True Bible Teaching

An independent study of the Bible will reveal that the following are key True Bible Teachings:

  1. The Bible is God's word and the only message from him. It is without error, except for copying and translation errors.
  2. There is only one God - the Father. The Holy Spirit is God's power.
  3. Jesus is the Son of God, and a human being, through his mother Mary.
  4. Man is mortal, having no existence when dead.
  5. By living a sinless life, ending with his sacrificial death by crucifixion, Jesus has opened the way of salvation from death.
  6. Belief and baptism are essential steps to salvation.
  7. God raised Jesus from death. Jesus is currently in Heaven, on God's right hand. He will one day return.
  8. When Jesus returns, he will raise his "sleeping" followers from death and grant immortality to the faithful who have tried to live by God's precepts.
  9. His followers will help him to rule, bringing justice, righteousness and peace to the whole world - the Kingdom of God.

WHY IS BIBLE TRUTH SO IMPORTANT?

Bible Truth

THE IMPORTANCE OF BIBLE TRUTH

Is Bible Truth important to your Faith and Salvation ie. will you be saved despite what you believe the bible teaches or does it matter what you believe?

Well the word “truth” appears 237 times in the bible, that alone says it must be important!

Therefore it must be important to understand what “truth” is.

A quick scan of the passages using this word “truth” leave us in no doubt that it is not only important, but vital to our salvation.

John 17:3

3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

1 John 5:20

20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true,even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

1 Timothy 2:3-4

3For thisis good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

 

Clearly then knowing what is Bible Truth is important and vital, in addition to this we are also warned that some would depart from the “truth”…

1 Timothy 4:1

1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry,and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

1 John 4:6

6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

From these passages it is very clear that we need to know the “truth” about God and His Son as it is taught to us in the Bible.  This means we must learn what this is from the Bible itself.

 

Don't let your HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL rest with someone else eg. your pastor or minister, YOU owe it to yourself and your family to be fully convinced of what it is you believe to be sure it HOLDS something REAL for you.

We have all been warned by God that there would be many false teachers and Jesus himself has told us that "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."  See Matthew 7:14

 

Sadly when Christ returns to this earth, many will only then realise that they have believed in lies Jeremiah 16:19

"19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit."

Don't let this be you or your family!

 

BIBLE TRUTH and true faith must be founded on a fully inspired Bible.

“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”  John 17:3

 

Our Commitment to all True Bible Teaching Seekers is that all our teaching will be supported by consistent and clear Bible Passages.

 

The Greek word for "know" in the passage above is 'ginosko' and it means to have a thorough and deep understanding of the subject. 

 

So if you seek "life eternal" then you must truly "know the only true God and Jesus Christ".

The OFFER of LIFE or DEATH

God's Offer of LIFE or DEATH

“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.   See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him… This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life…"  Deuteronomy Chapter 30:12-20

 

From this passage we see how important it is to each one of us that we seek after God and His Word the Bible to us.

 

Without this we have no hope of LIFE, but only a future of DEATH.

 

This Word of God was originally given to the Nation of Israel and later it spread via the Apostles of Christ to the World, that even we today might have this same HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL.

 

It is UP to YOU then to seek out God’s Word, to KNOW what is the TRUTH of God’s Word so that you and your family might KNOW the way of LIFE ETERNAL and the great HOPE of living in God’s Kingdom on EARTH.

 

Do not let your HOPE rest upon others and most importantly on what others teach, search it out for yourself because we have been warned that the churches would be astray from God’s word in the last days.

 

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”   2 Timothy 4:3-4

 

Too much is at stake for you to not act yourself to seek out the TRUTH.

 

Christ himself has told us to do this when he said…

 

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Godis a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

Harmony of Bible and Science Presented in a Series of Articles

01 Introduction to Bible and Science Harmony

Bible and Science - Introduction

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? (Psalm 8:3,4).

The Bible and Science

Does the Bible and science have anything in common?

The question is simple, the answer complex, and without a doubt utterly dependent on the particular bias of the responder. In setting out to write these articles, I make no apologies for my own biases; readers will have to judge for themselves whether or not the thoughts expressed have merit. I believe in both the Bible and science and all that follows is written from that perspective.

