Perhaps, the greatest evidence of the Bible’s reliability is its power to change lives. Speaking of its reliability, the late W. A. Criswell once wrote: “The Bible works. Its truths transform the hearts and lives of men and women. It converts to a better life the small and the great. The beggar on the street and the king on his throne, the poor woman weeping in an attic room and the philosopher in his endowed chair, the profoundest thinker, and the uncultured savage are all changed by the power of this Book. The drunkard, the thief, the libertine leave their sin to walk in the light of God’s precepts. The proud atheist becomes a humble believer in Christ by the truths of the Bible.”
Another great preacher, Dwight L. Moody, once said, “I know the Bible is inspired because it inspires me.” Like Moody and millions of others, I know that the Bible is true because the Bible has changed my life. What other proof do I need?
