Will you believe it?

By Not Known

Do you believe that God is on our side? Is He going to help us? Can He truly do what He said He would?

Skepticism is what many have today about God. That’s why skeptics invented all kinds of stories to help explain the Bible’s miracles; or when they couldn’t explain it, they would come up with theories to dispel its authenticity.

How many of us would believe that God parted the Red Sea? How many would accept the fact that Sarah gave birth to Isaac at old age? How many would believe that Joshua and his army merely marched round Jericho and shouted and the walls just came tumbling down? How many really believe that Nehemiah could marshall the people to rebuild the walls in spite of opposition?

Well, perhaps, some of us merely think that these are just stories, fit for Sunday school kids. We do not have to truly accept them as gospel truths to be Christians.

This is what the Apostle Peter said:

…I want to remind you that in the last days there will come scoffers who will…laugh at the truth. This will be their line of argument: “So Jesus promised to come back, did He? Then where is He? He’ll never come! Why, as far back as anyone can remember everything has remained exactly as it was since the first day of creation” (2 Peter 3:3-4, TLB)

Skeptics think like that. They would have problem believing that Jesus actually died and rose again.

So why do some of us choose to accept some parts of the Bible as truthful and some as mere stories? How about you? Did Moses part the Red Sea? Did Sarah give birth to Isaac at old age? Did the walls at Jericho fall? Did Nehemiah and his men complete the rebuilding of the wall? Did Jesus rise from the dead? If these did happen, what do they mean to us today?

Some people think they are smart and have no need of miracles. They do what they can to find explanations for everything. When there are effects, there must be causes, so they say. So, if I told you what the Bible really says, will you believe it?