An underlying quest for truth

Science has been defined as a search for knowledge with specific reference to the physical nature of all things in the universe. This includes things terrestrial and cosmological, ranging from the origins of man to the creation of the universe. On the other hand, studying the word of God in our Bibles may be considered a quest for faith, addressing in a sense the same underlying question, namely, what is the nature of mankind and what is our place in the universe.

At first blush it seems this is simply a contest between “knowledge” vs. “faith.” Some would be so crude as to suggest that faith in the Bible is based on blind obedience to superstition and legend. Equally, there are people who would claim that science, and scientists in particular, deliberately fabricate their observations to discredit the scriptures.

While there is some minor credence to both of these negative views, my own experience has been that the vast majority of people on both sides of the Bible/scientific divide are honestly seeking for “truth.” Furthermore, at the very heart of both approaches, they have in common a desire to answer the same awesome question: “What is man and what is his place in the Universe?”

Science considers “how”

Scientific inquiry, in its purest form, unravels the question: “How?” The scientist observes nature as it is and seeks by theory and experiment to understand how things function. Controlled experiments then test these theories and observations, which serve as a framework for establishing physical models; these are subsequently refined in an iterative process until a satisfactory picture of natural behavior is generally accepted. Eventually, if everything works correctly, particular questions are answered definitively in the form of “laws of nature.”

On occasion, future observations require modifying, or even scrapping “laws” when new experimental evidence shoots holes in old theories. An example of this is the extension and modification of Newton’s laws of motion that took place at the beginning of the 20th century. It turned out that Newton’s laws were precisely accurate under ordinary conditions, i.e., in low gravitational fields and at velocities usually experienced on earth. However, as the velocity of matter approaches the speed of light[i] the laws of Newton break down. Similarly, when immense gravitational fields are encountered, the classical laws of gravity no longer were effectual. The work of Einstein solved this dilemma when he developed the “special theory of relativity” and a few years later the “general theory of relativity.”

It turns out that the laws of Newtonwere not wrong, at least under everyday conditions; rather they are a limiting case for the usual velocities and gravitational fields experienced on earth. These laws, discovered in the 17th century, are still used every day to design automobiles, fly airplanes and guide rockets to their destinations.

Nevertheless, there is still a fundamental conundrum; science hasn’t a clue why the laws of Newton are of the form they take. Neither, for that matter, can this question why be answered for Einstein’s equations, nor for any other physical law of nature!

The law of gravity

Consider the gravitational law of Newton. Please note that I will try to keep things simple so that they can be readily understood by those without any detailed mathematical background.[ii] This law states that the attraction between two bodies of matter depends directly on the product of their masses and inversely as the square of the distance between them. This simply means that if the distance between two bodies of mass doubles then the gravitational attraction decays by a factor of four; if it triples it decays by a factor of nine, and so on. Hence, if I throw a ball into the air, the gravitational pull of the earth interacts with the ball and both are mutually attracted toward each other. However, since the planet is so massive compared to, for example, a puny ball, we only experience the ball falling back to earth. Nevertheless, the earth has also been attracted to the ball and in turn it moves a small virtually imperceptible, amount. The harder I throw the ball the higher it will soar, and if I give it enough velocity it will eventually escape the gravitational field of the earth (which is exactly what NASA does when it sends a rocket into space).

As well defined and exact as these laws of physics may be, and regardless of how many times they are tested and perform correctly, nevertheless we don’t know why they are of the form that has been uncovered byNewton (or Einstein for more advanced problems).

Why does the gravitational attraction between two bodies depend on the product of their respective masses? Why not the masses divided by one another, or multiplied by some power law function, or anything else for that matter?

Regardless of whether or not you understood the previous sentence, the key mystery is: are the physical laws of the universe unique? If yes, why? And if no, what other form could they take?

Current scientific thinking is that for the observable universe they are unique, but why this is so remains unanswered. Scientists don’t like to call unanswered questions “mysteries”; rather they consider such questions, works in progress. Nevertheless, most scientists would agree that the question “Why?” cannot be answered in terms of the usual scientific method of theory and observation, because this will end up transferring the question of “Why” from the realm of one set of equations to yet another. For example, if one says that the general theory of relativity is formulated the way that it is because of the four dimensional geometry of the universe (which is probably true!), then you still have to ask why is the geometry of the universe the way it is, and so on? The general theory may be a beautiful and perfect (as far as we currently know) description of gravity, but it still is necessarily only an answer to the question “How?”, i.e. how the universe functions when masses interact with one another.

