The Authority of the Bible

The Bible is the literal word of God.  God used different people throughout history to record His message to us.  Not only was His message made for people in Biblical times, but it also applies to us today.  The Bible has had a huge impact on society, and its message brings us hope of everlasting life with God in eternal bliss.  Not everyone appreciates the Bible.  People have tried to destroy it and even today in some countries it is illegal to possess a copy of it.  Despite the ongoing attacks, the Bible has survived and still brings us the true message from God.
