The Bible is True Whether You Believe It or Not

By Justin Johnson

The Bible is true whether you believe it or not.

Stranger: I don’t believe in God or the Bible.

Bible believer: Do you mean they don’t exist, or they are not true?

Stranger: I don’t believe God exists, and I don’t believe the Bible is true.

Bible believer: What do you believe?

Stranger: I believe what I can see, test, and observe in nature. I believe in science. I believe in what I can prove.

Bible believer: You are a man of nature?

Stranger: Yes, that would be accurate.

Bible believer: Do you believe you have a soul or spirit?

Stranger: No. What you call a soul or spirit is a product of electro-chemical processes in our brains.

Bible believer: So, you don’t accept the Bible’s premise that there is a spiritual world and God is a Spirit?

Stranger: That is right, I do not accept that.

Bible believer: Do you think there is any possible way for you to know about spiritual things?

Stranger: How can we if we don’t have souls or spirits? Science has no observable evidence of those things.

Bible believer: Would you call the teachings of the Bible silly, ignorant, or lacking understanding?

Stranger: I don’t want to offend you, but to be honest, yes I do.

Bible believer: Let me get this straight. You are a natural man who does not receive the spiritual things of the God, because they are foolish to you, and you cannot know them, because you don’t have a functioning spirit?

Stranger: That is true. Can you prove to me the Bible is true?

Bible believer: No, but I know why, and I think you just proved to me that the Bible is true whether you believe it or not.

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.” – 1 Corinthians 2:14-15
