Words of Comfort: Case closed.

If you want to present evidence to a skeptic that the Bible is real, you will probably have to give evidence that Adam existed, that Eve was made from his rib, that she was spoken to by a serpent, that Noah built an ark, that God flooded the whole earth, that Moses opened the Red Sea, that Jonah was swallowed by a whale…and 101 other Bible stories that are so strange-sounding they are harder to swallow than Jonah’s whale. 

Then again, it would be so much easier if you share the biblical gospel—that God is perfectly holy, that we have violated the Ten Commandments, that Hell is our destiny, and that God is rich in mercy. When any person understands the cross, truly repents of his sins and trusts alone in Jesus, he comes to KNOW the Creator. Personally. God supernaturally forgives his sins and miraculously opens the eyes of his understanding to the inspiration of the Word of God. He believes the Bible. Case closed.