Religion seeks to know “why”

Religion, and for the purposes of the discussion that follows, specifically the Judeo-Christian Bible, presumes to answer the question: “Why?” It gives a very straightforward and unambiguous answer to the question of whyman is here on earth and what indeed is the purpose of the earth (and, by extension, the reason for all of creation).

The prophet Isaiah says: For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else. Isaiah 45:18 (KJV).

The Lord did not create the universe in vain, but to be inhabited. This planet was not just to be filled with vain, purposeless life forms, but with creatures that could render glory to Lord as we are told by Moses in the book of Deuteronomy:But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD (Num. 14:21).

In a sense we might call this latter passage the “prime directive.” It spells out the purpose of God for His creation, namely, to establish the earth as a place that will eventually be filled with a great assembly of men and women who will glorify their maker. By extension, if God created the earth not in vain and intends to fill it with His glory, then a similar purpose can be attributed to the rest of His creation.

The Bible is exact in spelling out the moral and spiritual circumstances that are required for human beings to eventually become part of the glorified multitude that will fulfil the “prime directive” for this planet as outlined by the prophets Moses and Isaiah. It was certainly possible that God could have created perfect beings from the very beginning, but that would not have been very different from fashioning a multitude of robots. Thus we can appreciate, at least from the Biblical prospective, why we are here. On the other hand the Bible is very sparse in providing detailed answers to the question: How?

The Bible is NOT a scientific textbook and the picture it supplies about the creation of the universe, of the earth, and of all the life forms upon it, occupies a scant chapter plus bits and pieces elsewhere, filling slightly less than two to three pages of text in most translations. Similarly, other scientific allusions are tossed out in scattered verses throughout the scriptures virtually as casual discards. Needless to say, scientists have written literally millions of pages over the past two centuries on similar topics.

Passages that comment on “how”

There is no need to reconcile these two very different points of view, namely the scientific quest for understanding how the universe works and the Biblical prospective on why it exists. Since nature and the Bible may both be considered to be the handiwork[iii] of God, we might instead look to see if there are, as it were, coincidence sites, which reveal this duality. The viewpoint that will prevail, in what follows, is to examine certain Bible passages and see how they fare in the light of current scientific thinking. This is not done with the idea in mind that science can prove the Bible; indeed the word of God stands on its own.

Conversely, the Biblical literalists who believe that the universe was created in the year 4004 B.C. appear to want to toss out all the observations of modern science. Such thinking discounts the fact that the Lord is also the author of nature and studying how it works is as legitimate an enterprise as analysing the scriptures.

The danger, especially for young people, is that often science is presented, especially at the secondary school level, as the new religion. The parallel danger is the blind faith approach to religion, which says, in effect, that one must throw out all the observations of science and simply have faith in a literal interpretation of the Bible. Of course, by “literal” religious zealots mean their particular literal interpretation of scripture!

These articles reject the extreme views sometimes put forth by some in both the religious and scientific communities. God is the God of the Bible, as well as the God of nature, and studies of both are entirely within the purview of men and women searching for the answers to the fundamental question of our existence.

CreationScience.com

This website is a compilation of commonly known scientific evidence supporting creation — evidence in the fields of geology, biology, medicine, paleontology, chemistry, biochemistry, physics, astrophysics, and astronomy, and specific research by esteemed scientists, and from my own personal experience as a consulting geologist and biologist.

This site was completed after having grown weary of false evolutionary doctrine promoted by public television, national networks and other media, and taught in our public schools. Although "evolutionary theory" does not meet the universally accepted definition of 'theory' or 'hypothesis' or, for that matter, the universally accepted defintion of 'science' (see section, Creation versus Evolution, for definitions), students continue to be taught evolution as “proven fact”—and later in life, they perpetuate this doctrine as teachers, journalists, and parents without question.

What many people today never hear and realize is the fact that so-called evolutionary theory is not based on known scientific laws or the preponderance of scientific evidence. Rather, scientific creation, as described in the Book of Genesis, is perfectly consistent with all known laws and evidence—and such evidence is overwhelming. The reality is, evolutionary doctrine is built on false assumptions and poor science. It is the greatest deception in modern history.

Why do secular scientists continue to adhere to a false evolutionary doctrine? This site provides the reasons, and summarizes much of the evidence for scientific creation. I ask any skeptical person to give this site an impartial reading before dismissing the scientific creationist viewpoint.
