Christian Evidence Textbook

The beginning of all rational thought is “God.” “Fear of the LORD” is the beginning of: Proverbs 1:7-“knowledge,” Proverbs 3:7-(morality) “depart from evil;” Proverbs 9:10-“wisdom;” Proverbs 10:27-(long life) “prolongs days;” Ecclesiastes 12:13-(purpose in life) “all.”
Without “God” there would be no “love” (1 John 4:16). Without “God” there is(are) absolutely no absolute value(s) to life on earth (Ecclesiastes 1:1-11).
It should be no surprise, then, that the Bible is the gradual unfolding of the revelation of God, and therefore His verbally-inspired “Christian Evidence Textbook.”
The Bible begins by proving that “God is” and the rest of the Bible proves that “He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). This is a one-verse outline of the entire Bible. “God” is the only adequate explanation of the intelligent design and function of the entire world upon which we all live, and God’s dealings with mankind is the only superior standard of moral conduct that should be the basis for human behavior!
If God made us, then His rules should surely be followed for our best interest and activity. The Bible is the “Manufacturer’s Handbook” and should be carefully followed for the best use of the product (humans).
Therefore the Bible begins in the very first verse showing that there is but one suitable explanation for the material world and human behavior: God (Genesis 1:1). The Creation in a week of 24-hour days, and the weaknesses of humans are all simply set forth in Genesis 1-3.
There is no other book in any religion, nor written by man (philosophical, logical, or psychological) that guides to good behavior and inward reflection like the Bible.
The Creation establishes that there is but one God; the Old Testament establishes God’s superior plan for His faithful followers; and Jesus Christ (and the New Testament) establishes God’s superior love for and value of every soul on earth. When Paul preached to those who had “no gods” he started with the Creation (Acts 14:15-18), but when preaching to those familiar with the Creation, he stressed God’s plan to lead to Jesus Christ (Acts 13:16-41). God is at the “beginning” and Jesus Christ is at the end of the world (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
The “Christian Evidence Textbook” will make “children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world” (Philippians 2:15). Jehovah is God, and Jesus Christ is His Prophet.
