Listen closely to Adrian Rogers as he explains the power of the word of God. There will never be any greater in your Christian life than your conviction concerning the word of God. The Bible is not the book of Vermont is the book of the ages is outlive out. Love outlive out reach out rank all other books to put together. There is no book like the Bible we read the Bible and the Bible reads cause to love with writing featuring profound truths stated love Astrid Bible teacher Adrian Rogers you know without a doubt the Bible is the word of God. Pastor Roger said if you want to be in! Rather than a? Then you need to be certain that the Bible is the word of God.

In part one of today's message. We learned about the Bible's scientific accuracy and how new studies and groundbreaking discoveries don't take God by surprise. Neither do they contradict his word. If you have your Bible find second Timothy chapter 3 verse 16 as Adrian Rogers reveals more on how to know the Bible is the word of God, find that there will second Timothy chapter 3 and verse 16.

Here is a really matter. Fundamental verse in the word of God.

Listen to it all Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine will reprove correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. You will never be any greater in your Christian life than your conviction concerning the word of God. I've been a Christian out for more than half a century. What keeps me going is not how I feel it is what I know what I know it is coming from the word of God. The Bible is not the book of Mark, is the book of the ages is outlive out love lifted out reached out rank all other books put together. There is no book like the Bible we read the Bible and the Bible reads us or against the word of God today and there are those who literally despise they hate whatever reasons they would wish that the Bible were obliterated.

But not only those who despise it bear.

Those who deny they don't they just say I don't believe I don't believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God there are others like the Colts who don't despise or deny they distorted.

They massacre the Bible with their in interpretations and that plenty of those around one of the ways that I know the Bible is the word of God. It is stood up under somewhat shoddy preaching that estimate the word of God, then there are those who don't distorted, but they dissected, they come to the Bible like it is a math book rather than love story and they bring their minds to it and try picking apart piece by piece and pry out the treasures from the word of God and that cannot be done, then I suppose, however, the greatest enemy of the Bible. People who sit in our churches. They don't despise it. They don't deny it. They don't distorted. They just disregard it. Now they give lip service to the Bible but they don't really study. I would not ask tonight for show of hands, how many people in this room spend more time with the newspaper and television than they spend. Word of God and be embarrassing way disregard the Bible to our own her.

These have gotten married and no man shall part just on the Bible and drought in the heart, you will not be any bigger any better any stronger than you believe in the word of God why it is important understand about his word got your salvation depends upon your salvation is based on the gospel in the gospel comes out of the word of God.

Apart from gospel truth know what to say. You also might be saved. You got to give them something to blame what you want to get the word of God. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

Your growth as a Christian depends upon the word of God as newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word that you may grow thereby, your sanctification depends upon the word of God.

Jesus said, sanctify them with our truth by word is true. Your assurance depends upon the word of God. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name was of God, but you may know that you have eternal life brand. I cannot tell you how important it is that you have a solid conviction that the Bible is the word of God, distinct different, better a higher, more glorious than any other book that would have written now only be five reasons why believe I was word of God. I pray God that he will write these five reasons indelibly upon your heart and so you can say with confidence.

I know the Bible's word of God. I want to start with the first reason which is where the Bible is so often attacked. I believe I was word of God because of the scientific accuracy of the Bible that are those who will tell you well course, the Bible is not scientifically accurate because it was written thousands of years ago now before you say that make certain that you know two things make certain the general science and make certain that you know the word of God to see the Bible does not always agree with science and for that I am infinitely glad that the Bible does not always agree with science. If you've ever been to Paris, you most likely have visited the Louvre that great library and art museum there in central Paris in the Louvre in Paris in one section of books. There are 3 1/2 miles of books on science for a nap in the house that's allowable almost every one of them obsolete because science is changing what is called a scientific fact in one era is not in this era is matter fact in 1861 there was a French Academy of science. That little pamphlet little book. It was an anti-God antichrist anti-Bible book, but it was a scientific book in that day and they listed what they call 51 income from convertible tax that prove the Bible scientifically wrong. 51 scientific practice by mutated interesting thing about that today, more than 100 years later.

