Why Believe the Bible? Internal Evidence
Nature of the Bible's Message
There is still more evidence for the authority of the Bible in this fact: The Bible expresses “God's” thoughts, not man's.
One Bible scholar put it this way: “The Bible is not such a book a man would write if he could, or could write if he would.”
There are many statements in the Bible that people simply would not write. Who would ever write that “all nations” before God are “as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity”? (Isa. 40:17).
Who would acknowledge: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death”? (Prov. 14:12).
Who, other than a man of God, would testify to the futility of man's wisdom and thoughts, even going so far as to say that the thoughts of God are as far superior to man's as “the heavens are higher than the earth” (Isa. 55:8-9)? If the Bible were the expression of human minds, such an idea would never be written.
