I have grown up in a family that believes in God and the Bible, and therefore have never doubted the truth that I have been taught. The Bible has always been there in our family. I never even thought to believe anything else because this makes logical sense.
Yet the question asks why, and so I must answer why. Many scientists believe that there has to be a reasonable scientific explanation for everything that ever happened on earth. They always seem to be coming up with some new explanation for something or another. It never ends. They never even stop to see that the Bible, because God is a God of order, is perfect in explaining these types of ideas. Hebrews 11:1 & 3 confirms this by stating, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen… Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” This would give them all the proof necessary to bring their theories to rest if only they took a minute to look at it.
Scientists are constantly coming up with new theories for the beginning of the world. Some believe that this world came from an explosion or “big bang” in the solar system. Others believe that, over the course of millions and millions of years some electrons evolved into what man is today. Theories of everything are brought to their attention of how many millions of years old this world is already. Yet they cannot confirm any of their speculations because their ways of proof backfire again and again. One way they thought they were going to get more of their evidences straight was when they landed on the moon. They all believed that millions of years of dust would be on the moon. But there was not. Why? Because the world had not started as a “big bang,” and the animals were not evolved. God created the heavens and the earth, the animals, and man. Everything in this world, if you would pay attention to it, reminds you of what God has done. He has all this stated in the Bible for any man to read. Genesis 1:1 states, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
So you would not classify the Bible as a science book necessarily, but its proofs which God inspired to His chosen men along with our faith in Him explain everything there is to know about the world. And we can be assured that our beliefs will never backfire because we believe in a true God and His word, the Bible, is true as well. ❖