There is not a reputable scientist who believes one of those so call 51 fax now, aren't you glad the Bible therefore did not agree with the science of that day at the Bible agree that science and the Bible would have been wrong besides us enough time to catch up with the Bible.

When a scientist says a good word about the Bible and is getting more faith in the Bible just more faith in the scientists. If you Bible from a scientific point of view, it is a miraculous by the Bible teaches about science when Zappa and I take it for granted that the earth is suspended in space. This celestial ball's in space amended always know that you would not know it unless somebody had taught you. The ancient Egyptians who were incredibly intelligent and had done great things in mathematics and science who built the pyramids that were antiquities. Even in the time of Christ's. They believe that the earth was supported on five pillars five gigantic numbers that help appear we would expect to find. Perhaps some of that mythology in the Bible, but in Job chapter 26 and verse seven we read this D God stretches out the north over the empty place and hang the earth upon nothing and they are upon nothing.

That's right. Scientific fact that the earth is there suspended in space how to Job nova Rhapsody oldest piece of literature written literature known to man regarding a fear of upon nothing.

Job 26 or seven in the Middle Ages in the Middle Ages there came the bubonic plague. It was called the black plague of the 14th century it was so devastating that one out of four people died 123.

You do think that the state they tried to do everything they can do to stop the black plague date. They couldn't figure out what caused it, and everybody was frightened of the black plague estimated 16 million people by one of the greatest natural disasters in human history, but it was the word of God that brought it to conclusion, not the scientist for the word of God. Finally, somebody turn to the book of Leviticus chapter 13 verse 46, all the days wherein the plague shall be in him, he shall be defiled. He is unclean, he shall dwell alone without, shall his habitation be bad is to be asked, plague, quarantine giveaway is what they do they people's arms. That's what they do today. When people have these communicable diseases.

You put what you're pointing out that this was written waiver for the day of micro biology waiver for the days when anybody had any idea what a German's germs are invisible later. Know what germs are, in 1840. There was something that took place in the hospitals in Vienna. One out of every five expectant mothers was dying of infection, they would go in for prenatal examinations and they would get infected and the doctors were going from one examination room to the next examination room.

The next examination room without washing and so one expectant mother would be infected and the doctor would fall with. In fact, all of the others that he examined.

It was a doctor, Dr. Semmelweis got the watching that he was the head of the hospital. He said from now on you are going to wash your hands before you examine is matter fact, the doctors and that they would go from the morning and do an autopsy on a cadaver and without washing the hands would come in and do a pelvic examination unexpected. They said you will wash your hands when you leave the board before you go into make these examination well when he did that.

After this, only 1/84.just by washing the hands when I came out more, but then one time. 11/12 died in a row. Even after they wash their hands, that they come out more. Some of I said now you will wash your hands between every examination told the doctor said we can do that next to much time they almost drove him insane, but he stood his ground know what Dr. today would even begin to think about going from patient to patient without scrubbing without changing the latex gloves one friend. What does the word of God say about all this fully will and in numbers chapter 19 verses 14 through 19. This is the law when a man dies in a tent all that come into the tent and all that is in the tent shall be unclean. Seven day that is for the bacteria to die and notice this and every open vessel which have no covering bound. Upon it is unclean and the server touch is one that is slain with the sword in the open fields or a dead body or a bone of a man or a grave shall be unclean seven-day lightning about a juror don't think you know about germs because you're so smart to See that you get things that you can't feel them.

God says don't contaminate people well. I wish I had more time to talk about that.

I'm just telling you the first reason that I believe the Bible is the word of God is the one that is so often criticized for that is its scientific accuracy is not one scientific error in the word of God.

If you understand cruise lines understand the word of God and you have to sit behind the door, sucking your thumb ashamed to stand up for Christ in the Bible that cellular I believe the Bible's were got out of because of his scientific accuracy, but because of its historical accuracy. Now the Bible is not primarily a book of signs, wise medicine is the Bible is not written tells how the heavens goes red because out a good habit. I read that.

