When You Don't Understand God

DAY 1 OF 5

The Bible’s Validity

It’s fairly safe to say that at some point in everyone’s life they’ll have questions about God. It could be that they are questioning God about something that happened, or if He exists. Not only do people question God, a lot of people question Christians about God, which is why we should know what we believe and why. 

But, before we dive into the questions, we have to know what the source is for the truth we’re seeking. Is it a really smart person who lived hundreds of years ago, a particular belief system that has grown popular, or something that has emerged in the last century? For the follower of Jesus, our source for truth is the Bible. 

The Bible, commonly referred to as God’s Word or Scripture, is our guidebook as and is a key component to help us walk closer with Jesus. While it doesn’t answer all of our questions, it does provide direction about who God is, how to be in relationship with others, how to live with purpose, and how to receive eternal life. The truth we find in God’s Word will help us navigate the questions that continue to plague many. But first, let’s talk about what it is.

The Bible is made up of...

  • ...66 different books…

  • ...written over a 1,500 year span…

  • three languages… 

  • over 40 different writers…

  • on three different continents…

  • ...all inspired by God. 

Although these books were written independently, they speak of one theme throughout both the Old and New Testaments: the redemption of mankind through our Savior, Jesus Christ.

There are over 300 Old Testament prophecies that predict the life and work of Jesus and every one of them was fulfilled in his life. With all of these differences in how and when the Bible was written, there is no way that most of these prophecies could have just been predicted by the authors nor could they have conspired with each other. 

We’ll address a few questions in the upcoming days of this Plan, and spend our final day learning how to live in the tension of the questions that’ll stay unanswered.

When You Don't Understand God

We’ve all had questions about God—some have been answered and some haven’t. The truth we learn from the Bible will help us find answers to many of our questions. For the answers we just don’t get or the questions that ar...
