The Word of God

The exhibition panel on this topic shows how God speaks to us through His Words as well as through His Works.  Existence of God cannot be proved (like a scientific formula) but there are so many indications and evidence that, taken together, they become difficult to refute.  If that wasn’t the case, how come so many scientists believe in God?

The Bible records history as it happens. That’s true history.  Through the pages of the Bible we can look at what would have been the future to some people - but to us is history.

It is fascinating that with modern techniques what is dug up today often confirms statements made in the Bible which were previously thought to be fiction e.g. Sargon  (a king) written about in the book of Isaiah in the Bible was not mentioned in any other book or scroll – until his name appeared at a ‘dig’ in 1996. 

Consider how unlikely it is that 30 men from all over the Middle East wrote 66 books over a period of 1000 years and their combined efforts would be put together into a single message which did not contradict itself!   The more you read it, the more you see how one part of the Bible supports another. Think of the accuracy that was needed to copy from one book to make a new one without errors.  Easy?  - not 2000 years ago.  When The Dead Sea Scrolls were found they were shown to be written 1000 years before the oldest documents available; yet the consistency between old and new is remarkable.  It points to a Divine reason for its success.    Even though the original languages of the writers were very different the whole book as we have it today all fits neatly together with amazing correlation and with remarkably little ambiguity. 

You would expect a message from God to be relevant for all people of the world throughout time  - and so it is.

It is the only written source of knowledge about God, and, as you read it, you will see that He wants us all to know His purpose and where we fit into it! 

Sometimes God gives a glimpse of the future.  

If you only want a glimpse of the future of the world, look at the the web pages dealing with the next exhibition panels and spot where we are now - but if you want a glimpse of your future in the world, read His Word.