But the God who wrote the Bible is the God of all science and Jesus said if I told you earthly things and you believe God has you believe I tell you heavenly things we can leave your flipping line. But not only is the Bible, not a book of science. It is not a book of history per se, but it is historically correct. The wise man said the Bible.

While it may not be a book of history per se. It is his story is a story of God, but people have lampooned the Bible because of its history.

Bible is not historically correct. A great scholar like this are driver was a man who studied the ancient languages of brilliant scholar. He laughed at the idea that Moses even wrote the first five books of the Bible. He said it was impossible for Moses to be lived in that time written the Bible because men did not know how to write during that time so writing was an art that was not known and Moses day but there was another man who Dr. Petrie others in northern Egypt came across some tablets I study about these in school many years ago to LL on Marna tablets. These were clay tablets that a woman uncovered when she was dating her garden in northern Egypt and what they were once messages stamped in the clay letters in writing from a people and Palestine. The people in Egypt and people in Egypt people in Palestine and there were business letters and correspondence, not who did they know how to write well. Brought about as good as ours.

Sending letters back and fall. Now this man. Dr. S on driver was a brilliant man who just flat out wrong.

They did not write the time of Moses and as we told you. Also, how could they prepare receivers have been written had they not known how to write you another historical illustration. Many of you have read the book of Daniel in the book of Daniel is the story of the handwriting on the wall member Bill Sasser had a feast with a thousand of those lords and ladies and he was drinking from the vessels that had been carried away from the temple of God and in the midst of this bacchanalian feast, a gruesome hand against her right on the wall min a min a kcal you Farson.

There is Daniel who came in and read the handwriting on the wall and told the king that says that you been weighed in the balances and found wanting.

Your kingdom is coming to an end. But the point of the whole matter is this the Bill Sasser said to Daniel.

Daniel read the handwriting on the wall. I'll make you the third ruler in the king. Now that historians laughed at that store.

They said that's impossible.

We know it's impossible because we have the historical records of the ancient Babylonians and we know that the last king of Babylon before it fell was not a man named Chas. It was a man named the boat at this on amanita's which are where you prefer to pronounce that tinnitus as well pronounce it now when I notices last king of Babylon, and we have no record of any Bill shall. This is obviously applies fraud. Somebody wrote this story. It never happened. Handwriting on the wall. It never happened and so they they ridicule Bible until one day the spraying of the archaeologist uncovered a cylinder yes his name is on Bill Shaffer's name and guess what, they later discovered about Bill Sasser that Bill Sasser was the son of Mammon. I and that he and his father rule again.

Now leave secular historian was quite correct when he said that now when I this was the last king of Babylon, but it was quite wrongly said to Bill Schaller was not there were co-regents, Mammon -itis. According to Moore history was a big game hunting world traveler, and the kingdom was wrong, not by now tinnitus, but by Bill Sasser. Now you think with me doesn't it make more sense now that never night is said to Daniel, if you can read the handwriting on the wall make you want third ruler making sales already to suppose they had not found the cylinder with bills as his name on what that have made the Bible any less true. It would've been true without that so-called archaeological evidence one trying to say is that the Bible is historically true. You can bank on the record of the word of God some great questions of the Bible. One of those questions in the Bible is how should we skate if we neglect so great salvation. I mean if you turn from God's word is no escape for you. Another great question is, what will you do with Jesus was called the Christ that a great question and you will do something within you will ignore him or listen to him. You will accept him or reject him will crown him or crucify him. But you will do something with Jesus you say well I won't decide about Jesus you just decided not to decide which is a decision great question by what must I do to be say thank God for the answer, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be say how I know not because I feel it the word of God tells Jesus loves me this on the Bible tells me so I can tell you on the authority of the word of God that he will trust Jesus Christ he will save you instantaneously be with you continually give you eternal a man, would you like to follow Jesus right now for something like this from your heart.

God in heaven. I know I'm a sinner and I'm separated from you because of that sin but I believe that Jesus lived a sinless life, and gave himself for me on the cross and rose again to new life and I trust him fully for my salvation today come into my life changed me from the inside out.
