Why we believe that the Bible is God’s word

The Bible has long been declared to be the infallible word of God by those that have gone before us and we have adopted that as a true declaration. I have been sensitized to write this post after having watched a video on YouTube where someone is giving his reasons why he quit Christianity. Many people that responded to his video agree to his views that the Bible is not the word of God. I felt compelled to respond and I do want to share my position on this matter again in this post.


Personal proof

The Bible does not originate in Africa where I live but I have confidence that it is the real word of God. On the contrary, my ancestors practiced a lot of magic and some of our people still do even today. As a matter of fact, my grandfather was a traditional healer and used some of the African magic concoctions to treat his patients and attempt to strengthen his family.

I used to have terrible nights of terrible dreams, physical blanket pulling invisible spirits and moving lights along our bedroom walls while we lived with my grandfather at home. Each time I prayed against these I could realize a change for the better. Sometimes it called for sleepless nights from fear of demonic attacks. After a long time praying for God’s intervention there eventually was a breakthrough. I later enjoyed peaceful nights and I noted that each time I forgot to pray  before sleeping, there would be instances of these demonic attacks.

I, my mother and siblings overcame through praying and outrightly rebuking the devil’s in the name of Jesus whenever they manifested. We used the authority to do so as detailed in the Bible.



Testimonies from other people, just as I have shared mine, form part of evidence of the infallibility of the word of God. I encourage you to take the trouble to search for the truth about God’s word because it really matters. Do not reject testimonies of people that have had encounters that prove that the Bible is the word of God.

There are a lot of testimonies on almost any Bible or Christian related subject that are posted online and readily available at no cost. Yours is to do an online search and get to learn on what others are saying about the Bible. I have watched a lot of testimonies in YouTube about the Bible, what it says and the reality of God. My favorites have been the revelations of the afterlife given to Muslims, Buddhists, Atheists and non-believers. It is always inspiring to hear the truth of Christianity shared by someone who at one point directly opposed Christianity. These are the people that tell you reasons why they did not believe in Christianity and how they got convinced that Christianity is the one true religion.

Someone may ask as to how do we know if these testimonies are true. This is a valid concern because there are fake or even devil given testimonies. The best way is to have your Bible very close to you and cross check what you learn in it.


Recommended testimonies

I like Bill Weise’s testimonies. One of his testimonies give a clear justification of why the Bible takes the position of being the word of God. As you take time to go through the testimonies, you will get to know that the same Bible we have on earth can be quoted in Heaven and it will be the one used when God judges the world.

Abraham Yakubu was also a Christian when he was involved in a road accident that took his life. What he says about the afterlife will open your eyes into the judgment of God. I also like Victoria Nehale and Ian McCormack.


My concluding words

I believe that the Holy Spirit will convince you on what the truth is in this matter. It is not much about what I write to lead you to the truth but what you get to realize who the God of Christians is through your own initiatives. You can only find the truth if you trouble yourself to find it.

Be blessed.
