The Bible is a 2,000 year old book. How can it answer questions that I have?

The Bible can answer your questions because they are the same questions humankind has been asking throughout history.

Is there a God?

In the beginning God created… Genesis 1:1

God never tried to prove His own existence. There is a creation, thus a Creator, end of debate.

If there is a God, can I know Him? Yes, God has revealed Himself through the Holy Scriptures, the Bible. In those pages are God’s words written by men inspired by the Holy Spirit so we can know who God is. We can approach a holy, almighty God through His Son Jesus Christ.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14:6

Is there hope in this life? Yes, Gods’ love gives us hope. Our lives will still have their share of problems, but we can face those problems with the power of Gods’ love.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13

Is there an afterlife? Yes

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.

1 John 5:13

How can I spend eternity in Heaven? God is a holy God and only allows those who are perfect and without sin in heaven. But the problem is we have all sinned. Jesus, being God, came as a man to die on a cross because God in His holiness demanded someone take the punishment for mans’ sins. Jesus willingly took that punishment for us. He then rose from the grave and lives with God the Father. All you need to do is admit you’re a sinner, be sorry you have sinned against a holy God and ask Jesus to forgive your sins and accept Him into your heart.
