation.
This site outlines some of the highlights of the strong evidence that
supports the Bible as the true Word of God. I have tried to keep
these highlights as brief as possible, instead of reproducing detailed
information that has already been done by many others all over the Web
and in libraries. I encourage you to compare and contrast the evidence
presented on this site and from other Bible apologetic sources with apologetics
of other religions. After weighing the evidence, if you remain skeptical
I would sincerely ask you to consider what evidence or influence persuades
you to believe otherwise. At the very least I hope that this site will
spur you to think about it.
"Take My yoke upon you and learn
from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for
your souls. "For My yoke is easy and My burden is light".
(Matt. 11:29-30 NKJ)
